Man City’s website claimed they beat Man Utd for Community Shield

It was going so perfectly for Man City. Up 2-0 on Man United at halftime of the Community Shield match with goals from Jolean Lescott and Edin Dzeko, and Man United's young new goalkeeper, David De Gea, looking shaky. Then, everything fell apart. First Chris Smalling scored in the 52nd minute to make it 2-1, then Nani completed a series of passes that Man United might've learned from Barca last May to equalize, and finally, well into Fergie Time, he scored again on a defensive meltdown to win.

Going from a sure win to losing in added time is never easy to take, especially when it happens against your biggest rival at Wembley. So, while they were still in the midst of trying to comprehend this defeat, Man City updated their official website with a match report that included one tiny change that, whether accidentally or purposefully, made it a little easier for its fans to read.

"Man Utd 2 City 3," boasted the text at the top of the report, with a bit of wishful thinking that credited Smalling and Nani as scoring for City while Dzeko and Lescott were attributed to Man United. It was eventually changed to reflect the more accurate information in the body of the report, though.

No typographical errors could change this image, though...


Photoshop, however, could do wonders with it.
