Violence Shouldn't Affect Bid Says McLeish.

Violence Shouldn't Affect Bid Says McLeish.

Blues manager Alex McLeish doesn`t think the crowd violence after last night`s win over Aston Villa will affect the World Cup vote.

That vote takes place today and now some are concerned that scenes of hundreds of fans pouring onto the pitch at St Andrews could persuade the powers that be to place their votes elsewhere.

As well as the pitch invasion there were scenes of police struggling to keep order, flares being thrown and seats being ripped up and used as missiles.

McLeish admitted that the violence will not hold the two clubs under a good light, but he also believes that the decision as to who gets the World Cup as already been made.

'I'm disappointed by that side of things,' he told Sky Sports.

'Fans shouldn't come on to the pitch at any time. It soured it a bit for us.

'I don't think that will affect the World Cup bid, I'm sure that's already decided, and let's hope England gets it because it deserves it. It doesn't look good though, when you see fans running on the pitch like that and carrying on. It takes us back to the Dark Ages.'

A MASSIVE THANK-YOU TO NOT ONLY THE CORRUPT CANTS @ FIFA BUT THE CHUFFING MORONS OF THE BRITISH MEDIA, THE BIGGEST OF ALL MUST GO TO THE UTTER MORONS OF BRITAIN'S 2ND CITY, WELL DONE ! UTTER DISGRACE. Not just the damage on the Worldwide image of British Football but just as important the MASSIVE damage done to our would be economy. Yes Villa were guilty of ripping up seats & throwing the flairs back, THAT WAS AFTER SOME OF YOUR LOT STARTED IT & THREW THE FLAIRS NOT ONLY INTO THE CROWD WHERE ADULTS WERE BUT CHILDREN AS WELL, NOT TO MENTION THE PITCH INVASION & CARRYING ON OUTSIDE. NAME & SHAME THEM IF YOU KNOW THEM.

I am glad tonight that I don't support Birmingham as I would have to hide my colours in shame. Disgraceful behaviour and nobody in their right mind can say anything different.

Rumnblack so throwing flairs, starting a riot is the correct thing to do is it ? Naming & shaming isn't the RIGHT thing to do then ? MUG.
