sorry i dont agree with us being average. I think we will be a bloody good side in the next year or so.
We’re talking about now ffs.
Speaking to Cardiff fans that know something about football (a contradiction in terms, I know), they are totally dismayed and want a massive reset. I think we can all see what is trying to be achieved here, with a pain barrier we have to go through as our players get better and better at the system. In that way alone, I think we are better than average, and them worse with no plan to improve.

From what I’ve seen so far this season I agree with you.

I don’t believe it’s been mentioned but it appears the half marathon is Sunday and a number of roads will be closed.

Should be interesting….

Who on earth have the club got in charge of publicity statements and wouldn't a GCSE Grade 1 in English be a minimum requirement?

I've received an email entitled "Derby day preperations". I think you'll find that should say "preparations". Now we have the above Twitter statement mentioning "a fourth criteria". 'Criteria' is the plural of 'criterion' so it should say "a fourth criterion". So amateurish. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Maybe they were educated here

So, the whole squad is available for selection - an achievement really given RM is trying to increase the fitness levels. The international break will have helped of course.

He has said players are available before and then they aren't. I'm not building my hopes up for 90 minutes of Ntcham. He won't play Obafemi and Piroe from the start anyway; he should, and really go for these whangers, but he won't. It'll be the standard team and the dance around in front of them. I just hope they don't hit us from a set piece again while we are doing our handbag dance. We need the first goal.

And the second one.

I think Cardiff haven't scored in the 1st half yet this season? This being the case we need to hit them hard and fast. The first goal is always important, esp in the derby, and we need to minimise free kicks around the box, corners, oh and throw ins! I'm still confident though, and just hope we're solid enough at the back with no daft errors. There, I've said it...

This.
Derby day brings emotions absolutely like no other. Excitement/hate/anxiety/ tension/anticipation/loathing/comedy. All in the space of a couple of hours .
Cannot beat it.
