Small Heath: The gift that keeps on giving
« on: July 17, 2009, 08:20:50 AM »
Quote from: The Sun
BIRMINGHAM are in talks to build an 'iconic new stadium' and the owners want it up within five years.

Blues chairman David Gold has held preliminary talks with the FA to get the stadium accepted as a possible World Cup ground in 2018.

Gold said: "We are talking to the City Council and the stadium would be a joint venture.

"We are going for a 46,000 seater ground, 6,000 above FIFA requirements. I'd love to get one over on Villa!"

How pathetic does that make him look?

Why do they make it so easy for us?

Bless 'em.  I wonder how are they going to stop 30 odd thousand seats rusting up solid from lack of use?

Envy,


 (also called invidiousness) may be defined as an emotion that "occurs when a person lacks anotherís (perceived) superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it."[1] It can also derive from a sense of low self-esteem that results from an upward social comparison threatening a person's self image: another person has something that the envier considers to be important to have. If the other person is perceived to be similar to the envier, the aroused envy will be particularly intense, because it signals to the envier that it just as well could have been he or she who had the desired object.

No class. The above just about sums the morons up.

Is this 46,000 stadium they want to be built alongside the 60,000 stadium they want?

While they're at it, why doesn't Sullivan request that the council invest £12 million in restoring the Gala bingo Hall next to the ground.  It's a top tourist attraction in Birmingham isn't it?

Get one over on Villa?

Why is he so bothered about the rivalry anyway?

He's been trying to wash his deformed, webbed hands of that pathetic club for ages, but nobody wants to know.

Let's leave Earth for a moment and go to whatever planet Small Heath inhabit. They reckon they need 46,000 seats for their 25,000 average Premier League crowds, so what do they think we need for our 40,000 average? Pro-rata, it would be about 70,000 wouldn't it?

Our capacity will be well over 46,000 by then so he can go f*** himself.  Besides, that'll look great when they're playing Stockport on a Friday night on Sky and there's only 12,000 slum dwellers in it.

Right, so he wants to 'get one over the villla' (that statement puts him in legendary status with all knuckledraggers)...

So they'll have this 46,000 seater stadium by 2018, whereas we'll have an already internationally recognised & world class 52-55,000 seater stadium within 3? years??

Thus adds to the argument that ALL Premiership clubs should own their own ground.

Well done Dave!

They're our nearest neighbours, they hate the sight of us and they do nothing but spit jealous bile at us. So why can't we give a little back occasionally?
It's perfectly natural to loath your deadliest rivals and rip the piss out of them at every given opportunity. The day the rivalry with the Sty dwellers is over will be a very sad day indeed.

This mythical stadium they want to build that keeps fading in and out (mainly out) of reality, they should call it Brigadoon.

They dont even want it for football but as a Casino or some other machination to wrest giros from the Elizabeth Duke clad hordes.

Let me get this right he wants to build a 46,000 capacity stadium, but doesnt want to pay for it.
In other words, he wants the council to help fund it, or should i say, the council tax payers in Birmingham.
If i was still living in Birmingham, i would object very strongly to my council tax money being used to help pay for their new stadium.
They want 1m people to help fund something for the benefit of 20k!!!
Coming out with comments like that, he wonders why he gets so much abuse at Villa Park. He really is something else!
