It certainly was one of the best atmospheres that I can remember as a Birmingham City fan.
And it more than matched up to the occasion, and given that a neutral page decided to celebrate the atmosphere along with us, then you know it’s something that resonated with not just bluenoses.
I’m talking of course about the buildup to the 2001 Worthington Cup Final between us and Liverpool at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Whilst we may not have been victorious on the day, we certainly left our mark on the grand scheme of things.
That’s why the Twitter page @BestChantsUK posted up a video of Blues fans doing their best to drown out (and sometimes succeeding) Liverpool fans signing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ by belting out ‘Keep Right On’.
Was this the best atmosphere ever at a Blues game?
It was a scene that brought back many memories for Blues fans, and acted as a great opportunity for fans to talk about just how great a club anthem Keep Right On is, especially during a special occasion such as that.
Millennium Stadium, two proper songs being belted out and not an Allez in sight, proper atmosphere

When Blues get promoted, but we’d need Liverpool to do their bit too

Best football song ever? It’s certainly right up there.
