Doesnt sound like we played the best, probably a typical blues show against lower league opposition! Fair play to Brentford, but atleast were through thats the most important thing! Last 8 of this competition, really good opportunity for us to go to Wembley aslong as we can avoid an awkward tie in the next round! Just hope some of the players havent knackered themselves out for the derby on sunday after playin 90mins + extra time!

Bees fan at peace
good game and I think premier fitness showed through. We were all flagging at the end. Christ knows how we are going to perform next game after that. I was sure we were going to nick it, but thats football. Onto the next round. The Bees are a bloody good side and I hope we get the success we deserve and be up there with you guys in the premiership. Good luck Blues.

Blues were value for money, however, hitting the net IS the thornein their side. fair play to Brentford though, they took their chance and made a game of it. great Support too.

Fair play to Brentford they came down in numbers and their team put on a good show, it reminded me of blues in the 90's when we'd do the same...we always ended up losing too lol. Could have done without the extra time with Sunday's game looming though.

Best value for money I've ever had at the Blues I reckon smiley

First half I thought we looked good, O'connor's well timed runs trying to beat The Bees off side trap etc

Second half not so good.

And I thought extra time was another good/bad half performance

Redman's good to watch. Towards the game he looked A bit isolated stood out on the wing though

As mentioned, Bowyer had A poor game, the penalty just about summed it up.

Couple of good saves from Taylor

I couldn't believe it when I saw people leaving with minutes to go, they need more practice at watching Blues smiley

You could see immediately that the equaliser knocked the stuffing out of the Brentford players, and fans alike. They were quite noisy up until then. And as mentioned above, they looked out on their feet for the extra time period

I always remember Brentford as our big opponents back in the day, always A good day out & choice of pubs when you go there as well

Good entertainment IMO smiley

Possibly, the worst spelling I've seen.


I'd like either Ipswich, West Brom or Villa at SA next round!

Glad we're through - but I think we need to up our game slightly for the next round. Quite poor in the second half, thank goodness for the late Kevin Phillips (Bong) show. Was listening to the penalty shoot-out on 5Live in the car somewhere down the M1... goodness those penalties were tense. Relieved we squeezed through.

We're in, but, as any Birmingham City fan for more than a couple of years will know - we never do it the easy way. XD

No BlueNoseBasil.
Still alive, but only just with the worry of those penalites.
good luck in the next round. if you ever get the Bees away you're all welcome in the pub. One on each corner of the ground y'know. (hic)
Cheers ( at peace...and not annoyed at birmingham anymore winkeye

Whoever said that Bowyer played OK must have been watching a different game to the rest of us. He was absolutely awful and that performance was reflected by his penalty.
