Much as I am grateful for the fact that we have consecutively beaten two of the division's bottom-feeders, tomorrow's game will be the acid-test. If we can put in a good shift against Huddersfield away, then perhaps we can then say that we have turned the corner. Does anyone know if Bjarnason and / or Grealish are likely to have recovered from their knee injuries in time?


1.) 06 Mar 2017 16:28:29
Think you are bang on menace. its been very good the last couple of wins, however the true test will come when we play teams at the top end of the division. It will be a tough ask, but hopefully the lads will take the confidence built up from the last couple of wins into the game with Huddersfield. another decent shift needs putting in make no mistake. It can be done look at forest takin out Brighton. their position should not put us off. NO FEAR.

2.) 06 Mar 2017 16:41:51
Both Bjarnason and Grealish are still injured and will not play.

3.) 06 Mar 2017 19:15:39
Kodjia out on the left and Davies in the centre from the start? Or Amavi left wing. Only options if we keep the formation.

4.) 06 Mar 2017 20:32:45
Can't see why he wouldn't start amavi. He is quick and has a good delivery. Surely that left wing position would be ideal for him? Doesn't have to worry too much about defending just get down the wing and get the ball in.

5.) 06 Mar 2017 20:41:04
Have we fallen that far that if we put a good shift in tomorrow against Huddersfield we might get something.

Yes I know that they are third, but. Huddersfield. It just makes me sad when a few years ago we were on the cusp if champions league football :- (.

6.) 06 Mar 2017 21:00:03
I know what you mean mate but that's the new reality at the moment
We can wallow in self pity and sail down the divisions reminiscing about the glory days or we take the bull by the horns and crack on.

7.) 06 Mar 2017 21:36:58
The only place amavi should be is leftback-leftback in the changing rooms is all he's good for now, since his injury he's been going missing in the tackling department, harsh to say maybe;but he's more a liabilty, good going forward, but going back, sad to say he's got a mental block, you might as well play him as a winger only now, a shame, but he ain't no full blooded defender now, sell him in the summer and re-invest, simple as.

8.) 06 Mar 2017 22:10:46
We play to full potential we beat Huddersfield, no doubt.

9.) 07 Mar 2017 16:35:10
Lets look at this logically. We won't make the play offs, we're pretty safe from relegation looking at the points required in previous seasons, so let's blood some of the youngsters and see how they go. You never know they may save a few million in the long run.



01 Feb 2017 09:04:54
No final word on Hogan? Call me Mr Cynical, but is there a possibility that the transfer deal also included 3 vital points for Brentford tonight?


1.) 01 Feb 2017 13:10:07
I agree with the doc we need patience now but i was a bit miffed as to why bikir lasted that long on the pitch last night as he looked knackered after 30 mins oh well



31 Jan 2017 21:05:21
Apparently Dimitar Berbatov is in the UK and about to sign for an unnamed club. Please NO!!


1.) 31 Jan 2017 22:15:21
Newcastle I think mate.



31 Jan 2017 15:59:43
BBC just confirmed we have signed Bedeau from Bury for around £900,000 with add-ons.




31 Jan 2017 15:48:15
Hogan definitely in talks according to the BBC. Forest interested in McCormack - aren't they in enough trouble?


1.) 31 Jan 2017 21:03:28
6PM - Pat Murphy reports that Scott Hogan's having a medical now and we will pay Brentford £9m rising with add-ons to £12m.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 23:45:35
Mistake selling Ayew he's our most creative spark plus we didn't replace Gestede! If Mcormack has gone we're now short on strikers!

Effin Norwich - can't be trusted to do anything right. How can you capitulate two goals in the last 4 minutes of the game? Muppets : (.




13 Apr 2018 09:09:28
Can't predict the score tonight though, suffice to say, Leeds have only won one of their last five though they are in a similar league position to Norwich and we all know what happened there. Given that we're at home, I'll go for a 2-0 win.

My abiding memory of Leeds matches in days gone by was playing them in the League Cup at Elland Road in September 1980. We won 3-1 (4-1 on aggregate) but, on leaving the ground, the mental Leeds fans were waiting to ambush us. Having chased us around Holbeck for a bit, the police finally segregated us off and escorted us back to the station and, for our own safety, insisting on putting us on a non-stop 'footie special' directly back to New Street. Trouble was, I was living in Sheffield at the time and had only travelled the half-hour up the M1 for the game. What a logistical nightmare that was trying to get back home again from Brum in the middle of the night!


1.) 13 Apr 2018 13:05:01
I love your post Menace, cracked me right up.
Loved your story about your problems with Leeds fans then getting back home from Brum.
But the best has to be the first part of your post, you said you can`t predict the score tonight and in the next breath you go for a 2 – 0 win for Villa.
Love it all Menace hahaha.

2.) 13 Apr 2018 21:41:26
Well Dave, at least I was half right on the score ;)

3.) 13 Apr 2018 21:52:31
And I suddenly feel a great affinity for Brentford - at least for tomorrow .

4.) 13 Apr 2018 22:09:57
Let you off with the score mate.
Agree about Brentford, sure would make things very exiting.



19 Mar 2018 17:40:26
I see John Gregory is on top form again, winning the Indian Super League with Chennaiyin FC. Not since the glory days of 2001 when he took us via the Intertoto back-door catflap into the UEFA cup has he shown such a rich vein of managerial genius. Well done John .


