Blues Target Denied

Fulham have released a statement claiming that reports of Blues being close to the capture of former USA international striker Brian McBride are wide of the mark.

Following recent press speculation regarding other clubs’ interest in Brian McBride, the club would like to make it clear that no offer for Brian has been accepted and that he is very much part of Chris Coleman’s plans for next season.

I’d said it once and I’ll say it again, I’d love to see McBride in a Blues shirt. I think he’s a great player.

    Whats going on?Bids for 8 players- is Bazza back?
    Good management would be to get replacements in before you let your best players go.Otherwise,you are held to ransome by selling clubs.Forget Shef,it aint gonna happen.£2m for Jaidi is well over the top and who knows about the rest-but they will be overpriced.Good managers identify players with potential,not try to pick up players who played well last season.If I had a pound for every Blues fan who said sign Lee Hughes and we are guaranteed promotion!!!
    I have little faith in the presesnt management and fear promotion is a distant dream.

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
