Well that certainly didn’t go to plan did it?
Having done so well in midweek against Barnsley, City came crashing back down to earth with an almighty crash away to Swansea City, as the visitors capitulated in the second half allowing the Swans to run out 3-0 winners.
Speaking to BCFC.com after the Blue’s rather dreadful performance boss Pep Clotet stressed that he has faith in his side, despite yesterday’s performance.
The team did very well when we came to half-time very solid at the back despite playing against tough opposition. Our ability to link the defence and attack was much better against Barnsley.”
Perhaps he thinks it was just a bad day at the office, a blip as it were.
However, it looks as if those words fell on deaf ears for a number of Birmingham City fans. Their patience is ever so slowly running out it would appear.
Right behind you because there’s nothing right in front of you. What’s your next formation 5-5-0

He speaks and we don’t listen. There’s enough hot air in these temperatures than to listen to this

Pep hasn’t the defenders to play possession football. It takes an age for them to “see the pass” and they end up getting caught in possession, running into trouble or hoofing the ball. Get back to the basics, 4 4 2 & crosses from wide areas until you have the tools to do the job.

We’ve played four away games this season. We won one of them with our only shot at all, on or off target. We’ve lost the other three all 3-0.
Clueless. Thanks for trying @pepclotet but t’ra you aren’t good enough

"Little setbacks" 3 consecutive 3-0 away defeats with hardly a shot on target in reply, whatever he's trying to do isn't working – urgent rethink required

Although, in fairness there were still a couple of fans who still think that Clotet has the ability to turn this thing around, but for how much longer?
Work in progress people! Let's not forget! KRO!!!
