No club appreciates the enthusiasm of its supporters more than Manchester City but after watching their hopes of an FA Cup run burst by struggling Sheffield United yesterday they will rather wish the 7,000 who travelled across the Pennines had chosen a different way to show their allegiance, given the bizarre circumstances of the home side's opening goal.
