Ah, the mainstream media. You’ve got to love them when they come out with articles like this one. To think a reporter asked the Special One himself about Chelsea fans chanting his name.

Stand Up For The Blues

The Carling Cup Final at Wembley. The Europa League games. The Carling Cup Quarter final against Villa at St Andrews. All of them memorable occasions, full of atmosphere, of noise and of feeling.

To buy or not to buy: that is the question

Yesterday I took the plunge and renewed my season ticket for the 2011/12 season. Blues have reported online that season ticket sales are good, and that the figures for renewals are above what they were at this point last season.

Last night saw the “Big City Event”, aka the End-of-the-season awards for Birmingham City held at the NIA in town.

Attendances

Today my attention was caught by this article in the Birmingham Mail about declining football attendances in the West Midlands. It’s not something we as Blues fans didn’t already know about, but I think the question as to why it’s happening is worth asking.
