Cardiff City Ask Premier League To Void Crystal Palace Defeat Over Alleged ‘Team Leak’ Espionage

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Cardiff City v Crystal Palace - Cardiff City Stadium

Cardiff City have reportedly written to the Premier League to formally request that their defeat against Crystal Palace from earlier this month be voided entirely on the grounds of ESPIONAGE.

BBC Sport are claiming to have seen the five-page letter, sent to the Premier League by Cardiff’s legal team, which kindly requests that the 3-0 loss against Palace on April 5th be struck from the record books on account of Palace’s sporting director Iain Moody (who was sacked by Cardiff in October last year, only to be snapped up by Palace the following month) successfully obtaining The Bluebirds’ starting line-up for the game beforehand.

According to the Beeb, Cardiff have called the integrity of the match into question and also alleged that Palace manager Tony Pulis was aware that Moody was attempting to pilfer details of Cardiff’s team before that game in question.

The Premier League have already confirmed that they are investigating Cardiff’s claims.

The plot…thickens.

    I was delighted when we got promoted last season, but to be honest, between the kit change, the Tan thing, the ‘Tan Out’ thing, firing Mackay, firing Moody, hiring some 24 year old Uzbekistan with no experience to a whole other manner of crap that we’ve subjected the premiership audience to…plus that we have played AWFUL football all season, I’m in a way looking forward to being back in the Championship with a small bit of anonymity.

    who gives a shit wither Palace knew our first XI or not… we re crap & we know we re down
    end of story
    Same old England Always Cheating!

  3. Tom the Bees fan says:

    This is such rubbish – clearly its just tan whos got in for moody. what difference would have made anyway Cardiff are getting relegated cos there crap and changed there manager half way through a season to someone who has no managerial experience in the English leagues.

  4. Desperate Cardiff says:

    Clutching at straws. Cardiff are 19th from 33 games in the Prem and not the one defeat by Palace. Tan is a douche.
