Nah I don't think we should do that.

And I don't think that's our own doing, more so the government's over the last 50 years. We were doing just fine as the second city until the 60s when they got involved.

And I wouldn't take any of those figures seriously. Especially the regional ones. Plus we all know there is a bias towards Manchester in this country. Nobody likes Birmingham until they visit at the end of the day.

We'll take the reins again in no time when the West Midlands becomes a powerhouse once more, as long as we don't see a repeat of the last time. There'll probably be a point in time when we join up with the East Midlands too.
