The gamble that didn’t pay off
It has been a year since Birmingham City announced that Gary Rowett had parted company with the club.
Blues Trust members, like the rest of the football community, were stunned by the decision. It was a decision of such magnitude that the reverberation can still be felt now, as succinctly summarised this week by Brian Dick in the Evening Mail. At the time we said that it felt like a risky gamble, and one which threw the future of the club in doubt.
Twelve months on the future of the club is no clearer, with uncertainty and discontent on and off the pitch. The turn of the year is always a time for looking forward, and Blues Trust would like us all to use this opportunity to start thinking about what sort of Club we want Birmingham City to be.
