I think it’s great to hear him have such nice things to say about the club, despite the fact that the whole thing ended in rather sad circumstances.
In their latest edition of their ‘Catching Up With’, the Birmingham City social media team spoke with former Blues boss Lee Clark about his time at the club.
Clark was in charge of the club for over two years, and although he lost more games than he won, he is most remembered for being in charge of the club when we had our dramatic escape on the final day of the 2013/14 season when we salvaged that late draw at Bolton.
Was Lee Clark a good manager for Birmingham City?
Despite the way his tenure ended at the club, it seems as though he doesn’t hold any bad feelings towards us, as he spoke about his time in B9 with great fondness calling it ‘fantastic’. And it looks as if the feeling amongst the fans was mutual as they were full of praise for the former boss, even if there were some doubts regarding his managerial abilities.

His heart was really in the job, but unfortunately he just didn't have the support off the pitch or the tactical brain needed for the job… Loved his passion, but don't miss Lee Clark bingo or that year without a home win 😂
