View from the South – Reading v Birmingham City

This is the closest venue I get to visit all season. It is usually a twenty minutes journey from Blackwater to Reading, a nice pint in the Three Guineas right outside the train station and then onto a bus for the short journey to the Madjeski. There was a points failure at Wokingham which lost

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 didn’t think I was going to make it to this game but as fate would have it, my last appointment of the day cancelled early doors on Tuesday morning and it made the highly improbable possible. So I jumped into the car at just after 3.30 pm and headed from Guildford for the M25

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

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
