Birmingham City are in optimistic mood as they look forward to their game at Charlton on Saturday. The club has recorded back to back wins for the first time this season, the squad at the cash strapped club survived the transfer window intact, and in the last few minutes news has come in of a new and credible bid for the Blues: Blues get over the Blues
We thought that our away draw at St.Andrews at the beginning of the season was an encouraging sign, even though it was disappointing to sacrifice our lead in the closing minutes. However, the travails of majority shareholder Carson Yeung, who faces money laundering charges in Hong Kong, have cast something of a shadow on the club's season.
The club are not pretending that it will be three easy points on Saturday and acknowledge that they face a tough game on the heavy Valley pitch. But they hope that Charlton's poor home form will work to their advantage.
