Fuck me, just look at the shots, 39 to 11, 19 vs 7 on target and corners, 19 vs 3 and that tells you all you need to know. Well done Cardiff, oh plucky Cardiff. But the trophy ended up in the right place.
Possession 65% in our favour too according to Sky Sports. Fuck Cardiff.
Another reason i've got little sympathy for them is their road to the final, take a look.
Round 1 - Beat Oxford United away 1-3 after extra time
Round 2 - Beat Huddersfield Town 5-3 after extra time
Round 3 - 2-2 vs Leicester after extra time, won 7-6 on pens
Round 4 - Beat Burnley 1-0
Quarter Final - Beat Blackburn 2-0
Semi Final - 1-1 on aggregate after extra time, won 3-1 on pens
Hardly been a tough ride for a team with Premier League aspirations, they seemed to have just plodded along with a bit of luck and found themselves in the latter stages. Biggest team they beat was Blackburn who couldn't give a toss about the competition given their current league standing.
