You have the misfortune of being a square...
the Blues are going up. Tan can kiss my arse.
Ahh, the days of Intifada, WTBF, The Thin Blue Line and playing in blue of course. Eddie May, Carl Dale, Phil Stant, Paul Millar erm ....Gareth Abrahams etc etc. The legends of yore.
Odd but I used to get so excited about going to Aldershot in the back of a van and now we are in the Premier League I'm surprised by just how little it means to me. I'm very pleased of course but I thought I'd be ecstatic. Maybe I've grown out of it - I think that has something to do with it - but the whole change of kit and badge and the way it's been handled has really put some distance between me and the club.
Blue kit back please. And bring back the old badge. The Bluebirds.
I did actually want to go last night, and missed it for the first time all season. It is pleasing to see more and more 'pro blue' stuff and great that Cardiff has a premier league team, but I must say it doesn't feel like Cardiff City for me.
I'm not fussed about it really. It's the economic benefits that I'm most interested in. I'm a huge football fan, so I'll follow the scores, may go to an odd game if offered a free ticket, but I feel like a Cardiff City fan temporarily suspended.
Now we are promoted, I can say with even more justification that the sooner Vincent Tan leaves the better.
Good spot Karl. Wasn't sure if anyone would get the reference
Walesonline announce there are plans afoot to increase the stadium capacity to almost 35,000 but it won't happen in time for the 2013/14 season as "procurement is likely to take up to a year".
I have it on good authority that this isn't quite true - work began on procurement almost a year ago but was halted when the stadium won the right to host the Bon Jovi concert in June. The concert orgnanisers didn't want the stadium to be part-building site during the concert, but the date couldnt be moved forwards or backwards a month because of Bon Jovi's schedule and the start of the football season.
So to all those fans complaining they can't get a ticket for next season in the Premier League, blame Bon Jovi!
No real news, but I was just amused by how badly written this walesonline report about cardiff city is. It tells us that cardiff city are planning two friendly matches against teams from Spain and Italy in August. What amuses me is that given the title, the subtitle, and the first five paragraphs, we are told basically the same information in seven different ways. It's as if they were having a game to work how many different ways the same information could be ordered in.
Anyway, as I say, not that important.
Someone's three favorite people!
"Cardiff City have renamed the Canton stand the Croeso stand as part of a sponsorship package with the Welsh Government.
The £110,000 deal will run from August 2013 to May 2014.
The Welsh Government says it will also purchase TV advertising time with Sky Sports during live Cardiff City games.
The Welsh Government has had an ongoing sponsorship investment with Swansea City since the team was promoted to the Premier League in 2011.
It says the aim of the new deal is to promote Wales to a worldwide audience."
who is that rather large woman who has obviously never seen the inside of a gym let alone a football ground?
