Post Clark Blues

Blues begin life after Lee Clark with a trip to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers tonight, under the leadership of caretaker managers Richard Beale and Malcolm Crosby. It’ll be interesting to see which team the duo pick and whether they get a reaction out of the players, most of whom are Clark’s signings. Whether Beale and Crosby are interested in the job permanently remains to be seen, but a good result can only do their chances the world of good. The club are understood to be in dialogue with a number of candidates and hope to make an announcement sooner rather than  later. The important thing is not to rush the decision.

Lee Clark Sacked

So the majority of Blues fans have got their wish, Lee Clark has been sacked. The news was relatively surprising in the sense that many people believed Clark’s job to be safe due to the dire financial state of the club. I do feel for the Geordie somewhat. He is an honest, passionate, hardworking man who has been working under difficult circumstances. I have defended him for as long as I can remember. But seeing a solitary home win from 24 games at St. Andrew’s, and with the way we are heading, something had to change.

Thoughts on Brentford

Yes, Blues should have won the game at Brentford. And yes it was two points lost. But no matter how you dress it up, a draw on the road anywhere is decent and who wouldn’t have taken five points from four league games? I honestly believe Lee Clark is starting to get things right. Admittedly his substitutions were naïve, but the improvement in performances should see us all with cause for optimism.

Thoughts on David Davis & the Weekend

Tom Adeyemi, David Davis. What’s the difference? Both enjoy a robust energetic style of play, both are central midfielders, both decent are Championship players. The difference? £900,000. That’s right. Lee Clark loses a player for the best part of £1m, replaces him with a like-for-like for a tenth of the cost.

Brighton Thoughts…

At last, a league win at St. Andrew’s. It has been a long wait since that 4-0 drubbing of Millwall on October 1st, but finally, the monkey is off Blues’ back. A single Wes Thomas goal saw off a lacklustre Brighton.
