I suppose to liken it to having a burden lifted off the shoulders of the club might be a bit far.

But to some extent, that is what it feels like. The board at Birmingham City have finally decided to remove the term ‘caretaker’ from Pep Clotet’s job title and appoint him officially as the club’s head coach. In a statement upon making the appointment, the board said that:

“We trust that our supporters will continue to get behind Pep, the coaching staff and the players, all of whom are passionate about bringing success to Birmingham City and have the Club’s interests at heart.”

However, it looks as if only half the fan base has decided to take that advice on board, because it’s fair to say that not all the Birmingham fans were entirely pleased with the decision. Whilst some believed that he deserved the role, others were less than impressed with his recent form, where the club haven’t won in the last five, and felt that as a result, the decision to give him the role now seemed a little bit strange.

Can Pep Clotet take the Blues to the Premier League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hopefully he’ll be able to change those fans minds in the coming months, and maybe even years.
