    I'd prefer to see how he goes on over 10 games before writing him off to be honest.

    He only needs to concentrate on first team performance. His title is First Team Manager.

    The youth development etc is not in his remit, so I would not expect anything other than payment of lip service to the subject.

    A privilege to be here. A great opportunity. I left Millwall seven weeks ago and recharged the batteries. This is a wonderful job to come into, following Neil who did a fantastic job here. I’ve got a wonderful group of players who have achieved individually and collectively

    Whirlwind. Meetings, meeting Ken, talking to Vincent on the phone. It’s been a whirlwind 48 hours rather than five or six days. Really positive. There’s some good people

    Football principles on and off the field?
    Off the field is to manage with humility. When I went to Millwall in my first job, I had to build relations between the terraces and the football pitch, academy and the first team and try to bring it all together. There’s been a wonderful recent history at this club, for everybody. So I will bring humility to the club, huge energy and excitement about the group. Principles on the pitch, to be the manager the same way I played. Wholehearted, aggressive, passing the ball, getting it forward the right times. Working with a group of players who have been recruited previously, it’s not a revolution overnight. We want to be an aggressive team

    If he says anything like "we need to build from the back" or "possession is not everything" I'm off.

    Club needed a different set of principles?
    I’m a different person to Neil, younger and a different way of working. Different schedule and training methods, so the players will have to get on board with that quickly. On the pitch, you have to work with the players you’ve got at your disposal straight away and guide them. You can’t go from being Millwall, Cardiff City to Manchester City overnight. I want to maximise a good group of players.

    Plus I'm a firm believer that possession is not everything and that we need to build from the back and anyone that doesn't like that philosophy can do one, preferably without asking any questions.

    Promotion, aims?
    To get to know the players, meet all the staff and try to get across my principles in a short space of time. Tough week because we’ve got players away and we have to prepare for the three games next week. New to the job and to the area, the change is vast. I know the principles of the fans, I’ve played here myself

    Fans reaction, not Neil Warnock, but Warnock-like?
    What you’re referring to is the club previously and the way we played (Millwall). Getting the ball forward quickly, some principles I will stick to, some I want to adjust now. How I’ve come through as a coach I want to stick to some of them. I don’t think there is a Neil Warnock mark II. I will be respectful to the players I’ve got. There has to be a process of change, it won’t be overnight. I want to adjust the mindset of the players, not just one style of play. Top-six finish is ultimately the aim, I won’t make any promises because we have to earn the right. It’s not easy when you come out of the Premier League to get there. You get fans over by winning games of football and being yourself

    Underwhelmed fans?
    I’m not on social media, but I’m also understanding. I know how football works, everyone wants a big name and someone who has won the world cup. No disrespect to Millwall, I’ve come from a club at a different level to what Cardiff is at. I will always do my best for Cardiff City. I played at Ninian Park, played a lot against Cardiff teams, fans want to see players have a go. I can promise them we won’t fall short of competing and doing our best.

    No (not worked with players before), that’s positive. Fresh voice, fresh ideas, fresh training sessions, fresh ideas

    Hesitation bringing David Livermore?
    No, he is a wonderful guy and a fantastic coach, we work well together. Andy Dibble stays as goalkeeping coach. I look forward to working with the staff.

    Well, he's certainly saying all the right things. He also sounds realistic and isn't promising the earth.

    Chats with Vincent Tan?
    Vincent wants to be successful. He’s been very positive with me and I look forward to trying to repay the favour. There’s lots of ways to improve the club, results first and foremost. There’s lots to build on at this club. The academy, I want to work close with the academy. You look at the squad and I certainly want to build that relationship with the academy. Some plans moving forward with the club to progress that and produce a pathway to come through
