A week in which I’ve discovered a new found respect for an individual. It takes a real man to admit when he’s got it wrong, and whilst I may still have it right in one instance, I will be truly delighted to be proved otherwise come May next year…as long as it doesn’t prevent my own Blue machine in succeeding were it to come to pass!!
I'll be back on Sky 656 and Freesat on Tuesday evening presenting on Gems tv Extra, starting at 6pm and finishing at 2am. Hope you can join me :)
Another hectic 5 hours in store on talkSPORT, as Paddy Barclay, respected football writer and the former Arsenal man Stewart Robson chew the fat on the last day of the News Of The World and possibly the last chance for any F1 driver to get within striking distance of Sebastien Vettel at the British F1 GP! :o)
I'm back on talkSPORT's All Sports Show Sat & Sun from 12 noon - 5pm.
On Saturday my studio guests will be Mick Dennis, football writer from the Daily Express and Bob Bubka, talkSPORT's legendary golf correspondant along with Rupert Bell's reports from the Scottish Open - we'll also keep you in touch with F1 British GP qualifying, the final one-dayer between England & Sri Lanka and preview England's women's World Cup clash with France
Imagine young Blues fans quizzing their Dads down the years:
“Dad – is it true that there was a fire once at our shirt sponsors shop and our owners used the insurance money to buy players and stuff?”
“Dad – is it true that our new owners sell scrap metal for a living and that they sold our training ground for 1 pound to a man who flies planes about?”
“Dad – is it true that our new owners sell newspapers with nudie ladies in it and run shops that sell chocolate body paint and stuff?”

Top blokes and great fun to sit in with when I get the (rare) chance
I was asked by the good people at Marketing Birmingham, who I've done numerous radio commercials for in recent years, to present a promotional video of theirs on Christmas 2010 - nice bright scarf there...
**********THIS IS THE FIRST FEW THOUSAND WORDS OF MY PROPOSED BOOK ON MY LIFE AND TIMES AS A MUSO - IT'S LONG BUT READ ON IF YOU GET THE CHANCE AND LET ME KNOW WHETHER IT'S WORTH ME CONTINUING THE STORY UNTIL THE (NOT SO) BITTER END. THANKS **********
Clarity – it’s the McLeast we deserve.
He’s gone then.
Alex McLeish appears to be heading inexorably for the Villa Park hotseat having found events at St Andrew’s post-relegation too hot to handle. Confusion, anger, bewilderment and supposition has reigned supreme across the city of Birmingham since my good friend Colin Tattum at the Birmingham Mail broke the news of McLeish quitting Blues late Sunday afternoon.
So we’re relegated again.
Not that February 27th 2011 is somehow ever going to be a distant memory now that we’ve dropped out of the land of milk and honey for the 3rd time in 4 Premier League seasons. Far from it – in fact there’s a need to cling to that day for Blues fans as succour…comfort if you will, from what has happened to us time and again as a club during my lifetime.
