Birmingham City: Head to Head

Peter Waring

Birmingham City: Head to Head reveals for the first time how the Blues have fared against every club they’ve ever played, in any competition, since the club entered the Football League. From Altrincham to York City, Birmingham’s complete record of matches against each club is looked at in detail and illustrated with pictures. Also included is a table of players who’ve played for both clubs and a ‘fact file’ highlighting the most surprising nuggets to be gleaned from this fresh way of interpreting the club’s statistics.

Did you know that Birmingham have not met local rivals Aston Villa in the FA Cup for more than 100 years? That Kenny Burns’s four-goal haul against Derby in 1976 was the last time a Birmingham player scored four in a league match. Or that Birmingham were responsible for Liverpool’s heaviest-ever defeat, a 9-1 drubbing, in December 1954. All these facts and figures, along with countless others, are easily accessible in Birmingham City: Head to Head, which will be an invaluable addition to any fan’s bookshelf.
