Hi Andy,


Welcome to the forum, it's changed a little around that area over the last few years hasn't it?

Ah Spud  :) I'm told I was on my Dad's shoulders to see the '56 team come home, though I don't remember it.


I'd ask my Dad in later years 'Coming down the Blues Dad?' He'd reply 'They never came to see me when I was bad.'

Just cannot see the likes of Liverpool and Everton merging. Liverpool have only recently extended their ground and Everton have a new ground on the cards.
Just wonder where the money will come from to build these new grounds. There was of course a plan to Rehouse Blues to the NEC when Sullivan and Co were in charge but it fell though if I remember correctly it was a joint venture with a Casino. I haven't been to St Andrews for years my Dad and I went together for getting on for 50 years. I was Blues Mad they called Beau Brummie at work,I remember crying when they lost at Wembley in 1956. Dad watched them for sixty years or more every Saturday we would come from the match and he would say the same thing 'Never going again' The next week he would be pacing out side his house from 1:30 waiting for me to pick him up and we had Season Tickets !!!

Hello-it's good to join you. I was born in Ireland in 1953, raised in Small Heath, Perry Barr and Erdington. I now live in the Black Country and am a very regular visitor to Birmingham.
Happy to be part of the community!

David, Birmingham CC could free up St Andrew's (for example) by facilitating the club's move out to the NEC where a new, modern stadium could be built, much as I and many others would miss the lovely, smelly, traditional old place. It won't be done via mergers.

It seems that the Sports minister has had talks with the Treasury and the Housing minister regarding utilising the vacated grounds for social housing which is much needed in the inner cities such as Liverpool, Newcastle and Sheffield. The West Midlands may be a pilot. :-[
