BCFC 1875 - FOR BLOODY EVER.
and for all the afters of Fulham, Watford, Barnsley when you've stared into the floodlights' glare trying to find some positive up in continuing to carry a torch for the always let-you-downs.
But let's all get tattoos ironed on to celebrate the what we are that makes us what we are not and raise our bovrils high for all the games our eyes still cannot believe, like that Boxing Day where way-out fantasy became much real fact and we Three-Nil'd the Villa, and nobody ever doubted Santa was a Bluenose after that.
and let's hear a massive huge "Good on yer Blue!"
for those who have traversed all the words and contours of this earth but still leave an ear open to the faint transmission roar of the pride of Small Heath and for all those Quarter-to-fives when great crowds excited have mass choired those boys who have done us proud and have led our hearts into believing that we are numero uno, yes, top of the pile.
But mostly this is for a future we have all seen without eyes of skipper running around the track with cup aloft, open top buses, civic reception, mucho car door slamming on the streets of Small Heath and the taste of joy that will taste sweeter after all of the suffered sorrows.
