Steven Caldwell: Understands fans' frustrations

Birmingham lifted the Carling Cup at Wembley two years ago before suffering relegation from the Barclays Premier League in the same season, with last term a campaign of hope buoyed by a memorable Europa League run before bowing out in the play-off semi-finals to Blackpool.

This season, however, has been a very different story as Blues struggle at the wrong end of the npower Championship table - with just one win in their last 10 games - while talk continues to be dominated by a worrying financial decline.

But Caldwell insists the players are working hard to try and turn results around on the pitch.

He told City's official website: "I hope the fans realise the commitment we're trying to show and the effort we're giving. The levels of performance haven't been where they were last season. I know it's been frustrating for them to watch, it has been frustrating for us playing in the games too.

"Sometimes when they give us that bit of extra help, it does push us on. So I hope they appreciate how important they are to us, they stick with us and we can give something back."

The defender added: "We have got some great players at this football club and for some reason it's not quite happening. It's up to us to work hard and get that win. I do feel we do have a good run in us. Again, we need to stop talking about and instead get on and do it.

"We're desperately trying to do well for Birmingham City Football Club. It's as simple as that."

Meanwhile, promising Birmingham midfielder Callum Reilly has received his first call-up to the Republic of Ireland's Under-21 squad for their clash against Holland in Dublin next month.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
