'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Birmingham More Robust at the Back

Birmingham City manager Lee Clark is convinced his sides defensive problems last year are some way to being order and done with. The Blues boss believes it was a big factor in the team struggling.

"Our defensive column, goals against column, was poor,"

Clark is not wrong, Blues were a mess at the back quite often conceding two in quick succession.

"We have to rectify that and that`s the whole group, myself the manager addressing it and bringing in players who will, too."

Birmingham have strengthened massively at the back, in fact we polled our readers and found that fans now thought defensive was Birmingham`s most solid position for this coming season.

"I believe we have done so and I am happy with the defensive options. We have got good competitions in all areas."

Blues have made plenty of signings at the back, Gavid Gunning; David Edgar; Jonathan Grounds; Grant Hall and the team are also welcoming back Neil Eardley from long term injury. Blues haven`t been tests defensively quite yet, that first team unfortunately comes as Blues start their season away at Middlesbrough.

I do fear we haven't been tested at the back and for all that attacking optimism we just don't know how solid we will be yet! I'm going for a Robbo and Gunning partnership and Edgar sat infront of them

Yes, but last year when we had a couple of injuries, we had Thorpe and Blackett at CB.. Surely we have depth now at the back with Grounds, Edgar, Packwood, Hancox, Robbo, Hall, Edgar...

You are right I don't deny that, they will be better, just how much we cannot know yet right?
