Even though Birmingham have enjoyed a strong start to the season under Pep Clotet, some fans will be concerned that they don’t have the squad depth to keep this form up.
They look particularly weak up top, with new signing Alvaro Gimenez the only senior alternative to Lukas Jutkiewicz and there is a general feeling that they are one player short in that department.
Therefore, the decision to let Isaac Vassell complete a deadline day switch to Cardiff was not that popular among the support, even though the 25-year-old had struggled at St. Andrew’s.
An injury hit two years saw Vassell score just one league goal in 23 games, however he took just a matter of minutes to equal that total with the Welsh side, grabbing a 96th minute equaliser against former club Luton after coming on as a sub in injury time on Saturday.
As you would expect, that prompted a reaction from Blues fans on social media. Here we look at some of the responses…
And a typical Blues moment happened today with Vassell scoring the winner for Cardiff of course that was always going to happen. #bcfc

3rd choice striker Vassell loaned out and scores within minutes of coming on as a sub = Typical Blues
$10 million rated Puscas who didn't score at all on his debut = Nobody bats an eyelid#BCFC
