Wow: Birmingham now offered chance to bring in 4-2-3-1 manager with four promotions

Birmingham City have been offered the opportunity to hire a 4-2-3-1 manager in lieu of Toby Mowbray this summer, which may be a significant step.

A season to forget for Birmingham

It has been a sad season at St Andrews, with the Blues relegated from the Championship to League One after 13 years in the English second division.

Things appeared to be going well with John Eustace in charge early in the season, but he was unexpectedly fired as manager in October, despite Birmingham lying sixth in the table and in playoff contention at the time.

Wayne Rooney took over as his replacement, but the England legend struggled, losing nine of his 15 games in charge. Former Blues manager Steve Bruce expressed his support for him at the time, saying: He had what, 3 months in charge? For me, I think it’s a little bit harsh on him, I think he needs a little bit more time than that.”

Mowbray took over as Rooney’s successor, but health concerns cut short his season, and Gary Rowett was unable to maintain Birmingham in the Championship, with their fate cemented earlier this month.

It is unclear whether Mowbray will be able to return, but if he is unable to do so, a surprise appointment may take his place.

Birmingham could make stunning manager appointment

According to a fresh claim from Football Insider, Bruce may return to Birmingham as manager for the second time, with the Englishman “keen” on a “stunning” return to St Andrews.

According to the article, the 63-year-old is “not yet ready to finish his managerial career and still has ambitions of guiding a new team, with the possible vacancy at his old club putting him on alert”. They “could turn to the experienced boss to bring them back up” .

This would be a momentous appointment if it occurred this summer, but it would undoubtedly divide supporters’ thoughts. During his first term at St Andrews, the former Manchester United and Blues defender had some remarkable success, including a playoff triumph over Norwich to end a 16-year exile from the top division.

Throughout his managerial career, he has overseen four promotions, therefore he has actual pedigree in the scenario the team is currently in.

Bruce, a manager who prefers to use a 4-2-3-1 formation, isn’t the modern-thinking young coach that some fans would like to see come in, but he knows the club extremely well, and his aforementioned promotion record makes him a strong candidate to lead the Blues back into the Championship on the first try.
