A decision to turn the lights of Birmingham's library into the Claret and Blue of Aston Villa has caused uproar in the Blue side of the city.

The council have entered into a partnership with Aston Villa to try and increase the amount of visitors to the building, which will in-turn increase literacy results in the city.

This has resulted in many Birmingham fans saying that they will boycott the new £189million library.

Fans wrote to the Birmingham Mail, disgusted with the council's decision to use the Aston Villa colours, when it is Birmingham that carries the name of the City.

“Is it not Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Birmingham New Street Station, Birmingham German Market, Birmingham Library, Birmingham Peaky Blinders and of course Birmingham City Football Club? We carry this city’s great name, not Aston Villa.”

Another reason that this may have angered many in the city is that Birmingham currently sit 15th in the Championship, and their owner Carson Yeung is on trial for money laundering charges.

Birmingham City narrowly missed going into administration, with manager Lee Clarke only being allowed to make free transfers.
