It was certainly one of the more baffling aspects of the game.

But then again, I’m getting to the stage where nothing is surprising me when it comes to this Blues side, and as we begin what is now a real fight against relegation, there might be some more surprises on the way as Pep Clotet tries out different things to stop the rot.

Blues were humbled at home last night, as they fell 3-1 to Swansea City, despite a great start to the game.

But there were a few things that left the fans feeling rather baffled by during the course of the game, and that was Clotet’s substitutions.

Will we stay up?





First, he took off forward Scott Hogan and replacing him with midfielder Jude Bellingham. Then taking off Jeremie Bela, who has been very productive this season, for academy graduate Jayden Reid.

Decisions that they were not scared to rip into the Spaniard for.

What about you? What did you make of Clotet’s attitude with the substitutions?
