And I thought security was strict down St Andrews. Unsurprisingly town was fairly quiet. Kids being back at school helped. I had a quick one in the Wellington. I’m not sure I’m ever going to truly like it in there. There’s not one thing I can pin down as the reason for feeling like this…… Continue reading 12/9/17 Leeds United v Blues. Rip off Britain.
I’d gotten up just before going to bed. It was THAT early. I got to New Street station and helped the caretaker open the place up. 05:22 train out to Peterborough. 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.

This old bloke got on the bus into town. Now I’m not going to analyse his condition or my feelings about it. His condition or affliction meant he made random noises and spoke to individuals like he’d known them for years though you could clearly see by their expressions and reactions that he didn’t. He…… Continue reading 26/8/17 Blues V Reading. Reading in between the lines.
Pathetic! Earlier on in the day I’d got a text off Jinksy, the Wellington was going to be first destination. On the bus into town I got a text off Steph saying that there was only 65 tickets left in the Kop. I was on my way up to the ground to get my…… Continue reading 22/8/17 Blues v Bournemouth. You’re kidding me? They flew in?
