View from the South – Birmingham City v West Bromwich Albion

I admit to being one of the old school when it comes to the FA Cup. I absolutely love it and always have from a small kid. Third round day still gives me a buzz and it’s even better if your team wins because you feel you’ve got a chance of further progression or at

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.

The proverbial game of two halves! After GR made ten changes, I have to confess I thought that was too many. The good run we have had has been based on a settled side. I accept it is an opportunity to blood a few fringe or stand by players, but to change virtually everyone? Anyway

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
