At this stage of the season, I think most Birmingham City fans would prefer winning ugly to losing better. The stats in Garry Monk’s first two games looked better but you don’t get points for possession or passion. In the game against Cardiff, Birmingham had 16 shots, with 7 on target, but one of Cardiff’s shots ended up in the goal.
Earlier this season, I saw Hull beat us 6-1 and they have been playing well recently. So, the fear will be there when I go to watch the game this afternoon. But there will be hope too. We Blues fans are remarkable creatures, aren’t we? Despite years of having our hope crushed, it still survives.
