  1. In fairness Pato got found out at Derby As wasn’t a regular starter and they couldn’t send him back to us quick enough!
  2. Shuffle


    With injuries piling up we are quickly becoming short of numbers. Do any regular watchers of the academy hold out any hope that if pressed there are any who could step into the match day squad? Could Opi Edwards cover RWB, could Towler/Harrison cover CB’s or is there anyone else that has the ability/potential to contribute now? Appreciate views from those that watch u23’s as they are just names to me.
  3. This is so frustrating as Williams said he’d be fit after the international break, so clearly had a set back. Think O’Dowda is ahead of Nagy/HNM for one of the three MF slots
  4. Think you’re writing off the possibility that Palmer would be successful as know you are not a fan. He could go out and be a huge success which makes him more marketable to not just Swansea. Palmer has definitely split opinions amongst fans but if he’s not going to play then take the saving in wages. Good luck to Kasey as hope he proves a lot of people wrong.
  5. Saw something on twitter last night saying Fenerbeche had made a £3m offer. Needs to be gone by next Monday as cannot run risk of losing for free but not sure how legit the source is
  6. Take whatever we can get for him as doesn’t fit the system & won’t sign his contract. After Thursday, I think we can safely say Villa aren’t interested as was dreadful
  7. Intrigued to see what people’s opinions of Zak are. He’s a confusing one for me as seen flashes that show him as a talented player with ability and was superb at Swansea away. However, watching him defend he gets beat too easily and got caught ball watching a couple of long diagonals last night that put his man 1-1 with keeper. He’s 23 with over 100 games at various clubs and not convinced he’s a long term starter for us but could be wrong.
  8. Need another CB don’t we. We cannot go into another minimum of 2 months with 3 CBs when playing 3-5-2. Will potentially derail us as no cover, if we’ve got Suspension, illness and form concerns. Unload Nagy, Eliasson, HNM if we can find buyers to fund it. As for Aden Baldwin pay him off and do a deal as if he’s not close today then he never will be.
  9. Why on earth would we even contemplate helping the Gas. If he goes there and is successful then he will have directly contributed to their points tally. Not one to think about it’s for his own development where that shower are concerned as wish them nothing but failure.
  10. Shuffle


    I’d be more confident if we didn’t have injuries & went with a full strength squad. If he plays Pato & Weimann as part of a 3 we will get over run, so has to be Bakinson, Nagy & Pato for me to give us more solidity. Like you, I would take a point but worried about their set play prowess and our ability to physically compete
  11. You seem a very knowledgeable football man Graham but just don’t understand why you do not seem to rate Palmer at all? He was superb and previously wrongly in my opinion people have questioned his work rate but that was exceptional last night. He is technically gifted and just needs a run of games although doesn’t start for me at the moment as Pato has earned that right. Whatever your view and opposition, that was a fantastic make or break performance from him.
  12. Personally think he comes across as very arrogant and thinks he’s superior from an intellect perspective. Not an engaging Or warm personality but was a great player for us. Focus on a few tweets rather than the thousands who supported you Joe !!! Disappointing but not surprised
  13. Living all our dreams ...........congrats James and first of many
  14. He’s got a worse record than Baker who he makes look like iron man !!
  15. Never seen Aden Baldwin play but aged 23 now and you have to question why he’s still here? If he can’t be considered as a CB with us seriously depleted then there’s no hope. Anyone who has seen him.....does he deserve a chance or is he miles off it?
  16. The thing that I don’t get is that the club is crying out for money due to Covid, so why delay the launch and therefore not take a golden opportunity to generate revenue? I get the sponsor change delayed it but why shoot yourself in the foot
  17. So sorry for your loss and I could replace my dad with your dad in those stories. He certainly left you with some great memories
  18. Good read and so remember lots of the games and incidents discussed. Hope your dad is doing well
  19. Well if we are going with 3-5-2 we are light in terms of CB’s so will be a priority. Think there must be better than Williams out there and shame if reported we’ve missed out on Dunkley
  20. Does call into question whether the recruitment of the two coaches, the sacking of JM and not offering contract to Korey were Holden’s call as suggested yesterday? The fact this was alluded to last week and the deal was done 2 weeks ago, certainly puts a big doubt that it was. Don’t know about Rory Holden but there’s plenty of competition infront of him in fairness.
  21. I use to play football with favs and he definitely thought he was Virgil as a CH, so get the ego comment. Seriously though a more honest and straight forward guy you couldn’t meet and he’s just respecting confidentiality. Keep going Fevs as love the posts but sort those graphs out as make no sense!
  22. I’m guessing Rory Holden then to Walsall on a perm !
  23. 45 pros on contract or offered new terms. Add in the loans of 4 players plus those released in Smith,Wright, Taylor, Maenpaa we had a staggering 53 pros paid for from January. Read this morning about the £200k for Gilmartin and how on earth have we ended up with so much excess in the squad. More prudent management of contracts in a loss making business has to be a priority & shocked that basic principles of cost control go out the window.
  24. Sorry for trying to help & wasting your time ..........however the no refunds part relates to those that had already purchased season tickets. So irrespective of Covid Cardiff are not obliged or offering refunds for tickets purchased already for 20/21 season Irrespective of circumstance
  25. Why the hell do we have 45 pros under contract. I hope I’m wrong but why were people like Baldwin, Evans,Gilmartin, Cundy, Edwards,Holden given 2 year deals last season as cannot see any of these will break through. I get people develop later but come on do we really need so many pros?? As for Korey outstanding player & person but time for a new challenge. In the double winning side and first year up he was superb
