Birmingham are already down to the die hards thanks to the NL. The problem with Birmingham's die hards is that at their age, they are dying out. It needs the Championship to get any chance of replacing the old fans with new. Rocks and hard places and all that.

People who don't go to the Brummies keep repeating this mantra, but it's not actually true. Have you been there this year? The promotion made a great effort to attract new and young fans, generally successfully.

people complaining about the team should just reflect that the chances of ending the season with the same 7 you start with are nil. No one ever does

The only people complaining about the team, don't even support the club !!!

Fed up of reading the criticism......'We're not bothered who rides....we're in the Championship and not the farcical NL '!!!

there is alway a few ways a post can be read.  worky did finish with the same riders as they started with , except ty and dan we injured for the end of the season . r/r and guests were used to cover.  BWD was signed to cover for mason . i see where you are coming from and vice versa  .

looking forward to seeing that big B @ workington next season .

A very weak 2nd Division team but built within a budget understandably. The move up was needed to create more interest cause a club like Birmingham should have higher aspirations than the NL. The trouble is that losing to many home meetings will see crowds plummet.

 

Really hope things work out for Birmingham in 2019 but it looks likely team changes will be needed mid season?

Possibly but I think he rode for Hull too after the Comets. Have a trip up next season, lot different from Birmingham.

FFS do we have to be so literal - you're fully aware of the point I'm making.

OK here goes - most teams - especially the weaker ones make a change or 2 so don't flap.

OK?
