Doesn't quite tie in with the media narrative yesterday, of it being 'the most important election for generations' and numerous photos of queues at polling stations. Must have been all those Tory supporters coming out the woodwork.
Sorry but I think typically it's much harder to create an atmosphere if you're strung along a side stand, rather than concentrated behind the goal. And that's why I think a lot of clubs do it, to mitigate the amount of noise away fans might make. And that adversely affects the atmosphere in a football ground as a whole.
I was at uni in Birmingham so to be fair I may be biased.
Like I said I think all the football grounds in the area are great, typically traditional in style with passionate home support. Unless of course you find yourself outplayed by QPR ;)
Till a few years ago Molineux was my favourite football ground other than LR, but they developed it further and filled in the corners, it's not quite the same any more. And they now put away fans in the side stand which is sh1te.
Amos looks good technically but maybe still a bit overawed by the pace and physicality of Championship football. Hopefully he'll improve with more starts. Same for Kane who is struggling for consistency.
And Hugill should have passed to Amos late on, rather than take the shot which he dragged well wide!
Yeah it's always easy to slag off other teams/cities isn't it?
I agree St Andrew's is a great old ground (in fact I think the West Midlands grounds are amongst the best in the country), it was disappointing though how their fans started heading home after the second goal went in. There was still half an hour left, you're playing QPR, have some belief!
Also a shame given the great brewing tradition of the area, that the only beers on tap in the away end were Amstel and John Smith's. Dear oh dear.
A few new chants last night that I hadn't heard before, seems the QPR yoof behind us had been busy with some compositions (some better than others...). For sure the BOS chant had caught on by the end of the evening.
