Seals has been their longstanding nickname for us.  I think they find it amusing that we flap like seals at the first sign of trouble.  Not that they would ever do such things.  They know who they are.

It's because of the old Trinity Road stand, where apparently we used to clap a lot. That's a stand that was demolished in the last century and we're the ones obsessed with history.

I dunno, maybe some divs will jump up and down a lot whilst imitating a psychedelic kids TV character.

The version I heard from 2 cousins who are Baggies was Trinity Road related also but that we sounded like (the high pitch of) seals when we chanted "Veella".

I would love anyone to study the match data/review the Villa-Albion games and explain why WBA were the better team.

To say they were the second top-scorers that season, I couldn't believe they were so negative. When Conor scored his goal, they had ten men back in their own area!

Still, with a 'nose in charge of the team, what do you expect?

I thought they played well in the second leg and we really struggled to impose ourselves that night so was nerve jangling until the penalties when they just had defenders taking them.

First leg though I agree their tactics were odd. Went 1 up and had Rodriguez, Gayle and Phillips all on the pitch so loads of pace for counter attacks yet they barely left the 18 yard box and eventually we got back into things.

Came across this on YT the other day:



Some cracking footage of SHA losing to Kiddy in the FA cup. Tom Ross looking exactly the same as he does now. Barry Fry signing 200 players in a week.

As bad as they are now they were proper s*** in those days and it really was a Sty back then. I think that was the season we played them in the league cup.

Barry Fry was the perfect manager for Small Heath. Gobby, uncouth and deluded. The Poundland version of Harry Redknapp. Fry reckoned he pissed on all four corners of the pitch to get rid of the gypsy curse. I reckon he was just too fat and lazy to walk inside to the bogs.

When I get around to watching that I am expecting 'Kaz' to come across as a female David Brent.

How far away are their bogs that a full circuit of the pitch was an easier option? What do they have, an outhouse?

He definitely did it though as it got filmed for that comedy documentary they did about that lot in the early mid 90s.

I've always said that documentary must have been done by a Villa fan, it's such a great pisstake out of them. I'm pretty sure it started with the narrator saying something like "Birmingham City are a professional football club, but not a very successful one." The youtube video seems to miss out the beginning of it.

Sadly no piss take of ours can truly match what they have done to themselves over the years. Their buy a player fundraiser, relegated by their own player, losing a cup tie at home to a non league side (twice), turning a winning Wembley final into a story about a Villa because of one player/twat in a T-shirt, getting relegated about five minutes after their only major trophy win...

You've missed out their official calendar printed with our honours on them and them having to release an official club statement saying they had never won the European Cup Damo 😀

I liked Barry Fry. You could tell he loves football and we probably wouldn't get away with pissing all over their pitch.

During that video Sullivan stated his desire for a 60,000 seater stadium and to make Birmingham City the Manchester United of the Midlands.  Any chance of a progress report?
