So glad Arsenal failed in such desperate circumstances. Perfect karma for that shit from Fabregas. And Wenger, wonderful manager that he is, was such a lying two-faced shithouse over that incident. I couldn't be more happy for him! Well done, Birmingham. I never usually bother with the Carling Cup but Great Match...

Yes, they do now take up a Europa League place (incidentally, looking at the age of their players, will they book their trips abroad through Saga ?), but after Newcastle away, this upcoming Birmingham game is the first of three successive winnable home League games. We should therefore be aiming to catch Liverpool in 6th place, and then who knows.

I can't help but thinking 7 minutes from the end of that was Moyes he would have shut up shop and put an extra defender and settled for ET, just shows what a little bravery and boldness can do when your not chasing a game.

I am starting to believe the gap is definately closing a little. None of the usual suspects have that aura of invincibility anymore. Liverpool are so average just now.
Maybe Blackpool & Holloway have shown the way this season, don't try and defend for ninety minutes and you can beat the money men !!
Just put my winnings from Brum on Athletico, might be able to stay off tomorrow.

Our Manager wouldnt have thrown on another forward when under the cosh with a few minutes left.He would have put a Defender on and played for extra time . Fortune favours the brave. If you cut Moyes open the word caution would be riven through him. Thats why he will Never win us a trophy.

Two weeks back someone was moaning about three points off relegation... a funny, maddening season which could see smiles on our faces come May. Bring on the Lisbon teams!

Looks like we'll have to win the FA Cup to Qualify for Europe then!

After suffering the cheating, whinging and diving Arsenal at the Emirates earlier this month then they deserved to get beaten right at the death.
At least McLeish has achieved what Moyes has yet to achieve. Birmingham have (on paper) a lesser quality squad than us. They are the second team in a city, don't have a new stadium, have a low capacity and less history than us and yet attracted investment. I'm hoping that we can win the FA cup this year as Birmingham have just proved that it isn't all about the big 4 (or is that 6 now ?)

"Red-Haired Scottish Manager finally wins an English trophy".
Look on the bright side, at least you're alive!

Voice of reason my arse. Where that misbegotten lot are concerned reason does not come into it.
29 Posted 28/02/2011 at 11:06:38
However, as soon as it was over, I couldn't help but think this would give SOME of us another stick to beat Moyes with!! You know what i mean....."so how EXACTLY can Brum win something and Moyes still hasn't after 9 years?? We have a better squad than Brum yet because of our negative ,dour.... blah, blah, blah!"
Hopefully this year will be the one where both cups are won by someone other than the "big clubs"! Hopefully.
