Birmingham City fans react on Twitter to Lee Clark's sacking

Birmingham City supporters seem to be pleased that the club have parted company with Lee Clark.

Birmingham City supporters are relieved that the club have sacked Lee Clark, after being less than impressed over the past couple of seasons.

Clark had a difficult job of taking the Blues to new heights with a lot of off-the-field distractions and a lack of funds, but he has failed to progress the club.

The Blues' poor home form has been a source of particular frustration, and a defeat to Bolton Wanderers at the weekend appears to have been the last straw.

A club statement made today read: "The search for a successor has already begun and the Board will look to make an appointment in the very near future In the meantime, first-team coach Richard Beale and chief scout Malcolm Crosby have been placed in caretaker charge.

"The club wishes to place on record its sincere thanks to Lee Clark and Steve Watson [Clark's assistant, who was also sacked] for their combined efforts over a period stretching back to June 2012."

Gary Rowett has been made the initial favourite to takeover from Clark, but it seems that Birmingham fans will not have to wait too long until a new face in place in-charge.

The club's first game without Clark will come tomorrow night, when they face Blackburn Rovers. It is a move which has gone down well with many of the club's supporters, with most looking forward to a new era.

Here are the best reactions on social media site Twitter.
