  1. Gary Rowett, an established and available Championship manager at the time, made it clear he wanted the job prior to the start of the season.
  2. If true, that's absolutely staggering. Has DC not learned that sometimes you just have to cut your losses and make the best of a bad situation? What good is it doing anyone having Rhodes sat here twiddling his thumbs on unsustainable wages? And before anyone suggests Rhodes is probably happy enough with the situation, I'm sure he'd rather be out playing/scoring. Scottish football is Rhodes' level these days. He could've even earned a call-up to the Scotland squad had he started bagging up in Glasgow.
  3. FF should be one of the first players out of the door in the summer. His overall contribution for the last three years has been sub-par. Club should have cashed the chips after the Norwich debacle in 2016, not give him a lucrative new contract.
  4. I’ve just posted this in another thread.. Our central midfield is a huge concern. It need major surgery in the summer transfer window. Pelupessy just isn’t good enough. Needs replacing when released this summer. Bannan is our best midfielder but he’s wasted in a midfield two. Luongo has played a disappointingly low amount of games. At 27 years old I was expecting better. Lee is a decent option but he’s in the final years of his career. Needs replacing if released this summer. The Hutchinson situation has been done to death. Needs replacing when released this summer. A total lack of forethought by the club has created this mess. Baffling that more wasn’t done to strengthen this area in the summer and January transfer windows. Why have we left ourselves in such a ridiculous position?

  6. He’s out of contract in the summer. Would be a shame if we lost him for nothing. Hopefully a contract extension is being discussed.
  7. It would be a harder sell than normal - many established names may give it the “I’ll wait until the summer” line. We do have a decent set of players, a chairman willing to spend money and a dedicated fanbase. Under normal circumstances, that would be enough to entice managers to put their selves forward for the role.
  8. Very worrying. This is just one of many reasons why we need to be looking for an appropriate replacement for Monk now IMO. Once that points deduction hits, we will be staring relegation in the face with captain personality in charge. However if Monk is replaced in the next few days/weeks, the effects of a ‘new manager bounce’ might just do the job in getting us over the line to keep us up.
  9. So we could do without dropping points to an average Birmingham team then? I’d regard a draw to be a good result if we’re playing a team that had established themselves in the top 6. Birmingham aren’t one of those sides.
  10. Considering Birmingham City have been in the bottom half of the league table since 9th November? A draw does nothing for us. We need to be going for a win today.
  11. So Birmingham have improved recently - good luck to them (apart from tomorrow obviously). I disagreed with the prediction that Brum “will be in the mix for 6th”. And I’m not going to change that opinion. The fact is that they’ve been in the bottom half of the league table for 3 and a half months. I’m very confident that Birmingham City won’t put up a serious playoff challenge this season.
  12. The last time Birmingham City were in the top half of the Championship was 2nd November. They’re an average side. And I doubt they will finish near the playoffs.
  13. It would absolutely not be a relief if we get relegated. It would be a nightmare for us. In the summer, we will have the simple task of recruiting around 8-15 Championship (assuming we stay up) players, possibly with a transfer embargo imposed on us. That’s a very tough ask.
  14. Good statement. Some of the ITK bullsh*t accusations against KW have been unfounded. There’s a few posters on this forum that owe Westwood an apology IMO.
  15. The City game will require all hands on deck just to keep the score respectable. Rhodes should be nowhere near the team for that fixture. Might as well play with 10 men.
