Blues face Barnsley on Saturday in a bid for survival in the Championship, but will it be curtains for Cotterill if they don't get the result? After the total embarrassment at Brentford, the fans turned quickly (more so in recent months) on him and I don't think it was just because of the amount of goals we conceded either... Blues now...
Following the ugly defeat to Brentford last night, Blues fans were quick to kick-start the managerial carousel yet again. Calls of 'there's only one man that can save us now' and 'surely better than what we've got now' were among the animosity online. As they say, desperate times call for desperate measures, but we're used to that now. Oh yes, the...
“I'm tired of losing my voice every Saturday from screaming "Shoot!", only to see the ball get played back, and back, and back, until it finds the feet of David Stockdale” “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take,” Wayne Gretzky said that. For those that aren't well read on American sports, Gretzky (nicknamed 'The Great One') is widely...
“Dave at work; he's only seen 3 games in the last 12 years but now suddenly he's the World's biggest Villa fan and a close personal friend of Steve Bruce's wife's hair stylist” When I was a kid growing up in Hall Green, there were 3 types of football fans. There were those with parents that understood the game, loved...
The impression I get from global football coverage is that style of play has become as important, if not more important, than results. The Championship in particular is awash with teams boasting hipster gaffers coaching aspirational football. The various recent managers at Leeds, for example, have been working in this vein with little success. I do, however, think Paul...
Back when I was a season ticket holder listening to the Tom Ross phone-in on the way home was a must. The entertainment value alone made it well worthwhile. Where else could you listen to a ten minute tirade about the match from some enraged fan only to discover right at the end of the call that he hadn’t...
“I sincerely apologise for getting on your back and completely retract my statement of “Sacking Steve is our only chance of survival” Well, here it is. It's been a long time coming and is perhaps a little overdue. Retractions and apologies are often found deep within newspapers where they will be seldom seen or hidden in whispered after thoughts that...
The business that has been completed this transfer window by Birmingham City has divided opinion amongst the Blues faithful. Departures were expected, but so were some incomings, so what squad is Cotterill left with after the most frugal of windows under new(ish) owners TTA? The departures of some seem fairly straightforward. Storer out on loan to gain valuable first team...
“When he's not putting crosses and through balls in to Big Sam, he can often be found helping the elderly cross roads, serving soup down at the homeless shelter or rescuing frightened cats from trees. The man lives to assist people” This is it. Mark the day on your calendars, go up in the loft and get your Christmas decorations...
When you’re far away from Birmingham like me you rely heavily on the media to keep up to date with all things Blues. I’ve always felt the local press and so on do a great job of covering Birmingham’s progress and thanks to the internet all of those resources are readily available to me. There is something special, however,...
