I think he might go down as one of the few players to make the trip across the Second City and still be revered by the Blue fans.

Scott Hogan’s already made a good start, but whether or not he reaches the heights that this man achieves, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Former Birmingham City player Liam Ridgewell announced his retirement over the weekend at the age of 35. The defender played 175 times for the Blues across a four and a half year period, scoring 11 goals before being sold in January 2012 to fellow Midlands side West Bromwich Albion.

And whilst none of his goals might go down in Blues history, there is one particular thing that will always keep him in the hearts of the fans, and that was his part in the Blues’ Carling Cup run back in 2011.

And that memory certainly was prominent in a lot of fan’s minds as they wished him the best following his announcement.

Will the 2011 Cup win ever be topped?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The question is, does his part in that cup run totally outweigh the fact he was part of two relegations in 2008 and 2011?
