Will Cotts Be Brum,Brumming His Way to Brum?

Will Cotts Be Brum,Brumming His Way to Brum?

Sky Sports are claiming that they understand Birmingham are seeking talks with current Pompey manager and ex-Clarets gaffer, Steve Cotterill.

The job became vacant at St Andrews following the resignation of Alex McLeish over the weekend. McLeish could have one eye on the job down the road at Aston Villa and things seem to be getting somewhat acrimonius between the two clubs with Birmingham understood to be threatening legal action should McLeish become a Villan.

But what of Cotterill? Well he has certainly impressed at Portsmouth despite the club's recent precarious financial situation. After all their problems, they finished in a respectable 16th spot, ten points behind 8th placed Burnley. They even struggled to name a full bench on several occasions following administration and relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2009-10 season.

They now though have new owners, flush with money it would seem so would Cotts want to move on at a time when increased budgets could enhance his chances of getting Portsmouth promoted back to the Premier League? On the other hand, he may think newly relegated Birmingham may have a better chance of making an immediate return to the top flight.

Watch this space I guess!

Cotts certainly seems to have got the attention of bigger clubs these days despite being in the doldrums for ages after he left Burnley. Always thought he was a good manager and deserved better from Clarets fans towards the end

Good luck to Steve. But, here's a thought... maybe Coyle will go to Birmigham now Villa reckon he's not good enough for the high-flying part of the city? BUrnley, BOlton, BIrmingham, BEggarsbeliefwhathe'dgetupto, BAcup.

Cotterill has proved himself to be a Manager who can survive on a shoestring budget but is an unknown quantity at a higher level, bar the Sunderland debacle. He ran out of steam at Turf Moor and will be very interesting to see how he gets on at St Andrews if they come in for him.

Incredible couple of days. Not surprised to see Davies get the chop at Forest - he has been on a permanent collision course with the directors there. Was a little shocked at Big Eck's departure from Blues though. Wonder whether they will appoint a new supremo before their great rivals down the road ? When is David Moyes back from holiday again ? How far is it from Langho to Everton ?

Good luck to Cotts if he wants Brum. Then that nonentity from Bolton to Pompey, always been a hero there.

Good luck Cotts. He has somthing about him that makes him special. As for Susan - the question on his mind would have to be "is the tallent draining in or out at notlob?".
