Lunt’s Destination, Canaries Forward Praises Blues

Posted on May 31, 2006

There’s an article on IcWales in which former West Brom gnasher look-a-like Robert Earnshaw talks about the pressures of playing in the Midlands.

You can read the full article here but the most interesting part is the quote from Earnshaw:

A big money transfer, to what is at the end of the day probably the biggest club in the Midlands, will create massive pressure in itself. But on top of that, Cams is going to have to learn very quickly.

Earnshaw was, of course, the last big money striker move out of Ninian Park – to Norwich City via West Bromwich Albion. But after spending almost 18 months in the Midlands, it is clear that Earny has a great idea of how the footballing fraternity lines up in this area of the world!

Meanwhile the official Sheffield Wednesday site has reported that the Owls have signed Crewe Alexandra midfielder Kenny Lunt – reported to be a Blues target.

    He thinks playing for WBA is tough it’s even worse at Blues.

    Actually, its a relief Lunt has gone to the Owls. I can’t see what he would add to the Blues. And his presence would reduce the first team opportunities of Neil Kilkenny. Kilkenny has the potential to become a very good player, but what he needs most now is regular first team action.

    Agree with that, Keith. We could have an AJ situation on our hands if Kilkenny isn’t allowed to develop at Stan’s.

    [...] But back to Heskey I notice that our friends from Aston are still slightly obsessed with us. It’s nice to see that we’re so important to them! I guess Robert Earnshaw’s comments must’ve upset them and now they’re trying to do that belittling thing that they so often fail at. It must be a sad and lonely life. [...]

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
