Lots of Blues fans have been reacting to a rather generous offer that the club made
I’m pretty sure this isn’t the response that they were looking for when they set this whole thing up.
I’m not even sure if this falls in the category of ‘any publicity is good publicity’, but one thing is for sure, it has certainly got the attention of the Blues fans on social media. The club announced yesterday that in partnership with Holland’s Pies, that they were going to be donating as many as 250 pies to the local Trussell Trust foodbank in Birmingham.
It’s certainly a very generous gesture in these difficult times, however, that doesn’t seem to be the attitude that fans were taking about it all.
Now pies have been a very controversial matter at St Andrew’s, with the club going so far as to release a statement about the concerns raised by fans earlier in the campaign, so when they heard that this generous act was going to take place, they decided to see the funny side in it all.
Aren’t things bad enough without inflicting these awful tasteless pies on people

Are you struggling to cope with there being no real football on?
Let’s hope that any more good gestures like this get a slightly better reception.
