Of course it's the boards fault,terrible decisions with illusion's of grandeur.
Rowett I think has the makings of a very good manager, wouldn't mind him at WBA in a few years time.
I'll give arry his due at least he's got the cahonas to give it a go.
But I don't think even he will save them.
Every season there is one club who seemed destined to drop and this season it's blues.
From 6/7 in the league to div 3.
I think they will stay there for a while.

I don't have any real antipathy towards Blues or their long suffering followers but if ever there was a relegation that was entirely self inflicted this is it. For me the appointment of Harry Redknapp is the cherry on top I cannot abide the man and while he won't be blamed for the relegation he for sure will take maximum credit for survival and if that prolongs the charlatan's career it is an entirely a bad thing.

I really can see them dropping as they don't seem to have it in them to pull out of out - only Blackburn's ineptitude will keep them up.

So pleased for Burton though - Clough has done a brilliant job there.

Absolutely agree considering the resources that other clubs have in the Championship Burton's survival is one of the success stories of the season.

You have to feel for them. Very pleased for Blues though.

Would have preferred Forest to have gone, if only Ipswich had turned up.
 Was listening to the match up the allotment and Forest were awful for the first 40 mins but Ipswich were just making up the numbers, they hit the post and the Forest keeper made a decent save but that was it.

I think he will do ok because even though I think he's too dated to manage in the Premier League, I still think he's a good enough manager in the Championship. I imagine most Blues fans would be comfortable with mid-table next season considering their crazy campaign this time around and I think he can achieve it.
With the new owners I also think they are willing to spend more money than previously, saying they'd spend 10 mill in the coming season which is a decent amount in that league which will also satisfy Arry.

Think 2 or 3 million was mentioned for Gardner.

How long will 'arry hang onto his job? Very poor start to the season. He helped Portsmouth to go down and Tottenham only survived because they had money.

What a surprise. Not at a club where he can throw sackfuls of money about and he can't hack it.
