Ya, I was checking the results over in Germany last week and there were alot of crazy results, makes it all the more exciting though......
What did you make of Ozils performance? I thought he did well and looked dangerous/Khedira did ok also but Ozil shone for me.

Didn't see it but I gather an off-colour Liverpool but in-form Reina means 0-0 and a 7th draw in a row between them and Birmingham! :eeko: Roll on MOTD2 later....

Was going to create a new thread for this but thought it should go in this one.
When Kostas came to England for some Kick Off games we spent a few hours chatting about life and in particular football. What was great was informing him of my team Birmingham City and it's rivalry with Aston Villa, how partiular games meant so much (when watching a DVD of a season review) and generally highlighting some favourite moments of the mighty Blues. Plus with the recent Forest clips in the other thread I figured why not have an area for us to post YouTube clips of our teams best bits?
Could be quite educational too. Here's a few of my favourite clips from B'ham City

1991 - Leyland Daf Cup Final. This was a domestic cup for teams in the lower reaches of the Football League but nevertheless, under manager Lou Macari who would leave us for in acromonious circumstances weeks after, it was our first visit to wembley in years (possibly ever?) and showed the entire UK what they'r all about - with over 60,000 fans turning up at Wembley. The fact John Gayle scored two belters was the icing on the cake.


1993 - Being a B'ham fan you cant help but accept defeats - because there's been so sodding many - so hats off to Swindon in this game. I was actually there on the day sitting behind the goal on the right hand side and at Half time we were 4-1 up and coasting. Then Glenn Hoddle, player manager at Swindon at the time, moved into midfield from his customary sweepers role and they won 6-4. Whilst walking out I saw an old man crying over what he'd witnessed - you'v have thought he'd be used to it by now! Memorable all the same


2003(?) - After watching the Premier League on TV for years, Birmingham City had finally made it. We'v been relegated and promoted since but nothing will beat your first time you make it and this video sums it all up: (beat Milwall in the semi final and the won on Penalties in the Play Off final against Norwich City to reach the promised land.


2003(?) - Ridiculed by Aston Villa fans by eons, Birmingham were back in the big time but these games never went our way - at least in my life time. A massive Derby - one of the biggest in England and not only would Birmingham win, they'd do it in such memorable fashion with a new goal to add to the library - 'The Enkelman'


2004(?) - This was the return leg and Villas chance for revenge, but if Birmingham were in paradise after the first time, they were in heaven when they did the double. Prompting Blues fans to sing 'Hawaii Five-0' after winning 5-0 on aggregate.

This is the perfect place for that trip down memory lane mate! As mentioned in the clip, the fan passion is just perfect in that last video! :lol:

After 6 straight defeats I was relieved that yesterday's derby finished honours even! Phew!

What about Nani's goal against Tottenham. Even Fisher hasn't done that!!!

Definitely Steve - we got lucky for sure. We didn't so much play "lockout" but certainly got a fantastic Fisher performance by Foster! It certainly keeps things open at the top of the table...

I haven't had much incentive to post in this thread as it's been a terrible year for AEK so far. However, this week was heavenly! A victory against the hated slime Olympiakos on Saturday, followed by a triumph tonight in Croatia versus Hajduk Split for Europa League. We now need a point in the final match against the amazing but already through Zenit at home to qualify to the next round:

1. Zenit 15
2. AEK 7
3. Anderlecht 4
4. Hajduk Split 3

I was in the Olympic Stadium with a mate in the game against the red scum:

Not only have the Blues made it to the League Cup Semi-Final, but we get on over the old enemy too!

Birmingham 2 - 1 Aston Villa

Get in there! :gban: :gban: :gban:

Looking forward to the match report, Evil! :)

Yeah, it's such a shame that the idiots have to go and spoil things, especially with the flare business. :eeko: :( I haven't heard any details yet, and your clip is the most I've seen. Although this doesn't justify any of it, I'd like to think the vast majority of those invading the pitch were simply jubilant following victory, wanting to taunt the opposition, as fans do all game. I hope it doesn't get blown out of proportion, though it probably will, especially with the WC bids going on.

Odd that Rodolfo hasn't written about Madrid's latest match vs Barcelona on Monday. :) I watched the games via the internets and it must have been painful for Real fans - absolutely no chance, another amazing performance by Barcelona. 5-0, throughly deserved, beautiful to watch.

I obviously did not want to talk about it, but never mind :) .
It was the end of the world. Terrible, horrifying. An atrocious failure by Mourinho, who was bought to fight and win these very battles; we were already good enough beating Valladolid or Málaga without him. Now the league championship seems lost unless we are 4 points ahead of FCB in our next league match, Real - FCB, which will happen in april, because we can not count on beating this team, no matter how. It sadly seems that FCB will reign until they age and collapse by themselves. Or until their plane crashes.
