To be fair to them they've been far, far better the last two games. Unlucky to lose this evening.

They should get shot of Zola and put this bloke in charge to see what he can do.

Lost to Burton and Zola has resigned. Looking terribly vulnerable and playing the Seals next week.

2 wins in 24 games. Pretty awful

Has to go down as one of the very worst board decisions of modern times (Alan Irvine doesn't come close, before someone chips in with that)

Irvine does come a bit close to be honest, but Zola certainly takes the biscuit as a wrong appointment.

Club director Panos Pavlakis explained their decision to dispense with Rowett, now in charge at Derby County, by saying that Zola's "pedigree" matched their ambition to "move in a new direction".
Ermm...Did he mean downwards?

Just listened to an interview after his resignation: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39624187

Firstly fair play to him for actually resigning instead of just hanging around for as long as possible and lining his pockets. This obviously has to go down as one of the worst appointments in my memory, especially due to the fact that they dispensed with a well performing manager to do so. Absolutely ridiculous. He did not appoint himself though, and has had the humility to give it up after realizing that he couldn't achieve what he hoped he could. A sorry episode that Blues fans will all hope to forget as soon as possible.

Worst decision ever getting rid of Rowett then singing Zola he's done nothing in management . 2 wins in 23 games shocking and villa next Sunday could help send them down .That will be a war zone

The dangers of getting in a foreign owner without the faintest clue of how English football works. Probably even more crucial down the divisions. Hope Blues stay up.

If they need a new accountant, Harry could bring his dog along.

Redknapp is obviously not a long term signing but what Blues need now is someone to lift the place and get those few pts they need, Harry could do that and i hope he starts at Vile Park with a victory.
