Birmingham City have made a decent start to the season under caretaker head coach Pep Clotet, although they are now without a win in their last five league matches.
The Blues’ 1-1 draw against Millwall at the weekend has left them 15th in the Championship table, six points outside the play-offs.
Clotet has been in caretaker charge of Birmingham since the club parted company with Garry Monk in the summer. The Spaniard has made a decent start to life in charge of the Blues, although his side have suffered a bit of a dip in form over recent weeks.
It is unclear whether there is any truth to the reports that Birmingham are set to axe Clotet, but speculation surrounding the Spaniard’s future at St Andrew’s has got plenty of Blues fans talking on social media.
A Brimingham fan posted on Facebook: “Do you think Pep will be manager at the start of next season? This should be interesting!!”

Plenty of Birmingham supporters were quick to respond to the question on Facebook and discuss Clotet’s future at the club. Here is a look at some of the best comments from Blues fans…
