Often Partisan

Record Breaking Month

November 2013 has been an excellent month for the website with two milestone figures and a record broken.

The site passed 2million pageviews for the year and 4million all-time page views in the thirty months since it was founded. It was also a record-breaking month for pageviews with in excess of 220,000 views in November alone.

I think it’s a testament to the loyalty of people reading this site and it still humbles me that so many people want to read what in essence are often my opinions and thoughts about Birmingham City. It’s been a labour of love and I have to say that I am touched that my opinion is seen as one to read by so many people and I want to thank you all for giving me reason to continue writing.

  • Aussiebrum says:

    Congratulations to you, well deserved credit and honour. KRO

  • Swedish Bluenose says:

    Congratulations, you’ve done such a very good work with your website.
    I think the reason why so many people like to read it is that you do something that nobody else is doing. Other blogs/websites tend to include too much personal mumbo jumbo but you are straight to the point.
    You also don’t pretend that you have been there if you haven’t.
    And on top of it all, you are a brilliant researcher and analyst!
    Your comments are always the first ones I open when I check in daily on the news.now Birmingham site.
    Keep up the good work!

  • Blackcountryblues says:

    You are our only true source of information as birmingham media do not seem to think we are interested in what happens off the pitch,fact is we do.Thank you for all the info you have given to us and i for one hope you keep it going

  • Jim Hatton says:

    Yes mate I may not commment a great deal but always read your page keep it up and keep right on

  • keith says:

    Its amazing thing you do for all us Blues fans THANK YOU

  • Bluenosegaz says:

    Keep right on you do a great job to keep blues fans up to date with news.

  • ken says:

    No praise yet for the 2 people who have caused the reason for so many posts.

  • blunosed says:

    A little self indulgent. Everyone like praise but this is a little pathetic. However keep it up but less of this sort of nonsense.

    • almajir says:

      Bluenosed – a) stick to one username – it’s a bit pathetic changing it when you’re saying different things ;)

      b) if you don’t like it, don’t read it.


  • AR says:

    It’s not just the best on Blues; no other club has anything approaching the considered analysis that almajir gives to us Blues’ supporters. We are very fortunate, particularly with all the complicated legal and accounting goings-on in HK.

  • kneesup mother brown says:

    Thanks for starting the fire ..good blog

  • Tony Chudlet says:

    Well done your site is the one I visit first for information on the Blues. Also the level of comments/ debate is at a higher level than other Blues sites.

  • bluenose08 says:

    I can’t really add to what has already been said in praise of what you do. Just hope one of the nationals doesn’t head hunt you for their own, also l hope you will still have time to keep op going whilst doing your book. Many congratulation and hope your book is a success as well. K.r.o.

  • Bluehobba says:

    Congratulations, I do like to read your blog and only read the comments where you answer them, keep up the good work, PS when is the launch date for your book? KRO

  • Adrian says:

    Simply the best, top guy, would be lost without your blog.

  • Chris W says:

    The only place to keep abreast of what is happening with BCFC.
    The only place where information is broke down or translated so that we can all understand what is involved as to the running, or not, of our precious club.
    Though we don’t all agree and we all interpret what is said differently, unanimously we do agree that Dan has, is and hopefully will keep us up to date with all events at St Ans.
    He puts the local media to shame, managed an interview with CY and been the first by a mile with some of the breaking stories.
    Congratulations on all your records and milestones and long may they continue

  • Sir Harry 1875 says:

    Nothing on the web compares. Thank you.

  • Devon Bluenose says:

    Great shout, thanks for keeping me informed, whilst now living so far away KRO

  • Murph says:

    Well done and thanks for the effort you put in , kro

  • Darren says:

    Excellent web page. First page I go to for blues news. Thanks for the enjoyable reading. Keep it up

  • Trevorston says:

    Well done Dan. I am an exiled brummie living in Southampton and my son told me about your site. I reiterate what others have said it is more informative than any other site, the local Brum media being nowhere near as good. Keep up the great work and ignore the negative comments of some contributors.

