I am pretty easy going and I am also prepared to give people a chance, and I have been quiet on the subject up to now in the hope that things would turn around. I write this in a calm reflective manner, and not an emotional one despite us losing at home to one of the relegation favourites. The purpose of this blog is to say, we need to make a change.
While it is true that we were unfortunate against Leeds and we dug in well at Wolves, (although they just happened to be worse than us that night), the truth is – for whatever reason – Zola’s appointment simply is not working. People are saying we are playing better football – that is true (some of the time), however we aren’t scoring goals and we are conceding goals that makes us a worse team not a better one.
We are probably safe already this season even if we carry this form through to May, however next season we will be favourites for the drop. I say this because I just can’t see how Zola can change things. We just CANNOT allow us being relegation fodder to happen.
The board made a very brave decision sacking Rowett and it would have looked genius if Zola had turned us into promotion candidates – but that hasn’t happened. We have ended plummeting down the league with an appalling record. We have never been a sacking club, managers have always been given a chance but this time the board need to make a 2nd brave decision and sack Zola. A new manager will have the comfort that we are safe, but will be able to get us ready for next season.
Be brave BCFC, look for a new manager now.
