I wasn’t really looking forward to this one. Any time off from work is always welcome, especially as I’m really growing to hate where I work, but a midweek trip to Middlesbrough? In November? What was I thinking when I decided to do every Blues game this season? I hit town. Getting through the German…… Continue reading 22/11/17 Middlesbrough v Blues. It must’ve been an optical illusion.
I’d been kidding myself that I was trying to save money but in reality, I’ve got pence to my name. I haven’t had a wage rise for well over eighteen months and it’s really starting to bite. What’s worse is that it doesn’t look like I’m going to get one anytime soon either. It’s not…… Continue reading 18/11/17 Blues v Nottingham Forest. Smiles like team spirit.
We’re a third of the way through the season now, so I thought I’d try and sum up how the season is panning out. I’m just going to do it on a results basis, using previous seasons as comparison to give me some kind of projection to where we’ll end up. It’s going to be…… Continue reading The R word.

Stung into action? Nope, not a hope.
I used to love Derby day. Town would be buzzing. Every pub would be packed from 11 o’clock onwards. Always a 3 o’clock kick off on a Saturday. No need to get tickets, whether you were at home or away. You turned up at 2 o’clock, usually earlier, and queued to get in. Thousands of…… Continue reading 29/10/17 Blues v Aston Villa. They went like the clappers
Always a postfix to yet another badly thought out attempt at helping someone. I’m not talking domestically here though. No Christmas socks or some other hastily bought gift because you’ve forgotten to get someone something or you don’t like them but family protocol dictates you have to.
