Reaction to Birmingham City`s latest defeat was met with trepidation. Since Gianfranco Zola took over, the downward spiral has been rapid as Blues plunge towards relegation danger. Still, I hear claims that ‘no one else would want the job`. That is categorically untrue.

A few years ago, many claimed that Lee Clark should stay as Blues wouldn`t attract anyone better. Gary Rowett walked in and ripped that theory up into shreds. Back then, Blues had no financial pot to p*ss in, the owner was in prison and the club were unhealthily accepting their fate on the pitch. Blues attracted a decent manager.

Circumstances off the pitch have drastically improved after the TTA takeover – managers will want the job in the St. Andrews dugout. Perhaps not the unrealistic ‘big names` that have been bandied around on social media – Alan Pardew, Roy Hodgson (who would want them anyway??) but certainly good Championship managers would see Blues as an attractive proposition – a half decent squad and a bit of money to play with in the summer transfer window.

Blues are in real danger and something has to change now.
