Following a tweet from the EFL promoting the charity work of Aston Villa and Albert Adomah, Birmingham supporters have been left angry and incensed that there is bias against them.
In a bizarre thread on Twitter, rather than applauding the work being done by footballers in the community, fans of the Blues took the EFL to task feeling as though their own work hadn’t been recognised.
Albert Adomah has been distributing essential supplies to homeless people in Birmingham. The @AVFCOfficial star joined the Outreach Angels – a group of local volunteers – to hand out hot food, toiletries and warm clothing.#EFLDayofAction pic.twitter.com/5TfEehskyI

The St Andrews faithful focused their attention on the George Horsefield Foundation and some of the work the club had already been doing over the winter months, tagging a video of manager Garry Monk feeding homeless people in Birmingham.
They felt as though all their club’s work had been completely ignored, but the bemoaning of the EFL didn’t stop there.
One individual called the league officials priceless whilst another suggested that they were mean-minded in their approach.
Even if it was a tweet about their bitter rivals, it was a rather unjust attack from many supporters.
Here’s how they reacted.
Are you going to totally ignore the work that Geoff Horsefield and Birmingham City Football FC have been doing throughout the winter ? Are you so mean minded you are not going to mention this work or are you big enough to put this right and give them a very well deserved mention

Birmingham City players and Management team have been doing this all these cold winter months and never a mention from you. This sums up the bias you show towards Birmingham City. @EFL hang your heads in shame

EFL you are priceless – BCFC being doing this kind of work for months but let’s recognize a one off instead

Old hat – @BCFC been doing this all year – even in the winter months, also raising thousands for the @Geoff_Hors_Foun. Even @GarryMonk, his backroom team and players have embraced this – doing it “not” in club time.
Maybe mention that @EFL
