View from the South – Birmingham City v Sheffield Wednesday

It was an early start to catch the 08.02 train from Blackwater station to Reading. I was making a trip up to my 92 year old Aunt’s house in Four Oaks. Poor Aunty’s had just been discharged from hospital following a fall when she had broken her shoulder and with no one but my disabled,

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.

I was up early in order to have breakfast at leisure and to catch a bit of the cricket before setting off for the station. I was rather hoping that England would knock over the last couple of South African wickets cheaply but Quinton de Kock was playing a fine innings with tail ender support

BCFC have announced that GR has signed a new contract along with his backroom staff. This is absolutely fantastic news.

“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.

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
