It’s that time of the year Bluenoses.
A manager has been sacked and yet again, Gary Rowett is amongst the favourites for the position.
This time its Derby County, after they sacked Paul Clement this afternoon. He was relieved of his duties with immediate effect and the search for a new manager in the Ipro hotseat has instantly begun.
Derby currently sit fifth in the Championship, only four points ahead of Blues and they still remain one of as one of the favourites for automatic promotion, despite a recent dip in form.
Rowett spent three seasons as a player at the Ipro, and he sits at 4/1 with Paddy Power.
Also in the running are David Moyes, Gary Monk, Nigel Pearson, Dennis Bergkamp and Tim Sherwood.
Like we said, this won’t come as a surprise to Blues fans who had to endure the never-ending circulation linking Rowett with the vacancies at Fulham and QPR only earlier this year.
