  1. Chuckle Bro no 1. Great. Welcome back, have a pint.
  2. We really, really wouldn't.
  3. Sadly this is very much true, I just don't really want to admit it. I'm in an office of 50 people in Digbeth, and the entire office support either Liverpool, Man United or Arsenal. I'm the only Villa fan, and get lampooned for it. In my own city.
  4. If you want to stay relevant, cash is important, and the modern young football fan does not care for any of these things. We've traditionally been part of the leading pack for the large part since our inception. Two more seasons down here and we're joining the "used to be famous, but nobody outside of it's own fans knows, cares or wants to know" club.
  5. We might as well take the cash. As long as we don't name it as inappropriately as the idiots out East.
  6. Ah. My favourite match of the year. Time to go hide under a rug.
  7. Seven years ago I joined this forum and we were discussing breaking the top four of England and Manchester City were nobodies. I didn't think I'd be reading discussions about us going out of business.
  8. Nonbinary slam poet. Let's see how that's working out for you in ten years time.
  9. Brother just bought three tickets from Lisbon to Birmingham return. At 4pm on Saturday.
  10. See also: trousers that look like they're about to literally fall down. Men walking around looking like children that need their parents to dress them still is the 2017 look
  11. Am now reguluarly frequenting the Red Lion on Warstone Lane JQ. Seeming as I live next door and they have Daniel Batham & Son on tap, I think I've lucked out
  12. I am approaching this from a global city image/reputation, surely you can see that? Brummies of the future can't moan about Manchester being the 2nd city if there's no reaction to things like this. Business is business, and if what they're doing is successful and generates a interest then I personally think Birmingham is not doing enough for itself to make something like what MAN did a poor business decision. And the second part of what would happen if visibly Birmingham-based business set up shop in Manchester's back garden is totally a hunch. There's nothing more to it than that. But c'mon, you know it would get laughed out of court.
  13. I do agree that it is just business, but to me there is more to it because of the images of the cities are involved, given that it's the airport of one. It's one business that can be seen to culturally represent the entire city by it's nature. I know you won't agree, but as a result I see that as poor for the image of Birmingham, that it's main competitor can set up shop where I believe the reverse would not happen.
