ARSENAL FC VS BIRMINGHAM CITY
Sunday 27th February 2011
Carling Cup Final
16:00


AN ARSENAL FANS VIEW
A final for Arsenal at last! Lol the last time Arsenal were in a CC Final was 2007 vs Chelsea the young guns took the lead through a then young Theo Walcott getting his first goal for the club unfourtnatly the game ended in defeat for Arsenal as two Drogba goals gave Chelsea a 2-1 Win. Recent PL form gives Arsenal the edge over the Birmimgham oponets but that means nothing in a cup match and its who performs better on the day. Hope its the gunners celebrating a full time and a first trophy since 2005. Mon the gunners !

BIRMINGHAM CITY FANS VIEW
Its a day to remember on Sunday for the blue side of Birmingham, I being one of the fortunate ones to be going, cannot wait for it to be here! Our last major final being in Cardiff in 2001 against Liverpool losing out on penalties.Although the mentality of Blues fans throughout the years hasn't been about winning things, it can't be with one major trophy in our history that being in 1963!
Sunday for us is about Pride, our team are at Wembley, our heads can be held high as we "Keep Right On! We will turn up in our thousands, and not just in the stadium allocation of 31,453. Many fans were turned away before general sale of our allocation which is a great showing for us considering our average league attendance of recent seasons.

Fortunately for us our team is full of fighters, believers and have mixed well under Big Eck's guidance over the past 2 seasons, the likes of Stephen Carr, Roger Johnson, Liam Ridgewell, Barry Ferguson and Lee Bowyer have been inspirational in leading the team! If they are on top of their game maybe we can cause a few surprises come Sunday.
Playing a team such as Arsenal in a game like this makes things difficult from a prediction perspective, as they are clearly the better side on paper in terms of ability, however team spirit and hearts on sleeves i would say we are the better side. On the day will be a big factor. I am never one for betting against my team, so i will say it will be a hard fought game, we will win it late on by 1 goal.

The 27th of February for Birmingham City fans will never be forgotten that is for sure, whether it is for the day out in a final and showing our spirit as players and fans, or whether it is a moment of history collecting our second major honour is yet to be seen, all i know from my personal perspective it will be a fantastic day and nothing will ruin it for me, unless the referee does ;)


Keep Right On! C.O.Y.B! S.O.T.V! T.C.I.Y.J.F.O.D! :)

Thank god Calum did this compared to the other one.

anyhoo back on OT. Goin for a 2-1 Arsenal win. Birmingham will pretty much make it as awkward for Arsenal, but the Gunners quality will come through. Think it'll be a good game too
