So why this one then? If you’re expecting a long held ambition for joining the force, then I’ll admit right now, that not only have I never wanted to, but the mere thought, repulses me. Years ago, when the Beeb began showing F.A.Cup first round highlights, they covered The Plod versus Fisher Athletic. Fisher Athletic…… Continue reading 11/9/21 Metropolitan Police v Poole Town, Southern League Premier Division South. Long Leg Of The Law.
To say the issues over the remedial work that is finally taking place at St Andrews is frustrating me, doesn’t even scrape the surface of how I feel. The away games have been straight forward. The home games and how they’ve been handled is eating away at my mental wellbeing. I get depression, not anxiety,…… Continue reading 10/9/21 Blues v Derby. Making a Stand.
Two nuns sharing a bath….. Not going to complete the rest of the joke because basically it’s a play on words and doesn’t work written down. It was though, the first ‘clever’ joke I understood when I was a kid. So why Bath? That’s the place, not the two nuns thing. Well at one point,…… Continue reading 4/9/21 Bath City v Dartford, National League South. The Search For The Soap Continues.
It was to be my first venture into the Non-League scene this season, but I know it won’t be my last. The last Bank holiday of the year, isn’t used by either the Premier League, or the E.F.L. There is though, a full fixture list in the Non-League pyramid. I’d got the day off from…… Continue reading 30/8/21 Gloucester City V Kettering Town, National League North. Dr Foster Must’ve Played On The Wing Then?
Unsurprisingly, after last Saturday’s performance, I was chomping at the bit to get to another Blues game. Obviously there’d been a game in between, but that was just the League Cup and with a second string team. In other words, much as a win against Fulham would’ve been nice, I wasn’t really bothered. It was…… Continue reading 28/8/21 Barnsley v Blues. No Barnsley Chop On The Menu.
After talking to Spoons in the Shakespeare in Sheffield, I was determined to at least attempt to get him a ticket for Luton on my reference number. It transpired that neither he nor Ian had been to Kenilworth Road. The away ticket allocation at Luton, is minute. Last time anyone was able to go, only…… Continue reading 21/8/21 Luton Town v Blues. Berminum.
What should’ve been the usual buzz that goes with the first home game of the season, especially having already chalked up an opening day win away at a newly relegated team, had been overshadowed by the goings on with the stands. I had a golden ticket. Well, that’s what it felt like. It came with…… Continue reading 14/8/21 Blues v Stoke City. What A Complete And Utter Total Load Of Ballots.
I’m no financial wizard, not some kind of rising star businessman, I’m just an ordinary bloke who wants to watch his favourite football club play football. Sometimes they actually play football that doesn’t make my eyes bleed. Now I’m not someone who moans (Well not too much anyway.) Not someone who whines and whinges. (Again,…… Continue reading Chinese Takeaway.
I wasn’t going to do this game originally. In fact, I don’t tend to bother with the League Cup, but as I hadn’t been to a home game for about a million years, and it actually dawned on me that I could attend the game, due to being on day shift, I decided to get…… Continue reading 10/8/21 Blues v Colchester United, League Cup 1st Round. Shadowy Figures.
It’s been a very long time. I could give it to you in days, but I’m not that much of a sad case. (What d’yer mean, it should be longer, and yes you are?) It’s felt like decades since I was able to watch Blues. Have that feeling of anticipation, that tingle of excitement, that…… Continue reading 7/8/21 Sheffield United v Blues. Steel In Time.
