Birmingham City Karanka, ‘I’m lost’ – Birmingham City fans respond to Karanka interview in wake of Norwich loss

‘I’m lost’ – Birmingham City fans respond to Karanka interview in wake of Norwich loss

During the late-80s, the satirical puppet show Spitting Image parodied politician John Major by having him turn greyer and more non-descript every time he appeared on the screen.

That’s what is happening to Aitor Karanka and his reign at Birmingham City. However, it is the colour draining from Blues fans that is more the concern.

Loss after loss and bad performance after bad performance has been enough for many fans of the club to turn on Karanka. After all, it is with the manager where the buck usually stops.

Birmingham City went behind to a Teemu Pukki goal (28′) and also saw the Finn miss a penalty (35′). Ivan Sanchez (39′ ) levelled things for the home side giving the game a 1-1 half-time scoreline.

The battle of the opening 45 went to the Blues but it was a Norwich City second half thanks to a second from Pukki (76′) and a late goal for Olver Skipp (90+4′) which gave the scoreline a flattering look for the Canaries.

In all, it was Karanka’s 17th loss whilst in charge at St Andrew’s – a span of just 33 games. In those 33 games, the Spaniard has won just SIX games in total.
