Looking forward to this season, and a good way to kick off. Should be a good game!


Think we need to get the ball rolling, so the first 5/6 games could be crucial. Sheff U, Swansea, S***horpe, Donny, Bristol City and Ipswich are all winnable.


Cheers (first post :) )

    • what about one with two good feet and can play all across the back?
    • Think for me should only be looking at a left footed CB who can play LB or vice versa 
    • I’d like to see Browne given a chance up top with Sporar when he’s back fit. He has pace, power and played well in that position a few times just before he was injured. Ikpeazu and Watmore both have something missing for me. He had 2 goals and 1 assist in 138 mins last season playing as ST or SS. 
    • 1. Are you Warnock in, or would you prefer him gone? I'm happy for him to stay, as sacking him mid-season would mess up the transition to the new manager.   2.  Looking at the impact our new signings have had recently, just how good was our summer window? Hard to judge really. They didn't look too clever up until our last 3 games...a bunch of budget journeymen who were simply brought in to provide cover for the first teamers. We've looked good against poor opposition and some of the new guys are starting to establish themselves, but this game will show us if they really are as good as we hope they are.   3. Which of the current injured players would you put straight back in the team when fit? (Fry, Bola, Dijksteel, Hall, Browne) [Not bothering with Ameobi or Fisher as they aren’t real] Fry, Bola and Dijksteel. The others would make the bench.   4. What’s the best thing to come from Birmingham? Jaguar cars...with Judas Priest a close second. 5. Is Šporar the best striker we've had since Bamford? Again too early to tell. We can properly judge at the end of the season.   6. Starting 11 and formation? Tough call - Brum seem quite adaptable. They've gone 3-5-2, 3-4-3 and 3-4-2-1 in previous away matches. 3 at the back seems to be fairly constant, so I'd keep the same team and formation, as far as possible. Though maybe Bamba & Tav might need a rest.
