Once I’d managed to get my ticket for the game, I’m not ashamed to say that I was excited about this one. The forecast snow hadn’t materialised. It looked more frost than snow. I saw J.K. at New Street. He was heading up to Leeds to see his Sister. After a quick chat and a…… Continue reading 27/12/17 Hearts v Hibernian. Capital City Conflict.
The fixture Gods had been kind enough to give us a home game. It was one of the reasons why I’d chosen to do every game this season. Not only do I want to do every game, I want to do it by public transport. No supporters coach (Official or otherwise) or lift in a…… Continue reading 26/12/17 Blues v Norwich City. Bottom of the pecking order.
As Worzel came down the stairs, a package was shoved through the letter box followed by the sound of someone running away.

I’m completely atheist these days and here’s the crux of the matter. The hypocrisy doesn’t sit right…… Continue reading 16/12/17 Blues v Queens Park Rangers. Blah blah blah
After a minus 6 frost, I carefully picked my way in the dark to the bus stop. I had visions of me landing on my rear end. We’d been covered with about 6 inches of cold, wet, white stuff on the previous Sunday and it had been compacted down to an uneven ice rink. I…… Continue reading 12/12/17 Hearts v Dundee. A McDonald’s Dundee cake.
We’d been given a skittering of snow during the night, a taste of what was supposed to come according to the forecast. To say I’m not fond of snow, is an understatement. Especially if it means I can’t get to a game. We were taking our biggest traveling support of the season down to Fulham…… Continue reading 9/12/17 Fulham v Blues. Up, up and away.
