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&#...

Cardifferent Season, Same Problems?

The scarf lady, half of Small Heath Alliance and most of Row Z of the Tilton are going spare at the moment, as we haven’t brought in five more strikers, whilst (whisper it) Aston Vile have put in a £15m bid for Ross McCormack of Fulham fame. T...

It promised to be another cold day and I wasn’t to be disavowed of that fact early on when I took my neighbour’s little Cairn terrier, Bentley out for his walk. My neighbour has been very poorly and she has been unable to exercise the lit...

Happy New Year everyone. Saturday morning broke to dismal lashing rain and a chilly breeze. My youngest son, Ben was home for a few days and had expressed a wish to take in a game and so it was that I woke him up at just before nine suggesting it was...

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

Early doors it was a bright and chilly morning but this belied the heavy rain, biting winds with gale force gusts that we were promised later. I was up early and took the opportunity to chop off my dahlia tops that had blackened with the recent frost...

Match Preview – BCFC v Blackburn Rovers…

Blues versus Blackburn… Last season’s Blackburn match had me wittering on about Rowett’s first 29 matches in charge with twelve wins in total.  He’s added handsomely to that tally this season, but we’ve Grounds (ahem) t...

View from the South – Milton Keynes Dons v Birmingham City

After exploring ways of getting to this venue by train it turned out it was going to be easier to travel by car. Bank Holiday weekends being what they are meant that my SatNav assiduously avoided the obvious routes taking me the long way round, circu...

View from the Sofa – Burnley v Birmingham City

View from the sofa I normally don’t comment on games that I haven’t been to but I thought I would make one or two observations on the game yesterday that I endured rather than enjoyed from the relative comfort of my sofa. It is a busy time of the...
