Dave Smith (BCFC Fan Forum)?
Russell Dempsey (Joys and Sorrows)?

No SHA rep?

Some serious shit being discussed:

Quite a few years back, the stadium announcer had great timing in getting Mr Blues Sky playing until the end, we all started clapping and then straight into the Tamperer as the teams came out. But now it gets played and abandoned before the end to show the video. Maybe they could reverse that order, so Mr Blue Sky gets played to the end just before Tamperer. It helps with the atmosphere I think. Maybe more fun songs to sing along to from 2.30 p.m. as well. (BCFC Fans Forum)

More fun songs over the tannoy. Great thumbs up

I should be round that table telling it as it is. This guy asking for more happy songs over the tannoy for us all to sing along to would have had short shrift from me I tell ya.

I mean can you think of a more out of kilter statement than that. It's so far removed from Blues as to be laughable.

Quite a few decent questions asked there, in all fairness.

Be good to get someone more outspoken in there, Mayor maybe? The same time that Dong or Edward are present...

"Last season a substantial number of tickets for the game at Villa Park were made available to the Commercial Department for Executive Packages which resulted in people who rarely/never attend away games going to this match. However, Travel Club members even some of those who had Silver status were unable to purchase due to lack of availability. Can we please have confirmation that this season Travel Members will be given priority over Executive trips? (Linda Goodman, Birmingham)


Ian Dutton – This is a fair point. We have listened to feedback. No executive coaches will be going to Villa Park this season."

They will be using the Canal boat instead, or VVIP helicopter packages into the centre circle!

BCFC Fan Forum - Thread over there about the policing re: Villa v Blues.

Some rep from the forum is meeting with plod next month and has asked for questions / comments regarding this fixture.


Someone asked - Qu: "Can you ask them why they think its necessary to break an innocent fans hand who is merely filming the build up to the game, push an aging gentleman man over who just happened to be in the way and wade it with batons aloft smashing down on fans in a unproved attack. Also, why is it necessary to wade into a compound with horses with total disregard to the fans' safety. Can you also ask how they keep getting away with it? Thanks"


Rep: "I would need more details of the issue of the gentleman being pushed before I could present it to WMP.

The same applies to the other instances you mention, including dates, place, exact descriptions of the incidents etc before I could put the accusations you level at them. Were complaints made at the time? What led up to the incidents? Etc.

I, personally, have never seen anything like the things you are describing, despite the police often being put under severe provocation at times, but then i might not have been at the right place to witness it."

Nice to see people going into bat for us at these meetings have their finger on the pulse:D. (Yeah the guy asking the questions just made these things up)

No credit where it's due, they WERE sold so 'standard fans' missed out and won't this season. If they keep the policy they're ripping us off...get rid and they get mocked. Even one exec package would enhance profit so fair play #loyalawayfansfirst

Alright mate. I had a chat with Andy a year or so ago. My lad is involved from the fans' end. Andy was a bit surprised he wasn't invited. I told him how he could get involved. He hasn't gotten involved. I can't swear there's no anti-SHA conspiracy but Andy should be shouting it from the rooftops if there were. The Club engage with fans' clubs from a broad spectrum as you can see from the Joys blog. Some more 'tame' some less so. There are also unaffiliated fans so Andy could have gone down that route too. You could try to get involved too. My lad said it's refreshing to see the openness of the club and disappointing when fans suggest there's some kind of 'closed club' because there isn't and really can't be because of league regs! thumbs up
