The Future’s Bright(on)?? Birmingham City v Brighton Match Preview

When I wrote my last article, we’d suffered back to back defeats and we hadn’t yet beaten Ipswich as we turned the tide in our favour once again, yet I still didn’t even begin to think we might be discussing the sacking of Gary Rowe...

Ips-wich…but wh-ich Blues will turn up? Birmingham City v Ipswich Match Preview

Back to back defeats (first time this season!) since my last article means we’re now down to 8th in the table.  Not too bad, all things being considered, but we could have been third if we’d beaten Newcastle and Barnsley…yes that&#...

Blackburned out or Afterburners? – Match Preview

Six games unbeaten, now, and still the Blue machine marches on!  We were pretty good value for money against a rejuvenated Preston side who were fortunate to go a goal ahead but deservedly took the lead.  We perhaps deserved all three points at th...

Im Pressed(on) or De Pressed(on)? Match Preview

Five games unbeaten, then, and the Blue machine marches on from Loftus Road, back home.  Since our defeat to Wolves, we’ve looked a different prospect, even without Donaldson and Kuszczak available for the side.  Who’d have predicted th...

View from the South – Fulham v Birmingham City

It is now getting to the time of the year when the bright weather is about to turn and the light on a Saturday afternoon at the football is going to become more subdued. As forecasted the rain was in evidence early on and it promised to be a wet Read...
