Birmingham City

Birmingham City

The club began life as Small Heath Alliance 1875, dropped the 'Alliance' in 1888, became Birmingham in 1905, then added the 'city' suffix in 1943.

The stadium concerns look to have been addressed as St Andrew’s gets a well-earned lick of paint, plus the repairs to the serious structural issues that caused a large part of the famous old ground to be closed. 

Blues fans can now concentrate on supporting their club again, reading wonderful history books or nostalgic memoirs such Keep Right On, which takes its name from the iconic club anthem.
