My ground hopping Nephew Dave collects replica football shirts. He now has a collection that numbers upwards of 130 different shirts. He’s collects any shirt from any club. I used to collect programmes a few decades ago. Like me way back then, he’s always on the lookout for more. I’ve stumbled across a second hand…… Continue reading 7/4/18 Blues v Burton Albion. Same Difference.
No, not the gap in between my ears. This was going to be the third game in three days. Something that I hadn’t accomplished this season.

I met up with L.J.…… Continue reading 31/3/18 Blues v Ipswich Town. Taking The Mick.

Worcester Pete and Jinksy were already in there. Jinksy bought me a pint. More of what happened directly after the Brentford hospitalization came out.…… Continue reading 17/3/18 Blues v Hull City. Snow Tigers?
