Definately not! at least we accept defeat with grace & eat humble pie when our team gets slaughtered!
Birmingham deserved the win totally, they dug in, showed great team spirit, played really well, dominated the game and totally hammered the Toon!
Birmingham deserved the win without any doubts, and hopefully the shocking defending from NUFC that was on display at St James Park should promt some quality defensive signings.
In saying all that though, it could have been worse, it could have been Notts County booting us out of the Cup! I wonder who that could have happened too now? (even if it was the Carling Cup)
You never know, Boro might get Birmingham and get wellied too! It would be nice. ;o)

Fair play Geordie bloke, you took it on the chin.
Cup games are always a roll of the dice and lower clubs usually do up their game.
Boro have Bristol city away in the next round and thats gonna be a tough one.
I hope for your sakes the Toon get a replacement for Fat Freddy along with a few defenders.
