New year, new me, I went for an early morning run, I didn’t have to in the end, as the traffic lights held up the bus for longer than I expected and I could’ve walked to the bus stop. The Wellington was to be the start of the day, and Pete was already in there,…… Continue reading 12/1/19 Blues v Middlesbrough, When The Fun Stops. . Remain Or Leave?
Although there was as many Blues fans on the concourse at New Street, as there was for the Wigan game, there wasn’t any ale trailers, I did spot, not so big Dave, who was standing over a figure sat on the floor, I joined him to see what he was looking at, Steph was trying…… Continue reading 5/1/19 F.A.Cup 3rd round, West Ham v Blues, Crystal Palace v Grimsby Town.

I bumped into Badge,…… Continue reading 26/12/18 Blues v Stoke City. Wow, It’s Collapsing.
