Seb Larsson

Blues have moved up to 13th in the Prem - lucky for them - but although Oliver Kapo scored the winner against Bolton, it's Seb Larson who's been catching Callum O' Connell's eye.

So the Blues get their second win of the season - against a team that last season was challenging for Europe. I don't think it's so much Blues' rise as its Bolton's fall from grace, but a win is a win none the less.

Oliver Kapo still has a lot of proving to do and his goal will go along way to justifying why Bruce brought him in.

Kapo though is not the main talking point of this game, Sebastian Larsson the player who cost an initial 500,000 from Arsenal and then another 500,000 on top is proving just why Bruce brought him - for 1 million you can't really go wrong and Larsson with his vision and passing ability will prove to be a great asset for Blues this season.

Who knows - maybe in the transfer window he could be reunited at St Andrews with his old Gunners (and Blues) team-mate Nicholas Bendtner.

It was reported this that Nicolas Bendtner was wanting showdown talks with Arsene Wenger, after being left out of the Arsenal squad to play Portsmouth - maybe a rift is on the cards? Steve Bruce take note.
