West Ham 0-3 Manchester City (agg 0-9) | League Cup semi-final 2nd leg

Sam Allardyce had mused after West Ham United’s Capital One Cup quarter-final win at Tottenham Hotspur, in the knowledge that it would be Manchester City next, that the competition’s format had a flaw. “It is a shame,” the West Ham manager said, “that the semi-final cannot be over one leg.” He suggested that West Ham might have a chance if that one-off tie were at Upton Park.

From the Observer archive, 10 January 1971: George Best and Bobby Moore – peas in a pod?

Both players made headlines for the wrong reasons, but the parallels end there Bobby Moore and George Best have so much in common, especially in a week when their crass misdemeanours have forced them to share embarrassing headlines, that many people will fail to identify the vast dissimilarities in their natures. This is a pity, for it can only encourage the gloating of those who are always anxious to tell us that professional footballers are uncouth louts who…

The only surprise, perhaps, was that Manchester City restricted themselves to six. The tie was so one-sided, the level of opposition so utterly abject, that there were moments when it was easy to imagine another seven-goal haul to emulate what happened against Norwich, never mind the six that Arsenal and Tottenham sieved inside this stadium. The fifth goal went in before the hour had even passed. After that, the goal machine that is Manuel…
