Re: Rival Watch

Norwich are a good team but too many teams try and show them too much respect. They have the quality to break sides down who sit back as they play between the lines very well and create chances Whereas if you press up on them, I don’t think their defence (CB’s really) are particularly strong on the...

Re: Rival Watch

Neil Harris has been given the heave-ho. Not terribly surprising.

We can confirm that First Team Manager Neil Harris and Assistant Manager David Livermore have left Cardiff City Football Club with immediate effect.

Re: 150th Anniversary Thread - 2021/22

As we were founded on Christmas Day 1871, I take it our Boxing Day match next year will be the big 150th anniversary game. Hopefully it will be a better spectacle than the travesty that was the 2-1 home defeat to Burton on our 500th Madejski Stadium game celebration. There's no actual evidence to s...

Re: Snog, marry, avoid

With no game on Saturday, Mick, Tim and Adie got into a rather heated debate over which of our current players they'd most like to snog, marry and avoid. Would be interested to know what you guys think. I'll start: Snog - Tom McIntyre (he's beautiful) Marry - Michael Morrison (owns three barber sho...

Re: Ex Players

Karl Sheppard, who was briefly at Reading, but never settled, has now retired from football at the age of 29. He was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis two years ago, and has struggled since then.

Re: Ex Players

More worryingly you don't seem to see how how you more closely you describe yourself with your outburst here. I dont hate Gunter. I thought he was a model professional and I think he was an incredible athlete. I think he was shit at closing down his winger though. Very shit at it. I'm also not obse...

Re: Ex Players

Oh I do but I was checking to make sure you weren't really suggesting that a single player can be the reason for an uptick in fortunes but not the reason for a downturn in fortunes. Because, you know, that would make you sound like an idiot. indeed - so the reverse - implying he had nothing to do w...

Re: Ex Players

Just incredible that the valid criticism that many of us leveled at Gunter for years, yet was dismissed by many, has been noticed within half a season by another fan base. you mean the section of the fanbase that would ignore the uptick in results since he joined Charlton, but blame him when the cl...

Re: Ex Players

Lots of Charlton fans complaining about Gunter now on twitter. They say he doesn't close down his man and have no idea why he keeps getting selected. Uncanny. Well, well, well what a surprise. Next stop Newport or Wrexham? Just incredible that the valid criticism that many of us leveled at Gunter f...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

I think it is no difference this window or the next he leaves as we will get compensation for youth training which will be approx. Million anyway. I think 2 million and take it and buy someone else from the lower leagues. Tie down McIntyre and Olise and move on. You get no compensation if a player ...

who would you add Vic (other than a pacey winger)? I don't see a lot of gaps tbh. Obvs cover for any more injures or ones that dont heal up by end of jan We need a second Joao. Because we're more likely* to get one of those than we are to change our formation to suit our other forwards when Joao is...

Re: BFTC - Huddersfield

HRK was a fairly ordinary player (useful option from the sub’s bench) who nonetheless ground out a good career for himself. I don’t believe all this “arrogance” stuff. People seem to like to believe that footballers (particularly black footballers) are arrogant but a player of such mundanity managi...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Pretty sure this is the case. Money has to all come through the door on day 1, with no contingent payments or clever structuring. If it is then wouldn't be too unhappy. Rather that than a headline 15m, where we get 3m up front and the rest over time or based on apps etc. Presumably the figure is a ...

Re: Next 6 games?

I'd be delighted with 5-6 points from the next 6 games tbh, given our current injury list. We'd be in reasonably good shape then for another push in January. I hope though that in the inevitable losses, we keep the goal count down. Goal difference could be crucial if the table is as tight at the en...

Hate to say it but I think we’ll be bringing up that Oliver Langford sh*tshow come May. We may well do but if we miss out by a point or two then, so far, the 2nd half horror show at Bournemouth or the failure to beat 10 man Brumby including missing a pen would be just as culpable. Agree, unless you...

Re: Rival Watch

Both Gunter and GMac needed a fresh start. Good to see them both playing well for their new clubs but they’d done their time here. Obita the same. And suspect we saved a fortune on wages Yep, agreed. I think McCleary would have like to have stayed, but the club withdrew the offer. I get the impress...
