Let’s just hope that the man in question is listening.
And that he might be persuaded to come and join us after all.
Former Birmingham City forward Clinton Morrison has given his views on the current search for a new head coach at St Andrew’s, and he thinks that a reunification should be the way to go.
Speaking on TalkSPORT, Morrison said he hoped that whilst he would like to see former Blue midfielder Lee Bowyer get the role, he much favoured the club making the move to reappoint Chris Hughton, describing him as the perfect candidate based on his track record:
🔵 “I’d love to see someone like Lee Bowyer to go to Birmingham.”
🙏 “But I would like to see Chris Hughton get the job.”
👏 “He gets teams promoted & keeps them in the Premier League.”

It has been reported that Hughton is interested in taking the role with Blues, but that he is waiting to see what happens elsewhere in the Championship before he makes his mind up on which approach he wants to take, which as I said at the time might make it look as if we are his third choice when it comes to his potential suitors.
Do you want Chris Hughton back in the dugout?
But given what he achieved when at Birmingham City, and elsewhere in his career, are we willing to let those feelings get in the way when it comes to appointing the next boss?
What about you? What do you make of Morrison’s comments?
