Seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady shared his delight with fans as Birmingham City scored a much-needed win on Tuesday night.
Koji Miyoshi’s 93rd-minute winner against Hull City put the Blues into the fourth round of the FA Cup and gave new boss Tony Mowbray his first win in charge at St Andrew’s.
The 2-1 triumph was Birmingham’s first win in eight attempts, and came as relief for fans and owners alike, with Brady taking to X — which now features the future NFL Hall of Famer in a Blues shirt — at the final whistle to hail the result.
Winning seven Super Bowls must feel comparatively easy compared to the task of owning a club in one of football’s most unforgiving and relentless leagues.
It’s certainly been a tough introduction for Brady and the ownership group that took charge at St Andrew’s in the summer. Their decision to replace popular manager Jon Eustace with Wayne Rooney grabbed headlines but backfired spectacularly as the Blues slid from play-off contention to a relegation battle – before the Manchester United legend was dismissed after just 87 days.
Brady and the board have appointed the steady hand of Mowbray to steer them clear of the trapdoor.
