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?

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