Birmingham FC



I was born in 1940 and by the time I was 5 I was a regular Blues fan and supporter because my Dad took me to all the home games and a few of the aways.

Wasn't the site supposed to have been a gypsy camp originally, and i suppose they were turned off to allow the ground to be developed.

Hence the rumour of the curse..


As a child I was taken to most blues home games and a few away ones as well. I remember the spectators were all intermingled and would talk to each other during Half time. I do not remember any aggravation between them when one or the other team scored.
