He just had to do it last night didn’t he?
Minutes after I’d gone to bed, the announcement came through. Although perhaps some of the blame lies with me for not reading the signs when he didn’t turn up to his post-match press conference. No smoke without fire as they say.
Well the Pep Clotet era is finally at an end now, as the club announced that the Spaniard will no longer be running the team. This should hardly come as a surprise given the bad form that the club was in since the restart, now Blues will be hoping for that ‘new manager bounce’ effect to kick in to try and keep the club from sliding further and further towards the relegation zone.
Were the club correct to get rid of Clotet at this point?
So when the news came through, there were two main emotions running around. Joy that a change had finally been made, and anger that this seemed like a bit of a pointless gesture without substantial change at boardroom level.
Sad things ended the way they did, like Pep as a person and feel most managers are gonna struggle until we have a change of ownership, best of luck for the future @pepclotet

9 permanent managers in 13 years. The only two good managers we’ve had were sacked after mid-table finishes. Board needs ousting, they’re ruining this club.
