The New Firms?

Now that Alex McLeish has been installed as Birmingham City's new manager, the accolades are coming in from all directions. Even across town at Villa Park where Martin O'Neill is looking forward to re-establishing the rivalry he and Alex McLeish had in Glasgow when they managed "Old Firms" Celtic and Rangers respectively. Already O'Neill is getting results at Villa Park with the team putting together 4 wins in a row and climbing to sixth in the Premiership. Could this be the beginning of an emergence of Birmingham as a major football force in the world?

I sure hope so!
