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

Gaffers View: Chelsea home 1-0



The thoughts of Birmingham manager Alex McLeish after the game with Chelsea on Saturday.

'I've always said a good keeper is paramount. He can win you championships, earn you points, save you points, or keep your team in the division.

'Ben Foster has been superb for us. I thought the criticism of him with England was a bit harsh. He made some great saves and in other games has been on top form since he came here.

'We got a bit of luck but I would say that in recent weeks we have deserved to win games which never went our way. We have had plenty of bad luck this season so far. Maybe we got a bit of luck this time.

'There is paranoia when you are in the bottom three and so much fickleness in the game. It is November, not the end of the season, but you just have to accept all the things that are said and get on with it.'
