The derby countdown


December 3, 2012 by Made In Brum


Blues take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux this Saturday evening (5.20pm) and every day this week we’ll have a feature on the derby.

What does playing against Wolves mean to Bluenoses? Maybe they’re not as hated as Aston Villa, but there has been some pretty bad blood between the clubs. The Blues fans sing ‘I wanna destroy Villa and Wolves’ to the tune of the Sex Pistols number, Anarchy in the UK.

In recent times, these two sides have had some cracking encounters. Remember when super sub Kevin Phillips came off the bench and rescued Blues from 1-0 down by scoring a brace to win the game 2-1 late on?

Indeed, the game that probably springs to mind with most ‘Noses is the 3-2 win at the Custard Bowl. After Andy Cole gave us the lead, Blues found themselves 2-1 down. Then a Nicklas Bendtner header and a Cameron Jerome strike in the dying minutes (when most Blues fans were screaming at him to pass it) put Blues 3-2 up.

The referee it seemed was doing all he could that day to help the Dingles, he awarded a stoppage time penalty which Michael McIndoe took. With hearts in mouth’s, Colin Doyle saved the spot kick and Blues took the three points in dramatic fashion.

Check out this website tomorrow when we’ll take a look at the career of a player whose represented both clubs.