    KRO +DNM

  • C farmer says:

    Cometh the hour cometh the Dan

  • soulmeister says:

    Congratiulations indeed and like many others first place to see news about the blues – also great reply to bluenosed as sometimes knobbs and vilers do get on here !!!!!! carry on the great work SOTV – KRO 1875

  • Bill cridland says:

    We’ll done Dan the local press is 24hours behind your information and the way you handle the critics who do not appreciate your good work is to be commended

  • BhamCityJulian says:

    Well done to you. My first read everyday

  • andy says:

    Excellent work and keeps our feet firmly on the ground in regards to what is reported elsewhere. You deserve some kind of award for all your efforts.

  • South coast blue says:

    just to echo what everyone else is saying – the best BCFC site by far and essential reading for all thinking Bluenoses

  • dave says:

    alamjir are you making money out of this, if not it dose not help us dose it the club needs investment, fans need to get together with paladini to buy the blues, I think if you offer him 25 million he will except, I notice you never bother answering my letters, maybe I question your motive, what is the point I wrighting on this colum, you are not helping the fans because, you and your mate tom ross do nothing to bring buyers through the media, almajir the fans the media as a lot of connections through football the radio is great opening for this to happen, so my question to you is why don,t you do it instead of speculating and bring us some positive news, all the best to you the blues fans merry xmas.

    • almajir says:

      The reason i don’t respond to you Dave is cos you are a well known spammer from other sites. Do me a favour and don’t bother cluttering up mine.


  • Kazakblue says:

    From Kazakhstan many congratulations and lets all hope that this excellent site goes from strength to strength, lost without my daily fix of Blues updates. KRO.

  • an olden says:

    you have given your readers the respect of composing articulate and genuine comment of and equal to journalistic level.I shudder to think how much time and money you have spent in guiding your readers through areas of financial, and legal complexity in two systems and language I doubt if there is within the arena of sporting discussions which in the main are simplistic and often crass any other equal of non professional ability time, quality and informative nature . You have and continue to provide the lead and for that we are very fortunate

  • glosblue says:

    Simply the best. I don’t comment very often but it’s my first read of the day. KRO.

  • BigmanSteve0 says:

    Bostin site, just think your a bit up your own ar5e now &again, but hey it’s like you say “it’s my site &ill make the rules”

  • Mineheadblue says:

    You perform a vital and informative service for all Blues fans; your research and attention to detail do you great credit. KRO.

    Many thanks

  • Enckelman says:

    This website really has become a valuable source for bluenoses to understand what’s going on with the takeover, you deserve the praise well done…Although I reckon you’re secretly hoping the takeover goes on for a lot longer so OP can still guarantee to be the most popular blues website haha.

    Thanks for all your hard work.

  • Roy Barton says:

    Congratulations, Almajir! And thanks again for putting so much time and effort into this blog. I especially appreciate it because I live a long, long way away but, through your blog, I am able to keep thoroughly up to date with the Blues. KRO.

  • Art Watson says:

    We may not always agree Dan but you are a top man and I admire your dedication.

    Hopefully things will change for the better soon with some good news for you to report .

    Pleased to see the team we are putting a run together and may long it continue.

  • Neil says:

    They might be your opinions, but you are doing more investigative work than any of the press so your opinion matters.

    The supporters can’t trust the press when it comes to BCFC because PP and CY won’t talk to them and are very restrictive with news anyway.

    So well done and keep it up.

  • sutton apex says:

    well done OP

  • Frankie says:

    Testament to an excellent and informative site also.
    Keep up the good work !

  • Carlosh says:

    Well done Dan but dont forget to take the Mrs out once in a while !!!

  • Teej says:

    A labour of love, that’s why it’s so good! Congratulations!

  • Wingman Blue says:

    First class, Dan. For those of us who have to work around the country it’s essential in keeping us informed. Let’s face it, for many of us the days have gone when we could walk to the ground, and this blog reaches out to all corners of the world, wherever we may be.

    It’s pretty good, too.

  • Mark Sutton says:

    This is a great site, Dan. Well done on the stats, and upward from here!

  • Gabriel says:

    Congratulations, Dan! This is definitely the best Blues website out there. Well deserved for all your hard work! KRO
