Birmingham in the Semi-Final
West Ham have drawn Birmingham in the semi-final of the Carling Cup. I was kind of hoping for Ipswich, I always look forward to a game against the Tractor Boys, but a semi-final against Birmingham looks winnable.
The first leg is at the Boleyn Ground in the week commencing 10 January 2011, with the second leg at St Andrew's following in the week commencing 24 January 2011. It's a shame it isn't the other way around. Having the home leg last I think gives a little advantage, but I have a feeling this could be the year that West Ham win the League Cup for the first time.
