    therealhantsram reacted to Andicis in Cardiff City (H) Match Thread   
    I don't care how he played for Portsmouth, for us, he's been a mistake waiting to happen on the ball for a few games now. I don't care what whoscored gave him. I watched the game. He made me feel nervous and uncomfortable with how he played the ball, his passing was all over the place, he didn't come for the ball, he got caught out of position. Not at all impressed.

    Nah I dunt want ta be negative...but I cant help feeling Cocu looks a bit like a dead man walking... I'm not sure if this Rooney gaff has undermined him in sum way . Summat to me and Hilda just ain't reet ....what's tha reckon ?

    Suspect (not checked so this could be garbage on my part) that it's the national association you're not allowed to sue, which would be the FA.
    My impression on actually seeing the story rather than the wild headlines is that a "solicitor's letter" will never amount to suing the league. It's just making their sour grapes public. I agree with the thread comments that something odd is going on with Gibson. Perhaps he's trying to create a climate of being wronged to help him walk away from Boro without it looking that he's leaving them in the lurch. A sort of "it's not my fault but I caan't go on when others don't play by the rules" excuse for getting out before he loses any more money.

    Odd one this. I thought clubs waived their rights to sue the governing body as a condition of being members.

    Ok, a point's a point but should have been 3. Ref awful, just awful
    The positives
    Bielik my MOTM by a stretch. Needs to stay in Midfield.
    Marriott looked dangerous but ran out of steam
    Waggers worked his socks off.
    Holmes looked good, solid with Bielik.
    J'zoon looked direct and dangerous.
    Great to see Martin back, he needs a run...partnered with Marriott IMO.
    The negatives
    Roos scares the Edam out of me.  Flaps and dithers far too much. January transfer window please.
    Clarke, gone from the immovable object on his debut to a bundle of nerves.  What's happened?
    Lawrence needs dropping. He does my nut in.  Promises so much and sadly rarely delivers. Dare I say sell, sell, sell. 
    Overall
    Aside from the negatives above, I get a feeling we're about to click. Several bad decisions against us tonight inc. a clear pen (TV replays show def pen) Formation worked better, creating some great chances.  Bogle to come back very soon which will make a helluva difference.
    I have a good feeling things are about to happen.

    therealhantsram reacted to Millenniumram in The Championship 19/20   
    Pretty much exactly the point I was trying to make, but made better than I could manage!😂
    Think people sometimes underestimate the difference between league one and championship clubs because the difference in player quality between the lower champ and upper L1 isn’t that High. But there’s more to it than that when you’re moving to a much bigger club, which is exactly what Cowley is doing moving from a club that was in league two last year to One that was in the prem last year. You end up with a a club with a much more professional set up, more staff than you’ve ever been used to handling, more day to day responsibilities etc, and that’s a big change when you’ve been somewhere previously with an almost non league set up. You have to get used to not having total control over transfers etc etc. And that’s the case moving to most championship clubs, as most have been in the prem since the turn of the century at some point or another. 
    Its a big jump when you’ve been in league one for a while, yet alone when you’ve only been there a month! In the former case, you’d probably argue you’re ready by now for the step up, but in the latter it’s a real gamble by the team appointing you. Not saying experience is everything, but with managers it is generally very important imo. There are always outliers to the norm who manage to make massive leaps up with no bother at all, as there are exceptions with almost anything in football as it’s so unpredictable. But in general, experience is important for a manager, and I’d say this is a big gamble. One that could work out of course, but not one I’d be taking if I was Huddersfield.

    He's no idiot. He's one of the players. Ran his own City firm "Farage Futures" for a decade. His father and brother both work or worked in the City too. He knows exactly what he's doing and he and his chums will be in the money. Money that used to be in our pockets.

    He seems like he can do everything except catch properly. I'm not sure if it's a technical flaw or if his decision making is just a bit poor, but there are times he should be catching the ball and he punches it. It keeps the pressure on as the oppo can recycle the ball.
    Given needs to be drilling him on it.

    I've defended Roos because I think people have turned against him following the playoff gaff (as they did Keogh) but, whether his confidence has drained as a result, I certainly thought he was shaky tonight.
    By accident or design, everything bounced off him. Well, when he made contact with the ball anyhow. There was more than once where he just flapped at the air.

    I agree. Cocu is a) starting to get the injured players back. Holmes looked good tonight.
    b) because he is getting his injured players back , he is starting to get his formation right.
    c) he now needs to get a few games together with the same players and hopefully it will start to click.

    Played well enough and deserved to win the game. Not much luck with the officials but swings and roundabouts.

    Just lacking the quality really. Not a terrible performance but why are we making so many errors? Unbelievably frustrating. 
     
    It's like the team haven't played with each other before, can't control the ball. Can't seem to find the passes correctly.

    I almost want to drag up a post from a few months ago after the Southampton game (I think) when I said people were jumping the gun on Roos and that Carson was the better keeper.
    He's a liability.
    That punch at the end wanted me to return the favor....into his face.
    I think Bielik is showing some promise pushing forward.

    He seems obsessed with punching the ball for no reason when it's easier to catch it
    Then when he does manage to make contact he gets no distance on it whatsoever 
    Surely we have a goalkeeping coach

    I disagree. Cardiff have so few ideas that they send their 6ft5 centre half forward for throw ins. They're the same old Cardiff: play for set pieces and put the opposition under pressure through sheer physicality.

    Some good play in patches. Clarke looking shaky on the ball. 
    Holmes the main threat. As he has tired, so Cardiff have taken control of the game.

    If a good side starts with the keeper then Roos is abit average to say the least. Good shot stopper but a flapper at decisive moments. Not a bad first half but not a good one either. All to play for 2nd half.

    There have been some bright passages of play but so many misplaced passes, notably from our defence. 
    Holmes has been bright and i think if we can keep the ball on the ground we can take them apart. 
    However, even though they are 20 times better than us in the air we are punting it straight to their centre halves and giving away set pieces. 
    Brainless at times but bizarrely i still think we'll win!

    Dont think this is as bad as half of you are making out. We've looked alright going forward at times, but Clarke and Roos have both been poor so far. Waghorn is also providing very little in terms of width on the right. Holmes, Bielik, Lowe and Malone have looked great though.
