Everything for Birmingham apparently has to go through Chris Burke, which makes things easy for the Blackpool defence. Blues really do need some other ideas, then again Burke probably is their best player.

Blues won't be too disappointed with that scoreline. They will fancy their chances at home.

I suppose you'll love any chance of us keeping Foster going out the window as well thenwould you?

I can't see how Foster staying with us depends on if blues go up or not, if he wants to sign for us he will sign

I do find the love-in that quite a few of our fans have for Small Heath to be rather strange.
All time favourite player: Jan Kozak

Half of my family are blues, the real rivals are villa and wolves.

I think it's a lot to do with us and blues have always been the same type of ambition and level and most bluenoses are good, friendly bantered fans instead of dingles or seals

again, boils down to money i suspect and the payments they receive if they go up meaning they can keep hold of him. also, i think it is the clause that if they come up they have the right to keep foster or something.

Agreed, I genuinely have a dislike for most Villa fans, arrogant, deluded and pompous. Blues fans are on the whole a decent bunch - where singing 'Come on you baggies' before the Villa match on sunday as well at ST Andrews.

I dont mind blues but i 100% want them to stay down.

Its the only chance weve got of getting foster and more importantly hughton! It was in fosters deal that if blues dont go up we get first pick with him, also hughton wouldnt leave blues to come to us if we were both in the prem!

From what I saw from the Blackpool - Blues game I would be surprised if Blackpool bottled it, as Blackpool looked liked they had a few better players than Blues overall. I expect a Blackpool - West Ham final, which should be interesting as it is two contrasting styles that meet.

Wouldn't want to be in the Championship FULL STOP.

It's a long, hard slog from start to finish and as we all well know, you are just as likely to be turned over by the sides at the bottom as those at the top!

To be honest
What have Ipiswch done in the last five years midtable
Derby mid table ever since they came back down from the Premiership, Notts Forest will need a lot of investment to make that side much better.
If Cardiff dont go up then I think they may stuggle their are so many seasons you can have in the play offs, Preston had a couple of seasons in the play offs, look where they are now.

Come on Blackpool.

I suspect both Blues and West Ham will go into meltdown if they don't make it back up this year.

It's a shame the Europa cup final is on at the same time as this play-off semi tonight. I would ideally like to watch both - hmmmm think I will go with Brum vs Blackpool. Hope Blackpool win and seal promotion as I feel this is better for us.

I hope the noses lose on penalties tonight and then hopefully Blackpool beat West Ham in the final. The slag and the porn dwarf really grate on me.
Did you know we won the European Cup?

For the first time in my life, I find myself 100% in agreement with a Villa fan. Oh, the shame of it  :D

I fancy a tight 1-0 or 2-1 to Blues, with Blackpool winning on penalties.
