I`ve no beef with Birmingham fans says Johnson

I`ve no beef with Birmingham fans says Johnson

Wolves skipper Roger Johnson has said that he was disappointed with the Birmingham fans after he was booed during the FA Cup clash on Saturday.

Johnson made 88 appearances for Birmingham after he joined them from Cardiff in July 2009 for £5million.

Following their relegation to the Championship he left the club and joined Wolves.

The FA Cup third round tie on Saturday was the first time he had returned to St. Andrew's and after speaking to the press about the reasons behind his departure he was hoping for a good reception.

But instead his headed effort which went well over the bar was cheered by Birmingham supporters, as too was his injury which forced him to hobble off after just half an hour.

If more supporters had actually turned up his every touch might have been greeted with boos, but there wasn't enough Blues fans to create any atmosphere, so at least that was one positive.

As too is the news that his ankle injury isn't serious and he should return to action over the next week.

"I was disappointed with the fans - it was uncalled for, I said I don`t have any problem with them and I thought the interview would have made it clear.' Johnson told the Express & Star

He continued: "It was disappointing. I`ve no beef with the fans but they do with me now.

"No-one knows the real story behind why I left - certainly not the fans.

"I tried to put it across in the press but it seemed they didn`t want to listen."

Vital Wolves Comment: Perhaps Roger Johnson went into the game a bit naive?

Rational thought doesn't come into the head of a football supporter when a player returns to his old ground after joining a local neighbour, they are there to cheer on the eleven who now wear the blue, not the one who did and left once they were relegated.

Perhaps Johnson can concentrate on his form for Wolves rather than worrying about what his old Birmingham fans think of him.

Sounds like a load of bs to me, simply because EVERYONE hates Birmingam fans.
