The Eagles took command through Glenn Murray's double but substitute Nikola Zigic and Papa Bouba Diop earned City a share of the spoils.

"So far as I am concerned it is deja vu," said former Blackpool boss Holloway. "The last time I was here we were 2-0 up and looked as if we were cruising and ended 2-2.

"It felt strangely strange. You have to give Birmingham credit but we made one or two mistakes after they sent on Zigic and we looked a little vulnerable.

"All in all I still thought it was a very good performance. I am probably disappointed with Birmingham's second goal as it was a free header from a corner.

"But the defining moment for me occurred when we had a breakaway before scoring the second goal. (Andre) Moritz hardly ever misses in situations like that but he went over.

"But give Birmingham full credit. Lee Clark's teams hardly give up. They are not having it easy and the season has not gone their way."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
