The Manager

Clark – the first 10 games

With ten league matches now gone in the Championship season I thought it was worth a look at what Lee Clark has achieved; where he’s got it right and I guess more importantly where he’s got it wrong.

500,000 reasons

In all the discussions about who Blues should take on as manager – both on here and elsewhere I sense that there is this undercurrent as to why anyone would take on the Blues job. I mean, there is an embargo against new registrations in force, we appear to be as skint as the Greek national economy and things don’t look like improving massively at any rate. Is it really that bad?

The shortlist…

Lee Clark, Roy Keane, Alan Curbishley and Phil Brown. Yesterday afternoon this emerged as the rumoured shortlist for the role of 32nd permanent Birmingham City manager. As shortlists go, it could be better – I’d like to have seen us looking at Holloway for instance, but on the other hand it doesn’t have Gary Megson on it. Or Paul Ince for that matter.

Who Will It Be?

It’s been four days now since Chris Hughton left Blues for Carrow Road, and the rumour mill is truly and well under way for the his replacement. I thought I’d have a scan through the rumours out there and see who is and who isn’t interested in the job.

One of the first people to throw their hat into the ring for the Blues job is former Birmingham City winger Jose Dominguez. The diminuitive wide man played for Blues for a year in the mid nineties and as I remember was a bit of a cult hero. Could he do the job?

The Search Begins

Well, it’s now confirmed, we’re managerless. I will admit to being in denial right up until the time that Blues confirmed a compensation package had been agreed, hoping that maybe Hughton would have a change of heart. Alas, it was not to be, and now we must move on.

Hughton and Norwich

This time ten years ago Blues were looking forwards to their debut season in the Premier League having beaten Norwich City on penalties in the playoff final. Fast forward to now and it’s Norwich City in the Premier League – and it looks like they’re taking our manager from us.
