It is going to be a nervy stressful 25 games between now and the end of the season for Blues fans as they head into the Christmas period in the bottom three in the championship table and looking likely candidates, according to the bookies, to drop through the trapdoor.
I am guessing that the job Steve Cotterill has on his hands at Blues is a far more difficult one than he ever imagined when he signed his contract despite having worked at the club for a short spell under Harry Redknapp. I don’t know if Steve Cotterill will be a successful Blues manager or not. However what I do know for absolute certain is that it matters to him. After the defeat to Wolves I saw a passionate angry side of him that convinced me that he is desperate to be successful at the club.
What really gets to me in this crazy and often bizarre money mad world of football is when some players and managers dismiss the views of fans as worthless because they haven’t played the game at the level they have. Of course they never come out and say “your view is worthless” but they dismissively say things like “you have never played the game”. By the way we are talking about football the simplest game on the planet. Put the ball in one goal and keep it out of the other. That is the game!
Baggies didn't win but there was more attacking intent than virtually any other time this season-second half was much better with Chris Brunt and Gareth Barry excellent IMO- Albion should have had a penalty and Rashford was like a spoilt child at times with his complaining #WBAFC

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
