The fans think we should be in or around the top 6, despite not competing financially with half the division.
Evans thinks this level of investment is enough to compete in this league.
Mick is stuck in the middle, and clear cracks are starting to show in relationships. Mick has protected Evans from criticism of lack of investment - but as the intensity increases on him why should he continue to do so?
...a bit pointless because he is so young - but all my family are aware so missus is in SBR Suite with me so easier to bring him along than arrange childcare - as he can sit inside if struggling with it.
Hopefully it will be as good a game and win as my first game - also against Blackburn - just over 25 years ago - maybe he'll see (or sleep through...) another Dozzell winner?!

THis is an interesting video about problem with youngsters today. Everything is about instant gratification, and instant success that for things that end up really mattering like job satisfaction and relationship building they/we find it so much harder because it is so alien to them.
Makes some interesting points about using phones less and interracting with people more. Over the last few weeks I've tried to do this - realise I end up having pointless arguments on here, Twitter or Whatsapp when i should be doing things with my wife and little boy so need to try and cut down - because I am addicted to it in reality.
Interesting comments about how it isn't their/our fault, it's just the society we've been brought up in now - but it is leading to more depressions in younger people and just unhappiness as they are constantly trying to measure up to their peers.

1 point in 4 games since they sacked Rowett, dropped from being outside the play offs on GD to 13th and 7 points away from them.
This is what I fear would happen if Mick went - we have a squad in his mould and I just don't see someone coming in and hitting the ground running and pushing us up the table playing sexy football.
Birmingham look to be wasting a season where they had a good shot of the play offs, will they come back stronger next year? Who knows - but I can see why Evans sticks with stability rather than taking a risk.
