    What happened?

    Well the bubble has burst,I think Mowbray must realise by now that Ellington is a DONKEY!! and if Wigan come back for him he ought to #$%$ their hand off!!,we really need another option up front at the moment realistically we only have Phillips and Kamara,Hartson doesn't like to put a lot of effort in either or he is not fully fit and therefore should not be considered until he is,what was wrong in giving Nicholson a try?
    Zuberbuhler is another who ought to be shown the exit door,bringing Hoult back would even be a great improvement!
    I think in January,if not before Mowbray should be looking for one or two new strikers and a goalie,what do you reckon??

    • Dont panic.... Plenty of games left yet.we been playing well and in my opinion we will #$%$ this division you wait and see

    • I think you need Earnie!!! I dread to think where we would be if we hadn't managed to sign him from the baggies. Having said that, knowing Delia we could well be selling him in the January transfer window if we are mid table ( got to finance those pies ! ).

    • Yes. Yes. Yes.... Get rid of ZZZZZZuberbuhler and Ellington. Over paid, overweight and over rated!
      We actually pay to watch these who only give what they think they can get away with.
      The match is played to the whistle NOT 45 minutes each half, and that is why we struggle to keep up the upper end of the table.
      Just look at how many we concede just before the break and full time!

      • Baggies Boing Boing whats the matter with u guys??
        its not ur strike force??
        its ur defence lol..
        alright u didnt score against us Birmingham but..
        u have scored much more than us..
        its the defence which needs to be attended to, i think its confidence really and dont keep on booing the players or hurling abuse at them for this takes away their confidence after all they r only kids they dont get any education after 16 so they need a cuddle guys..
        u guys have the best squad in the league..
        the only thing missing from ur team is confidence..
        look at Steve Bruce after u guys sacked Robbo He was against the ropes but he's a Battler and now look we have won 5 games on the spin and 4 clean sheets, just a few weeks a go we were 12 points behind Cardiff now it is only 3..
        if anyone bubble looks burst its Cardiff..
        Common Baggies Boing Boing we wanna go up together and bring back the pride to Birmingham :)
        and do the oo aahh to our neighbours lol..
        gr8 fans at the Albion.. :) Goodluck!
        Keep Right On!

    • Amazing isnt it, one defeat in 5 games, (excluding the Arsenal game) and people are saying the bubble has burst! I agree we are missing Phillips and that Hoult is better than Zub, but for gods sake look at the table. We're third, scored 14 and conceeded 5 in the last 5 games. As for your comments about Ellington I actually think he just needs a goal, and I dont here you calling for Kamara to go and he missed chances against blues! Perhaps if the ref had given a penalty when Kamara went down things may have been different

    • I think generally yeah we should ditch most of the older strikers and try to find some young talent up front, is Nicholson making the bench? Surely he could put in a better last 20 mins than Hartson? I guess when you want to kill off the game then Hartson can hold the ball up. Ellington is a sub as far as I can see play him only when you are forced to.

      I wonder what Zube and Hoult are doing in training is Hoult that bad!?? Least he has confidence and the players trusted hime when he played regularly. Zube must be amazing in training maybe he bottles it in front of a crowd?

      What formation best suts Kamara and Gera? Should we be going 4-5-1 with Kamara playing a roaming Rooney role behind the striker (Phillips?) and Gera in the Gerrard/Lampard role?
