Hello, I have been a Birmingham City fan for over 60 years – No, don’t stop reading, and allow me to explain. During the 1950’s when the transfer market between England and Italy was beginning, especially with the transfer of John Charles from Leeds United to Juventus, my father said to me and by brother. “Pick an Italian team to support and stick with them.” My dad and brother chose Juve [How sad is that?] where as I picked Inter. So you can imagine my delight when Birmingham City was drawn to play Inter Milan in the the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.
