View from the South – Milton Keynes Dons v Birmingham City

After exploring ways of getting to this venue by train it turned out it was going to be easier to travel by car. Bank Holiday weekends being what they are meant that my SatNav assiduously avoided the obvious routes taking me the long way round, circumventing the M3 in favour of the A3 and then

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.

View from the sofa I normally don’t comment on games that I haven’t been to but I thought I would make one or two observations on the game yesterday that I endured rather than enjoyed from the relative comfort of my sofa. It is a busy time of the year and I actually did go

How will we do this year? How will we do this year?

Last season we had a poor start but then probably over achieved after Gary Rowett took over. From being in the bottom three to finishing tenth was an amazing turnaround but can we keep it up? Over the summer a few new faces have arrived and there have been less departures than in previous seasons.

“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
