Time to just wash our hands of the situation.
We managed to stay up, now let’s just put the whole thing being behind us and look ahead to next season when hopefully we won’t be in as much chaos as we have been.
We fell 3-1 at home to Derby County on the final day, but results elsewhere meant we stayed in the division by just a single point even though our results and performances in since the restart, and beyond didn’t really merit it.
Speaking to the club website after the game, caretaker boss Steve Spooner spoke about the form that Blues were in during the past few months, and how he believed that the results didn’t necessarily match the performances that the team put in:
“It’s not a nice stat. We knew the situation when we came in but all members of staff here, we love this football club and we were only too pleased to help when we were called upon and we’ve tried to put some sort of stamp on it. You’ve seen that in the performances, and I think they’ve improved game by game, but we didn’t have enough games to get that win. To go that long without a victory is very concerning for sure.”
Do you have faith in the board to back the new manager with sufficient money?
Hopefully, this message gets through to those in charge, because I don’t want this to be a case of papering over the cracks, we stayed in the division so everything is OK.
It should act as a catalyst for serious change at the club and we can start to look forward rather than just looking to stay where we are. That’s why I think the appointment of the next head coach is going to be crucial, and hopefully it’s going to be someone with a mid for a long stint at the club, as opposed to the merry-go-round that we’ve become accustomed to.
What about you? What do you make of Spooner’s comments?
