Do Birmingham City fans dare to dream?

Paul Caddis’ goal in the dying minutes of the season ensured Blues’ place in the Championship. Exactly one year on, the contrast was evident as Blues bowed out with a 1-0 win on the same pitch, their third in four outings. I’m not sure what pleases me more – the fact Blues conceded only one solitary goal in their final four games, the fact that we won three of the last four (without conceding) or the tenth place finish. The latter was a miracle and capped off an excellent turn around by Gary Rowett and his troops.

Robbo has Earned his New Deal at Blues

It’s not often that I will praise Blues for offering a 36 year-old a new deal. However, Paul Robinson has, without a doubt, earned this 12 month contract. Yes, his performances haven’t been as solid as they once were, partly to do with him coming towards the end of his career and in football I don’t do sentiment so believe you can’t keep a player on based on past performances. But Robbo is absolutely vital to Gary Rowett’s functioning of the club in the dressing room – and that’s been said by Rowett himself.

Robbo Offered New Deal at Blues

Robbo has heart and clearly cares about the club but it’s off the pitch is where he can now make a real difference. The young players in the squad have benefitted time and time again this season by having an experienced arm around their shoulder. In Football, that is priceless. And while Robbo will not play many games next term, he makes for a good back-up option in the event of injuries and suspensions.

Rob Wildey Speaks to Voice of Bolton

Blues go to Bolton on Saturday with memories of last season’s great escape still firmly in the mind. One year on, it’s a totally different picture as Gary Rowett’s men push for a top ten finish. Ahead of the match, Rob Wildey speaks to Anis, managing editor of voiceofbolton.com

voice-of-bolton-interviewHow has Neil Lennon improved things at the Macron and has he met expectations this season?
When Dougie Freedman was given the push, we had many a manager in the run-in for the Bolton job, and to be fair no one saw this appointment coming at all. To see such an appointment, the board look to be looking to make up for the previous few appointments as Lennon comes with a superb CV, albeit it only being one previously managed club. Read More…

That Was the Season That Was – Blues 2014/15

The final home game of the season is always met with some sadness. Why? Because what else will we all do on a Saturday afternoon? But this is a season to reflect upon the progress that Blues have made under the stewardship of Gary Rowett. Before his appointment, Blues were doomed and I would have lumped any amount of money on us going down. So, if you look at it from that angle, it has actually been a very good season.
