Nothing much to report on the City front this week apart from the news that it looks like they’ll be having a pre season training camp in Austria and there are some names to mention of the transfer speculation front, Firstly, there was something online about us and Luton being interested in Southampton’s Ross Stewart. The Scottish international striker is a twenty seven year old target man striker who was something of a late developer as he only moved into the professional game at the age of twenty with Albion Rovers (actually, that’s not really true, because Albion are only a part time club ..read more

Just as they did last year, Cardiff City waited (or, maybe, were forced to wait might be more appropriate this time around) until the first week in June , that’s a month since they last played, to confirm who their manager would be for the season which will be starting in two months time. There were times when I was pretty sure that Erol Bulut would not stay at Cardiff beyond the one season, but, recently, it seemed pretty clear that City wanted him here for 24/25 and it became a case of the longer it was taking to get an announcement, the more likely it became that Bulut was staying – if he ..read more

I’m a member of Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust and have been helping them out on the Admin side of things for nearly fifteen years. However, with all due respect to those who give up their time to represent their members, what the Trust has to say on a City related subject shouldn’t really be the most newsworthy thing to happen to Cardiff City in the past week as we approach the opening of the transfer window and the return of the players to training after their holidays in the next few weeks, with no clue yet as to who will be the manager when preparations for the new season begin in earnest ..read more

Thirteen years can seem like an eternity when you’re in the first quarter of your life, but for those of us who are likely to be in our last one, it’s nothing but the blink of an eye almost. It was thirteen years ago that Neil Lennon, who was then manager of Celtic, implored his team “not to do a Cardiff” when they travelled to lowly Inverness Caledonian trying to keep their fading title challenge alive. Lennon was referring specifically to City’s implosion aa few days earlier against a Middlesbrough team with nothing to play for at Cardiff City Stadium in early May 2011. It was our penultima ..read more

Cardiff humiliated on final day of season as “we want you to stay” choruses still ring out.

By any criteria, Rotherham United 22/23 have to be judged as one of the worst Championship sides of the twenty first century. Before today’s season ending game, they had won just four times in forty five, they’d not scored a goal in over a month and had not scored in ten of their last eleven matches. Rotherham had just twenty four points and had been relegated over a month ago. Now, I know the final day of the season has a history of producing strange results and, in the grand scheme of things, what happens in game forty six is often virtually forgotten about by the time the next campaign get ..read more

Cardiff City’s 23/24 season comes to an end, not with the last game being the climax to a relegation cliffhanger that many expected it to be (there were those who thought the relegation issue would have worked out badly for us before it got to the last game as well). Instead, we go to a team that had their relegation confirmed weeks ago and, according to Erol Bulut in his press conference yesterday, have an injury crisis to match our own. Therefore, the prospect of us finishing in the top ten cannot be ruled out and, although regular readers of this blog will know that I’m not the manager’s b ..read more

Following the very good win over Southampton seven days ago, it’s been a week where those who want Cardiff City manager Erol Bulut to stay in the job for next season have been able to put their case almost unopposed. Straight after the Southampton match, Bulut was serenaded by choruses of “we want you to stay” as he and his team took the plaudits for what I reckon was our best home win of the season. The Monday night podcast that I’m in the habit of listening to has been anti Bulut for most of 2024, but this time the four man panel was split on what City should next, but this was as of nothin ..read more

Another truly memorable home game in a season of much boredom at Cardiff City Stadium

The first thing to say about this amazing match at Cardiff City Stadium this afternoon where Cardiff City dealt a possibly fatal blow to Southampton’s automatic promotion hopes with a 2-1 win is that on another day, they could easily have conceded half a dozen goals. Stuart Armstrong, a real class act at this level who was stretchered off in the dying minutes with what looked a serious injury, hit the post in five minutes to set the tone for a first half where the visitors had so many chances to add to the one goal they did get and the pattern continued through the third quarter of the game ..read more

Cardiff City will face Southampton in their penultimate home game of the season with a side missing as many as twelve first team squad members tomorrow. A combination of illness and injuries had Erol Bulut fearing that Jamilu Collins, Josh Bowler and Callum Robinson could join those ruled out for the final weeks of the season in missing the match against a team which must be quite fancying its chances of making the top two after all, given the mess Leicester, Leeds and Ipswich are making of things lately. Bulut confirmed that Perry Ng, who has been carrying some sort of niggle for weeks, has ..read more

It must have been during one of City’s relegation fighting seasons in the early to mid seventies that I formed one of the beliefs which I have carried through my football supporting life. If your team is in a promotion or relegation battle, the best sort of sides you can face in the closing games of the season are ones that are in mid table with nothing to play for as they will not have the same stomach for the fight as you. That’s a view I have held for half a century or more, an awful lot of football has been played in that time and I wonder if it proves my theory right? It needs some stude ..read more
