'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Gaffers View: Villa home CC 2-1.



Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish says there is no doubt that his side deserves to be in the semi final of the Carling Cup after watching his side out battle Aston Villa at St Andrews on Wednesday.

West Ham were the team destined to take on the winners of the Second City derby and Nikola Zigic booked that place with a late goal that sent Blues fans wild.

McLeish said:'We earned the right to be in the semi-finals and I'm really proud of the players. It was a fantastic effort by them and I felt we deserved it.

'We finally got our reward in the second half when they were probably the better side in terms of possession but never really hurt us. I felt really pleased for them, really delighted.

'They've met a lot of challenges this team over the past year-and-a-half. This was another one and they've risen to it.'

Any Brummie fan not ashamed of events after the game should hang their heads in shame, some posters on another site were calling for both teams to be banned. I argued that would be punishing genuine fans, reading a couple of posters on here I'm changing my mind

Both sets of fans were a discrace. Im glad i cant class myself with the villa bunch retaliating to the sewer rats. The blues fans acted like they had won the world cup final due to them having a small club mentality, that is the words of your manager alex mcleish haha! Forever in our shadow.

Rioting Birmingham City fans cause thousands of pounds worth of improvements to St Andrews Early estimates have shown that rioting Birmingham fans celebrating last night’s Carling Cup victory over Aston Villa are said to have caused tens of thousands of pounds worth of improvements to St Andrews stadium. The game ended 2-1 with a late winner from Nikola Zigic, a man apparently cloned from Peter Crouch with everything except his footballing ability. Birmingham fans celebrated the final whistle by undertaking an immediate remodelling exercise of the seating areas throughout the stadium. As one commentator explained, “Any club that has ever hosted Birmingham City understands that toilets will be ripped from the floor, and sinks smashed, and seats ripped out – but we didn’t realise they do this sort of thing when they’re playing at home.” “It was cold, but hundreds of fans were happy to stay behind to cause as much improvement as they could.” Second City Derby Television pictures showed flares being thrown between rival groups of fans, something which was explained away by leading Birmingham re-modellers. “It’s a health and safety issue. It was important we used the flares to ensure we could see what they were doing. It’s difficult to rip seats from their concrete setting when you’re in the dark.” A leading Villa fan concurred, explaining, “We’re community spirited, obviously so when we saw the Birmingham fans were indulging in a bit of remodelling, we decided to join in too.” “Fortunately they shared the flares, and we passed them backwards and forwards so we could both see what we were doing.”
