And it wasn't just some random game, people. We're talking about an FA cup quarter-final berth here, for goodness sakes!
It's total madness, I tell you. How the hell did Birm give away a freekick, and let Sami Hyypia—Liverpool's centre-back—head one home after only 54 seconds of game?
As if that's not mistery enough, the guys in blue allowed their goal deficit to double just over three minutes later.
And the rest, as they say, is history. One that's complete with an own goal at that.
For serious, were the Birm defenders even present at all? SEVEN-effing-ZERO surely doesn't suggest so, innit.
I'd kill myself if I were the manager, I kid you not. That is, if someone else doesn't beat me to it.
"Indeed, such was the misery of this thumping defeat that come the end Steve Bruce and not the Birmingham defence was most in need of protection. The Birmingham manager, sheltered by a significant police presence for virtually the entire second half, suffered the ignominy of an irate fan running in his direction before the interval. The supporter was belatedly stopped in his tracks though Liverpool most certainly were not." -- http://football.guardian.co.uk/
