  1. Welcome back to the Championship Cardiff.... you're being beaten 3-0 by Reading in front of about 200 fans. I'm sure Warnock will have someone to blame.
  2. That sounds highly significant. From memory, the weather was really awful that night so the pilot and passenger probably kept ventilation to a minimum. Any death is a tragedy but if the evidence identifies a problem that was avoidable, it must be even more heartbreaking for both families.
  3. Thanks Rob, excellent write up as usual. I'm not sure whether a cup run would have been useful or not. Although we've got a lot of players to keep happy, I think LJ will need to focus quickly on his main eleven. The instability of life after Webster calls for decisive action. I'm concerned he's going to have another 'tinkering' season and change the team week to week. Absolutely delighted to hear that Massengo was able to influence the game. His talent was obvious but at €8M he cannot be one for the future. And if Semenyo is starting to show then we could finally have a decent number of viable striker options again. This feels like it's going to be a tough season when in real terms this is most even Championship of recent years - and could have been our best chance since Johnson snr to make the top 6.
  4. Straight to pens. Then extra time. Then a replay.
  5. I think LJ trusts Korey - in his teams at Oldham and City. The main concern is, of course, fitness and staying injury free. The Korey Smith that played last season looked every bit the player we need to support the new midfielders.
  6. Looks like he was working harder for us....maybe he's taking it easy under Warnock!
  7. Yes, and he looks like the real deal but he's young and lightweight. I'm not against letting Pack go and I thought our midfield was pretty good against Brum but there's a risk to saying a player isn't missed when the whole situation can change very quickly. One of Pack's great attributes was staying relatively injury free during so many long seasons. We don't know how Nagy or Massengo will hold up under the pressures of Championship football. Let's hope for the best.
  8. An injury to Nagy or Brownhill and I think we're going to regret it. Until (hopefully) Korey Smith is back to his former level, we might really miss the backup of Pack's experience in the team/squad.
  9. The most painful part of watching the Birmingham game was seeing Baker and Wright with the ball at their feet and knowing from their body language that they were going to hit it long. Yesterday's backline formation was forced on LJ with the players he still had available. That said, I was really disappointed for Taylor Moore, he needs game time.
  10. You'll probably do fine. Warnock has a way of getting the best from straightforward players and there should be plenty of value left in Pack and Flint. They'll both play better for being in the same team again. What puzzles me is that you keep coming back for our players (and an ex-player) when we've only beaten you once since 2012.
  11. It's just great to have a new proven striking option. No criticism for Diedhiou's efforts over the last season or so as it's been unfair of us to expect so much of a lone and often isolated striker. With Weimann and Afobe on the pitch together, I can see something that will complement Fam's decent goal to game return - and spread out the fan's expectation. And if Palmer keeps playing like he did today, they'll all get goals.
  12. That first half could have been a disaster with so many new players. All things considered, it was pretty good.
  13. It feels far too soon to criticise Taylor Moore for anything that went wrong in the Leeds game. He might have not even made the squad if Webster's transfer hadn't gone through 24 hrs before. Hardly ideal preparation. He made a few mistakes and looked short of pace but Kalas and Hunt didn't cover themselves in glory. If I was typing this from my laptop, I would run a search on posts from 12 months ago when some people were saying Webster looked uncertain on the ball and was a poor replacement for the departed Flint. We need to give Moore at least 5 games to know whether he's going to make the grade. A strong season at Southend with all their fans wishing him well tells you everything. Both Flint and Webster made that lower league transition so every reason to think that Taylor Moore has more than enough to make that CB role his own. Had we gone out and bought a 22 year old player who had represented England at U17, U18, U19 and U20 level, we would have been pretty excited.
