He gave us some great moments certainly.
But I don’t think he, or indeed any Birmingham City player ever gave us a full 90-minute display quite like this one though.
I’m talking of course about Nikola Zigic and his four-goal display against Leeds United back in 2012, including a hat trick that only took him seven minutes to complete. The club decided to throw back to it over the weekend by asking fans who were the four players who assisted him for each of his goals.
Who has been the better player for Birmingham?
And whilst some took the opportunity to actually try and answer the question, a lot of other used it as a chance to talk about the big Serbian’s life and times at St Andrew’s, with many talking about just how important he was to the club at that time.
He might not have been the most prolific but he sure did score some important goals in our recent history.

I loved Ziggy, I know he took some stick, but he brought us good times as well, including 2 trophies. 🏆🏆

What about you? What were your abiding memories of Zigic in B9? Was this game the standout, or does something else take precedent over this?
