Apparently itís the state of their pitch now thatís causing them a disadvantage.  Theyíre trying to get it down and play slick attractive football whilst other teams play percentages.  Is there a fan base that talks more horse shit to disguise their own shortcomings?

Normally i'd say no but both Wolves and Leeds this season have given them a run for their money.

Aren't they just admitting that as well as shit players they've got shit ground staff too?

I'm sure if the players were that good they'd be able to adapt to the ploughed field they call home.

Blues are now in a serious relegation scrap and the danger is that as a club they're not realising it and doing nothing about it.
I may be wrong but in previous seasons when they've gone close to going down they've had only a handful of games left to get out of trouble and have managed to survive.

The difference is this time they're in a mess with half a season  left and with the club arrogance and mentality wrong it could be the year they finally fall.

They'll be fine. If they are close to relegation  the league will just deduct points from another of their rivals again.

The league always ensure that points deductions matter unless it's Birmingham City in which case they'll wait until they know it will make no difference.

You can see Forest and Derby picking up more points then Blues.  Wycombe and probably Rotherham would go down so that leaves Sheffield Wednesday who are as much of a basket case club as blues.

They are more worried about us, their Villa thread has more ongoing remarks than any about  their loss to Preston or relegation battle. One Nose saying he would be delighted for Villa to break the cartel of top clubs because its good for Birmingham, as you can imagine he's being treated like hes criminally insane.

He does look on the wind up though.  Imagine someone on here saying they want Blues doing well for the happiness of the region?

We never get Noses on here like that, they are never subtle. Its always "You lot live in Lichfield, you never drink in town and we carry the name of the city."

The fact this has nothing to do with us is so pleasing.

And calling everyone "kid".

I thought this was just my brother in-law....he's a nose obviously.  "oright are kid" is his greeting.  I've always thought it odd for many years but now coming from the mouth of a 50+ year old it is very strange even if it is meant to be a term of endearment. And now that I see it's a thing .....a noseism, it makes more sense.

Itís not a nose thing, my dad used to use it all the time, and he introduced me to the claret and blue
Definitely not a nose thing....a lot of my family use it....all of them Villa and all from Aston, Hockley, Newtown, Lozells.

Let me clarify: the use of the word "kid" in itself is, of course, very common Brummie parlance however the context of being called "kid" by a 'nose is totally different from that used as a jocular term to friends and family.

It's used in a sneering, condescending way, generally to perfect strangers as they justify their frankly delusional sense of superiority over Aston Villa. It is undercut with the vague threat that this exchange could turn rather nasty in the twinkling of an eye or positive word about Aston Villa, this preachy "tellin' ya kid" about the working class club in Birmingham, Range Rovers and Bruges reveals a huge inferiority complex that is generally, but not always, reconciled by violence or the threat of violence.
