Gary Rowett’s sacking from Birmingham City remains a sore point with the majority of Blues fans. The controversial decision to replace him with Gianfranco Zola has led to a decline of ten league positions and rather than looking up at the play-off places, Blues are now in a relegation battle.

Rowett was confirmed as the new manager of Derby County last night as he presses on with his promising management career.

Derby owner Mel Morris sacked former England Head Coach Steve McClaren earlier this week for the second time. He’s made some dud appointment to the Pride Park dugout but this time round he’s bang on the money.

Rowett will need time – a commodity not often afforded to Derby managers – to mould the squad to his liking. Yet it will be interesting to see if the ethos he embedded into his Blues team, with an far inferior squad to the one he now inherits, matches the hand he’ll play in the East Midlands.

Rowett has unfinished business in B9. It would have been interesting to see how he operated with a bigger budget. We will now get to see that in motion. Unfortunately it’ll be at Derby not Blues.

Good luck Gary.
