The after effects of this weekends postponed FA Cup tie are still rumbling on, with whispers of shady goings on, and simple outright incompetence dominating many fans thoughts on both sides of the midlands fence.
Ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, mooted reasons for the abondonment are many with the net result being hosts Birmingham City have been forced to issue a list of excuses the likes of which have previously only uttered by Jake Blues.
'We ran out of money. We needed more players. We wanted a big screen for the fans. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts. IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD.'
For the most part, Birmingham City followers are praying their team never invite them to a Brewery after being made to look a laughing stock in football fandom.
The simple fact is, Premier League hopefuls do not lose fixtures due to frost.
Darker murmings that we at Vital Towers do not condone or endorse regarding injury lists are accusations that we are sure would never have been levelled had it not been for the fact Birmingham have once before been charged with failure to make their pitch ready in a totally unrelated incident that in no way shows previous form.
The fact that West Brom managed to make their pitch ready, a mere 5 miles away from St Andrews or any of the other cup minnows desperate for their ties to go ahead has absolutely no bearing either.
Birmingham were simply unlucky to get caught out by a cold snap that was predicted at such short notice they were left, out in the cold.
Who said a week was a long time in football?
So on to the 13th, by which time, a fully revitalised Birmingham City will ensure that their pitch is playable, the two fully fit sides will meet.
Unless theres a bit of rain, or a nip in the air, or a plague of locusts or..........
