Birmingham Sting Hornets

Am I exaggerating by saying the performance against Watford, last night, was the best on home turf for two and a half years? Forgive me if I am wrong, or getting carried away. Someone please correct me if I am! But I don’t recall a performance as complete, as satisfying and as competent as that for a long long time, especially at St. Andrew’s. What we witnessed on Tuesday night was a manager who had a game plan, players who bought into, and understood, that game plan, and players having confidence to express themselves and play without fear. Stans was rocking at the sight on Stephen Gleeson bossing the midfield and Clayton Donaldson being, at times, unplayable.

Defence the Key at Molineux

I struggle to recall a time that I have been so happy with a goalless draw. The point at the Molineux was a massive one for Blues and their new manager Gary Rowett, but the clean sheet was arguably as important. Rowett has done in four days what Lee Clark failed to do in two years, it was a refreshing change to see a Blues side defend so well and look so organised.

New Blues Dawn in Wolverhampton

The Friday manager’s press conference at Blues is always something I, and many other fans, dread. The drone of a manager talking about who’s fit and who’s not whilst staring at the table in front of him. So you can imagine how refreshing it is to see an open, expansive manager who’s words fill you with confidence. Gary Rowett had his doubters, but he is winning them over without the team kicking a ball under stewardship.

Work Cut Out for Lee Clark

Whilst I wish Lee Clark the best of luck in his new role as Blackpool manager, I can’t help feeling it is a case of ‘out of the fire into the frying pan’. If Clark thinks the job at Bloomfield Road will be easier than it was at St. Andrew’s, he is horrible mistaken, it seems to me like a car crash waiting to happen.
