Support For Lee Clark.

Support For Lee Clark.

Birmingham boss Lee Clark may be coming in for some stick at the moment, but one person who is openly behind him is Steven Caldwell.

The Blues captain believes that Clark is the right man for the job and with support, can turn City's fortunes around and have them challenging for promotion.

Since Clark took over the manager's seat, Blues have played 12 games and managed to lose six, such form has put them fourth bottom of the Championship.

And the defender days that all the players are behind Clark and what he is trying to achieve at the club.

Caldwell told the Birmingham Mail: 'He's an honest guy and that's what you hope for in your manager. You want someone to tell you how it is and explain his reasons for making decisions.

'He's a very passionate man and I've got a lot of time and respect for him as a person and as a manager.

'He's looking at himself, thinking about what he could have done better. But the good thing is he's got a group of players that are thinking the exact same thing.'

Quote: "he's got a group of players that are thinking the exact same thing." I wonder if this is the problem. Perhaps if at least ONE person had a different perspective on things, then between the lot of them they may be able to start some sort of discussion that may lead to the root of the problems. At the moment the players look as though they haven't got a clue when they are on the pitch so, if SC is suggesting that the team are the same as the manager (ie clueless) then it doesn't bode very well for the season, does it?

Spot on. It's just something that the club want you to believe so that things can be papered over. But the problems are not just going to go away, you only have to see how empty the ground is on match days to see that people are not happy with what they are seeing. I dont believe the team is clueless, but I firmly believe that the manager is.

seems too early to start moaning about a manager, but this tool has started a lot of bad feeling being pent up against him. New owners are a must, its the only way out of this ***** now. The parachute payments have been spunked away on half decent players who will not play for Bonehead Clark.
