“For the Premiership… the Premiership”.

With the possible exception of ‘though you’re tired and weary’, I don’t think there’s a greater set of five words that resound within the minds of Birmingham City fans than them, and with very good reason.

The club decided to dedicate yesterday’s ‘#MatchdayRewind’ to reliving the 2002 Division One (back in those days) play-off final between the Blues and Norwich City down in Cardiff. The Blues won by virtue of a penalty shootout, with Darren Carter taking the winning effort to send the Blues up and the fans into ecstasy.

What's your favourite final day memory?

So when the club finally got to that famous moment when Carter stuck the ball past Rob Green in front of tens of thousands of happy Bluenoses, there was always going to be plenty of emotion and reminiscing from the fans on social media as they looked back on how they felt at that special moment.

I miss those days back when we were near the top of the table, rather than constantly down the bottom.
