Another Prediction

I found this link on a messageboard. It suggests that Blues will finish second in the league and is a pretty good and honest assessment of what people outside of St Andrews are thinking. A lot of people I’ve spoken to suggest that we’re one of the sides to beat and a lot of people have us down as certain promotion favourites.

The only people who aren’t so confident seem to be those who will be there on Saturday.

The ‘Real Ball’ Is Almost Out

I decided to stick this in the ‘Predictions’ section because we haven’t got Mark Lawrenson to look forward to this season and I didn’t want this section to get too lonely.

I found a few links on the Beeb site that talk briefly about Blues and what is expected of us during the coming season. I figured I’d post them just in case people haven’t noticed them.

- Championship Form Guide

Happy reading.

Lawro Predicts – Bolton Wanderers Vs Birmingham City

Well here it is ladies and gentleman. Our Premiership swansong. Can we go out in style and actually win a game and score a goal away from home? No, according to Lawro. He thinks that Bolton will take it 2-1 and describes Blues season as a “nightmare”. He isn’t far wrong.

You can read the rest of Lawro’s predictions here.

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
