With not having any holiday allowance left to take, I couldn’t do the usual half day thing. I toyed with taking my gear to work to change in to but there’s not really the facilities to do that, so decided to go to the game in my work clothes. Made sure there wasn’t any company…… Continue reading 4/12/17 Blues v Wolverhampton Wanderers. Another pair of socks.
The first round of the F.A.Cup had pitched Hereford and Telford together. Sky in their infinite wisdom had decided to televise the Blues v Wolves game. It was duly moved to the Monday night. It meant a free Saturday. Second round cup day. Me and Steve Whaley had agreed that whoever won out of Hereford…… Continue reading 2/12/17 Fleetwood Town v Hereford. A load of new bull.

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.
There’s a Weatherman on BBC named Matt Taylor, who revels in predicting rain. He loves it. Always looks crestfallen when predicting sun and heat. He’s probably a really nice bloke but for this reason, and only this reason, I hate him. I particularly hate him on a Friday, because you know he’s going to predict…… Continue reading 4/11/17 Barnsley v Blues. Harlee Dean the dancing queen
