Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Adam Federici

Rino is much less reliant on others to look good. The thing that makes me say he's overrated is the fact he's only actually played around 20 first team games for us, many we've lost and looked appalling in, and yet many on here talk as though he is undroppable and essentially the next coming. I thi...

Re: Will we get found out again?

I'd we do stick with 3-5-2, does Blackett effectively become a CB option when fit? McIntyre seems like the only current backup option Gomes trusts, do this would make sense if Richards and Obita can cover LWB. Some of Blackett's best performances under Stam came as the left sided CB in 3-5-2 Well, ...

Re: The Non - League thread

I think quite a lot have teams have that issue. Such a stupid rule. If they did pull off the miraculous, surely the could groundshare for a season? With Wycombe? No way Maidenhead will go up. I went to the Chesterfield game a couple of weeks ago and they already look better than last season, to be ...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

Re. ref retention stats, and their pay, we had this discussion a while back, and I think it was said that they are decently paid now esp given their hours? Not sure, but I think one of the refs among us said that? Also, their training programs are better than ever, fitness and diet training has come...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Adam Federici

They are two different players who really can't be compared, and to say Rino is overrated, is just a bit shortsighted. Well, I'm not sure really. Shortsighted, or a different opinion about a player in a discussion forum? Whenever someone says 'overrated' in here it sends out alarm bells when it doe...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

On Swift, not only does he look to have toughened up but he just looks quicker-not just for his goal but on other occasions as well. This is the Swift we want and maybe being free of injury helps. Yep, said at the end of last season wanted him to get in a better conditioning program over the Summer...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

Nah. That keeper is good at saving penalties. Not that it was a great one. But he hit it with power at least. Reckon its easy to point out the keeper did well to save it. It's not like he blasted ot over. That's why I just said 'pen's are missed, it's part of the game, and you get on with it'. Not ...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

Feel like the pressure of strong competition is getting to Meite a bit. Well, can certainly understand some of his frustrations given the new arrivals. (Other's are prolly frustrated too?) Was prolly frustrated he missed the pen, too. But pen's are missed, it's part of the game, and you get on with...

Re: Will we get found out again?

Baker progressed well, but he took a while to bed in, and some were less than impressed early doors.
Pele has prolly started much the faster of the two.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Adam Federici

Rinkmhota could easily play the Pele role. Well, we've hardly seen much of Pele yet because he just got here. We don't know the scope he has for improvement as he gets settled, adjusts and learns the system, and better understands what Gomes wants from him. He might be a different player in a month...

Re: Will we get found out again?

I don't buy that one formation or particular style is wrong at all. If that were the case no manager would adopt it. Every formation or style has a weakness and strength. It is the manager's job to assess which style and formation will win with the players available. That brings me onto my next poi...

Re: Rival Watch

Go cherry-pick the juiciest post, and then 'Hey, look what Cardiff fans are saying !!!'.
Then go back yourself (if you care) and see if it's representative of the fan base as a whole.

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

I think we just found our best 11 for the moment, the only thing ambiguous is whether Rino or Pele should be partnering Ejaria. Rino deserves to be starting but I understand Jose's tactical inclination if Pele is providing better defensive cover. We might have a selection headache in midfield now t...

Lower West
Platypuss That's the John Swift I want to see week in week out. Imperious.

No longer has to carry the team. Can focus on what he's good at.

Yep, having now had a full off-season with Gomes, won't be surprised if he continues his improvement under him.

Sorry for maybe putting this in the wrong thread: From Live4Liverpool: When Liverpool agreed to send Ovie Ejaria back on loan to Reading, no one would have expected a couple of weeks later to see him being described as “world class” and “unplayable”. However that is exactly what has happened with s...
