I wonder how long it’s going to be until he manages to win over the whole fan base.
With the news that Pep Clotet had been appointed as head coach yesterday, taking away the title of ‘caretaker’ that had followed him since he the departure of Garry Monk in the summer, there’s has been plenty of debate about whether or not he is indeed the right man to take the Blues forward.
Well that debate got ramped up once again yesterday as the man himself gave his views on the situation, claiming that “I thought straight away that there was something special in this Club”. But it looks as if that message of hope and positivity hasn’t managed to make its way through to the whole of the Birmingham City fanbase, as his message wasn’t met with 100% positivity.
Indeed there were a couple who called for him to be removed from his post almost before he’s had the chance to have his first game with his new job title.
Anyone tell me the quickest managerial sacking in Blues history ? As it might be coming 😂

Brutal. More boring football, slow, bad passing, no attacking. Horrible to watch. @pepclotet is the worst thing to happen since Zola.

Can Pep Clotet take the Blues to the Premier League?
As an admirer of Clotet myself, I just hope those fans realise the error of their ways eventually.
