Why no no no?


To be fair, the article also says that it could be the site in Birmingham and Mercian Studios are the same thing.

My guess is that it is the same development but I don't know for sure. The article has suggested there could be two developments here.

He has a point though, well lots of them. We have made many mistakes in the second half of the 20th century which has placed a rebuild every generation mentality on us.

But we still knock down St Lukes Church to build those awful yellow things. Lessons have still not been learned...

With the (silly and not needed) 100 cricket tournament launching next year I was wondering what name we would use and here it is

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/49921009

With London and [email protected] being used there could have been a serious danger of us being called Midland Phoenix but of course there's still time for the watering down of our city's name over the coming seasons....

Wait why would we be in serious danger of us calling the Midlands Phoenix?

I'm guessing that msp is suggesting that we'd be called Mildands Phoenix so as to avoid using the Birmingham name.

utterly pointless competition - who came up with those ridiculous names!

If theyíre trying to appear a bit Ďstreetí maybe we should opt for the Birmingham Peakys!

Confused here...
the name is definitely "BIRMINGHAM PHOENIX" guys, captain will be Chris Woakes, contracts agreed so far also with Worcester duo Moeen Ali and Pat Brown.

I think msp was being a bit sarcastic about the BBC's derisory attitude towards Birmingham (apart from when Peaky Blinders is on).

It took them until 2018 to call us Birmingham Bears instead kept referring to the Warwickshire name which is the 4 day and 1 day cup name. I was being sarcastic but I am still convinced the powers that be would like to suggest us being called Midland as it is a combination of Warks / Worcs.
