Happy Christmas?

Whether or not you have a happy Christmas depends on what you base your happiness. If it depends on Birmingham City doing well then it may be time you changed your allegiance to a more successful team. One thing I have learned in over 70 years of supporting the Blues is how to recover from defeats and not to base my feelings on football.  Though, I must admit that recovering from the defeat by Middlesbrough took longer than usual.

If you were happily looking forward to a family reunion and your plans have been cancelled due to the change in what is allowed, then you have my sympathy.  I hope that it won’t be too long before you can spend time with family and loved ones.

As a Christian, my happiness at Christmas is based on celebrating the coming of Jesus to earth. I can celebrate Christmas regardless of any restrictions.  Whatever you believe, I hope that you can find something to be happy about now and that you still have hope for a better year in 2021.

    I will be 70 next year and also a lifelong Blues supporter. I don’t think that I could ever change alligance but there have been times when it’s tempting. I had my wonderful day at Wembley with my son in 2011 and I will always treasure that.
    Does supporting a club like Blues make you stronger, I don’t know but it won’t be nice to be able to look forward sometimes and not back.
    Happy Christmas blues fans and stai safe.

    Only ever met one supposed Blues fan who changed allegiance. Once a Blue always a Blue. It is sometimes more Sorrows than Joys but we live for the high’s, for the home grown players -the Bellingham, Redmond, Gray, Trevor Francis etc. A good cup run and the occasional promotion we don’ t ask for much, we don’t expect much. Just 100% effort an occasional flash of class another 2011 success would be wonderful.
