It seems like no time at all, but the FA Cup third round has rolled around again. Last time we reached the 4th round, where we faced Huddersfield twice, but arguably only should’ve been once, after a perfectly fair Juktiewicz header, which we have become used to seeing this season, was ruled out by the linesman. In...
After Wednesday’s performance, I think the team have set a massive example. Every ball was chased, every man was marked and every shot had bodies thrown in front of. The fight, passion and desire this team have has surpassed every expectation set by the fans. As a fan this is brilliant to see and only inspires us,...
The busy festive period is really in full swing and blues begin a hectic Christmas schedule with a very tricky trip to Blackburn this Saturday looking to bounce back from a disappointing home defeat to Bristol city in which blues’ unbeaten home run came crashing to an end. This...
This afternoon, we take on Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship. The match will be played on home turf and we'll look to make it 3 consecutive wins on the bounce, following our 3-0 breeze against Preston, and continue our long, unbeaten spell at St. Andrew's. Blues are slowly but surely reviving their form after a rotten dip before...
The big game is finally upon us, and just a day away. Many people have asked me what the score is going to be, and I normally have quite a knack for guessing Blues’ scores, but for me this one is too close to call. There are way too many factors to indicate for, and because of that and...
Well our unbeaten run has finally come to an end. We all knew it would come to and end sooner or later, and it took a very good second half from Derby, and a few mistakes as well, to bring our run to a close. The first half was full of optimism; after an early Juktiewicz goal and the...
I do have to admit; Frank Lampard’s Derby are the only side I’ve seen in the championship that scares me. There are many good teams in the championship, all of them good at different things, but after seeing Derby’s decimation of West Brom, and their very strong performance against Chelsea, despite two own goals, we all now know a...
As I left St Andrews with a bittersweet feeling on a surprisingly warm Tuesday night, I did wonder, how long could our unbeaten streak go? Lukas Jutkiewicz is scoring goals for fun, Adams is finally starting to put a consistently decent shift in each week and even Lee Camp, despite a scare or too, is pulling off some quality...
This time last year the October international break couldn’t arrive soon enough. We had just lost 6-1 to Hull, and had just recruited Steve Cotterill to become our new permanent manager. Originally, we were positive about the appointment, but soon we knew what a bad manager we had on our hands. Fast-forward one year and there is a stark...
There was a divide in the feeling as we all emptied out of St. Andrews on Saturday. Some felt that we were lucky to get the draw; others felt that we were unlucky and should’ve grabbed all three points. Amongst them was Garry Monk, who, along with everyone in the stadium, said that we weren’t good enough in the...
