The Gary Rowett Revolution

The Gary Rowett revolution is slowly but surely undertaking it’s summer overhaul. The Blues boss has gone on record to say that the budget ‘will not be lower than last season’ and that he feels he has adequate resource in which to continue the club’s upward spiral.

Exactly one year on, the contrast was evident as Blues bowed out with a 1-0 win on the same pitch, their third in four outings. I’m not sure what pleases me more – the fact Blues conceded only one solitary goal in their final four games, the fact that we won three of the last four (without conceding) or the tenth place finish. The latter was a miracle and capped off an excellent turn around by Gary Rowett and his troops.
