Ten years ago today, the most amazing yet heartbreaking day I’ve ever endured as a football fan, and I’m glad we’ve managed to do it the ‘easy’ way twice since then!
Both sets of fans were awesome, not a hint of trouble and so, so loud, Iwan Roberts says he spoke to the groundsman at the Millenium Stadium a few years later, he told him it was the best atmosphere of all the games to be played there while Wembley was being built.
As a life long Norwich fan although i might seem byast i think the beter side lost on the day the norwich suporters travelled around twice as far to be there and to thse of us that were there there was cleary more off us dispite being a much smaller city. The hi lights only show only show a few of the chances, i think if the penaulties had been at the other end it would have been a different story. great memories though i would wish birmingham luck this year but mother in law is a west ham fan
Thanks for posting this. Even as a Norwich fan, I say this day was one worth remembering. Of course I was disappointed, but it was a great day out–my first time at the Millennium Stadium–a great occasion, and a good game.
My lasting memory though is of my lil brother–who lives in cardiff–taking us to the stadium through the BC fans. Having ‘Who are you?’ chanted toyou by about ten thousand Birmingham fans is one of those things that tend to stick in your memory. >_<;;
before i thought I would never see blues in premiership in my life then this game- still sends me to seventh heaven. I remember on the floor praying when penalty shoot out, couldn’t look.Then my whole house errupted when won.My cousin came bursting in the house, did a lap of honour round the coffee table and then ran straight down the street. My sister phoned me from London screeming down the phone. keep right on!
