We are going to introduce a couple of new sections and we were wondering if anyone fancied having a go at writing something.

1. Most Memorable Game.

This is about your memories about before during and after. We don't necessarily want how many corners, fouls or throwins each side got. It's about your "experience" on that amazing day! (Don't worry if we get repeats, everyone's story will be different).

2. Funny memories

These can be short. It could be chants that happened as a result of an event, (although we'd appreciate it if they weren't full of swear words). Or could be that you fell down the stairs knocking out a ball boy. It could be before, during or after a game - maybe even while you were watching the game on the tele. (Guest that means you could join in too. ;) )

PLEASE DO NOT post them here. Please PM me, either with an idea or the article. We will then slowly release them onto the blog, especially when news is slow.

Kev

When about 12yo I was standing at the tilton rd end with two mates on the front row. During the warm up Welsh international striker Trevor Ford hit the ball full power. It glanced of the post and smack into my " kisser " !! Ford ran over and asked if I was OK. My face was numb and stinging but I told him I'd be alright. I had trouble keeping my eyes open. When I finally managed to open them properly I said to my mate " i see we've kicked off " He replied that we were winning 3-1 and only 5 minutes to go !!

Nowadays most players would've told you off for getting in the way.

Away at Leeds, December 15th 1984. The ground was thick with fog, and nobody could see anything. We won 1-0. The half time entertainment was police dog racing, with one of the dogs representing Blues, and one Leeds. I can't quite remember, but I think we won that as well.

That's better than shooting into a shed, isn't it?

Two years ago when we in the Championship, I used to love going to away games and seing the confusion on the home fans faces when the shed was booed when coming onto the pitch. Even better when there was 7000 doing it away at Barnsley!

Most atmospheric game I remember must have been the second leg of the playoff v Watford, when we were one down but scored in the second minute. We finally went out on penalties, of course, but the night was great.

The most atmospheric game i have been to has to be the play-off final. Now that was a DAY OUT! :blues

About 26 years ago , I decided to drive to Highfield Road to see the Blues play Coventry City. My son and mates came as well. Driving through Coventry I took a wrong turn and ended up in a cul de sac. In a matter of seconds a pile of cars had followed me in. Feeling stupid, I explained that I had called to see a friend. The driver of the car behind said he followed me because of the Blues sticker in the back of the motor. It was funnier than it sounds. :rofl :bounce

:crackup

I can imagine it.

Similar thing happened to me once - although it wasn't Blues related. The Police were by the side of the road (the real cops, not the 1980's pop band) doing random breath tests and they tried to pull me over. I was a new driver and thought they were detouring me down a road. I turned left and every other car behind me followed - right into a car park.

Remember that fondly, as well as how dreadful we were on that day.

No, no, THE best ever game for atmosphere at St. Andrews in the last 20 years was the Worthington Cup semi-final vs. Ipswich. Anyone who was there will tell you that. Ha, to think we had Danny Sonner playing for us that night.
