...which one would it be?

In my lifetime, probably the defeat at Fulham in 2008. A win there would have kept us up, would have stopped all the subsequent oppoborium flying at G&S that ended up with them flogging the club to Yeung and I think we would have (relatively speaking) thrived from thereon.

Spurs 2011, would have needed a minor miracle with the wolves game mind, but Europe the following year with Prem money and pulling power would have been something

We could always have still lost the final vs. West Ham y'know...

We would have slaughtered them

The 1975 semi result changed the trajectory of our whole club, we were ahead of the times.

It would have propelled us into the top tier, we would have been effing massive

Then I would probably change that result, but the Fulham game would have meant i get to see my beloved Birmingham as an 8 year old play at wembley.

Would we? That question refers to your first and third point.

I'm not being facetious here, this was way before my time.

Yeah, bankrupt Portsmouth who we beat three days later in the league. They got to the final and nearly beat Chelsea.

Remember us also losing to Sunderland as a kid, when we would have had Sheff Utd at home and Millwall in the semi on the way to playing against a relatively mediocre Man Utd side in the final.
