11 brilliant photos from Aston Villa’s memorable derby day win at Birmingham City in 2009

We’ve taken a look back over Villa’s 1-0 away win against Blues in 2009, because you can’t beat a second city derby victory, can you?

From an FA Cup final to European clashes and relegation battle woes, supporting Aston Villa in the early 2000s was a rollercoaster experience, to say the least.

There were plenty of highs and lows for fans of all ages as some time was spent near the top of the Premier League table and other periods right near the bottom.

Managers enjoyed far more longevity than what is seen in the modern day, with just four head coaches taking to the helm at Villa Park between 1998 and 2010.

Villa have a prestihious history and are one of England’s most decorated clubs. This week, we’ve taken a look back over Villa’s 0-1 win against Blues at St Andrew’s in 2009, because you can’t quite beat a Second City Derby victory, can you?

Gabby Agbonlahor’s late goal 5 minutes from time gave the Villa faithful a special away day to remember 14 years ago.

Here are some great photos from the day.
