There’s two ways you can look at an option like this.
Either the board are being incredibly pragmatic by taking their time and allowing things to develop, or they’re simply messing around and not putting things into action as soon as they possibly can.
With the news last week of Pep Clotet announcing he is set to depart the club at the end of the season, there have been plenty of names that are being linked with the job, although according to noted Blues journalist Brian Dick, that doesn’t mean that the club are any closer to finding their man.
Taking to Twitter yesterday, he said that there appears to be more names being linked than anything concrete actually coming out of the club, going on to say that this is something that could go on for ‘weeks rather than days’, meaning that we likely aren’t going to get anything significant until nearer the end of the restarted season.
Would you be OK with the Blues appointing Neil Warnock?
An update that garnered a mixed response from the supporters on social media.
Delicate one this as the appointment displays their intent and ultimately drives revenue – get this one wrong too and I can see mid table obscurity and mid teen crowds, something we all want to avoid inc them I think 🤔

There will be a lot of manager's moving around post season, i think we might be better off seeing what becomes available then, rather than rushing into whoever's available right now.just my opinion #bcfc

I just hope the board have a 3 year business plan in place Brian that’s all.. In line with sound investment in the management and playing personnel.. I would be happy if we can challenge properly in 2 seasons time.. no fancy dan needed now.

Surely they’ll be more options available when the season ends! Left field but what about a big name ex pro like Rooney. Lampard / Gerrard have done well and it would attract players who wouldn’t otherwise be interested…just a thought!
