Birmingham fans have been talking about Saturday’s match and it has got the emotions stoked up.
Below you will see plenty of savage comments from Blues supporters but rather than being aimed at Newcastle United, they are targeting their own club!
Gianfranco Zola takes the brunt of the criticism and the vast majority of the Birmingham fans see zero chance of their team getting anything tomorrow.
In fact the majority appear to want the Italian out of their club and after seeing Zola take their club from joint sixth to only five places and six points off relegation it isn’t hard to see why.
In all competitions, Birmingham fans have seen their team win only three of their last 21 matches, most of them under the former Chelsea player.
Hopefully Newcastle take advantage of what looks like an open goal tomorrow at least that is if you believe the home supporters.
Comments from Birmingham fans via their top message board SmallHeathAlliance and others:
‘The Newcastle game gives the Blues fans a chance to make their feelings known.
We have to stand together and let Zola know that HE IS NOT WANTED.
We have to show that we have too much pride in out club to let a clown like Zola take us into League 1.
The only way that Pavlakis will be convinced is if the fans unite (like never before) and from 2.45 till 5pm ram the message home to the Board.
‘I think Blues 0 – Newcastle 3
I think Zola will still be in charge afterwards, who would come in now realistically?
Should have made a change 5 games ago.
I thought the relegation fight Lee with Clark in charge was bad, but this time I think our luck’s run out, we cannot defend, we cannot score, we seem to have better players now if you list them compared to Clark’s days which can only point to one person responsible.’
‘We have more chance of finding Lord Lucan sitting on the back of Shergar, than keeping a clean sheet.
So as we cant score goals either, the chances of stopping up are either next to nil or nil itself.
Lets face it with Zola in charge, we have less than no chance !!!’
‘Our chances of picking up points in the next three games (starting with Newcastle) are very slim, we just have to hope some minor miracle happens.
We haven’t been playing well at all, but also we haven’t had any luck either, so we need that to change as well.’
‘Whatever side we put out, I can only see a defeat – anything like the last 2 performances, a heavy one at that.’
‘If we play like we did in the cup game (v Newcastle) at home, we’ll win.’
‘You mean when we played their under 11’s and got tonked by them in the replay?’
‘With Ipswich and Brighton away to come we could be close to bottom 3 shortly.’
‘I see no basis for any optimism, think it would have to involve a lot of luck if we are to get anything.’
‘It really doesn’t matter what team we put out, we are going to get destroyed.
Three points from relegation on Saturday night.
And I bet they still don’t fire the idiot midget.’
‘The worst thing is that we can’t even look at a single fixture now and say “we’ll win that”. Awful situation to be in.’
‘Energy and discipline are the keys for this game.
I think Keita has been ok defensively at wing back (despite what some have said) but we need to be solid and able to break with pace.’
‘If somehow we could play all 18 (of matchday squad) we are still not winning this game.’
‘Newcastle aint all that good and are prone to hiccups. The defeatism is frightening.
We need to bring back national service, put some backbone into people.’
