St. Andrew’s… Saturday November 18th… 3pm

I’d rather have been at Old Trafford today, it hasn’t always been particularly difficult to get away tickets, but that’s a different story…

Anyway, since the away tickets dried up (learnt my lesson, I’m saying nothing), the trips to St. Andrew’s have been becoming increasingly frequent. I struggle to watch football on the television, it’s not the same sport. I’d rather be at St. Andrew’s watching Blues than watching Newcastle on Sky/BT, and if that makes me a terrible supporter, then so be it…

Pre-Match: Obafemi Martins… or The Ghost of Underachievement Past…

Anyway, to the game that I did watch, featuring my adopted side (which definitely puts me on the terrible supporter list). Birmingham scored early via a well taken Che Adams strike, then spent the remainder afternoon on the back foot, eventually hanging on for an absolutely vital three points…

A win’s a win though, and a very important win it was too, as it was enough to lift them out of the bottom three…
