Rainbow after the rain

When I set off to go to the game on Friday, I wasn’t at all sure I wanted to go. But, as I was on the bus going to town, I saw a faint rainbow in the sky and that lifted my spirits. I don’t believe that God is a Birmingham City fan and didn’t interpret the rainbow to mean that Blues were going to win. But I remembered that God told Noah that the rainbow was a sign of His promise to all people and thought of other times when a rainbow had encouraged me.

That didn’t stop me worrying during the game. Darren Randolph kept making saves and, until Villalba scored, I was afraid we might not manage to get a ball go past him into the net. I was also worried about Jutkiewicz, who looked tired or injured after some hard tackles. After we went a goal up, I was afraid that Middlesbrough would equalise and sure enough, they did in the 87th minute. Then I spent a couple of minutes in despair that, despite our dominance in shots and corners, we’d failed to hold onto our lead.  Then Odin Bailey scored in the 89th minutes and I only had to worry for 5 more minutes of time added on until the final whistle came.  

It was a fantastic game, with a good performance from our players and from the crowd, with many staying to applaud the team off the pitch.  And Blues are 12th in the table, just in the top half.

    My thoughts were exactly as you described like to think we may of turned a corner and have learned to press the game and we have some very good ball players now who are also putting in the hard work off the ball just like to add that delivery from Crawley was top class reminded me of Trev years ago

    In this year of 5780 (Jewish calendar ) I feel that we are going in the right direction; the football is way better than when Noah was our manager. Win,draw or lose I want to see us play this way. There will be more wins if we play a high end game. Noah would have supported the Blues, manager or not. Of this I am sure.

    Maybe there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Blues certainly do deserve some breaks. It would have been unjust if we only got one point out that game. It was a great game. Although stressing at times I’m sure I felt all emotions possible throughout the whole game.

    Crowley, Sunjic and Colin were awesome, now we just need to put games to bed while we are on top because as Way Cool says it would have been cruel to get just one point that display
