Arsene Wengers ignorance has cost arsenal this trophy IMO, everyone and i mean everyone bar him can see the gunners needed a new GK and look what has happed here, would Shay Given hav dropped that ball, not a chance.

Well done to blues deservd it tonight best team on the day, down side is not hearing the last of it, lets hope they get relegated and we stay up :-)

I'm actually pretty pleased for them. The reaction from the players was great to see. Especially when you remember the indifference from the Man United players and fans last year.

Well done to the blues, good set of fans.

Plus anything that enrages villa is good for me.

Fair play to blues. I just wish one day i will be able to experience something like that. Hopefully this could be a blessing in disguise i mean they seem to have picked up quite a few knocks today so........... ;)

I am pleased for the Blues, yes they have some who get carried away but so do we, the blues fans i know are quite happy to take the pee out themselves, my mate who text me who is there just said 'carling cup and relegation in one season, its got to happen to the blues!'

Nice to see a different team to win it and i think in the west midlands there fans are the most similar to ours, in general they seem to wish us well and i do them too.

I hope they enjoy the celebrations and attention they get, i know we would! Also makes me a bit 'what if' had we put a proper team out at Ipswich and gone for it, could of been us.

I would hope next sat is a bit of a hangover for them, think if we got an early goal will pee of their parade because the start of the game they will be buzzing.

Exactly. Birmingham have shown that if lesser sides take it seriously then they can win the Carling Cup. Sadly, RDM didn't see it this way and fielded a weaker side at Ipswich, when we had a good chance of going far in a cup competition.

As a result, Birmingham now have a recent trophy to their name and European football to look forward to.

Im chuffed for Blues to be honest, all the other results this weekend have pretty much gone against us and some may argue that this is not good going into our match next week but im genuinely happy for them, nice to see a midlands team do it as long as its not Villa or Wolves and we are seeing some very bitter Villa fans which is not a familar site  ;D

Fair play to them, Villa fans extremely bitter over this. According to many Vile fans the Carling Cup means nothing? Think back 12 months, remember all the Villa fans crying over the Vidic non-sending off?! Well done to the Blues. SOTV!

Can't say I'm bothered about who won to be honest but fair play to them it was a very entertaining final and pretty much deserved.

Bit out of order I thought when Barry Ferguson ran past when they scored and started patting Kosielny (sp) on the head. No need IMO.

I seem to remember being told by a bluenose that when we survived on the last game in the great escape season it was announced over the tannoy at St Andrews and was met with spontaneous and widespread applause.......so..........fairs fair....... well done Blues.

Being the curious person that I am I had a quick peek on Viletalk to see their reaction. People wishing terminal illness on David Gold of all people. What a lovely bunch they really are.

"You've only won one cup" :P

Damn, the one cup thing was a great line to cut a Bluenose back down to size.

Now they've won a trophy in recent years.

We are fast becoming the smallest club in the WM.

I have to admit I wanted Arsenal to win today, to pick something up for the great football they play, a reward for playing good stuff.  A Premiership without Wenger/ Wenger's Arsenal, will be a much, much, poorer one, in my opinion.
