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.

Fans Should Get Behind Gary Rowett

In January 2009, Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough was appointed the new manager of Derby County. In a club that had its purse strings tied and a crop of free transfer’s and loan players, Clough set about his difficult task of making Derby a competitive Championship side. Although Clough never managed to haul The Rams up to the top flight, the foundations were put in place for his successor to take them to the next level.

Tough Task for Gary Rowett

Gary Rowett must have balls the size of coconuts to take the job at Birmingham City. The difficulty of the job facing him was summed up during the 8-0 embarrassment at the hands of Bournemouth. After ninety minutes of gutless, passionless football, if we can even call it that, the size of the task facing Rowett is evident. It’s a very good appointment from Blues’ point of view, they get a young, hungry manager who is highly rated throughout the game. He must have confidence in his own ability to even consider the job.
