Lots of Blues fans have been feeling rather nostalgic after the club posted a throwback image on Twitter.

Yesterday marked the anniversary of a rather sad day in the history of Birmingham City Football Club, although one that did allow us to take a step into the future (what is now the present). It was on that day in 1994 that the club said goodbye to the old Kop and Tilton Road stand before they were converted into all-seater stands following the Taylor Report at the end of the 1980s.

Would you be in favour of St Andrew's installing 'safe standing'?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And when the club posted a photo of the last game as we played out a 2-2 draw with Bristol City, it gave fans to look back at their favourite memories of the two stands as they flooded to social media to comment.

Who knows what the future of St Andrew’s holds? Or indeed if the Blues are going to stay there forever. There has been talk of going elsewhere in the past, who’s to say that prospect won’t rear its head again.
