Villa vs Birmingham Football Rivalries Show on Sky Sports
« on: October 19, 2017, 05:00:54 AM »
A history of the fixture is on Sky Sports next Tuesday I believe. Whether it covers the entire history or simply the Premier League years (because lets face it that was when football was invented in 1992) I don't know. If it is only the Prem I think we'll have to skip the first ten minutes or so! There was an Ipswich-Norwich one on last night.

Be good if it featured older matches but, as you say, it'll most likely just be since football was invented in 1992 (or 2002 for Small Heath fans). I'll record it and fast-forward through any unpleasant bits.

Watched the Forest v Derby one last week and it showed quite a lot of old footage.

That sounds promising, then. More interesting than just rehashing the last decade and a half.

So that's the 5-1, Cahill and Gabby to look forward to then.

Derby v Notts Forest

Looks like it goes to pre-historic football.

True.

I'm a child again whenever I hear his commentary.

Good times.

On next Tuesday Sky Football Channel 403 Virgin 503 HD or 513 at 7 pm for 1/2 hour. Would have thought, allowing for the 'pain in the neck adverts', you would need a minimum 1 hour to do it justice, still looking forward to it and thanks Deano for letting us know about it.

Any mention of Hugh Johns sends me into Ron Manager mode. Big Larry Lloyd, Wee Archie Gemmill, Sid Cowans, Pop Robson. He was also the forgotten 1966 commentator for ITV with Kenneth Wolstenholme on the BBC stealing all the glory.

As for derby games my favourites were the 6-0 in the Simod cup on my eighteenth birthday and the Gary Cahill game as it was a relegation six pointer.

I'm away next Tuesday and have no Sky. Is there any way of getting a link or something after it's been shown?

Someone from this  Parish posted the Paul McGrath programme (youtube link) that was shown on BT Sports the day before.I am hoping the poster and youtube come up trumps again.

Villa V Scum Heathh has no football traditions , its just about the rivialy and hate between the fans
Whats unique about this rivalry is the bitterness and low levels blues fans sink. They have tried to create racial division in the 80s and 90s between our clubs. Villa's black and Asian fans have suffered the most at blues fans with taunts "you support a racots club" Ive heard it myself.
