FT

Cardiff 3-2 Man City
0-1 Dzeko 52’
1-1 Gunnarsson 60'
2-1 Campbell 79’
3-1 Campbell 87’
3-2 Negredo 90’

What a win for Cardiff and the first shock result of the season!

Frazer Campbell was excellent for the home side and was my man of the match.

It looks like Pablo Zabaleta was responsible for at least 2 of the Welsh teams goals which is unusually poor from him.

Any comments on todays surprise result and did the Bluebirds deserve it?

That's gonna damage City's chances of winning the League. As things stand, Chelsea are strongest. If Chelsea beat United tomorrow, they'll have 9 points and it wont be easy to knock them off the podium. All that money spent and they couldn't dispose of Cardiff.

Well I've not seen the highlights yet, but I hear Cardiff deserved the win. It is too soon to be writing off City's title chances, as Chelsea, Man Utd et al will lose at least one or two games this season. It is a shame we don't have any 'Citeh' fans on the forum, as I'd like to express my feelings about the game to them.....

THis is a shocker and pretty much an indication of why the premiership is the best in the world!
Anyway. I have been listening to commentators consistently show admiration for Zabaleta and i honestly couldn't understand what all the hoopla was about. Yes he was an hard working defender ,but it's those two words that the old guard of England seem to hold in the highest regard in all description of what they believe is most important on the pitch , no nonsense"!
Well he was full of nonsense today and was totally exposed for the average player he is defensively!
I thought the kid Kim was very good for Cardiff today ,but as usual for an Asian/Oriental player ,couldn't get enough of the ball form his teammates! At points in that game he made the leagues best player over the last 4 years Yaya Toure look like a mug out there! Showed an intricacy with the dribble that reminds me of Hleb in his prime and a desire when he got the ball on the run that showed a lot of confidence in his ability. Big game for Campbell though ,put himself about ,but went down far too easy for me though. Between him and Townsend of Spurs i don't know who won the best scuba award this weekend.
Great result for the league though show the competitive superiority throughout the league,even though it may yet again be detrimental to our champions league exploits.

City were pretty much hapless in defence ,wouldn't be surprised if they
recruited some new blood at the back ,all credit to Cardiff though, their
players obviously a shed load more motivated than Cities.

Frazier Campbell was a sure bet given his leanings towards United
to be moved to impress against United's sternest adversaries ,I'm
guessing he will be no less a thorn when Cardiff play the reds.
