    Very encouraging comments from him.:aya:

    -------

    Robert Glatzel believes his upsurge of form is down to Cardiff City's more progressive style of football under Neil Harris.

    While many might deem the brand of football as only subtly different, those within the camp insist they are benefiting from the hours of meticulous work Harris and his staff have put in on the training ground to change City's once notoriously direct attack.

    "When Neil Warnock was manager, there were more long balls and it was more physical," Glatzel said ahead of Tuesday's match with Charlton.

    "I think with Neil Harris, of course it's still physical, that's the league, but we are more creative with the ball and we are holding the ball more.

    "We create more chances and it's a good feeling now being on the pitch with the team, we are playing good football."

    The forward is now City's joint top scorer with seven goals this season.

    He has shown a clinical edge in front of goal, not only in the last two weeks, but on other occasions throughout the season - the beautiful strike against Reading in the FA Cup springs to mind.

    He does look a natural in front of goal and last weekend Harris said Glatzel is as good a finisher as anyone he has ever played with or coached, quite the compliment for the German.

    "These are nice words to hear," Glatzel added. "It gives you confidence.

    "When we have shooting drills, when we are doing well, he says that to me. But if we're not doing well, he tells us then, too!

    "But he often tells me I am a good finisher, so it wasn't surprising for me to hear it on the news."

    It would be a very useful time for him to come good. How we've yearned for a good striker.

    He would have thrived in the early part of the last promotion season. Warnock wasn't always hoofball but he seemed to rely more and more on it.

    When expectation grew Warnock went back to bus trusted pragmatic football to get us over the line we were just getting results the football was awful.

    TBH tge day we turned villa over was some of the best football we played for a long long time, when results took priority he went back to tried and tested and never looked back

    That was down to a confident Ken running the channels. Him and NML practically ended John Terry’s career in that game. We then started smashing it at him from miles away and relying on nicking games with set pieces.

    We may have had a couple, but the tactics have not helped them out.

    He's the fabled 7-goals-a-season striker we've been waiting for

    Fantastic counter attacking football, broke with power and pace. A lot of teams couldn’t cope with us, especially during the early part of the season.
    We went to the amazing, self proclaimed “best championship team ever” Wolves and played them off the park.

    It was frustrating in the end as we were capable of producing some good football, i know we got promoted but by christ it was a tough watch, percentage football isn’t for me

    Off injured with a head injury, let’s hope it’s not concussion and he misses the Wurzels game

    We were just building up a bit of pressure when that pointless drinks break came along and broke it up.
