Garry Monk press conference
It seems like Blues have had more unveilings than wins in recent seasons but as Garry Monk addressed the media this afternoon, his positivity came to the fore.
Here is a man fully aware of the situation he inherits yet there was not even the slightest suggestion of negativity during his press conference.
Monk spoke of his desire to 'build foundations' which will be music to the ears of long suffering Blues fans.
The 38 year-old described the club as 'massive' and 'historic' and came across as genuinely proud at landing his new role.
While Monk may have skirted around a question asking if there is a break clause in his contract in the event of relegation, he gave off the aura of a man who wants to make this job his own.
Supported by Pep Clotet, James Beattie and Daryll Flahavan, Monk has 11 games to save Blues from the dreaded drop. All of the other conversations can wait until May.
