Vital Reading Season Preview – Birmingham City
Club – Birmingham City
Founded – 1875
Nickname – Blues
Ground – St Andrew’s (Capacity: 30,009)
Manager – Chris Hughton
When we face each other? – Sat 5th November (H) Sat 28th April (A)
Last Season Finish – 18th Premier League (Relegated)
Season Preview – Birmingham have proved to be a bit of a yo-yo team in the past few years, only finding their feet by staying in the Premier League 2009/10 with a 9th place finish.
However, in the next season they won the Carling Cup, only to go down on the final day and eventually losing manager Alex McLeish to Aston Villa and appointed former Newcastle boss Chris Hughton.
Despite them going to lose some key players, I believe they have a squad and infastructure capable of going straight back up as Champions.
My Prediction – 1st
