“We gave our all and we were robbed but . . . .

By Annis Abraham

Everton 2 Cardiff City 1

Cardiff City gave their all today, Ole can be proud of his team, they can be proud as they matched Everton at Goodison Park and in my opinion we were robbed today of a precious point.

But once you are in that bottom three, I’ve always said nothing goes your way.

I don’t ever mention luck or complain about refs or luck etc. We could have had a penalty that looked 50/50 from the terraces but without a doubt with minutes to go we should have had a blatant corner, which would have put the pressure on Everton instead of us but a goal kick was given and the pressure was on us and within 2 minutes they had scored and we had lost 2-1.

I have to admit when it was 0-0 in the second half we were in with a shout of winning this game, then Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, made in my mind unusual substitutions, he took off Mutch and put on Whiitingham, then took off Craig Noone and put on Matts Daehli, I honestly could not understand why because we looked so comfortable.

And then unbelievably Everton took a 1-0 lead and I thought ‘what the hell have you done Ole! But credit to you your players came back and got an equaliser sending Cardiff fans into raptures and we looked comfortable right up until virtually the final whistle. To me we were robbed and many other fellow City fans said the same on the way out of Goodison Park.

The coach is silent going home but hey if we can produce this kind of performance against Liverpool next Saturday with a full house behind the Bluebirds you never know what could happen, all is not lost.
