“There’s no place like home”, as Judy Garland once put it.
Which is all well and good, but there’s still a few times where you’re not quite happy with some of the aspects you live.
And that’s precisely what @Blues_HQ wanted to find out from supporters over the weekend, as they asked fans what they would improve about the ground. Birmingham City have been playing at St Andrew’s since 1906 and over the years it has gone through plenty of changes, although clearly not enough changes, as there were still a lot of things that the fans could think of to bring St Andrew’s up to what they deem to be an ‘acceptable’ state, with the majority of them focusing on one area in particular.
Will the Blues stay at St Andrew's forever?
Yes, but with major renovations to help maintain it
No, time to move to somewhere more modern
Given the amount of uproar that it’s caused throughout the year, I am rather surprised how few people decided to mention the state of the pies at the ground. Maybe people have just gotten over it, or the suppliers have bucked their ideas up at last.
Replace the old stand and bring it in line with the rest of the ground 👍💙

Royal blue BCFC signage on the rear of Gil Merrick, so can be seen from all in in the city centre, especially on night games, and throw in that lighting from the big night in👌👌👌

Either update the Main Stand or move the away fans there. Could do with new seats through out as well #KRO

I'd keep the pies for now and get rid of the embarrassing and dangerous main stand

Renovate the Main stand. It looks out of place with the other 3 stands been modernised.

Main stand needs replacing and Gill Merrick needs to be open at all times.

Or even the payment system.

Make sure I can get served beer quicker at halftime

What about you? What would you change at St Andrew’s if you were in charge? I suppose a more pertinent question would be, would you rather stay here or move out like has been discussed down the years.
