'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Birmingham V Leeds OFF!

Leeds fans should be aware that the game between Leeds United and Birmingham City at St.Andrews has been called off.

A recently re-laid pitch, coupled with the current awful weather has seen the game postponed. Nicklas Bendtner went over on his ankle after catching a divot which proved how awful the pitch was. Apparently this is the backup pitch for Wembley. Which confuses me, how can it have a backup pitch in Birmingham?

The Football League will now investigate what on earths going on. In this day and age of technology should we not be getting on with things. Or has football below the Premiership now become a victim to the over-paid wimps that plague the top league in our nation?

Birmingham City director Karen Brady had this to say:

'Absolutely nothing more could have been done in terms of manpower, machinery and equipment to try and get this game on following the freak weather Tuesday into Wednesday.'

Which translated means:

'blah blah blah, naff excuse blah!'

A new date will be scheduled shortly, and all tickets for tomorrow`s game will be considered valid for the re-arranged fixture.

The following is a club political statement from Vital Leeds to the Football League.

Give us the 3 points...PLEASE?!

Your point of view can hardly be taken seriously when you're not even prepared to read the BCFC club statement...

Uh-oh. Angry bluenose alert! What on earth were you playing at laying a new pitch mid-season. Why not do it in the summer like your illustrious neighbours did. Another high-profile blunder after the diary fiasco. The wheels are falling off the Bluenose promotion trail! I did read your clubs statement, and alot of it sounds like pure spin to me. You can go to all the experts you like...however the Football League are still investigating so have fun with that one!

Sad thing for Leeds is it will allow them to fall behind the other teams near them. At least you don't need to worry about the rematch clashing with a cup game! :)
Nottingham Tiger
Oh yes the horror falling behind because WE DON'T PLAY! Means a game in hand. Not too fussed about the FA Cup as long as we stay up.

I didn't fancy are chances on saturday at all hopefully when the games rearranged we may of found some form and go to st andrews and get a result. (not much straw left to clutch)
dazza71
