Lee Clark told the Birmingham Mail yesterday that he was pleased with the performance against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and pointed to the fact that Blues have only lost one game in their last seven and were thus making progress in their bid to climb the table.

Birmingham City sealed an amazing stat this weekend when Yann Kermorgant scored in the match against Charlton, clocking up an entire year without a goalless draw. The streak stretches back fifty-four games in all competitions to the match against Hull City on February 14, 2012.

The P Word

Talking Points sponsored by John Hicken Industrial roofing and cladding materials

After Birmingham City concluded back-to-back wins for the first time this season in the Championship by beating Nottingham Forest 2-1, the optimists have re-emerged online and I’ve seen people dare to mention the P-word. Is it possible?

Home Wins and the Lack of Them in the Championship

Talking Points sponsored by John Hicken Industrial roofing and cladding materials

I heard a statistic quoted from the Tom Ross show at the weekend about the paucity of home wins in the Championship and bearing in mind Blues have lost two on the bounce at St Andrews it set my mind thinking. Is this evidence that the Championship is more even than ever before and thus maybe proof we shouldn’t be so worried about our form as we have been?

A little while back I wrote a piece about some of the facts and figures surrounding this season, and after coming across an excellent statistics website (courtesy of NevBCFC on the BCFC Free Forums site) I thought it might be time to add some more.

Decisions, Decisions – Are Blues Penalised By Winning Too Few Penalties?

Talking Points sponsored by John Hicken Industrial roofing and cladding materials

As I was walking out of St Andrews on Saturday, I heard over the PA that Southampton had come back from 2-1 down to beat Millwall 3-2 – which didn’t surprise me much. When I heard that the two goals were from the penalty spot and both penalties were, ahem, a bit soft – well, that didn’t surprise me either. After all, everyone knows Southampton have had a ton of dodgy penalties this season haven’t they? I thought this needed a bit of research.

Tired and Weary – is the amount of games a valid excuse?

Talking Points sponsored by John Hicken Industrial roofing and cladding materials

It’s something we’ve been hearing all season – Blues are tired out because of the amount of games they have played. I wondered if this was a fact or fallacy; have Blues played a significant amount of games more than other teams? And if so, is it possible that tiredness is the factor people are making it out to be.

With last night being our fifteenth match unbeaten in all competitions (matching the unbeatables run of 2009/10) I thought I’d take a look at some of the other statistics out there in what is turning out to be an amazing season for Blues.

Trapdoor pt II

Talking Points sponsored by John Hicken Industrial roofing and cladding materials

Two and a half weeks ago, I posted this article about how I thought the relegation scrap might work out. One thing in particular I made clear was my long-held belief that this season thirty eight points would do for survival. Now we’re a bit further down the pike, and inspired by pieces like this one from the Telegraph, I thought I’d take another look.

Trap Door

Talking Points sponsored by John Hicken Industrial roofing and cladding materials

How many points will guarantee Premiership safety this year? According to most pundits, 41, 42 or maybe 43 points will see Premiership clubs stay above the relegation trap door – higher than the oft-vaunted 40 points total most teams look at the start of the season. However, I believe this is wrong – I’ve said in the past 36 points would do it, and I’m still confident no more than 38 will be needed.
