Birmingham City: Latest News and Updates


Let’s see what has been happening at Birmingham City as far as football is concerned. Whether it is the EPL, Championship, or even the Women’s League, there is always action worth reporting week in, week out. Here is some of the news related to Birmingham City that we’ve been tracking so far.

Steven Gerrard set to sell former Birmingham City player Greg Stewart

Greg Stewart was a part of the Birmingham City team in 2016. After playing about 21 games in the Championship, he was on loan to two other clubs before signing a two-year contract with Rangers F.C.

This season; he has made just two appearances for Birmingham City. In a bid to bring the Scottish Premiership title back to Ibrox, Rangers coach Stephen Gerrard plans to sell some players to bring in new legs.

One of those players that would have to leave is Greg Stewart, as he seems not to be a part of Gerrard’s plans.

Players Birmingham City should consider signing during January transfer window

After playing 18 games this season, Birmingham City have managed just 22 points. Fortunately, they also have a decent goal-difference tally on the table. These opinions suggest that their defence is relatively stable, but they only find it difficult to score goals.

Aitor Karanka is looking forward to augmenting his team this January to push them into the table’s top half. Well, here are some players that the coach could sign:

● Matthew Sorinola from MK Doris, a 19-year-old left-back

● Troy Deeney from Watford, a 32-year-old forward

● Emile Smith-Rowe from Arsenal, a 20-year-old attacking-midfielder

● Mallik Wilks from Hull City, a 21-year-old winger

● Josh Murphy from Cardiff City, a 25-year-old winger

Preview of Cardiff City vs. Birmingham City on Wednesday

Blues’ next Championship game is a faceoff against the Bluebirds at Cardiff city stadium. Cardiff City lost their last match, a South Wales derby against Swansea City. With a man short, the Cardiff team conceded two goals from Jamal Lowe.

Birmingham City also lost to Watford in their last match as Troy Deeney could not score an almost guaranteed goal. So, it will boil down to who is prepared to win the most.

In their previous 18 meetings, Birmingham City has only won four times. The odds are mostly in favour of Cardiff City. However, Cardiff City would be missing the services of key players like Lee Tomlin, Jordi Osei-Tutu (due to injury), and Joe Ralls (due to suspension).

Placing Bets on Championship Football

Championship betting markets are very popular. Some bookmakers offer bonuses that come in the form of free bets. Free bets are usually valid for Championship games and are quite common because this league is so unpredictable and there are generally long odds. You also have the opportunity to place in-play bets.

A few sports books that cover the Championship market also have some games streamed live on their website. You can combine watching the game and placing bets as the action unfolds using the in-play betting systems.

Other betting features that are popular in Championship games include ‘cash out’ which allows betting punters to cash out if they bet on a certain scoreline and the game reaches that score before it ends – the option to cash out for a lesser payout can prevent the bet being wiped out if another team scores.

Preview of match between Everton and Birmingham City in FA WSL

The Barclays F.A. Women’s Super League would hit the screens once again in a game between Birmingham City and Everton.

Will Everton be able to break their two months winless run since October? Some bettors have connected this winless streak to the absence of top strikers like Valérie Gauvin and Simone Magill.

On the other hand, will Birmingham City’s female team be able to capitalize on Kirk’s determination to win this match? In their last encounter in the F.A. Cup semi finals, the Toffees defeated Birmingham City by 3-0.

The Birmingham side has many great players, but they have been struggling with the top teams this season. With 5 points behind Everton on the table, Birmingham City W.F.C. will be looking forward to changing their usual case of losing to top teams.

Fans rant over undeserving penalty awarded against Birmingham City

Birmingham City was on a fine run until last weekend when they lost their match against Watford. The referee awarded a penalty for a tackle by Kristian Pedersen, which many fans and pundits felt was inaccurate. This has also brought back the debate of having Video Assistant Referees in the Championship.
