Might as well get in early with this thread
Not a good start , the only silver lining is we are not bottom of the table!
Anyone know who is bottom?
Better start eating this thread Zach!
Not only did City get a win, they achieved a spectacular win. BBC website headline "Superb Cardiff Stun Man City".
Now let's not get carried away because this is going to be a bloody tough year but the spirit and fortitude that City displayed today was enough to bring tears to the eyes of any true fan. Personally I have not seen anything as exciting since their magnificent performance against Liverpool at Wembley in 2012 - that match ended in the narrowest possible defeat for City but the tenacity shown then was in evidence today and delivered against all the odds. This is so so exciting.
So as a certain Prime Minister once said "Just rejoice at that news and be thankful for it....rejoice....rejoice!"
Cardiff 11th after 6 matches
Man Utd 12th after 6 matches
Does not compute....does not compute...
This can't be happening, this thread must not be allowed to fail.
As a Gooner from Cardiff I'm so proud of City, I hope they win quite a few more (except at The Emirates or Arsenal at home)
I know it's early days but they're beating good teams
The relative stability at CCFC couldn't last forever and it looks like Vincent Tan's circus is in full swing again. With the suspension of Malky's recruitment coach and his replacement with a (alleged) family friend the question now is how will our manager react? Even if there was a genuine good reason behind the removal of Iain Moody, his replacement by a random from Kazakhstan is just bizarre. If Malky were to leave we really would be in the sh*t and Vinnie would only have himself to blame.
Having a think about the latest problems going on at CCFC, re the appointment of 23-year-old Kazakhstani Alisher Apsalyamov.
Two questions spring to mind? Since Kazakhstan is not in the EU then he would need a valid work permit, but this would require his employer to demonstrate that the role could not be filled from within the EU.
Since he has no footballing Scout experience and he was doing painting jobs last year how have they got around this one?
A little question on the way to UK Border Agency me thinks.
I'm off to the pub to lubricate my vocal chords. For me its just another game but I really do hope we smash those six fingered sister shaggging inbred caravan dwelling peg selling pikey tramps.
What with some proper sport next weekend it's a nice touch from those soccer league chaps to schedule an half decent hors'derve, like.
Come on Cardiff.
........then why not say, "Adar Gleision"?
They do say the best means of defence is attack!!
Not being one of his followers, I couldn't possibly say but I think if you research it properly, you might just find the theory was in use many years before his birth!
Well done, Cardiff!! 2 - 2 draw against Man Utd!!!!
Would Cardiff football fans say that the season thus far has exceeded expectations (results wise, at least)?
Well I disagree. I thought we were the better side and worthy of the result. Rooney was lucky to be on the pitch. Poor refereeing cost us the game.
That is what my neighbour said as well. Seems to be going well for you?
Bump, Bump, Bump! and its only half time against Liverpool!
Anyone know who the "Household Name is? Bruce Forsyth, Justin Beiber....
Wonder if Cardiff will figure in the top 4 of the Championship next year?
What a nightmare!! yesterday was a very bad day for Cardiff City FC. It's not just that we failed to get something from a team that I thought would be one of the likely ones for 'the drop' (possibly could still be) It's that that team looked so much better than us!!! And when that team is Swansea city then the pain is far worse!! Ole hasn't got much time to put this right and that result made his task a lot tougher, 3 points on tuesday would be a start - but on the strength of yesterday how likely does that look!!! still there's always the rugby... how did wales get on is the grand slam still on!!
Whilst there are many twists and turns left this season and we are at present far from relegated, it would seem that we are very much up against it regarding our premier league survival. The jury is a little out re the appointment of OGS (although I personally think he will come good) Nevertheless ground expansion continues!! I'm wondering if OGS was told to do what he can for us to survive this season, however if the transition of staff and tactics is to late and we suffer the big drop!! Is the longer term plan to have a year back in the championship and return to the premier league 'better prepared' under Ole? Indeed would ground expansion continue if this was not the case, not many clubs need 33,000+ in the championship afterall, and everything about the club is surely geared for the premier league - oh other than the results!! (I'm not bringing our disgraceful re-brand into my thoughts for our future at the moment and remain hopeful that we will return to blue when the penny drops that red has not had any desired effect - on the contrary)
its far from over paul. you look how the mickeys and barcodes got on last night and it shows that we have got a chance to get points against them. we have to play hull, fulham, palace and stoke at home. That is 12 points up for grabs if we get at them and play like we can going forward. None of those teams will pose the threat that Villa did on the break. Sunderland and Southampton away are possibles for points too. All is not lost!!!
* nothing like the blind optimism of the football fan
Cardiff City v Hull next week is surely one of the most important in the clubs history!! or do I exagerate? to me anything less than 3 points and we're as good as down! whereas a victory and suddenly there's everything to play for and we will be in with a fighting chance of survival. I'm feeling nervous about this one already! and yesterdays damp squib of a cup exit has done very little for my confidence!
They have pulled back the relegations odds, now 1:1/3 from last week's 1:12/13 and Norwich are right back in the mix Lets be hav'ng you Relegated Delia!
That was the game today that our last hopes hung on! it didn't go our way to say the least! next season could be amazing or a complete disaster? who knows?? Cardiff City FC... the only expectation is the unexpected
I'm afraid it is:
" Bye, Bye Black..sorry..Blue.. sorry.. Red Bird.. "
What are the chances of being able to claw their way back into the Premier league next season? Bad news for the fans obviously (although not unexpected!) and bad news for the city in my view too.
