It’s an update that doesn’t fill me totally with confidence.
But at the same time, I suppose we’re going to have to do whatever it takes to get out of it.
We Are Birmingham are claiming that the club are looking for a temporary head coach from outside the club, rather than looking for someone within the current setup to come and take up the responsibility.
And it’s the use of the word ‘temporary’ that sums things up.
This means that on top of the search for our next permanent head coach, we could be going through two coaches in as many months if this one is only going to be until the end of the season, which just goes to show how disorganised things are in the boardroom at the moment.
Were the club correct to get rid of Clotet at this point?
Hopefully they get the appointment right straight away and the ‘permanent’ head coach comes in first rather than having to go through a caretaker first, just to make the person keeping track of our history’s job a little bit easier.
And it was news that left Blues fans with a multitude of reactions.
Good. We need a short term fixer a la Redknapp. I’d pay Big Sam what’s he wants to keep us up. Similar arrangement to redknapp. Galling I know but I think it has to be done.

Good, but depressing, spot.

Probably initially but we will win a game and people will call for whoever to get the job. Based on no long term strategy and we will be in the same position in 8 months. It’s the circle of strife

The fact this has worded as head coach and not manager means we are gonna get someone who is clueless and be a yes man again.

Haven't we been here before? Are Redknapp and Cotterill available? 🤬
