Whilst there's been a lot of fallout from giant killings in the FA Cup third round this weekend, the post below offers an interesting insight into the (lack of) "Magic" of the FA cup amongst middle tier clubs. By that I mean fixtures like these - two Championship sides. Neither are minnows looking for an upset or big pay day. Their main prize is their league position, and the FA cup can feel like an unnecessary distraction, as manifested by the team changes and the low turnout. For the record, only 7000 fans turned up to watch Birmingham City beat Burton Albion 1-0. A home time vs Arsenal in the next round would have filled the stadium, but thanks to Arsenal's unexpected defeat, a Birmingham vs Nottingham Forest fixture is likely to result in the same low attendance in the 4th round. Perhaps for these clubs the aim is to get through with minimal effort until a more attractive (profitable?) tie pops out of the hat.

Is this attacking midfielder the answer to Birmingham City's goalscoring​ problems?

Birmingham City have struggled this season on the pitch as they find themselves in 23rd in the league table, but back to back victories against Leeds United and Reading, have helped turn their fortunes around and both manager Steve Cotterill and the clubs supporters will be hoping this is the start of good spell. 214 more words
