Ben Foster is no doubt stunned over how boring his team is playing
Birmingham City currently sit in 16th place, with 18 points from 17 games.
As an Arsenal and Fulham fan, I have been obliged to watch the Blues play two games this season. They were unequivocally the most sleep-inducing displays of football that I have ever seen in my life.
Despite promises to the contrary, Carson Yueng's 2009 takeover of Birmingham City has done little to change the make-up of the Blues.
Manager Alex McLeish has brought in some talent, most notably Alexander Hleb and Jean Beausejour, but these and other incoming transfers (see Michel, Martin Jiranek, Enric Valles, and Matt Derbyshire) have largely been used to warm the Blues' bench.
This is an awfully perplexing transfer tactic that doesn't appear to be improving results on the field.
Recent transfer Nikola Zigic has gotten some minutes on the pitch, but he has been an outright flop.
Birmingham still don't have a single effective striker.
Did I mention that I think Birmingham are boring? Their defensive, counter-attacking football makes watching Tron seem exciting (in case you were wondering, it should be noted that I dislike watching lazer tag for two straight hours).
I expect the Blues to be relegated. When/if they do, I will be pumping my fists.
