Well done Bow
I don’t have a lot of like for Birmingham City. I’ve been to St. Andrews numerous times and most of them have been rather unpleasant, off the field anyway. Yet I have been keeping an eye on their progress under Lee Bowyer, and today a win at ‘Wayne Rooney’s Derby’ secured their Championship safety which looked very dubious upon his arrival in mid-March.
Favorites for the drop when Bowyer joined The Blues have lost just one game in eight, that to Watford, under Bowyer. When he joined they were 4th from bottom, had played more games than anyone around them and had four teams in the top six as Bowyer’s first four fixtures.
Bowyer is very goal orientated, and the siege mentality he can create and togetheness should not be forgotten. I won’t because it is infectious.
He is rough around the edges in more ways than one, but he is young and can learn how to manage players, personalities and game situations, but being a competitor and a winner is something that that you either have or you haven’t. Lee does.
Well done Bow.
