As you may have noticed, it's been a while since the last entry. A derby day defeat can knock the stuffing out of you at the best times, but in the 87th minute? Heartbreaking.
A week of taunts, countless debates fighting your corner and regrets followed, before a real six-pointer. If the Second City Derby was all about pride, the trip to Hull was all about the points. Three magic points that would do its fair share to raise morale levels in the Blue half of the city. We went, we saw, we conquered.

The rollercoaster ride that is the Premier League continued with a heartbreaking last minute 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, and was closely followed by an uneventful deadline day for Birmingham City.

For Alex McLeish's Birmingham City, it's been an enthralling first week back in the Premier League, to say the very least. For the fans, it's been a week of pain, fear, and frustration mixed with just a bit of relief in the shape of a James McFadden penalty.
The week started with a daunting trip to Old Trafford, to face the best team in the land. However, fans were filled with belief that this season could turn out to be a successful one, after a resolute performance against the very best.
Yes, United were not at their best, but Blues made them play badly. Blues hurried and hastled the United stars, and they were unlucky not to score one or two. One shot cleared off the line, and one world class save to deny Christian Benitez. Not bad for relegation fodder.
