‘Time to start planning for next season’ – Birmingham dream over? Opinion



Birmingham City look like being a loser in the ultra competitive Championship promotion race this season after a trio of back-to-back defeats has left Garry Monk’s side down in 12th place, six points off the last play-off spot, with only nine matches remaining.

Monk will be hoping he can stop the rot when he makes the trip to in-form Preston this weekend, prior to the international break.

So have Birmingham lost too much ground in the race for the play-offs?

We discuss……

Louie Chandler

“I think you have to say they have now.

“Monk has done a tremendous job even turning them into a top-half team but the six-point gap is looking insurmountable.

“Time to start planning for next season.”

Gary Hutchinson

“Far too much.

“The fact they were there anyway was a shock.

“They had no right being top ten, not with their concerns off the field.

“What a job Garry monk has done.”

Jay Taylor

“They are only six points off, but I think it is more their form that will prove making the play-off problematic.

“Points-wise it is still a gap they can close down but form wise, they are in a slump, and that will affect them the most.

“There are too many teams above them, too, so they should go out and enjoy the rest of the campaign.”
