Reaction: Cotterill appointed Blues manager
Steve Cotterill - new Blues manager. Although this may seem to some a solid appointment, I'm underwhelmed.
He helped us survive at the end of last season and we thank him for that, but moving forward is he really the man to push us to the top?
I'm just not convinced, but I'll get right behind him of course.
I just feel that the club have gone round in circles over the past year and we've ended up with someone that I wouldn't have put in the same bracket as someone like Gary Rowett when he was at the club - it all points back to that crucial moment in my opinion, sacking Rowett.
What I will say though, is that this appointment will hopefully stabilise us a bit with the help of Lee Carsley at Cotterill's side.
The talk of promotion this season has clearly slowed down so the owners have opted for someone that could possibly get us prepared for it.
The only other thing is - who else would have came in once Aitor Karanka rejected the role?
Perhaps Blues felt that there was no other choice and Cotterill is a man that they can trust to a certain extent.
Let's see how it goes, I certainly hope I'm proved wrong.
