Birmingham City failed to build on the recent league victory over Leeds United, as the team could only manage a 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic.
Pressure mounts on manager Gary Rowett as the team has been unable to find a way to get more victories. Birmingham started the campaign with hopes of at least finishing in the play-offs even though there is not a lot of support for the manager from the board in terms of new signings. Birmingham have gone through a lot of financial difficulties in recent times, but Rowett felt confident coming into the game.
After securing a 4-0 win over Kidderminster in the final friendly game, Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett claimed that he is feeling confident ahead of the new season.
The club failed to even come close to achieving their objective of getting promoted back to the Premier League last season. This time around, the competition is expected to be more intense with clubs like Newcastle United expected to be favourites for the top prize. Aston Villa are also in the mix to get promoted back at the first instance.
With several clubs moving players to and from their ranks to others and so forth, Birmingham City is no exception.
Many Birmingham fans will be fearing at the possibility of losing David Cotterill in the summer, but manager Gary Rowett hopes that the player returns from international action after a fine Euro 2016.
Gary Rowett admitted that he is extremely disappointed with the professionalism shown by his players in the game with Preston North End.
Birmingham City is scraping into the play offs of the English League Championship which is a huge turn around for the club which was located in the bottom section of the 2nd tier English league when Gary Rowett took charge of City back in October of 2014.
Making a transition from the bottom to the higher section of the league is something which is not easy to accomplish but Gary Rowett managed to accomplish this and it’s why he has been so .
Spanish midfielder Andres Iniesta has rejected suggestions that he does not get along well with manager Luis Enrique at Barcelona.
Birmingham City will have several friendly matches lined up before the start of the season in the first week of August.
They have been quite convincing in the friendly games up until now, but manager Gary Rowetthas claimed that the players will have to start delivering over the next few games in order to claim a spot in the first team for the new season. Birmingham have undergone a number of changes in recent seasons and the latest change is in the manager.Rowett was appointed as the Birmingham City boss in October 2014 and he failed to lead the club to a play-off place.
Birmingham City have once again failed to reach the Premier League – even though the play-offs – after they could only finish in the bottom half of the table.
