12 photos from Birmingham City’s 2011 League Cup victory over Arsenal


Whether you were at Wembley or watching from afar, I bet you can remember exactly where you were when that Obafemi Martins strike hit the back of the net.

With just a minute to play in the Carling Cup final, Martins prodded home what turned out to be the winner against Arsenal to send Blues fans into ecstasy.

February 27th just gone marked 11 years since Birmingham City’s incredible cup triumph and for how rubbish the decade or so that has followed has been, nothing can ever take that moment away from fans of the Blues.

On a day that is labelled ‘Obafemi Martins day’ by most, including Birmingham’s official Twitter feed - it’s a memory that can’t help but put a smile on your face.

So, to cheer up what has been a pretty dismal 2022 to date on and off the field, we’ve dug into the archives to find 12 photos of the day including some great snaps of the fans inside Wembley stadium.

If you can spot yourself or someone you know, send it them over and put a smile (or a traumatised look) on their face this Monday.
