Gary Rowett, the manager of Birmingham City FC, has spoken to our reporter Steve Clamp about how he's banished the blues from the Blues.
"I'm quite a positive character, the people around me are as well. When I came in, I didn't mention the 8-0 defeat, I didn't mention anything about what I'd done before.
"I said, 'Listen, you'll get judged on what we do going forward, and if you give me everything you've got, I'll take everything else.'
"I want to encourage people to be brave."
