Cardiff City and the definition of madness.

I think I’ve used that line about the definition of madness being to keep on making the same mistake time after time and expecting a different outcome on here in recent weeks and applied it Cardiff City – if I haven’t, I’m sure there are very many supporters of the club who have done. However, I’m going to go for a variation of it this time and say that the definition of madness for a Cardiff City blog writer is to watch the same old, same old week after week, have nothing new to say on the subject, but still write reams and reams of stuff that, in essence, is a repeat of what you said the pr ..read more

With yesterday’s claims that City tried to get Emiliano Sala insured the day after his fatal plane crash (I should say that the club have put out a statement on their website denying the allegation), things have reached a stage which I thought they never would – I get more enjoyment out of doing these quizzes than the match reports these days! We’ve got yet another of those home games which are being called “must win” tomorrow. The same label was applied to the previous three league matches at Cardiff City Stadium and we didn’t win any of them. With what seems to be a week of aimless drift si ..read more

Well, Mauve and Yellow Army has been going for nearly thirteen and a half years now and I think I’m going to set a blog record tonight for the shortest piece ever for a first team game. I’m reaching the stage now where I’m running out of things to say.My football  club is a complete shambles on and off the pitch and I think we’re now in a situation where a hierarchy with a woeful record in all facets of the off field management side of the game and a worse one when it comes to on field matters have to come up with an inspired choice for our new manager because morale among players, other ..read more

All City fans know what happened in 1927 and I would guess that a fair number of them also know what happened two years later. For those who don’t, we were relegated, but it wasn’t just any old relegation, this was going down with the best defensive record in the top flight! Goals were more common place in football in the late twenties than they are now, so, although fifty-nine goals conceded from forty-two matches doesn’t sound anything special, no one in the old First Division could better it – not even Champions Sheffield Wednesday (they were called The Wednesday in those days apparently ..read more

Wigan are one of a handful of clubs that present a challenge with this quiz in that we’ve only been playing them for the past forty years or so, but I always try to come up with the usual seven questions and I’ve done so again this time – the answers will be posted on here on Sunday. 60s. The sixth of eleven children, this prolific winger never got to play against the place(s) that bore his surname or for the city of his birth and the suspicion is that the latter was for reasons that had nothing to do with his playing ability. Instead, he turned out for a team which sounded like a means of wa ..read more

I would have entitled this a perfect day for City fans were it not for a disappointing loss last night by the youth team at Oxford United in the Fourth Round of the FA Youth Cup – this is not the first time in recent years that our youngsters have gone out of that competition to a club with a lower Academy status than us and it came after we’d got the perfect start by taking the lead on just three minutes thanks to a long range goal by Will Spiers. However, two goals in a two minutes early in the second half turned the tie around and another one with around fifteen minutes left saw City bow o ..read more

It’s typical of how things are at Cardiff City these days that a goal in added time prevented them from giving the whole club a huge lift with a “giant killing” win in the Third Round of the FA Cup this afternoon, but, truthfully, it would have been something of a case of daylight robbery if we’d hung on to beat Leeds. Still, it’s pleasing that, in a cup weekend that has had some memorable televised live games, we were involved in what must have been a good watch for any neutrals and, despite a team selection which suggested otherwise, this was also a tie at which the usual criticisms about C ..read more

In a strange game at Elwood Park this lunchtime in which the size of the crisis at Cardiff City Stadium become even clearer, City were deservedly beaten by a one goal margin by a Blackburn Rovers side whose third place standing in the current table is as much evidence as you need that, the runaway top two apart, it’s a very, very ordinary Championship this season. I mentioned a one goal margin, but you don’t need to be a genius to work out what the score was from that. It goes without saying of course that it was1-0. The goal had more than an element of luck to it and City had a go once they ..read more

The team which cannot stop drawing lately travels to the side with the most remarkable record out of the ninety two this season tomorrow. In fact, I would argue that Blackburn Rovers have the most remarkable record of this and any other season in recent memory. Despite their current position of third in the table, Blackburn have lost more games than City have this season – in fact, only Huddersfield and Wigan have lost more than them. However, because the Lancashire team can back up their twelve losses with thirteen wins, they find themselves right in the running for a Play Off spot. Normally ..read more

Cardiff City emerged from their last game of 2022 at Coventry tonight with a good point. A fourth consecutive draw since the resumption of fixtures is an okay return overall, but the result was the most impressive thing about this game as far as City are concerned – it’s best to draw a veil over the performance. Of course, the most likely result if this team draws is 0-0 and so it was tonight. I suppose the two City efforts on target, as reported by the BBC, is an improvement on Monday’s none, but we had some good chances against QPR, whereas I can only recall a single decent opportunity for ..read more
