Spend 70% of our transfer budget on Andy Carroll? Utter madness

A transfer budget of £20 million, and we are reportedly going to  blow £14 million on Andy Carroll? Utter madness! The majority of it to go on Andy Carroll and Mo Diame, with a couple of loans coming in. Well, I’m sorry. Our squad is threadbare and has punched above its weight this season. Our midfield …

Sam By The Numbers

The worst time to make any important decision is when your emotions are at either extreme. You shouldn’t quit your job after one particularly bad run in with the boss. You shouldn’t divorce your spouse because they complain of your obsession with a football club. Well, legal separation in that case is probably justified, but you get the point. When

A day of mixed emotions for Andy Carroll

Tomorrow, we will be hosting a match against Newcastle United – a team that is in the midst of a relegation scrap. Andy Carroll will understandably be feeling mixed emotions ahead of the game. He will be playing against the club that made him what he is today. The club he has supported throughout his entire life. A goal of his could add another nail to the Toon’s …

Our top priority should be Mohamed Diame

First and foremost, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your kind wishes, in wishing me well in my fight against heart failure. Unfortunately, it has moved up to stage three, which means more hospital visits. But I’m NOT going to let the b****** get me down. However, …

"Now we are safe, let’s play the kids." I disagree

Lately, I have been spending more time than usual on twitter and seen quite a few of our fans saying “now we are all but safe, we should start playing some of the kids.” As much as I would love to see some of our youngsters get some first-team football, I believe we continue with Sam’s current game plan. Our home record has been admirable. So far, we have …

What amazing news to wake up to

Winston Reid, arguably our best player this season, has penned a new contract that will keep him in claret and blue till 2015. Personally, I was beginning to get a bit worried about the Kiwi staying with us in the summer transfer window. Throughout the season I have been looking on our opposition’s forums and have noticed a dramatic increase of recognition for Reid’s contributions from other fans

£192m City 2 – 1 £23m United: A courageous effort

Even though the result did not go our way yesterday, there was not much room for criticism on our performance, against a club that paid more in transfer fees for one of their players (Yaya Toure) than our entire starting line-up. I don’t usually think of these sort of articles but …

The Fear Of Comfort, or The Comfort Of Fear?

Manchester United 3, Aston Villa 0. So that leaves Villa with four games to play. Wigan have five left, but the last game of the season is Villa away to Wigan. Ohhhhh, that’s gonna be tasty for us neutrals if its THE deciding game. Exactly like the playoff final. So Wigan could in theory pick up 15 points, and Villa could

An update on Ravel Morrison’s progress by a Birmingham City fan

How do you solve a problem like Ravel? Easy. Put him on the pitch, give him the ball and watch… Ravel Morrison is one of the most technically gifted players I have seen, not only at Birmingham City, but in the Championship. The way he glides past players with ease, the way he picks out a pass that no-one else has …

Life, liberty and the pursuit of Hammerness

“You’re kidding me” was my wife’s response when I told her I had been asked to become a contributor to this site. She did NOT say it with the kind of little smile and sparkle in her eye that said she was impressed. It was more of a “what the hell are those guys in England thinking” kind of look. Be that as…

Kevin Nolan’s century goal will maintain our premier league status

With the three points we bagged yesterday our point tally now equals 42, the same figure that took us down during the 2002-2003 season, although that is certainly not the case this time around. Yesterday’s performance wasn’t exactly what we wanted, but the outcome is the most important factor at the end of the day.  I am glad Matt Jarvis got a goal. He is certainly starting to grow into
