Birmingham City fans have spoken out regarding manager Steve Cotterill in the wake of their humiliating 5-0 defeat against Brentford last night.

The Blues’ hangover from their derby defeat against Aston Villa continues to plague the latter stages of their season, with this loss coming just a few days after they were beaten by Millwall at St Andrew’s.

Birmingham goalkeeper David Stockdale was one of the many who spoke out on Twitter, as he apologised to supporters for what many deemed to be an incredibly poor performance. Most of the criticisms, however, were aimed towards Steve Cotterill as his failure to recover from the Villa Park loss has frustrated loyal Blues supporters.

The loss last night means that Birmingham are now just a single point above the bottom three, with Burton Albion showing signs of life in a rare victory against Barnsley.

Blues supporters have been in this position before, but this time around they really do have their backs against the wall, with Cotterill having seemingly gone from hero to zero in the space of just a few short weeks.

His overall mentality towards the job is something that has been pinpointed as a key problem, while his team selection against Brentford was also something that rubbed the St Andrew’s faithful up the wrong way.
