On a thread over there they're planning a banner against us saying "Welcome to Birmingham". It will really get under our skin and piss us all off apparently. I know it will make me cry.

I now have an image in my head of people in a bar in the Far East watching the match, seeing the banner and all saying to themselves, "Well, look at that, 'Welcome to Birmingham', that's a lovely gesture isn't it".

Everton fans did exactly this with a banner saying “Welcome to Liverpool” when they played each other once. I remember Tom Ross tweeting about how nice it was and that you’d never get such civilised behaviour at a Blues Villa Derby. Someone had to explain to Tom that it was a piss take.

I wish I could find the map WM Travel did of season ticket holder concentrations, which showed us coming from just about everywhere in the city and their piddly little light blue in South Brum and then only concentrated in the A45 corridor and Solihull. The irony of garbage like this never fails to make me laugh.

And I really hope they do that 'Welcome to Birmingham' banner as it would show just how small time and insecure they really are.

Did our old mate Carson Yeung ever succeed in making Small Heath East Asia's favourite British football club as he promised? Has anyone visited any of the string of BCFC theme bars/restaurants he was opening?

They could use it to hide all them f#cking empty seats , and make the ground look full. Full of working class Brummies who all live a stone's throw away from the sty of course.

Less than 700 tickets sold for Norwich tomorrow night, I guess they won't be selling too many 'Invasion of Norfolk' commemorative keyrings on this occasion.
