Dong was very nearly the man responsible for our downfall as League One loomed under Karanka. However, the powers that be above him took abrasive action and appointed Lee Bowyer.
A massive turnaround then took place and Blues secured Championship status with two games to spare, no thanks to Dong. Hopefully, now the club can kick on from here and a sensible appointment is made. Keep Right On!
