Some games you look forward to. Games against the Baggies are always in that bracket. Similar clubs, with fans with a similar mindset. You don’t have to dig a map out, to see that the grounds are geographically close. Historically, we play at home on the same day. We mix in the same pubs in…… Continue reading 14/9/18 Blues v West Bromwich Albion. Kindred Spirits.
I walked into town, I hadn’t got the change for the bus. The first part of the journey was New Street to Euston, it had worked out, that I missed the engineering works, that had shut Euston down for 3 consecutive weeks, a route that I’ve done many times. I touched down in London, and…… Continue reading 8/9/18 Stevenage v Macclesfield. Glad To Get This One Done.
I hit the Wellington, half expecting, our usual table to be occupied by Jinksy at least. They were all up the other end of the bar. Paul Mason was with Jinksy and Pete. Jinksy had met up with Nat Peters at the Forrest game, and things had got messy. We were soon joined by J.K.…… Continue reading 1/9/18 Blues v Queens Park Rangers. Goals, Goals, Goals!!!
It’s not for me, trawling round car boot sales, or D.I.Y. stalls, or garden centres. I’m never going to waste a precious Bank Holiday, doing something that, absolutely appalls me.

I shouldn’t moan that Sky saw fit to televise the game, Friday evening saw Middlesbrough at home to the Baggies. The population might be friendly, and the place is enjoying an explosion of micro pubs, but…… Continue reading 25/8/18 Nottingham Forest v Blues. Game Changer.
This was my first double game weekend of the season, I was shattered. The previous nights alcohol was making its presence felt. I don’t get the chemical reaction, like I used to with the fizz, I mistook for beer, but I was still feeling a little fragile. Even with the tea I’d tried to rehydrate…… Continue reading 18/8/18 Halifax Town v Dagenham and Redbridge. E’s Quite Good . . . Wrong Type Of Shaymen.
Having a meagre holiday entitlement, as all us Minions do, and Sky on a whim, might put another game on a Friday, I’m having to be extremely careful with how I use said holiday entitlement. It meant that I’d decided to work (Or slave) as usual. Now I don’t wear colours, but I am partial…… Continue reading 17/8/18 Blues v Swansea City. Isn’t There Anything On The Other Side?
