After yesterday, I was feeling a tad fragile. Not mentally, but physically. Mentally, I was feeling both contented and elated. That feeling was solely down to the vindication with moving back to Brum. I hadn’t needed to exorcise any ghosts with my trip out to Bridgnorth. I hadn’t been avoiding visiting the place because of…… Continue reading 3/4/22 Blues V West Bromwich Albion. Penalty Claws.
Stop rubbing your eyes Sis, they’re not deceiving you. No, not a delayed April Fools day joke either. I’d been planning to do this for a long while now. In fact, ever since the day before the game. Seriously though, it was a combination of remembering Shrewsbury Town fans going to an EFL game at…… Continue reading 2/4/22 Bridgnorth V Dudley Town, Midland League Division One. Past My Best And Growing Mouldy.
To tell you the truth, I’ve deliberated over writing a post for this. More of why later on. Don’t worry, I’m not going to go all religious on you, but I am a believer that there’s a reason for absolutely everything and everything has ramifications. However, for the life of me, I don’t understand the…… Continue reading 26/3/22 Wimbledon v Cambridge United, New Balls Please And The Game That Wasn’t 2B.
For what would turn out to be a stroke of genius, my niece Sarah had arranged to meet up with friends in Bristol. It meant luckily for her, she’d escape getting dragged round the real ale pubs of her now home city, with me and the ale trailers of the day. A day that had…… Continue reading 19/3/22 Swansea City v Blues, Too Much Willy Nilly But Relative Safety.
I’ve got to say, well I haven’t, but I’m going to say it anyway, I was feeling good about this game. Confident even. I very rarely feel confident about a game involving Blues. I’ve learned over the years that a good feeling doesn’t always equate to a good performance. Indeed, I had a great feeling…… Continue reading 12/3/22 Blues v Hull City, Fill In The Missing Blanks.
By the time I got to New Street, everyone bar Jinksy were already there. It even included Jude, although she was simply there to say goodbye to Spoons. Jinksy’s absence was due to him already being on the train up to Glasgow to watch Rangers v Aberdeen. Me, JK, Daryl, Steve, Ian and birthday boy…… Continue reading 5/3/22 Bristol City v Blues. All Ship Shape And Brizzle Fashion.
A couple of weeks previously, I’d got a phone call off an old mate of mine. Someone I’d known for over twenty years and at one point, been really close to. Time moves on at a pace so rapid, that contact gets stretched. Although the bond doesn’t get broken unless you part on bad terms,…… Continue reading 26/2/22 Blues V Huddersfield Town. Blind Faith Peaked Long Ago.
I have no idea whether if it’s due to global warming whatsoever, but for whatever reason, we’re in the midst of several storms. Might not be the ‘twisters’ you get in America, or the monsoons you get in Asia, but it’s possibly the worst I’ve ever known it. Sure, we’ve had some really bad storms…… Continue reading 19/2/22 Stoke City v Blues. Broken China Amongst The Debris.
If I hadn’t already gone and bought advanced train tickets to London, I’d have been watching Blues at home to Luton. I’d suspected that the new super duper Covid mutation wouldn’t be anywhere near as bad as the ‘health advisors’ were predicting, but wasn’t expecting it to be more Omi con than Omi chronic either.…… Continue reading 12/2/22 Wingate & Finchley V Cray Wanderers, Isthmian League Premier Division. Drawing Fuzzy Lines.
When faced with the prospect of weeks of ground hopping, I sat down with the fixture lists and drew up a schedule. Although quite happy to do Non-League games, I’ve still got the ambition to complete the fabled ’92’. After buying advanced train tickets for Harrogate, it was only when I put them up for…… Continue reading 5/2/22 Harrogate Town v Bradford City, League Two. ‘E’ By Gum.
