Birmingham City went undefeated for 7 league matches which started on August 27 when they overcame Norwich City with a scoreboard of 3-0 and this string continued going until October 14 when Nottingham Forest defeated Birmingham and this victory was particularly important for Nottingham as they were edging closer and closer to the bottom relegation zone.
Many Birmingham fans will be fearing at the possibility of losing David Cotterill in the summer, but manager Gary Rowett hopes that the player returns from international action after a fine Euro 2016.
Birmingham City have once again failed to reach the Premier League – even though the play-offs – after they could only finish in the bottom half of the table.
Birmingham International Holdings is the company that owns the Championship League club and it has reported that a former employee of the club might have left £2.5m unaccounted for. The parent company of Birmingham City FC has already told this news to the police in their region which is in Hong Kong and they are now investigating this incident.
"The Company has reported the suspected misappropriation of funds to the Hong Kong Police Force and they are currently investigating the matter." This was part of the statement that was released by Birmingham International Holdings.
Birmingham manager Lee Clark has stated that he is hoping that the club can do a Leicester City and do well over the next few years after only narrowly managing to avoid relegation to the League One. Birmingham escaped the drop on the final day of last season, but he is now hoping that the last day relegation survival will now be a thing of past at the club. Leicester suffered a similar fate a few years ago, but they have now been promoted to the Premier league after winning the Championship with a record points tally.
Birmingham city manager Lee Clark was delighted man after his Birmingham team managed to avoid relegation by the skin of their teeth. Birmingham came into the final weekend in the championship as one of the teams involved in the relegation dogfight. For long periods of the match against Bolton Wanderers, it looked like they would be relegated to the third division of English football. This was primarily because they were looking totally out of the picture after conceding two goals in the second half.
Birmingham City has conceded more than 29 goals in their past 16 league matches and their recent streak of negative results has left them sitting in the bottom few spots of the Championship league with the relegation zone being only a few points away.
The head coach of the club, Lee Clark has been struggling trying to find players that can consistently play at a high level in the defence and things are even tougher now that they have lost Bartley and Burn with injuries.
The Championship club Birmingham City has struggled in this season trying to keep their head above water as they scrape the lower section of the league and after not being able to pick up positive results in their home turf, it has been officially announced that the assistant manager and the first team coach of the club have been sacked.
Kyle Bartley told that the Blues need to get some momentum when Blackpool comes to St Andrew's on Saturday. Birmingham City is looking forward to this match as a springboard for the rest of the season.
Lee Clark's team is looking for their very first consecutive wins in the season since April when Blackpool come St Andrew's. With matches against Bournemouth, Middlesbrough, Barnsley and Doncaster Rovers and to follow, this is a good scope for Birmingham City to finally rise up Championship.
Birmingham city have made a poor start to the season under the management of Lee Clark, who has come under pressure in recent weeks. However, the manager has said that he is not prepared to look at the table right now because it is still early in the season.
He is only prepared to win football matches as it comes. When asked about how he would judge the start of the season, Clark said that it would be a success if the club managed to beat Sheffield Wednesday in the next league match. This is because he was seeing the season as just one game and not worrying about the past results.
