Download The Latest Blues Podcasts

I got an email from a guy going by the name ‘J.J.’ a couple of weeks ago. He asked me if he could use a piece from one of my blogs in a Blues podcast that he was putting together. I said yes. He said great.

Since then I’ve listened to each and every one of his podcasts and they’re great fun and a good way of getting the latest Blues news whilst you’re on the go. They’re free to download and increasing in quality all the time. At the moment, there’s quite a gap between casts since he’s new to the whole thing. But be patient, I’m sure they’ll come along a lot more frequently as time goes on.

They’re well worth a listen.

You can download the latest one from The Absent Bluenose’s website.

There’s also a new poll on the right hand side regarding Blues’ spending this summer. Vote now.

And finally, I might as well chuck in Mark Lawrenson’s prediction for today’s game:

He’s gone 2-1 Middlesbrough. I can’t disagree with that.

Come on you Blues!

Muamba In U21 Action

A quick reminder that England U21’s take on their Romanian counterparts at Ashton Gate tonight. U21 manager Stuart Pearce has called Blues midfielder Fabrice Muamba up for the game and he could make his bow at this level for the first time after previously captaining the U19 side.

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
