Blues Now In Big Trouble

Let`s face facts here, it`s not looking good for Birmingham City after they managed to put in the worst performance of the season against Fulham, when only a win would do.

Blues let themselves and the fans down after falling to a 2-0 defeat at home to a Fulham side who benefitted from two goals from Brede Hangeland.

The first goal early on arrived in a bit of a bizarre way. Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer`s long kick up field was allowed to bounce by Roger Johnson and almost caught out Ben Foster.

Luckily Foster managed to get the ball out for a corner from which Hangeland rose highest to head in Jonathan Greening`s kick.
Andy Johnson headed wide, Steve Sidwell was denied by Foster after running from halfway unchallenged and then Bobby Zamora rattled to post with a header.

Fulham should really have been out of sight by the time Blues had a chance and that came off Martin Jiranek`s chest.

In the second half Fulham continued to turn the screw, Zamora was sent clear but failed when he tried to chip the ball over Foster.

Then Sidwell smashed a shot against the post before the second goal arrived and that came when Greening`s corner found its way to Zamora. His close range header was cleared off the line by Barry Ferguson, but Hangeland was on hand to volley home the loose ball.

Eidur Gudjohnsen had a good chance of adding a third but fired wide and Clint Dempsey forced Foster into a low save.

Blues tried late on but produced little and were then reduced to ten men when substitute Alexander Hleb limped off with an injury, forcing them to play the final 10 minutes with 10 men.

Tottenham next week, I fear we may be looking for favours from United and Stoke.
