Birmingham City: Fans slam Alvaro Gimenez after poor showing against Blackburn Rovers

Birmingham City: Fans slam Alvaro Gimenez after poor showing against Blackburn Rovers - Birmingham

Birmingham City might have scrapped just past Championship foes Blackburn Rovers to progress to the next round of the FA Cup, however fans were far from pleased with what they saw from Alvaro Gimenez.

Pep Clotet’s side took an early advantage when Dan Crowley opened the scoring inside the first five minutes of the game, however they were pegged back with 30 minutes to go when Adam Armstrong netted from the penalty spot.

The tie looked to be heading to a replay at Ewood Park, however Jeremie Bela made sure they would not have to play an extra fixture when he hit the ball home inside stoppage time (BBC).

Whilst fans would have been pleased with progressing in the competition and potentially lining the club’s coffers with more money, some were far from happy with what they saw from Gimenez.

The Spanish striker came in for some criticism from some sections of the club’s faithful on Twitter, with many feeling he offered the team nothing with his lack of movement.

Some were even harsher with their words, as they felt he was the worst striker that they had ever witnessed play for the St. Andrew’s outfit – with a certain Marcus Bent being drawn into one comparison (three goals in 35 appearances for the club per TransferMarkt).

Here are just some of their reactions to Gimenez’s performance…
