Another Poor Start For Blues.

Another Poor Start For Blues.
Alex McLeish was disappointed to see Birmingham get off o another poor start, this time against Liverpool at Anfield.

McLeish watched his side go one down inside the first ten minutes once again, this time it was Maxi Rodriguez who got the goal.

The same player went on to get a hat-trick added to that another one each for Dirk Kuyt and Joe Cole and it all adds up to a right good thrashing.

Two games in a row we have conceded in the first few minutes and that's just not on against the top teams,' McLeish told Sky Sports.

'It doesn't mean you can't come back, we have done that before, but you do give yourself a mountain to climb. It
gives the other team massive confidence and the home crowd are really on top of you.

'Then we have conceded another soft one for Liverpool to go two ahead. You just cannot, at this level, concede goals like that.

'The players are better than they showed today, no doubt about that, but we have to look at things and find out how we get back to our best level for the next game.'

Liverpool played very well and deserved to beat the blues.

No argument from me there mate, we were outclassed in every department. King Kenny has worked wonders for you guys.

I hope you don't go down, want all the midlands teams to do well in the PL and close the gap between London/Manchester. My predictions for the drop are West Ham, Blackpool and Blackburn with Wigan narrowly escaping
