Well, I suppose this will eliminate some people from the search, something that will bring joy to certain sections of the Birmingham fanbase.
And at the same time, it goes to show the level of ambition that the board are looking to show when it comes to the new boss. The only question now, is will they make the right decision?
After the news came out yesterday regarding Pep Clotet’s imminent departure from the club, there has been plenty of speculation as to who is going to jump in the hot seat moving forward, with the Blues fans having their say on what direction the club need to take.
Now, noted Blues journalist Brian Dick has updated fans on what the club are apparently looking for when it comes to the new man in charge, saying that it “seems like they’re focusing on someone with experience and maybe the odd promotion on their CV”.
Where should the Blues look for their next boss?
So with that caveat added, there were plenty of names being thrown around by the fans on social media.
Jokanovic or Hughton would go down nicely.

Jokanovic has to be front runner as we’ve already got his assistant in

Hughton, Jokanovic, Karanka maybe Bruce if he leaves Newcastle??

Neil Warnock all over it if that's the case.

Sounds like Steve Bruce to me 😉

Jokanovic for me , the fact we got in his old number 2 in could have been the plan all along? To get a look at all the players to hit the ground running next season

Lee Bowyer! Knows the club and if Gardner has been promised a role in the new set up he played with Lee at blues.

Neil Warnock fits the bill then
