FACT: When Eddie Johnson scored his first Cardiff City goal in the 3-0 win over Doncaster Rovers at Ninian Park, the resultant cheer from the crowd was so loud it was picked up by the British Geological Survey as a magnitude of 3.0 on the Richter scale, making it officially an earthquake.
Professor Denzil Arcecrack of the BGS said “Our Welsh headquarters are located in Bridgend, around 25 miles from the stadium itself. I was working that evening and I heard the noise from my window, the instruments were going crazy. I turned to my colleague and said “what the f**king f**k was that”? We never dreamed it was a goal celebration, but when we found out who had scored, it all started to make sense”.
According to the late Norris McWhirter of the Guinness book of world recorded, this still remains the only time a celebration at a sporting event has caused seismic activity anywhere in the whole wide world.
Now that is the kind of fact this thread was made for, good work sir.In 1955-56 Cardiff were drawn to play away to Leeds in the FA Cup Third Round. (28th tie out of the hat)
In 1956-57 Cardiff were drawn to play away to Leeds in the FA Cup Third Round. (29th tie out of the hat)
In 1957-58 Cardiff were drawn to play away to Leeds in the FA Cup Third Round. (26th tie out of the hat)
What makes this even more crazy is that Cardiff won each of the ties 2-1.
