BLIND, STUPID AND DESPERATE
 
01/02: Preview: Birmingham City
Opposition opinion
by Darrell Hill of End of the Road BCFC

What happened last season?
Last season for Birmingham was upsetting. Although we got to the Worthington Cup Final and lost on penalties, we did compete against a good Premiership side and I will never forget that day as long as I live. The Preston game as well in the play offs - in the first leg when we won 1-0, I thought "Yep, we're through to the final", but... it didn't work out like that and I couldnt believe we lost in the second leg. Are Birmingham ever going to make it past the play offs? I really think next season (2001/02) we can really make a push for promotion.

What's going to happen next season?
Birmingham's next season will be a good one. I think we have signed a good new player (Tommy Mooney) - hee-hee, Watford fans. I really think he will get us up as he scored more than twenty goals for Watford last season, so I think we can make a push for second spot. If not, play-offs but I really don't want it to end up like the past 3 years!

Can you recommend a pub for away fans?
Although the majority of Blues fans are a friendly bunch, there are a few mindless minority who alas frequent the local pubs - not recommended to visit the local pubs with rival team colours.

What's the nearest railway station?
Birmingham New Street. Not that far from the ground - you can actually see the ground when you get off the train. It's about 5-10 minutes by bus.

Where is the best place to park?
The Church of Prophet car park on Cattel Road, 3.00.

Soundbites (from assorted Census correspondents)

"If Blues dont win automatic promotion, I hope we will play Watford in the final cuz i would love to see Tommy Mooney score against you guys. Sorry!"

"Tommy Mooney is not the striker we need. I wish we'd stop filling up the team with free-transfered rejects and spend some money on younger potential."

"Our board has about as much ambition as Crewe!""

"Blues are the best team in Div 1 by miles, its only been a conspiracy by other jealous clubs and referees that have stoped us going up..this time its different!!!!"

"We all Villa" (sic)
