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: Song For Puşcaş

Some guy on twitter started writing new songs for the guys 40 minutes ago. Do we have lurkers from Twitter on here? Is there a song for Pele yet? Asking for a friend. Yeah it goes: Dellor doesnt say your name, Pele, Pele, Isnt that a oxf*rd shame, Gomes ain't his name. Every single night, Every sin...

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: 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.

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

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...

Quick shout out to all those who advocated for trying 3 at the the back today - JMW, Ranty, retro, Elm Park Kid, etc, etc. Well done lads, good call, good chat and input.

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

Like to see us play 3 CB and push Yiadom and Richards further up, sure it would suit us better. Obviously switch the Goalkeeper. ^^^ Relying on Yiadom for width is costing us in defence 3 CBs all the way for me Yep, I'd like to see it tried too. It would get Morrison on the park, and help offset th...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

Asking players who didn't make the cut for the first team squad to join in with the reserves is kind of how it has always been isn't it ? Alas, it's looking like that point won't be conceded. Also, I see what you did there. You referenced the 'reserves' rather than 'forcing them to play with the ki...

Everton rate him a lot I would be very tempted to give him one more outing (tonight) because if he's dropped now, it will be a long road back. Snowy, I hear ya. We're in the (ruthless) business of trying to win football games. The question is whether he currently gives us the best chance of doing s...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

Anyway, we were unlucky not to get anything out of that game against what looked like a pretty poor Hull side ... once again though our keeper looked poor for the first goal, and yes we were denied an obvious penalty - with VAR that would have been a definite. And we hit the cross bar and post. Big...
