Opened their traps and it was pure Brummie.
I was expecting Brum or Villa fans on a jolly in god's own town or Geordie types taking the piss in drink.
No, actually follow BS full time.
I was thinking that is weird, even for the non league scene.
Then I thought back to the Crofter, a few hours earlier, nattering on to our own pair from Ludlow, where their local club is Hereford, who have followed County for many years.
Then I thought of the Cockney that used to go in the Bobby, the Nor Iron lad that turned up at away games everywhere, the loyal lot from Abbey Hey, The Wolverhampington contingent, the Hearts/Rangers/County mob and even the Bollington/Macc BF Hatters.
I could not follow another club in my own country when I didn't have a connection with the town/city, but it does seem to be a thing.
