Transferring from Morinho etc,think Ted has a point. But not this year. Think the Arse look fantastic and Man U scum just as strong-but I at least think we'll be closer than ever before. Chelsea will suffer away from home.

I just think that Chelsea has too much of an experienced squad to not be in the top 4, saying that it depends who chooses the team in the end.

Well Cardiff are safely through to the 4th round with Robbie Fowler and Jimmy Floyd finaly firing on all cylinders for the first time since we signed them.

Good result that. 4-2 away to the Baggies. Good to see our little smackhead still knows where the onion bag is!

Yes he is and now Risdale is in charge in the boardroom instead of Sam the man.

Never sure on the financing which is a worry but the new stadium is under way at last on a ground share scheme with the Cardiff Blues rugby team.

I think Jones is the man to lead them to the premiership and the team looks very good this year on paper its just not been gelling that wel so far and the results have been lacking.

They've looked good in games so i've been told and the die hards believe this could be the best years for ages when the team gets its act together.

Early season stutters are ok but now 7 games in they have to go on a run to be serious contenders......at the moment they are just 7-8 points away but that can't go on.

Always good value Cardiff. Love the passion they have for their team and country. Hard as bollocks too.

The passion has been hard at times especially when stood in just 1500 people when you're struggling in the 3rd division as was or waiting on the club surviving until the next game..........

But as a dyed in the 'wool' fan of the bluebirds the good times come and go on a continuous cycle it seems.........

Been plenty of highs to go with the many lows over the last 20 years or so.

Hope to visit the new stadium in the next few years for a home game and would love to be at fortress Ninian for the last home game but i can't see that happening.......
