My day started with a text off Jinksy apologising for the drunk text the previous night. Along with telling me of meeting a Rangers season ticket holder from Dublin. Talk about living with the enemy. I thought living where I do was bad enough. He gazumps me. Jinksy also mentioned locking Nat Peters out of…… Continue reading 23/9/17 Derby County v Blues Donghead
I just wasn’t feeling it. Don’t know why, just wasn’t. It was Saturday, so no work. I was watching Blues, something I look forward to all week. I was meeting up with my lad, I don’t see him enough and there was beer to be drunk but I just felt flat. Then as I’m walking…… Continue reading 16/9/17 Blues v Preston North End. Never mind chop suey, chop Harry.

Being out in the dark was exiting as a kid. I find it boring now. I stuck my head in the Guardian. I surprise…… Continue reading 9/9/17 Norwich City v Blues. You just can’t go wrong in Norwich.
When the fixtures came out, I note when the international breaks are. I know both Sky and the West Midlands police will have a go at decimating the rest of the fixtures but at least I can start planning my ground hopping. First and foremost, I have no interest in the national football team. That…… Continue reading 2/9/17 Gillingham V Shrewsbury Town. Is my Sister trying to tell me something?
Once I’d emerged from my lie down in a dark room, I started to not only piece together what had actually happened on deadline day but also the lead up throughout the close season. To be honest, there’s still a lot of dust in the air and so it’s still relatively hazy. Amongst the relegation…… Continue reading What just happened?
