Blues Trust continues to provoke different reactions from Birmingham City fans; some join and others jeer. I am one of those who joined so I’m not writing from a neutral standpoint. My name is Margaret Decker; I was involved in helping to set the group up and was interim secretary for a while. I had to stand down from that position when my life got too busy with other things but I still support what they are trying to do. I know more about the history of the group than most members do but don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes now. I’m writing as an individual member expressing my own opinion and not as a representative of the trust.
Blues fans seem to be united in wanting new owners to buy the club as soon as possible. There doesn’t seem to be any other way out of the financial mire the club is in. When a club’s owners can’t find the money to keep the club afloat then new owners have to be found or the club goes into administration.
I can understand why Birmingham City fans want to know what’s happening in Hong Kong. The decisions made by Birmingham International Holdings will determine the future of our club so it’s natural to be interested. I’m as curious as the next person and regularly check the web to see if any more snippets of information have come to light.
I’ve never been very keen on American football; it always seems to take more time for the players to talk about what they’re going to do next than it takes for them to actually do it. However I did watch quite a few games on TV when I lived in the USA and learned a few things about the Green Bay Packers. I knew that they are one of the most successful football teams in America, they play in green and gold, their fans are called cheeseheads and all their games are sell outs. I now know that they’ve sold out all their season tickets since 1960 and have over 100,000 on the waiting list to buy any season tickets that become available.
