Gary Rowett keeps positive momentum with latest Birmingham City win

Published Add your comment

Gary Rowett has been in charge of Birmingham City for just four games now and has already managed to flip the morale, and subsequent performances of the club almost overnight.

Blues on the up

Before Rowett was appointed, the Blues were on a run of torrid form, and had recently been thumped 8-0 at home to Bournemouth. However, since his arrival things have started to change. Even though he only has four games under his belt he has maintained a 100% unbeaten record and a 50% win rate.

Rowett has turned the poor run of form on its head and now has the team beginning to show the home fans what the side is capable of when the cogs are turning in a cohesive manner.

Players brought in

Rowett made some big calls in bringing players in, and so far they seem to have worked:

Guy Moussi: A defensive midfield player who has spent most of his time in the French leagues. Hopefully set to be a strong anchor in the heart of midfield.

Michael Morrison: A reliable centre half on a short term deal from Charlton Athletic, currently keeping USA international David Edgar out of the team with his consistent form for the Blues.

Rowett's good impression

Rowett has seemingly made a good account of himself amongst the fans and the performances have most certainly backed him up. Following Birmingham's most recent 1-0 victory over Rotherham United on Saturday, the Blues have leapfrogged teams in the table and now sit 19th. It’s still not great, but it’s a start.

Hopefully, if the Blues can keep a good consistency and Rowett can continue to provide a positive vibe around the club there is no reason he can’t keep this good run of form going and steer clear of the drop zone.
