Birmingham City

‘Legend for us’ – Plenty of Birmingham fans pay tribute to one man after Swansea win



Birmingham City picked up a big three points in their battle to avoid relegation from the Championship on Friday, as they beat Swansea City 1-0 at St Andrews.

The hosts missed a big chance to go ahead in the first half, when Lukas Jutkiewicz saw his penalty saved by Freddie Woodman in the Swansea goal.

But after 90 minutes where neither side were able to break the deadlock, Birmingham were handed the chance to snatch a winner in stoppage time with another penalty, and this time Scott Hogan made no mistake from the spot.

The centre back produced another impressive performance since the recent appointment of Lee Bowyer to control his side’s defence and prevent Swansea from finding the opener, something that did not go unnoticed amongst the Birmingham fanbase as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game.

Here, we take a look at what some of those Blues supporters had to say about the 29-year-old following his latest showing.
