There is more interest on the Small Heath forum about us because they exist just to hate the Villa .Pity fat bastard Moss robbed us of a point ,that would have been hard for them to take

I do get the Bloose dislike towards us - local rivals and pure jealously knowing we would be a bigger club if they were champions of the world and we were non league, but Coventry.  We always gave them one of their biggest gates of the season, we are not an out and  out hooligan support, our football by and large is not negative and  never has  been.  In the 70's I understand that they quite liked  us so wonder what has changed em.

I'm guessing it was our general merriment at singing we'll meet again 20 years ago...

What did they expect after unfurling a big SOTV banner at half-time when they were 2-0 up?

Every time we visited in the 70s I certainly don’t recall any bonhomme

My dislike of Coventry is possibly greater than that of the great unwashed, and I can explain this by having two thirds of my family (who I like) being Noses, and the fact that they’re Brummies. 

Coventry, on the other hand, hate us because they can only dream of being Brummies, they’re a non descript bunch of jealous inbreds from the M69 hinterland, and should be given a free transfer to the East Midlands. The fact that they call a cob a ‘batch’ just adds fuel to the fire.

That Coventry home game the 3-2 would definitely make it into my top ten most enjoyable days out.  If you recall they kept escaping relegation year in year out with last gasp wins etc.  They go 2-0 up in the first half then the arrogance took hold.  As you say the banner unfurling which they didn’t dare to do at the start for fear of looking dicks too early.  Invading the pitch when the 2nd when in - all sorts of chicanery.

Then our 2nd half comeback and their collective distraught faces were things of beauty.  They’ll be back.  Topped off by JPA’s first goal and one of the best goals I’ve seen from Merse.

And mine.  It was the supporters player of the season awards that night and I went with my Dad and a mate.  Met Juan Pablo and Ginola as well as a few others.  Got told off by Chico Hamilton for calling him Chico.  "My name is Ian!"

My wife was heavily pregnant with my son when she accompanied me to that Coventry game. I suggested it would be great if he was born at Villa Park. She didn't agree with my sentiment.

The COVID outbreak is suspicious now because some of the players have had haircuts.

The German media are wondering how the professional players all have great haircuts. They can't believe ALL of the WAGs are hairdressers.

The railings are structurally defective and can't support the weight of banners boasting how they flogged their best ever player for £1m.
