    Posted this in a previous thread but now it's confirmed:

    Would be a nice touch to have some kind of a "Thank you" banner or message that could be displayed.

    Not only would this help to nullify any ill feelings that could potentially arise from the seating situations, but because I for one am genuinely thankful we are able to play there rather than be homeless and kicked out of the league. Further, I have only ever been treated nicely by stewards and bar staff who seem genuinely sympathetic to our plight, as well as the surrounding pubs and bars. Touch of class too.

    Happy to chip in if anyone local can arrange this and agrees (the trust?).

    What do you think it should say? Just "Thank you BCFC"?

    I have never taken a banner or anything before but I imagine you contact the club to have it displayed? As mentioned above I am happy to chip in if someone can take the lead - not in the UK so won't be able to make the tie but would like to contribute in some way.

    Thanks

    Something like 'shit on the Villa' would probably go down well

    That's a brilliant idea. And 100% agreed - I think the staff at BCFC have been great to us.

    I think it’s a good idea.

    BCFC, Blues fans and staff have been really good.

    The Roost pub been very welcoming too.

    So fair play to them.

    As a blues fan, you don't need to thank us. Seeing your club being punished for something which was completely out of your fans control would of been terrible. You deserve better than that. But hey, what a season you're having! Didn't quite expect it, I must admit. You'll probably beat us haha.

    Seriously you go far more than I do Grends so you will know better on this one but I just think it's a nice touch either way.

    Don't forget Harry we've got the fearsome bloke from Norway with that violent looking flag. Zulus will be on their toes.

    We’ve paid for a commercial price. Fans should mix in harmony and that’s all that’s needed isn’t it?

    If it says "Thank You BCFC" maybe we should save it until the end of the game?

    Blues have been first class to us this season, and that is something that city fans will never forget.
    I’m not sure if a banner is needed or not, but I won’t be singing the Birmingham’s a shit hole bit, of our “we want to go home” song, out of respect to our landlords.

    If we start singing "We want to go home" There's a good chance the Birmingham fans will join in.

    Isn't that in mourning? I guess you could argue appropriate in our circumstances! But I think it's missing the point a little.
