Cardiff waited over fifty years to see the return of top-flight football, and lost out on Premier League promotion three consecutive years before making the jump last season. On Sunday all that patience finally paid off as Cardiff notched its first ever BPL win, and it just so happened that it came against one of the favorites for the Premier League title: Manchester City.
After Edin Dzeko scored a wonderful strike to hand City the lead at the start of the second half, the newly-promoted Welsh side scored three unanswered goals, two by Fraizer Campbell - to secure the famous victory.
Afterwards, the home fans celebrated the win the only way they knew how, by singing along extra loud to “Three Little Birds” by Bob Marley. The song is an homage to the club’s alias as the Bluebirds, despite new club owner Vincent Tan controversially changing the team’s colors from blue to red and adding a giant red dragon to the team’s crest last summer.
