  3. This is the BBC article : Birmingham City first-team players can leave St Andrew's
  4. Re : Yes but Celtic only want Rangers out of the way so they can win everything !! That is the ONLY way Celtic can win everything, but it won't last forever - and Celtic know that. Think of the two-team cities : Glasgow has Rangers and Celtic, Dundee has Dundee United and Dundee Edinburgh has Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian Liverpool has Liverpool and Everton, Manchester has Man United and Man City, Sheffield has Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday Birmingham has Aston Villa and Birmingham City. In all of the above, both teams have been League Champions and Cup Win

It's one small step for Man, one giant leap for Mankind. - Neil Armstrong Neil Armstrong belongs with other great pioneering explorers, like Magellan and Drake and Cook and Humboldt, in the World's pantheon of great explorers of the unknown. R.I.P. Neil Armstrong, you have left us and are now with great companions.
  11. In my other role as a Site Moderator on New-606, I occasionally try to breathe some life into its dormant BCFC board, but I wonder why I bother. This concerns Chris Hughton : My Opening Post, which I copied from the Aston Villa board : Chris Hughton This is the 'Goodbye' Thread. (06-06-2012 06:55 PM)Larry-AV Wrote: D-Day has Come. The 6th June 1944 was the day when the Allied Forces landed in Normandy, to start the Liberation of Europe. For Aston Villa, 68 Years after the Real Event, D-Day means this is when Paul Lambert starts the restoration of AVFC's fortunes, carrying on
  12. Well I will have to eat my words, thinking BCFC would end up in mid-table. The Club has finished 4th, in a Play-off position. I think most folk regard Chris Hughton as a good manager and BCFC's final League position is further evidence of that, There is no guarantee of success in the lottery that is the Play-Offs of course, but what CH has acheived for BCFC so far reminds me of the saying : 'making a silk purse out of a sow's ear' !
  13. Thanks for the info Loyal, I will put that article on the BCFC board in New-606 - Carson Yeung Thread. BCFC - Happy New Year ?
  14. Middle of the Season, middle of the table. That is where I still think BCFC will be in May.

However, Aston was a separate authority until 1911, when it became part of Birmingham. That is why the 1981 League Championship (AVFC's 7th), was the first for a team from Birmingham.
  17. Just heard on BBC Midlands today that CY has been prohibited from leaving Hong Kong by a higher court there. Will add article when one is put on the BBC website. Edit 16/09/2011 : Brainless BBC - they break the story, but there is still nothing on their website. This is from the Telegraph, 14/09/2011 : Telegraph - Birmingham City owner Carson Yeung prevented from returning to United Kingdom http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/competitions/championship/8763929/Birmingham-City-owner-Carson-Yeung-prevented-fro m-returning-to-United-Kingdom.html
