Re: Players who virtually won us games/promotion/avoided relegation on their own

Nicky Shorey - in one game vs Middlesborough. First game of Premier League, losing, from left back he took the ball and in one move and overall performance said "we deserve to be here". No relegation and best ever season followed because the whole team then believed, despite the pundits ha...

EXCELLENT JOB 1871 VERY PROUD OF YOU - take that from an old pro responsible for running away from many an away group over the years!


This - much improved the matchday experience for all. More atmosphere generated by £15K on tues night than at either games televised last night.

Re: On this day

Crazy end to that season (though obviously the following year made up for it) 70pts after 43 games and seemingly a shoe in for the play-offs we contrived to lose our last 3 games to let Pardew's West Ham sneak in and go on to win the play-offs. Yep, that team would never achieve anything... wait th...

Old Man Andrews Should be a sell out. OPTIMISTIC. Most important game for about 5 years. PLAY-OFF FINAL?

The FA Cup is far, far more important that the playoffs. Fact.


5th round?... if you say so.

BTFG - Cardiff Away Cup

First trip to new stadium. Atmosphere of a pre-season friendly, but with less fans. Pie and Ale scored well. 1st half. Bad. Lucky only to be 1 down. Nothing going through midfield. Swift playing higher up and was flat-footed and having a mare. Meant few options for defenders with ball and poor servi...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Just seen that Club 1871 is closed for Cardiff with the intention that we go back to Y25/Y26 But it's not unreserved seating - so what's the score? Do we have to battle the stewards to stand again? While not behind the goal, at goal kicks you still get to shout: YOUR SHEEP, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!...
