God Bless the Blue Noses

Well today wasn't as bad as I feared it might have been in the Disability Resource Centre over at South Yardley and our Blues supporting colleagues, who are in a definite majority were relatively civilised in their glory, less than 24 hours after winning the Carling Cup at Wembley.

I think most Blues fans were actually of delicate dispositions this morning, having spent yesterday afternoon shouting their vocal chords to shreds alongside the consumption of copious volumes of alcoholic beverage. Indeed, we Villa fans could legitimately have said that "the city was ours" for most of today as the Blues supporters were all nursing hangovers. 

I have to say though it was touching to see the very genuine emotion.

Incidentally I was delighted to hear from my very dear friend John 'the Blue Nose' Doherty (ex-Solihull Landrover worker - yes there's only one Johnny Docco) this evening who telephoned Spaghetti Gazetti with a public warning on behalf of the region's various Helplines, requesting that people don't call up for counselling support for the next couple of days as apparently all the help lines have been jammed by Villa supporters.

I think we can definitely relate to that in our claret and blue household. Although having said that, I did call my lifelong Blues supporting mum as soon as the match finished yesterday to pass on my congratulations through gritted teeth.

Bring on the next round of the FA Cup I say!
