    Quite sad you've looked it up. I don't care about what teams not involving us are doing. If you think we are going to anything other than midtable you are pissed or mental

    The last promotion season we played garbage at times also.

    But we were tough to beat and we had a good few last min winners

    It’s the same this season, not much skill, flair etc but a Tough team

    Defence needs a little consistency but I’m sure that will come

    I can't remember us playing that bad in 17/18 at home and winning apart from that Bristol City game

    I wasn't there, and I don't dispute your summary at all, but regards 'Bobby-Who' it seems that he came on at 62 mins for Fulham and , apparently didn't touch the ball once.. Familiar?
    Out of the two I'd rather a grafting determined clogger or two TBH.

    When we play well I'll be postive but nothing so far has been postive for me. Not going to pretend we played well because of a late win least we can't get much worse

    Tiny? The stature of the club is irrelevant over 90 mins.
    Quite sad? We’re discussing Citys performance aren’t we?
    My post was to illustrate that you don’t need to have ‘a hell of a lot more than 4 shots on target’ to win games, as you suggested.

    I'll tell you what then.

    If we finish lower than 12th I'll donate £50 to this forum to go towards next years competition prize fund.

    As long as you do the same when (sorry, if) we finish top half?

    AWay from home I’d fully agree and think we may struggle there but at home if we honestly have any ambition of promotion we should be brushing teams like Luton aside

    Reid was put through on goal late on and put his shot wide of the post. Was on the Quest highlights last night.

    Hope this doesn't come across as "old git syndrome", but I have been supporting City since 1966 and for the vast majority of that time we have been a team of grafters. The best football played was under Dave Jones, but that period was very much the exception.

    As a result, I don't expect our teams to be technically gifted, but comprised of players willing to run through brick walls and beat the opposition using any means at their disposal. That is the "Cardiff way".

    Neil Warnock has taken that to a whole new level, but the philosophy that if the ball is in their half of the field or somewhere in the stands, the opposition is unlikely to score, is a very sound one.

    We have a big squad, but the players are interchangeable. Half a dozen games in, I think we will have a better idea of how things are going to go. We do have good footballers, but some have only just arrived. We may fall short this season, but I think we will do a lot better that some of the doom merchants on here are predicting.

    Seems to me that something major is being overlooked.

    For years now we haven't had the sort of striker that gets into good positions for crosses and can do something with them. Yesterday in his very brief appearance it seems that Vassell could be that type of player. We have some very good wingers who have never really had a target to aim at in the box, at least not one that can use his head. Anyway now all of a sudden maybe having Vassell on the field will offer more real options for our wingers to start causing some real damage.

    The 'sad' thing around here right now is you feller - writing the season off based on the first home game.
    I'd be happy to hear you've shoved your magic crystal ball somewhere where it surely fits.:thumbup:


    Shit WLP, you're just a shit WLP. :hehe:

    3 points in a tricky opener with new players has to just go in the positive book doesn't it?

    Whatever you make of Luton they are used to winning having come up last year. Its a good habit to have so to beat them early in the season is a good result.

    We can still improve.

    No, that's a proper football supporter, backing up his point with hard facts.

    You, on the other hand, are beginning to sound like a broken record. Hopefully, you will feel that your work is done here soon and slink off to practice your trolling skills somewhere else.

    A quick look at your post ratings given to others is a pretty good indication of your intentions here.

    Perhaps someone will kindly let me know when you have gone?
