It looks like we’re starting to get to that kind of spirit once again.

Having gone through a similar stage of ‘pining’ over a former manager when Garry Monk was appointed boss at Sheffield Wednesday, it looks as if Blues fans are starting to feel the same way about another former boss. This time it’s Millwall manager Gary Rowett.

@BluesCallum posted a message on Twitter last night during the Lions’ game with Leeds United as they were 2-0 up, and he pointed out that sacking him was ‘the biggest mistake’ that Birmingham City made in the past ten years, and it was a comment that certainly got a lot of fans talking.

And even though he hasn’t exactly gone on to achieve much since he left St Andrew’s, there were lots of fans who agreed with the comment, with a couple of them using it as a way of comparing the state of the club now to where they could possibly have been under his stewardship if he’d have stayed on.

Who was the better manager for the Blues?

Gary Rowett

Gary Rowett

Garry Monk

Garry Monk

I wonder how Pep Clotet must feel about all this sort of talk, with fans pining for the old regimes back.

  • Rowett was looking for a way out of Blues anyway, I can’t believe after all this time people still don’t know the truth about this guy, the biggest mistake wasn’t sacking him, it was his replacement and to say that he had a good rapport with the fans I think some people are getting their Gary’s mixed up!!!.

  • Agree, then the Zola era came upon us and we are repeating it all over again with Clotet after Monk, you could not script it could you

  • Gary Rowett didn’t produce a team that played attractive football and he was looking to move on, in his defence he did not have big money to spend on players, as for Gary Monk he was trying to procure under the counter deals for his own personal gain (alleged) . So in both cases they were not employable by the club and we certainly do not want them back that would never work.
    The trouble with the Blues board is they thought bringing in big time Charlies like Harry Redknapp and Gianfranco Zola they could transform the club when all they did was waste a lot of money. We need to take a chance on an up and coming ambitious and hard working manager with an older experienced head to help him perhaps it would help Pep Clotet to stop him changing the team after every match and talk to referees and the opposition bench like that lot at Boro. I would also urge the board to give some aid to the Birmingham Ladies team because their results can reflect upon the general feeling about the club and it looks like our neighbors will be in the top division next season lets try and get a better feeling about the Blues club and less doom and gloom keep r on
