What a relief that Birmingham were not robbed by a truly disgraceful offside decision that saved Arsenal from going down to 10 men, and a goal behind, inside the first 5 minutes of the game. It was a real choker to lose to Birmingham in the semifinal but you have to say that their performance today was superb. They took the game to Arsenal and thoroughly deserved their victory.
And at the heart of it all was a certain Stephen Carr who, a few seasons back, turned up at the Boleyn for a trial having been released on a free. We decided not to sign him! Carr or Faubert? Hmmmm tricky choice that one!
Oh, and a certain Lee Bowyer should have won that penalty. Remind me, why didn't Zola fancy him?
Mind you, Birmingham were carrying a few knocks by the end of the game. They are not out of the relegation woods yet and this victory could yet come at a huge cost!
