Birmingham City
Posted by Arun Verma on 01/30/2011

Where were you when Craig Gardner stole the show? Where were you when he hit the back of the net? Where were you when Blues completed one of the greatest turn-arounds in their recent history? Where were you when spirit, true grit, guts, determination and passion won the day? Where were you when Blues booked their first return to Wembley since the mid-50's?

Where were you when we won?

The game needs no analysis, the fans simply outstanding, and the evening was one that will be remembered forever.

So, where were you?

i was in heaven when that ball hit the back of the net

I was there! Block 22 of the Tilton, row 17! Watched it unfold right infront of my eyes, including standing with my mouth agape as Gardner scored within our line of sight.

Loved every second. Always knew we'd do it in the second half!

well i wouldn't have been watching espn as your coverage of the Blues is a disgrace.
youv'e never had us on playing a local derby and you only have us on when playing the top 5 because you think we will let loads of goals in.
your coverage is so obviously biased towards the top five which you have on every week.
would never subscribe to your anti midlands coverage

I was there

Having lived in the USA for the past 25 yrs i have had to put up with the likes of Man Ure Chelski and the micky mouse supporters over here, but at last i can hear the kids i coach say to me Birmingham played great.
That's how blues used to play in the 70s with guts and passion.I hope they continue and produce that type of performance in the final.

ps it was great to see Trevor Francis so happy

Arun Verma Arun Verma - I'm a student, and a massive Birmingham City fan. Football has played a massive part in my life since I was just a child, and the World Cup in '98 turned me into a footballaholic; my very first love was the beautiful game. My aim for the future is to become a sports journalist and in little over a year, I can say that I feel extremely privileged to have received the opportunities that have come my way. Apart from ESPN Soccernet, I also write for the official Birmingham City Football Club Matchday Magazine, Made in Brum, which is an unofficial Blues magazine, and (using the tagname akvbcfc).
