Lots of Birmingham City fans have been having a rather interesting debate surrounding their fandom with the club.
Everyone has different reason why they support a particular football team; either their dad supported them and they followed in their footsteps, it just happened to be the local team, or for some it was a particular player that caught their eye. And for some it might be the combination of all of them.
When it comes to that latter category though, there are a lot of players in Birmingham City’s history to choose from, whether they be from the distant past, or more recent players for the younger generation.
What would you rather happen to finish the season?
Games behind closed doors, finish ASAP
Wait until fans are allowed into grounds
So when @Blues_HQ posed the question on Twitter on who was the player that got fans to ‘fall in love’ with the Blues, there were a lot of responses from the fanbase, here’s just a selection:
This lad here TREVOR FRANCIS 💙✊

I just missed the Trev era so for me it was Frank Worthington I was only about 8 and Frank just had something about him nobody else on the pitch had

Gilbert Merrick the best goalkeeper Blues have ever had in my opinion. First seen him play in 1954. What an emence man for our club
True the best

He didn’t exactly make me fall in love with the Blues, but one of the first few seasons my dad took me regularly, I was convinced Geoff Horsfield was one of the best players in the world. Got nothing but love for that man 💙

Stevie Whitton. Only player that I have ever seen score from the half way line plus he was the talisman in Witton (ironically) when we smashed them 3-0.
