Neville, Ramsey & more: Twitter reacts as Cardiff hold Man United
Gary Neville and Aaron Ramsey both tweet their thoughts after Cardiff City net a late equaliser to secure a 2-2 draw with Man United
Substitute Kim Bo-Kyung netted a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser as Cardiff held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw on Sunday.
Frazier Campbell had cancelled out Wayne Rooney’s early opener before United captain Patrice Evra restored the Red Devils’ lead, however, Kim headed Peter Whittingham’s free-kick past David De Gea to secure a valuable point.
Here is a selection of our favourite Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order as the Bluebirds deny Untied a much-needed win.
Former Manchester City midfielder Dietmar Hamann (@DietmarHamann) can’t understand how Rooney has escaped punishment: “Wes Brown sent off for nothing, Rooney yellow carded for assault. What is going on Mike Riley? Wouldn’t like to see his phone bill next week.”
United legend Edwin van der Sar (@vdsar1970) has a change in mood after Rooney’s opener: “Feeling annoyed… He is feeling better now…. Not sure about the others on and off the pitch!!”
Arsenal midfielder and former Cardiff City star Aaron Ramsey (@aaronramsey) is thrilled to see Campbell equalise for the Bluesbirds: “Great goal… game on.”
QPR midfielder Joey Barton (@Joey7Barton) isn’t impressed by the current Red Devils crop – and feels they miss injured Michael Carrick: “Easily the worst Man United side in Premiership history this. Don’t think they have ever been this weak in middle of the park. Shows how important Carrick is…”
Arsenal legend David Seaman (@thedavidseaman) hails the man who scored THAT iconic FA Cup goal past him in 1999: “Giggs is a world-class player!!! #respect!!”
Former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) is clearly shocked that United have fallen foul of their own trademark last-gasp winner: “Things really are very different this season.”
Doncaster Rovers forward and United fan David Cotterill (@cotterill_david) is underwhelmed by the current United side: “Worst Manchester United team that I’ve ever seen. Still haven’t replaced Scholes. Carrick massive miss to United.”
More from Hamann (@DietmarHamann) is having a right referee griping session: “Anybody who thinks a player who boots another player off the ball shouldn’t be sent off need their head testing. Justice in the end #Kim”
Former United defender Viv Anderson (@Anderson_Viv) felt Cardiff merited a point: “Probably a fair result overall, shame we couldn’t keep their last threatening free kick out though. #MUFC”
Ex-Cardiff man Ramsey (@aaronramsey) is delighted with the result – for two obvious reasons: “Great effort from Cardiff, deserved something from that.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) urges Rooney to see reason this January: “Hate to see you suffering like this Shrek @WayneRooney – you know what to do in January.”
United legend Gary Neville (@GNev2) reckons his former team-mates didn’t do enough to seal maximum points: “Well an exciting game. Cardiff deserved a point/United didn’t get their game going and were battling their way through the game!”
Cardiff full-back Kevin Theophile (@KevinTheophile) has that “special feeling”: “One point in Premier League vs Man United at home is always “SPECIAL”- Team effort/Many thanks to all the Bluebirds fans – Feels good.”
