Cardiff are being weird

Cardiff City lost to Crystal Palace last week and instead of accepting defeat graciously like most other relegation threatened clubs taking on Tony Pulis teams, they've decided that the result should not stand because the team sheet was leaked the day before.

The club allege that Palace knew the starting line up before the game even started.  Scandalous I know.  The BBC say:
The document, sent by club lawyers to the Premier League, alleges Palace boss Tony Pulis knew sporting director Iain Moody was trying to obtain Cardiff's starting line-up before the game.
The club claims it has proof Moody succeeded and says this breaches league rules. Pulis declined to comment when contacted by the BBC, although Palace previously denied the claims.
Even if this is true, which it probably isn't, what fucking difference would it make?  Cardiff are utterly shite, one of the worst teams I've seen play in the Premier League and Solskjaer barely seems to have a clue what's going on.  How on earth Pulis could possibly have known that they'd line up in almost the exact same way that they had done for the other 32 games is beyond me.  Only a detective or expensive spy could have figured it out.  Yes that must be the answer
