    The Worst Fan Reaction From Tottenham’s 6-0 Loss To Man City – Plus Moyes’s Cardiff Pains

    Cardiff City earned themselves a well-deserved 2-2 draw against Man United last night, after creating a slew of chances that led to a goal from a set-piece.

    In the first half, their strikers were pressured well by United’s defenders, often seeing their efforts volley over the goalpost, but their fans stuck to their guns and believed in the boys till the very end. As they say, when in Cardiff… beware!

    Granted, Moyes was a little annoyed that Gary Medel had gotten away scot-free, even appearing to “slap Marouane Fellaini” across the face without any resulting action from the referee. But that’s football for you – not everybody gets the outcome they want.

    “I am disappointed. Like Southampton, we had it under control with a minute to go but we conceded from a set piece and it cost us,” said United coach David Moyes after the match. “If you slap someone in the face then you would expect some action to be taken. We actually lost our concentration as the referee gave them a talking to. It gave them two bites at the cherry because they had already delivered the first ball,” added Moyes.

    Later, Cardiff coach Malky Mackay said : “I take the work ethic as a given, but what I loved more about the team today was the belief to play at this level, to work their way up the pitch with the ball. That is the confidence that they are showing, and I know they’ve got it, to compete at this level and to compete well.”

    United now lie sixth in the Premiership standings with 21 points from 12 matches.

    And here’s the ultimate fan reaction from Tottenham’s 0-6 loss to Manchester City last night – a travelling fan sitting by himself at the Etihad stadium after the game : Painful! Andres-Villas Boas even went so far as to describe the loss as “Extremely embarrassing – The worst defeat for everyone at Tottenham.”

    After that result, City have now (dazzlingly!) scored 26 times in six games on their own ground. Amazing stuff, considering the fact that they actually lost four times in away matches.
