About

The Football Forge

The site is dedicated to coverage of all things Birmingham Legion FC. We will provide a full range of content, including game previews, (almost certainly unreliable) predictions, game reports and analysis, as well as general news about the team. We have a USSF-certified referee on staff, so we will also examine some of the more controversial decisions made on the field.

We’ll also cover anything USL-related and whatever else may impact the Legion. And maybe we’ll get to cover the new UPSL team FC Birmingham when they take the field.

And let’s not forget that other Birmingham across the pond…


Our Staff

John Fuller

I’ve been a Legion season ticket holder since day one, and a soccer fan for longer than I care to admit. Other teams I support include Manchester United, West Ham United (my home town team) and Atlanta United. I also write for the Atlanta United SBNation blog Dirty South Soccer.

I fell in love with the world of soccer during the heroics of the World Cup of 2014 and haven’t looked back since. Also a fan of Manchester United and Arsenal of the English Premier League, and Atlanta United of MLS, I’ve been following Birmingham soccer since the days of the Hammers.
