End of the road?

Blues’ 1-0 defeat at Millwall leaves Andy Munro worried.

This was yet another depressing defeat in the absence of Tony Mow⁞bray. Yes, Blues had marginally more possession and shots but in the latter case it was sixteen shots but only a pathetic one on target.

Our failure to sign another forward has come back to haunt us and even Mowbray must share some of the blame on that.This has left Jay Stansfield a lonely figure up front ploughing a lone furrow.

In terms of criticising the management I would also draw out their lack of trust in youth and certainly, given our paucity of goals, I would have had at least a young forward such as the prolific Junior Dixon on the bench. My other observation would be that apart from maybe the oft-benched Jordan James, it is rare to see anybody other than Stansfield busting a gut to get into the box, which means the opposition defence can safely be in pipe and slippers mode.

Do I think Blues will survive? Inless Mowbray makes a miracle return, at best it seems 50:50. The only mitigating factor is some terrible refereeing, with Hull scoring thanks to a handball and Stansfield being denied a stonewall penalty against the Lions. Having new owners with ambitions yet with an underperforming team could only happen at the Blues!
