Some Birmingham City fans took to Twitter to sing the praises of their French playmaker Jérémie Bela, following a ‘very impressive’ run of form for the attacker.
Bela made a post to his Twitter account to celebrate Birmingham going 10 straight games unbeaten in all competitions following their 1-1 draw versus Brentford this past weekend. The Blues faithful took the opportunity to show their appreciation for the 26-year-old in response to his tweet.
One Blues supporter referred to Bela as a ‘crowd favourite’ in response to his post. Bela’s recent form shows why he has been endearing himself to the Blues faithful of late. The playmaker has been one of Birmingham City’s key creators this season. He currently has a total of five Championship assists for the 2019/20 season, which is the joint-highest number of assists that any Birmingham City player has made this season.
The 26-year-old attacker has made a total of five goal contributions in his last 10 games. His recent run of form has been impressive enough to draw the praise of some of the Blues’ supporters.

Quickly becoming a crowd favourite. We've lacked a player with such dynamism for a long, LONG time. Kudos on acclimatising to Championship rigour so quickly. You da man! ??

What do we think?
In addition to the latest messages of appreciation from the Blues’ supporters, manager Pep Clotet also gave a glowing appraisal of Bela earlier this month, stating that the Frenchman is “becoming a very important player”, at St. Andrew’s.
Considering he came to the club as a free agent as recently as November, Clotet, as well as the Birmingham faithful, are appearing to be understandably pleased with the return being made by the French attacker on the pitch. It may be fair to wonder how Birmingham managed to secure a player of such quality with no transfer costs, especially after the start of the season. Bela may prove to be the find of the season, should he continue his run of form for the Blues.
