Zola hired as Birmingham boss

Zola hired as Birmingham boss

A insane day at the Blues on Wednesday saw popular manager Gary Rowett sacked and replaced with the Italian in the space of less than six hours in the afternoon.

He was dismissed by West Ham in 2010 after an underwhelming spell in his first job as a manager. Trust me, Birmingham is not the only club who asked me my interest.

Seven hours after Rowett's departure, his successor, Gianfranco Zola was appointed, along with his backroom staff, on two-and-a-half-year contracts.

Amongst those surprised to see Rowett relieved from his duties in the Midlands was Leeds United boss Garry Monk, who stated he felt his promotion rival did not deserve to lose his job.

"I have been asked to improve the team, where it is possible to improve, from the good job that has been done so far".

Company: Equipment didn't detect North Dakota oil leak
The company has hired Alberta-based SWAT Consulting Inc . that specializes in cold-weather oil spill cleanups, Suess said. It's unknown how long the pipeline, which was built in the 1980s, had been leaking before the landowner discovered it.

Despite Birmingham City now occupying a respectable 7 place in the Championship table, the Blues inexplicably went on to dispense with the services of popular manager Gary Rowett recently.

"I will try to speak with Gary, this is not between me and him. I will give him a call and extend my sympathies in the situation". Part of the job that we do is going through this.

Cooper said: "I have got to be careful with what I say, with obviously Charlie being there, but you have to say it's a odd decision".

"I have done some good things in my previous jobs but some things have not been so good".

Zola, who introduced himself to a few senior players on Thursday, will take his first training session on Friday morning, with little more than 24 hours to prepare for the televised game against Brighton, the first of three matches in which he will assess his squad before the opening of the transfer window next month. "It's an opportunity for me to prove myself", he said. It looks to me like they have an ambitious plan for this club.
