Pathetic from us against a hard working pub side. I so look forward to the day we have a proper manager.

No matter where we finish this season, Bruce has got to go in the summer. Diabolical football for long periods. Massively frustrating

Awful against Wolves, ok at home to Fulham and shit again today.
This is not a promotion winning set up.

Did Hogan so much as touch the ball when he came on?

Were we below our standard or was it that we didn't have that piece of individualism to score. The way we play, there is a fine line between winning, or not. With the players we have, we should be playing far better.

Pretty shit game. As far as I can remember we prettt much always play like that there. Just sometimes we sneak a goal

Davis was so much better than Kodjia

Jedinak and whelan v good

Absolutely wank until Jedi came on and then actually quite good. Probably a fair result in the end. The defenders all played well, the midfield were fucking awful before Jedi. How Onomah stayed on is beyond me, truly awful performance that the likes of Gardner, Lansbury and co would have been disappointed with. Hourahane was also shite, Snodgrass and Adomah very under-par. Whelan looked miles better with Jedi by him. Kodjia was a threat when he had the chance, he had more in the last 25 mins. Davies looked awesome after he came on too.

Bruce just depresses me. He''s no modern day coach. He could possibly get a job driving one but he's no modern day coach.

I hate having Bruce as manager, you know. Even when we win it's hard to build up much optimism or to look forward to us playing again.

Even when we go on a decent winning run it's always at the back of your mind there's a cowardly away performance around the corner.

We were so poor today for an hour.

I just don't see how we can get top 2 approaching many away games like this.

Birmingham are not just going to roll over and let us play round them. It was a battle and difficult at times but this is always one of our hardest away games.

We weathered a tough 15 mins at the start of the second half but his substitutions took the game away from them and he deserves credit for that. A couple of inches and we take a 1-0 and a sound away performance.

You think that was cowardly today?

His contribution was passing to them once, getting caught in possession  and doing an impersonation of a sausage in a football kit.

Whelan was man of the match and he was useless. I donít like a lot of our players but Kodjia irritates me more than most of them.

I agree with the points above that this was going to be a tough away game. Blues were always going to raise their game and we should be happy with a point. Next week they'll be back to shit again, and Villa should look ahead to giving Preston a bad time.

Useless? He was exactly what we needed on the pitch today.
