The official Birmingham City FC podcast, presented by Dale Moon and Callum Denning
The Blues Talk podcast returns with Dale Moon and Callum Denning taking a look back at the run-up to the international break.
Blues remain unbeaten after an incredible display of character to come back from conceding a penalty in the dying minutes at home to Rotherham United and a desperately unlucky end to the trip up the M6 to take on Stoke City. With the international transfer window closing, the lads discuss what tenth signing Riley McGree brings to the side.
The fixture calendar ramps up after the international break, too, with five games in two weeks. Dale and Callum analyse the newly-acquired depth in the Blues squad before handing over to a man who knows more about it than any other.
Head Coach Aitor Karanka joins the podcast for a 40 minute chat about his illustrious career - listen out for some names you might have heard of! - and how he's finding life at Blues so far as well as his plans for the future.
This one is not to be missed!
As a busy summer at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium continues, Blues Talk’s Dale Moon & Callum Denning catch up with the first face through the door this summer.
Experienced defender George Friend was the first signing of the Aitor Karanka era at St Andrew’s, and fresh after making his first league appearances for the Club, he gets a Blues Talk debut under his belt, too!
Dale and Callum speak to George about his experience working under the Head Coach at Middlesbrough, arriving with familiar face Adam Clayton, and how he’s settled in to the Club so far since arriving in the West Midlands.
And, after a promising start to the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship campaign, the lads look back on four points taken from a possible six against two previous play-off contenders ahead of a visit from a former Blue this weekend.
And finally, Dale and Callum answer the question: do they know the way to San José?
The Blues Talk podcast with Dale Moon and Callum Denning returns after a prolonged absence due to the suspension of the 2019/20 season.
With new Head Coach Aitor Karanka at the helm at Blues, and seven (or six at the time of recording!) new faces through the door, Dale & Callum talk you through the new additions, discuss their hopes for the season and take a look back at a set of pre-season fixtures that saw a trip to North London, as well as a Trillion Trophy Training Centre trio.
And, for the first time, Club captain Harlee Dean joins the podcast to preview the visit of his former side Brentford in this season's Sky Bet Championship opener, as well as reflecting on his time at the Club so far - from signing in 2017 to learning how to play in front of an empty St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium after the restart.
Listen out for a slightly controversial family ranking!
Dale Moon and Colin Tattum catch up with former Blues winger Paul Devlin to unearth some untold stories from a career spanning more than two decades. 'Devs' recalls some memorable moments from his two stints at St. Andrew's and takes listeners back to a time of play-offs and promotions. Having scored 35 goals in 137 appearances for Blues, Devlin reveals how he had unfinished business at the Club, why he celebrated scoring against Blues and recalls a time when the "stands were literally shaking" after a memorable 3-0 victory.
Fan favourite and tough-tackling defender, Martin Grainger, joins Colin Tattum and Dale Moon for the latest episode of Blues Talk. Grainger reflects on his nine seasons at St. Andrew's and unearths some hilarious tales from a time when tackling was an art-form. Currently working as a driver on London's train network, the 47-year-old reveals the best player he ever played with and the one opponent he simply couldn't stand the sight of.
Whilst football continues to be suspended as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Blues Talk returns to keep you up to speed with everything happening at the Club. This week, Dale Moon and Callum Denning are joined by midfielder Josh McEachran. Josh talks to us about his time coming through the academy at Chelsea as the Club's youth set-up underwent drastic changes, and the various loan spells he embarked on before settling at Brentford. As well as that, we hear how his move to Blues came about and reflect on the ACL injury suffered against Coventry City in an Emirates FA Cup fourth round replay.
Listen out to hear how Josh and physio Dave Hunt are continuing injury rehab despite abiding by the current nationwide lockdown!