1.) 19 Mar 2018 17:48:36
I would love John Gregory back I have met him a few times and his a great guy an a good manager.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 18:21:14
Well he did manage Maccabi Ahi Nazareth so, if it's divine intervention we need to get promoted I suppose he might have a direct line to the Almighty .

3.) 19 Mar 2018 19:22:52
I don’t get why he moved away from the English game, he’s a good manager and not that old. Must be the mullar.



04 Mar 2018 11:59:18
Revolving door at the Bluenoses managers office is spinning again. Cotterill gone so that'll be 5 managers in 16 months. Although it's tight at the bottom of the league, I can't see them beating Boro on Tuesday, so they'll be in deeper sh1t. I can't really see the point in changing managers with 11 games to go assuming somebody wants it (who want's relegation on their CV? ) Same goes for WBA, but in their case they just need to be preparing for the Championship in which case Pardew is probably a safe pair of hands.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 13:09:58
On that note Menace, it was only 6 months ago I remember reading that the wise old man of football, the one and only Mr Harry Rednapp, quoted on his departure from St Andrews, 'When Birmingham City get everybody fit they’ll finish above Aston Villa this year for sure”.
And that’s comes from a seasoned professional
footballer/ manager.
Arthur Askey was the last comedian to crack one as good as that, gone since 1982.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 13:21:46
Oh and when they announced Cotterill as manager their owner said “we will finish above Aston Villa this season”😂😂 they really are a circus, laughing stock of the league. The blues are going down and their going fu*king bust, going fu*king bust, going fu*king bust!

3.) 04 Mar 2018 13:28:37
And from what I’m reading they really are going bust, got to post a loss of no more that 500,000 in the next six months to pass ffp, something relatively impossible after losing 5,500,000 in the first six months, if they go down this really could be a long long long time before we see them again.

4.) 04 Mar 2018 13:30:16
Will the bluenoses be missed🚾.

5.) 04 Mar 2018 21:28:53
With Redknap coming in for the last few games and saving them you can see why they sacked SC with the deluded belief of yet another last day saviour! As for would I miss small Heath alliance? I suppose you need to ask a Celtic fan when rangers went bust! Firstly I think I wouldn't stop laughing for weeks and any new afcBirmingham united or what ever they are to be called would be hilarious as they ground share with Solihull moors! I hope this Vision of their future happens and no wouldn't miss them as we don't miss small pox!

6.) 05 Mar 2018 03:42:04
Come on lads, wheres' your charity gone-oh no sorry, hhhhhaaaaahhhhhaaaaa!
But seriously, if they are relegated, let's help them out and offer a ten pound note for their keeper stockdale, he's not that bad really., apart from a bad back piccking up the ball from the back of the net.

7.) 05 Mar 2018 09:57:33
Watching their highlights Stockdale is one of the worse keepers I’ve seen, similar to Guzan in his final year. He’s about 2 stone over weight and doesn’t save a thing.

8.) 05 Mar 2018 16:43:55
Bit harsh Chris, he's got no defence in front who give a feck, i think he's carrying an injury and each week there's talk of more managerial (or over there, venerial) movement, the owners are clueless (long may it continue obviously), and remember when johnstone goes back in the summer, we'll need at least 2 keepers which ever division we're in, even though he plays for the knuckle-draggers, i still reckon he's worth a shout?



03 Feb 2018 13:50:05
Nice to see Jermain Defoe is to be honoured as Personality of the Year at the North East Football Writers' Association's annual awards for his friendship with Bradley Lowery. After the gazillions spent in the transfer window, it goes to show that the best things about football (& footballers) are still free. Well deserved.

Hate to state the obvious, but were going to need to beat Hull by 4 clear goals to go back third. Not beyond the realms of possibility, but a bit of a stretch methinks.

If Bruce has lost the dressing room, perhaps someone should tell him - it's down the tunnel on the left .

BBC WebSite this morning reporting that Redknapp has made a firm offer to Terry stating ' we would love him in Birmingham'. Yes we would, but not playing for Small Heath Alliance .

Flackie - do my ears deceive me or did you just describe a Leicester player as 'Perfect'? I'd go and have a lie down if I was you.

Nothing worse than messing up your own corrections. Villa in the final to beat Fulham . It's been a long weekend.

Yup, sorry Dave, Villa and Fulham to go up from the play-off's. Cardiff and Wolves going up automatically, Cardiff being 8 points clear of Fulham as we speak.

OK. I’ve put all the final six games into a spreadsheet for Villa, Fulham, Derby, Middlesborough, Bristol City, Sheff Utd, Millwall and Preston and predicted the scores (because I’m that sort of Anorak)

Whilst Millwall are winning consistently, Derby have a game in hand with the rearranged Cardiff fixture and, if you look at the run-ins for all the above, its difficult to call. When the dust clears after tomorrow, then there will be 6 games left, so 24 available points (27 for Derby) . Millwall have then got to play most of the other promotion-chasers (Bristol C, Sheff U, Fulham, Boro, Villa) whereas Preston’s run-in looks to give them more points potential. I think Middlesborough might falter, so my prediction is:

Villa v Derby
Fulham v Preston or Millwall

(though that does depend on Preston getting a point away at QPR)

Villa and Fulham to go up.

Eitherway, I don’t want to be drawn with Millwall as I would hate to be at The Den if we happen to knock them out of the play-off’s!
