Thank you

I’d like to thank Pep Clotet for what he has done for Birmingham City FC and wish him all the best for the future.  The headline for an article about media comments on him leaving included the words ‘Not been an easy club’ and I think that sums it up nicely. The impression was that he was given a difficult mandate. In an article on why he is leaving, Brian Dick commented:

“He was charged with implementing a change in playing style, based around young home-grown players while mounting a tilt for the play-offs. He’s made some progress towards the first two but perhaps the final demand was always going to be too high an expectation.”

I have absolutely no inside information on why he is leaving. But my impression is that it was a difficult job and he did his best. I hope his next job will be easier.

Thank you, Pep.

    I think it’s sad he’s going, having had to stick around during the pandemic. His commitment is to be commended. I only hope we can give him and us fans something to cheer about in the last few games.

    Job was always to big for him as his track record or lack of it will tell…. He was a cheap option from Dong and co. But I wish him well …. Now let’s go get a proper manager that knows how to show a bit of passion and can shake those that need it up a bit….
