One win and two no-score draws is a great improvement but not the end of Birmingham City’s problems. Those problems came from our ownership situation and that hasn’t changed. Blues fans know that but most seem to think there is nothing they can do about it. I can understand that and would agree that there is no quick fix.
I listened to a woman being interviewed on the radio yesterday, recalling the circumstances surrounding the fall of the Berlin Wall, 25 years ago and the power of the people to bring about change. “The world can change,” she said. I also found a picture of an estimated crowd of 70,000 on a protest march.
Maybe I’m clutching at straws but I found that encouraging. I’m not completely crazy; I don’t expect to get 70,000 Blues supporters on a march. But in the last couple of home games, I’ve seen how fans can improve the atmosphere by uniting to support the team. There are still fans that do care about what happens to their team: if they all work together, who knows what they can do! It has given me hope that Blues fans will join together in a crisis rather than splinter apart.
In the meantime, I’m enjoying the football more.
