This is one of the fixtures I enjoy doing. It’s easy to get to by train, the station isn’t miles from the ground, and the ground isn’t miles from the city centre. The best thing though, it’s brilliant for real ale. I got to New Street early enough to get my ticket for the train,…… Continue reading 3/11/18 Derby v Blues. Split Ends.
It’s clichéd, that you feel like you’re dreaming, but that’s exactly how it felt. I woke up, looked around the ward, thought it was part of a dream, fell asleep. Woke up, a bit later, to the same surroundings, with no recollection, to why I was there. Nothing felt broken, inside or out, until I…… Continue reading Weak Long, Head Strong.
I might’ve lost my voice, but I’ve discovered my love of the Blues again. I could wax lyrical about Garry Monk, exclaiming how wonderful he is, but I don’t go in for hero worship anymore, I reserve that sort of thing for the truly deserving, after all, he’s just a football manager. However, his style…… Continue reading 27/10/18 Blues v Sheffield Wednesday. Lost And Found.
Rowett should have one fitted round his wallet, to stop it getting fatter. This self promoting, fraudster, is getting found out.

After hitting the Welly, I was expecting Mikey, not Jinksy. He was off to the beer festival at the Inn on the Green,…… Continue reading 13/10/18 Tamworth v Redditch United, Evo Stik League South Premier Central. Silence At The Lambs.
I wouldn’t say my life has been anything but unremarkable, though I have had a penchant for reaching for the self destruct button, much the same as Blues really. Is it any wonder, I’ve used them as a crutch? Today was to be my 800th Blues game. I have no idea why I started recording…… Continue reading 6/10/18 Blues v Rotherham United. Inconsistent Constant.
There’s some fantastic views that can be had from a train carriage, not least the ones you can take in, on a trip over the border into Scotland. The beauty of the scenery, shows your life to be miniscule. I’ve had a hectic couple of weeks or so, since my ex colleague lied on his…… Continue reading 29/9/18 Hearts v St Johnstone. Scottish Premier League. Steak Pies and Jam Tarts.
