As just over 4,000 fans hurled abuse of Birmingham City manager Steve Cotterill on Saturday afternoon as he walked from the dugouts to the changing rooms, it got me thinking, is there a reason behind him bowing his head and not clapping us?

If the result had gone the other way would he have done the same? Probably not!

After the game, he was caught on camera openly admitting that he will ‘always f****** acknowledge’ the fans support but why didn’t he do it on Saturday?

Okay he might have been a little embarrassed that his side missed a second half penalty that meant they hadn’t scored a second half goal in any of the 10 games that he has been in charge but that doesn’t excuse his behaviour.

It’s fair to say that his rash comments after the game haven’t gone unnoticed and it is quite clear to see that the current state of affairs at the club are hurting him as much as they are hurting the fans.

According to Vital Birmingham sources, a defeat at the weekend against Queens Park Rangers could prove to be the last nail in the coffin for the former Bristol City manager.

However, the Mirror Online revealed on Monday afternoon that their sources believe the owners of Blues, Trillion Trophy Asia, are ready to give Cotterill more time in charge at St.Andrew’s meaning that he has lost the support of the fans but not the support of the owners.

If he can pick a win up on Saturday afternoon then it may well be a turning point for him but how he goes about it is yet to be seen.

I try to stay optimistic when it comes to Blues but at the moment I am finding it hard to stay positive. I will always try my best to stay upbeat but sometimes you have to know when you are defeat.

Personally, I feel this chapter in Blues’ history is coming to an end, I just hope the owners realise it before it is too late.
