Ex-Blue Mings Set for England Debut
Monday, 14th Oct 2019 10:02
Former Blues defender Tyrone Mings is set to make his full England debut in this evening’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia (ITV from 7pm).
Mings was first named in an England squad for the September internationals but didn’t make it on to the field, however, it’s widely believed he will come into the centre of the defence for Michael Keane, twin brother of Blues striker Will, this evening.
The 26-year-old, who joined Aston Villa from AFC Bournemouth for an initial fee of £20 million in the summer, made 49 starts and 15 sub appearances for the Blues between December 2012 and June 2015 having been signed for £10,000 from Chippenham Town.
Mings, who hasn’t previously won a cap at any level, moved to the Cherries for £8.1 million with the Blues receiving a further £1.2 million following his Villa switch - with another £650,000 possible in the future - making him the club’s record sale.

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
