With no win in nine games and the worst opening games record in Birmingham City managerial history, it is hard to see how and why Gianfranco Zola still has the Birmingham City managers job. The underlying reason from the boards perspective was to get the team to play a more attractive brand of football. This is all well and good if, with the style, there comes substance in the form of wins. Although the brand of football may have changed slightly the results have dramatically declined. Under Gary Rowett the football we played would never set the world alight, but results were being ground out and wins were being amassed. The appointment of Zola has been a major oversight by the board who had otherwise been building, slowly but steadily, a club we can all be proud of. The sooner this mistake is rectified the better. It is seemingly impossible that we get Gary Rowett back as manager, which would be a dream for all fans of the club. The least we expect though is a manager who has some form of decent managerial pedigree…something that Zola does not have.
