Blackburn Rovers 3-0 Birmingham City

I think I’m in the majority of people who feel absolutely nothing regarding this result. I got it bang on in the match preview yesterday… although obviously I’m not happy about that! But with Blackburn putting out a good side and us making eleven changes, it was always going to be difficult.

A jumbled selection of match reports for your perusal (although why you’d bother is beyond me!)

Manager reactions:

All in all, a bit of a nothing night for Blues fans.

Still, on the plus side, Jason Lyons won the Second City Trophy at Perry Barr and I had a great time with the ‘Gravity Hammer’ on Halo!

But making eleven changes rarely works and Bruce commented on that in his post match notes. When you have a big squad, it’s always going to be difficult to keep people happy and this is exactly what Steve Bruce is finding out. Still, it’s ninety minutes under the belt for so many of the squad and hopefully they’ll benefit from that in the weeks to come.

So… no Savage to abuse, David Dunn is looking a player again and our reserves aren’t as good as we all hoped. Oh well. Shrug.

You have arrived at the archive site of the Birmingham City blog Joys & Sorrows. If you were looking for fresh, meaty stuff then this way, please.

This section of the site covers the blog portion of J&S from 26th April 2006 - when the site returned after a catastrophic hosting failure causing the loss of over 500 articles - to 28th April 2008 - when I decided to have a prolonged rest from the site.

Here, if it so takes your fancy, you can find every single article, totalling over 1,000, written by myself and many others over that two year period.

Unfortunately, the formatting on some of the posts is a little rough but since this is an archive, it doesn't matter too much. Nothing is unreadable although a great deal of the links will now, sadly, be broken. So internal Joys & Sorrows links will lead you to 404 errors.

I decided to archive them in this way because I wanted to start something fresh for the main part of the site. Hopefully you'll be able to see that up on the main portion of the site now.

Commenting for the archive section has obviously been switched off. You can flick around the archives by using the 'Find It' function in the middle column or the respective 'Categories' or 'Archives' headings in the sidebars
