Mate moving on
« on: August 10, 2019, 10:39:24 PM »
Father a Doctor. Spent years as a porter. Time off studying. Now moved to complete study in Brum.
His view on football in the midlands.
I will bring him up to the Baggies for a game. He goes around a bit to the USA to support Philadelphia stuff.
 
"Just reading up on Brum! So, Villa are the 'posh' team (like Real Madrid) and get the most support, City are the working man's team (like Athletico) and they hate each other. Albion and Wolves as towns just north of Brum hate each other. Albion hate Villa too but are ok with City (some guy in the old days went to Villa from Albion then scored against them to win a cup). Wolves and City now hate each other, they've been in the same divisions too often. Everyone hates Stoke as rivals to anyone from Brum. If it's Forest or Derby you support anyone, even Stoke, because it's now West Mid's vs East Mid's! And no one cares about Walsall (bless em!"

that is the first and definitely last time either Villa or City are compared to the Madrid teams.. unless it's a team from Madrid, Iowa.

I woiuld.certainly support Forest/Derby over any of the other rivals bar maybe Blues where I wouldn't care either way. (Assuming games have no impact on West Brom naturally).
