Astonishing video shows steward take no shit fighting with Birmingham fan

An astonishing video shows a Birmingham steward take no shit fighting with a Birmingham fan during the Tuesday night Championship clash.

A 19 second video clip was uploaded onto social media after the game, showing what was taking place in the stands, and boy did it get a lot of attention.

It’s gone on to get over 300,000 views within 12 hours, and has been shared and commented on hundreds of times across Twitter.

The game itself saw Watford preserve their unbeaten start in the Championship with a hard-fought draw against the Blues at St Andrew’s.

Vakoun Bayo redirected Craig Cathcart’s header against the inside of the post on his debut in what was a fast start for the Hornets.

However 18-year-old George Hall put Birmingham ahead against the run of play, coming into the box late to meet Scott Hogan’s pull-back with a smart first-time finish into the bottom corner.

Ken Sema smashed an angled drive past John Ruddy in the second half to bring the Hornets level and make it two wins and two draws for new boss Rob Edwards.

Speaking to BluesTV post-match, John Eustace expressed delight at the response to the weekend’s setback away at Cardiff City.

“I was ever so proud of the effort of the group. We asked for a reaction after Saturday’s disappointing result and I certainly got that. I was very proud of all of the efforts of the lads.

“I think a point is fair overall but, of course, we are disappointed to not win.”

Reacting further to the clash in B9, the Gaffer gave detail on what pleased him most, outlining the group’s unity and ability to go toe to toe with one of the division’s recently-relegated clubs.

“The togetherness that I asked for since day one is definitely there at the moment.

“From Troy [Deeney] and Scott [Hogan] at the top and Dion [Sanderson], Auston [Trusty] and Maxime [Colin] at the back, the whole team were outstanding without the ball.

“I thought we controlled the game without the ball tonight fairly well against an unbelievable football team in Watford. They have got fantastic players and I am sure they will be in the top two come the end of the season, so I was very pleased with the performance of the boys.”

“We wanted to win the game, and we know we still have a lot to improve on, but a point away from home is something we can be proud of tonight,” said Rob Edwards. “I was proud of the way the players showed bravery and good control throughout, and there was great spirit and unity out there as well.

“When we lost the ball we tried to sprint and win it back quickly, and I thought we went forward well when we tried to attack. I thought we created some good chances against a really well-organised Birmingham team, and though we made mistakes and got knocked back at times, you could see we were trying to do the right things.

“The changes were enforced obviously, but I think the guys that came in – [Vakoun] Bayo, Yáser [Asprilla] and Kaba [Christian Kabasele] – did well. We got the goal when Rey [Manaj] came on and we needed him tonight, but there were good performances all over the pitch.

“I thought Yáser showed real character on his first start. He looks about nine years old and that he shouldn’t be on the pitch, but wow he’s got ability! He’s got fight about him as well, and we’re looking forward to seeing him develop.”

Edwards was impressed by the reception the travelling fans gave the duo during what was a hard-fought clash, while the Welshman was quick to thank the Watford faithful for another rousing show of support on the road.

He said: “Troy and I had a bit of a giggle outside after the game, and I’d like to talk to him further because he knows this club inside out. I thought the appreciation our fans gave him and John was great, and it shows their class.

“The support from our fans was incredible from start to finish. Seeing that wall of yellow was brilliant – we all massively appreciate their efforts to come and get behind us.”

Social media users had their say on the astonishing video which shows a steward take no shit fighting with a Birmingham fan…

@karankered: Lads are all talk that sit up there, all good putting up the Z every week and walking round covering youre faces everywhere but if you’re not backing you’re boy then what you doing

@SteveBa84890142: Exactly. They walk round with their little man bags on & their fake Burberry giving it the big one but they soon turned and ran when it kicked off. They feel safe with the sterile area in between when they’re goading away fans but they’d be the first to run!

@aplin_james: the Blues around him have to step in and put a stop to that, why are we watching and recording one of our own have a roll around.

@Chrisw_1: Your getting sacked in the morning 🎶

@Sataniccock: Seems a bit excessive, no?

@MozzasMoshPit: Bloody hell. That’s certainly more interventional stewarding than usual

@WattyTix: Fantastic from steward

@gazswain: Small Heath get batted everywhere they go 🎶🎶🎶

@Chrisglarvs: Steward takes no 💩

@Jaymow1_18: pretty sure stewards arent meant to be throwing punches

@forster6063: Little lad learns what man strength is

@cw_ncfc: Steward giving some back, fair play 🤣

@martintampkins: Doesn’t do very well 😂😂

@SUFCcode: Embarrassing from the stewards

@jcottonnn: Classic ‘hold me back’ guy in the grey

@Davebyrne07: @BCFC @EFL @kickitout @BCFC_WMP that’s shocking ! Is that a trained technique to manage an individual in a crowd, I don’t know the circumstances, but how no-one was hurt is unbelievable.

@toddavfc: Poor Bloke only wanted to leave early 🤣🤣 UTV

@HornetMatt: One too many fruit shoots again. 🙄

@GarethPNE_: Got made to look like a twat tho

@Ishy_88: All kids dressed up in clobber like they’re somet, to stand with arms out watching their mate get done in 😂😂😂

@Dani_Clarke96: ‘Tough’ young lads standing there like a twat while their mate gets their ass handed to them😂😂😂

@BandanaSavos: Quiet evening down the blues i see 🙄

@DajerbalJames: Most action we’ve seen down here in years tbf

@Josh_bcfc1875: @IanDuttonBCFC need this looked at shocking

@SteveBa84890142: Also need to look at who you’re selling tickets to in the GML! Not sure where these little Zulu wannabes have come from but they need sorting by the club. Used to be a nice stand to sit in. Get the lower tiers sorted so they can get back over there please!

@Harry_BCFC: Poor showing from K2 that. Where’s the blues stopping that!
