It was a great performance, arguably one of the best we had all of that season.

Just a shame we couldn’t see more of that more often, otherwise we’d have had a better chance of staying up at the end of it, but alas it wasn’t to be.

Oh well, at least we can still reminisce about it with a slight tinge of happiness attached to it.

I’m talking of course about Mauro Zarate’s display against Manchester City back during the latter stages of the 2007/08 season, as he scored twice to give us a 3-1 victory over the Citizens, despite the fact we were down to ten men for the last half an hour or so.

Was Zarate a good player for us overall?





The Birmingham City social media team put out highlights of the game from that day and it led to a lot of responses from the fans about not only that game in particular, but the entirety of his very short career at St Andrew’s, and what might have been if he’d have just stayed a little longer.

What about you? What are your thoughts on Zarate?
