One Or Two Things…

Just a couple of things regarding the blog…

- The content and upkeep of this place has been absolutely terrible over the last few weeks. Apologies for that. I’ve been having to deal with one or two things away from the blog. Hopefully things will be a bit more normal again from now on. I’ve caught up with a lot of things behind the scenes today and I’m crossing my fingers that it’s a sign of things to come.

- Comments – I’ve had to turn public commenting off. I don’t have the time to manually go through each and every comment and unfortunately, there have been some incorrect accusations aimed in my direction so therefore, I have decided that membership is the best way for people to comment on articles here.

I’ll post more details tomorrow on how to go about commenting if you still wish to. Meanwhile, I’ll point you in the direction of the Joys & Sorrows forum. It’s mainly run by Kev and a sterling job he does too.

- I know quite a lot of you have signed up with the Fantasy Premier League fantasy football game. Games like that are fairly popular and we’ve been invited to start a league at Signing up is free and you can win £10,000! Why not have a go? Click here to sign up.

- New poll on the right hand side. Do you hope Blues go on and capture the signing of Mido from Tottenham Hotspur? Vote now.

The last poll saw 160 votes with 45% thinking that we’ll just about survive, 35% thinking that we’ll end up mid-table, 8% think we’ll go down and the other 12% need mental help!

- Finally, Blues take on Peterborough United at London Road tonight (Tues.) It’s the featured game on Radio WM. No commentary but regular updates for those who can’t be there tonight.

    Hi Aff

    Wondered where you had been and this explains everything. Only two weeks to go. Hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer although my deepest sympathies go out to all those in the heart of England whose homes were blighted by the recent floods. Rather puts football in perspective at times like that doesn’t it?

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
