Looks as if Birmingham will be safe come May, then...

Given that Reading and Newcastle both drew against Man U on the opening day of the season in 2007 and 2008 respectively, only to go down at the end of the season, I was half-worried that Blues might snatch a draw today - but no, they held on valiantly for a 1-0 defeat. :lol:

Good result, though, even if it was against a second-string Man U side. The way the pre-season friendlies went, I was afraid we were in for a thumping.

Nice to see us above the Vile in the table too. :twisted:

How did your team get on?

The magpies won today, amazing considering the terrible year they had last year. Maybe the lower division will be good for them>

Looking pretty healthy for the Toon so far, Graeme. :wink:

I wonder if I spoke too soon when coming up with the title for this topic. Blues have been playing some (for them) unusually attractive football, but as always they're not making it count where it matters.

And now it looks as if we'll be waving bye-bye to Karren Brady if the Carson Yeung bid to buy the club goes through. That'll be a sad loss. I can understand the Golds and David Sullivan may have had enough, though - and they've done brilliantly by the club considering the shape that first Ken Wheldon and then the Kumar Bros. left it in.

Now, I'm not raising my hopes or anything, but back in August I never thought I'd see anything like this:

Incredible how well Big Eck and the lads have done. If only it could last. :wink:
