Post Sacking / New Appointment Thoughts

OK, I have taken a bit of time to think about what happened so I could post reflectively rather than emotionally. A couple of things to say first, I’m not going to be critical of anyone – because 1. It doesn’t help and 2. I can̵...

Welcome Back, Lee Clark

There is some debate as to whether Mr Clark should be booed, upon his return to St Andrews, or given the ‘red carpet’ treatment.  I don’t think the truth lies in either of those options. The Joys and Sorrows Forum has a few ideas a...

Quick Post Match Thoughts Blackpool v Blues

SHOCKING PERFORMANCE! Neither side looked any good. I won’t single out players at this point, but it would be fair to say that no one had a good game. Our first touch was poor, mind you I’m amazed if they see any football on that pitch &...

With Lee Clark Gone, What Next?

This weekend I was away visiting friends in Ukraine. Although I had wifi access for some of the time, I didn’t really pay attention to the news. I had saw that we had lost to another poor side. (Yeah I know, we aren’t exactly brilliant),...

View from the South – Birmingham City v Bolton Wanderers

My dear Aunty Ann turned 90 at the end of September and it was only right and proper that since I was making the trip to the city of my birth for the latest instalment of the saga that is the tale of all things blue, that I should detour slightly up...

View from the South – Charlton Athletic v Birmingham City

Early on Saturday morning I had gone off on the train to pick up my car which had been serviced the day before but had not been ready. It was dry and fine when I set off but it was tipping it down by the time I was on my way back. The rain was[contin...

View from the South – Millwall v Birmingham City

I did go to the game on Saturday against Fulham and would normally have produced a report but with family commitments on Sunday, the first day of my holiday on Monday and this game rolling round on Tuesday making it very old news I guess life got in...

View from the South Birmingham City v Sheffield Wednesday

Apologies for the delay posting this, I have been busy. Kev I wasn’t originally going to go to this game being midweek and with work commitments it was going to be virtually impossible. Will called up and said he was going to drive up and could...

View from the South – Brentford v Birmingham City

I was rudely awakened at 05.50 with a phone call that frankly could have waited until a more civilised hour! Nevertheless, life being what it is, I was wide awake and decided to make a virtue out of adversity as there was no getting back to sleep wit...

View from the South – Birmingham City v Brighton & Hove Albion

Just before the season started Will called up and asked if I was excited about the start of the campaign? I remember mumbling something about looking forward to it but to be honest for the first time in years I hadn’t got the same buzz as previ...

Keep Clark or Having a Lark?

One person to polarise the Bues fans more than Nikola Zigic of late, is the manager, Lee Clark. Kev posted a blog on here called, After Survival, What Now for the Club? For what it’s worth, I think he’s right.  The club does need a chang...

View from the South – Birmingham City v AFC Bournemouth

After a chilly week, Saturday morning promised so much more. A beautiful day beckoned and if the forecast was to be believed, temperatures of 20 degrees or more expected. I had intended to visit my elderly aunt and disabled cousin in Sutton Coldfield...
