Many Birmingham City fans have taken to Twitter to react to a message from Marc Roberts after his side’s heavy 4-1 home defeat to Fulham yesterday night.
The Blues arguably matched their opponents for much of the contest at St Andrew’s, however it was Fulham who emerged victorious due to their clinical nature in front of goal as Denis Odoi, Aleksander Mitrovic and Harry Wilson all found the net, with Troy Deeney scoring a consolation from the penalty spot for the hosts.
As a result of the defeat, Birmingham currently sit in 10th place, with Lee Bowyer’s men having started the campaign largely well in the Midlands.
Naturally it didn’t take long for many of the Birmingham City faithful to take to social media to respond to Roberts after he posted a message of apology in the wake of the defeat on home turf.

Robbo, everyone has been superb so far this season, don't beat yourselves up over this result
We'll be ok, pushing for play offs in my opinion
They're league leaders
It's a game of football, a fan on the Tilton would of happily sat through that rather than go hospital 🤞🏽

Tell the lads you carried on and didn’t throw the towel in (no pun intended Marc!) ..was never a 4-1. Keep playing like that with the ball and that intensity & we’re on the right lines. KRO!

You’ve had a great start to the season, don’t beat yourself up about it. Weird game and we actually played quite well, they’re just very clinical. Forget about that one and we move on to Saturday – 4000 bluenoses in Peterborough! #BCFC #KRO
