Friendly local rivalry

The Blues are, rather foolishly in my book, asking people to sign a petition on the government petitions website to try and help get a new stadium. Some hope of that.

How did I find out about that? From this lovely article on a villa blog.

Tell you what, those clowns of the Small Heath Alliance over the South side of the City have been on the funny juice again. Not happy with their Meccano ground as it is, they are asking Joe Public to sign a petition to the Government, to support a new stadium in the Birmingham City boundaries, so that they can have a nice new ground to play football in.

Good to see all right thinking sports fans are thinking rightly about the project.
