Birmingham City fans react on Twitter to Sheffield Wednesday defeat

Birmingham City fans directed their frustration at manager Lee Clark following Tuesday night's 2-0 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Birmingham City dominated the first-half of Tuesday night’s Championship class against Sheffield Wednesday, but a poor second 45-minute spell saw the Blues succumb to their first home league defeat of the season.

Goals through striker Stevie May in the 67th-minute and Frenchman Jeremy Helan one minute before the end leave Steve Clark’s side in 20th-place in the table on six points from their seven matches, and the manager was at a loss to explain the erratic performance.

‘Real Jekyll and Hyde,’ he told the Birmingham Mail. ‘First-half we should have gone in at least 1-0 up, second-half we stopped doing all the good things we did in the first-half.

‘Yes, we understand that Sheffield Wednesday were going to come more into the game, but they more or less dominated the half.

‘With the exception of the sidefoot volley the number nine has put just past the post for them, we were in control of the first-half, but you can’t be doing that first-half and be so different second-half.

‘We stopped doing everything that we had been doing well.’

Fans were none too pleased at their team’s collapse either, with few standout performers in the lineup, and the reaction shows that must believe the former Huddersfield Town boss's time should be up.
