Happy with performance and the results? We haven’t really played well all season, perhaps due to comparisons of the

About this Theme

The first version of this theme back in January 2008 was inspired by the great magazine style themes of Brian Gardner and Darren Hoyt. I took those elements that I liked the most in every theme and combined them together in one single theme. The different page templates are inspired by Brian Gardners "Revolution" theme, other elements are taken from "Mimbo" by Darren Hoyt. The Tabbed section is created by using jQuery ui.tabs by Klaus Hartl (stilbuero.de). Meanwihle the theme walked through a lot of development and got its own individual face and functions.

The Name of the theme was inspired by the famous American jazz sax-player, Branford Marsalis. Although I´m German, I decided to present this theme in english in order to make it available for a greater audience.

This was the first time for a while that I had managed to get to the match. Work and family commitments had prevented me attending the games against Brentford, Blackpool and Derby, games I would undoubtedly have attended under normal circumstances. Last weekend I had been invited along with my lady wife as guests of

Is this the Turning Point for the Club? Is this the Turning Point for the Club?

Yesterday it was announced that BIHL’s directors either resigned or were removed meaning that E&Y related personnel remain solely on the board of the company. The key person on that board was Peter Pannu. Pannu who’s tenure at the club had started promising, had become a target of the fans due to the revelation of

Welcome Back, Lee Clark

There is some debate as to whether Mr Clark should be booed, upon his return to St Andrews, or given the ‘red carpet’ treatment.  I don’t think the truth lies in either of those options. The Joys and Sorrows Forum has a few ideas at present: Aylesbury Blue: I’m really curious as to how Clark

Competition

“Birmingham Blues” Play and Competition! “Birmingham Blues” Play and Competition!

Being a Birmingham fan has always had its fair share of ups and downs. Recent events read like a pantomime with a storyline you just couldn’t make up! Gary Rowett the returning hero. Peter Pannu the villain who refuses to leave centre stage. The old adage “if you don’t laugh you will cry” rings truer

(Image used courtesy of Wolves FC) I know this is a Blues blog, and I know there is rivalry between ourselves and Wolves, but today I’d like to put that to one side. The Wolves fans have lost someone who was the key in the turn around at Molineux. We all remember the days of

Following Jack and the Team GB Boys to Wembley Following Jack and the Team GB Boys to Wembley

I’d like to start with a confession. I’ve never been interested in the Olympic football before and I don’t believe it has a place at the games. For me the Olympic Games is all about those sports where winning a gold medal is the pinnacle of the sport, not something that’s barely remembered. The fact

Goals from Kirsty Linnett and Remi Allen put Blues Ladies into the Women’s Champions League semi-finals for the first time ever on Sunday. This gave the women a 3-0 aggregate victory over Arsenal after a 1-0 1st leg win. This is an absolutely FANTASTIC achievement, and the ladies should be really proud of themselves as
