I ended my previous post by saying that I’d like to give the players a good send off. Well, we certainly did. A crowd of over 20,000 watched Birmingham City lose at home once again, our 13th home loss this season. I was proud to be part of that crowd that sang, shouted and applauded the team before, during and after the game.
For me, win or lose, it’s better to be at a game than following from a distance. When you are there, a win is more exhilarating; a loss is more bearable when surrounded by others who share the pain. I was glad I was there last night. And, whatever the result, I’ll be glad to be at Bolton to see our last game of the season.
If any of the club’s potential buyers was at the game, he will have seen what the support can be like. There are so many reasons why any sensible person should hesitate to buy a basket case like Birmingham City; the crowd last night showed why it could be a good buy.
