I’ve got to hand it to them, it’s probably the question of the week.
As soon as I saw the question my mind flashed to Seymour Skinner in The Simpsons, “This is going to get some disapproving clucks.”
So in another round of questions for the fans during the international break, because let’s face it, there’s not a lot else to talk about right now, Birmingham Live went and asked the ultimate question.
“How would you rate the job Pep Clotet has done so far this season?”
Now, it’s fair to say that Clotet has divided opinion so far during his brief spell in charge, so whenever you bring up his name in any sort of debate, it’s very likely that you’ll get some fiery responses from supporters.
So what sort of score did the Blues fans give the Spaniard? Well, let’s just say they were more positive than I had initially anticipated, particularly given some of the vitriol that tends to come his way.
I’d have ripped your hand off for 10 points at this stage honestly. We’ve played better and got less points in previous seasons. It’s a results game though so pleasantly surprised at the start.

He's done well considering what happened in the summer and all the uncertainty, however performances could be better and think failure to add at least 1 more striker could haunt us later on, I would take 10 points at this stage as a solid start #KRO

Well he’s Dong’s puppet so anything he does is always going to be hard. 6.5/10 so far.

Got points on the board, work in progress

Although there were a couple of fans who were a little less lenient on him.
In a nutshell not very good he won’t be there next Transfer window ????????

Sporadic & very lucky. No clear identity & not continuous plan of approach to matched. A very worrying tread. 4/10

Not very good. Don’t rate him as a coach. He has failed everywhere he has been. But in saying all that the circumstances in which he is having to work are horrendous. No manager worth his salt would work with this board #Bcfc

Poor but results have created a smokescreen around our inability to start games well or implement the style of football they’ve been trying to play

If you could give Pep a score out of ten so far this season, what would you give him?
