Cardiff Shock Manchester United at Old Trafford

The Theater of Dreams is more like Nightmare on Sir Matt Busby Way right now.

With no Top Four chances whatsoever, Manchester United allegedly tried to honor their supporters who attended the season's finale against relegated Cardiff City.

However, wet bedsheets wasn't the sorta tribute anyone expected.

The afternoon's outcome was a disastrous 2-0 defeat to the feisty Bluebirds, who made the most outta their last sniff of Premiership payouts.


United almost looked like they cared in the early going.

Youngster Mason Greenwood was given a Premiership debut by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and had his chances to open his account.


However, in the 23rd minute, Diogo Dalot fouled Nathaniel Mendez-Laing in the no-fly zone.

Dude stepped to the spot and then beat David de Gea:


So, did United rise to the occasion and put this relegated Welsh side back in its place?


Not that they didn't have a few opportunities in the second half, but frankly, who doesn't in this league?

So, it was Cardiff who did damage once again.

In the 54th minute, Scott McTominay failed to clear a throw-in, of all things, as Josh Murphy got into the box and fed an unmarked Mendez-Laing, who tapped in:



Full marks to the Bluebirds, then, for going out with a shout.

They, along with Huddersfield and Fulham, will be replaced by Norwich City, Sheffield United, both of whom have had their runs in the top tier previously. Obviously, a playoff determines the third nominee.

As to the Red Devils, dudes need lotsa fixing.
