Off to a Good Start!

This is hardly next day reporting as I am referring to last Sunday's game between Birmingham City and Tottenham Hotspur. I managed to catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day in my hotel room at Birmingham Airport, en route to Africa. Those who follow the Blues will know that this was Alex McLeish's first game as manager and there is no doubt that he started off extremely well, winning 3-2 away from home. The game had some great moments though City did have a bit of luck to come away with all three points. The winning goal was scored in injury time and it was a 30+ yard screamer into the top corner of the net. And the newspaper's photo of the ball entering the goal was a beauty!
