In what has become a bit of a trend among Birmingham City fans, they’ve had their chance to talk about one of their former managers.

This time it’s the turn of Lee Clark to come under the spotlight of the fans. Clark was in charge of the Blues for the best part of two-and-a-half-years, and saw them through a bit of a tumultuous time.

Speaking to Birmingham Live, Clark spoke about his experiences at St Andrew’s, everything from the financial troubles that the club found themselves in, with the additional chaos that went on above him regarding the owner, as well as that now famous day against Bolton Wanderers back in 2014.

So when the article came out, fans seemed to be more or less incredibly supportive of the 47-year-old, understanding that whilst his heart might have been in the right place, he just wasn’t cut out to take the reins at that time in their history.

Was Lee Clark a good manager for Birmingham City?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given everything that went on around him, I think it’s fair to say his hands were tied for most of the time he was in the St Andrew’s dugout, so he does deserve a bit of credit for stopping them going into ‘armageddon’ as he called it.

One Reply to ““Part of our history”: These Blues fans full of praise for “likeable nutter” former boss”

  • Lee Clark in my opinion is a true football man who swam through treacle at Blues. He battled against ridiculous odds and brought in players who fought like him. Whether he is a good manager is another question. We as fans recognise the real from the fakes-and Lee passed every test that showed how much he cared. During his spell as our manager I remember hearing how his health was suffering due to the horrendous happenings behind the scenes. He carried on and was successful in not taking us down into oblivion. Many,many Bluenoses I know would run up to him and shake his hand should they meet in the street. That says it all.
