It might sound cliché, but I think now more than ever, we’re going to need actions to speak louder than words at St Andrew’s.

Especially when you consider our history when it comes to the turnover in the dugout.

Speaking following the recent appointment of Aitor Karanka as Blues boss, club CEO Dong Ren spoke about the future of the club, and the kind of role that the Spaniard will take on going forward:

“Aitor will have the time and authority to build and lead this football club going forward. I’m very excited and I can’t wait to get started, he will have our backing for sure.”

Did Blues get the appointment right?





Now call me sceptical if you will, but given the way we have gone through managers and head coaches in the past, I wouldn’t be getting ready to start calling this ‘The Aitor Karanka era’ in B9 just yet.

But it seems as if I wasn’t the only one that wanted to see some proof before they truly got on board with the CEO’s comments, as many fans responded on social media.

What about you? Do you believe Ren and the board will stick by their words?
