Birmingham fan I know was genuinely annoyed when Monk was sacked. 

 

I'm reasonably positive about this one, though can't feel happy it has taken so long given availability

Think he is a solid if unspectacular appointment.
Sorry to read many fans on here being lukewarm towards him putting it politely and will at least give him a chance.

That is putting it politely

Leeds

Birmingham.

2nd season. Finishes 17th with an average Birmingham side. 

 

 

 

If its him back him. 

What's he won/achieved/ honours as a manager, we want out of this league and I don't think he's the man to take us up.

Let's be honest....this is essentially us as a club just accepting mid table nothingness.

 

He's not an awful manager, sure, but he's not going to galvanize the fan base and players and give the whole club a lift.

 

It's a meh appointment.

Only positive I can think of is that he won't dare do anything dodgy as he is already under investigation for it. 

 

This has all the hallmarks of a typical SWFC situation. If we're 6th/7th in April, what's the odds that Monk get's a lifetime ban from football due to his 'dealings' in the past.

 

I hope Chansiri has some contractual conditions surrounding the agent concerned.

 

However, if/when he's announced this afternoon, let's give him a chance and get behind him

Birmingham also had 9 point deduction. 

You can't help thinking Chansiri may appoint him knowing the stadium sale is going to blow up and we may get dragged into similar situation...!

Got to agree, very underwhelming,  if he'd been anywhere near first choice he'd have been appointed weeks ago.

With Monk in charge your name now needs to be Jizowl.

If he gets us back to the promised land that could well happen.

I know what you mean by it being a meh appointment but glad its not someone who was good in Spanish 2nd division 3 years ago and never managed in the Championship before.

I'd have been pleased with Monk if we'd have appointed him the week after Bruce left. He's a decent manager at this level.

 

However, my overriding thoughts are why the fruitcake take 7 weeks to give the job to a bloke who could have started immediately!?

 

People are bound to be disappointed, because its now abundantly clear that the chairman wasn't spending that time finding just the right man for the job, he was sitting on his hands and hoping Bullen would take away the need for him to make a decision. 

 

Monk can't feel like he was first choice, Bullen probably feels put upon and our new manager is weeks behind the curve... Not sure its been healthy for anyone!

Positive spin is he does play attacking football

 

There's a reason hes had so many clubs at 40 though

Think we have been waiting and hoping to persuade Houghton to take over but get fed up waiting and had to make a decision after a couple of bad performances.

DC can’t really win here

 

He wanted Hughton who wasn’t interested, he’s tried for Pulis who would have split the fan base in two.

 

DC was never going to poach another employed manager so the talks of Cowley or early suggestions of Stendal was never going to happen

 

That leaves with the out of work managers. The two standouts on there are Rowett and Monk. Both know the division and more likely to know the players 

 

Monk took Leeds from nowhere to nearly the play offs. I agree Boro was a shocker but at Birmingham he’s done well with what was going on around him

 

As for the action against him why all of a sudden is everyone siding with that cap end Gibson?

That is a positive spin; that is accurate.  Shame the information in your OP isn’t accurate.

 

Pro tip: if you want to discuss the merits of the appointment, know your facts.

In modern football he has hardly had a shedload of clubs.

 

Most managers dont last long these days.

 

Plus he hardly started managing at 39.
