Greatest fans in the world - yeah right
I've grown to quite like Birmingham City and their honest bloke manager Steve Bruce. I hope they come back up, not least as I enjoyed last season's pre-match light ales in the St Andrews Tavern with the old school Blues fans. The team that won 5-1 at Newcastle tonight, report here, had three ex-Rovers in it. One of them wasn't even David Dunn, who is coming home to Ewood. But where were the legions of football mad Geordies who supposedly stand by their team through thin and thin? By full time there were only a few hundred left in the ground booing their hapless team. Clearly as fickle as the rest of us, deluded into thinking that they're a big club and that the FA Cup doesn't matter. Fools.
