Talk about letting a game slip away from you.
Despite losing a gut-wrencher to Wigan Athletic, Pep Clotet was in a rather diplomatic and positive mood. Speaking after the game, Clotet was trying to convince the fans that the game was going well up until the Lee Camp error:
“I am obviously not happy because I think we were heading to a 0-0 game, unfortunately, the incident for their goal makes us lose that point we worked so hard to have… in the end I thought the game was a clear 0-0. Obviously that wasn’t the result, we only think about the ability to bounce back now.”
However, there was a large section of the Birmingham City fan base who were not happy with the performance, and more importantly, were not happy with what Clotet had to say on the matter.
Have we fell that far as a goalless draw at Wigan is a good result

Just about sums up the level we are at. We expect to draw with Wigan.

That’s the issue right there why accept going for 0-0…we want to win games

Why not try for 3 points, just a thought?

There are two easy ways to get more people on your side, first off you can start winning some game. Second of all, saying the right things after a defeat can soothe people over, so maybe he just needs to work on some of that and relations with the fans will start picking up.
