Liverpool won the Carling Cup yesterday after beating Cardiff City on penalties at Wembley Stadium, but for one little Scouser it all could have gone wrong as poked himself in the eye…

101 ways to annoy Cardiff City fans: #44 Change your mind about signing for them

Oh dear Marcus. Oh dear oh dear. You may be “friendly” with Gemma Atkinson (bravo by the way), but I don’t think you’ll be welcomed with open arms at Ninian Park this season. Tsk tsk.

Before you next criticise Doncaster, Munby et al you might want to read this news from Cardiff…

From BBC Sport: Cardiff City chairman Peter Ridsdale received a £500,000 bonus during a period when the club lost almost £4.7m. The payment was made for renegotiating the terms of a loan owed by last season’s FA Cup finalists and getting the new stadium project up and running. The accounts for the 12 months to […]

2007/08 Review: February – featuring Preston, Cardiff, Hull, Leicester and Barnsley

Darel Russell’s injury-time stunner against Preston gave City the perfect start to February in a game low on quality but high on tension. Another late goal – this time a 35-yard screamer from Ched Evans – gave the Canaries a 2-1 win at Ninian Park a week later. Welshman Evans had given City a 15th […]

2007/08 Review: September – featuring Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Wolves, Manchester City and Sheffield Wednesday

City’s 100% home record was the first thing to go as September turned out to be a miserable month for all Canary supporters. Cardiff performed the classic smash-and grab raid at Carrow Road on 1st September to win 2-1. Simon Lappin got the hosts off to the perfect start after 12 minutes, but the Bluebirds […]

FA Cup Final Poll Results: Portsmouth of Cardiff City?

The results are is: Who will win the FA Cup? Portsmouth – 82% Cardiff – 18% I knew Pompey were favourites but I didn’t think the poll would be quite so one-sided – but I’m sure that’ll suit the Bluebirds just fine. Less than half an hour to go now…

The Road to Wembley 2008: Cardiff City

One of my favourite parts of Cup Final Day always used to be the segments on the “Road to Wembley”. Here’s Cardiff’s (with a little bit of naughty language)… Part One [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UDRWHQ8aKY] Part Two [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=affiCedddE0&feature=related]

FA Cup Final Preview: Portsmouth v Cardiff City

It’s the biggest day on the English football calendar – FA Cup Final day. When I was growing up the FA Cup Final really was a full day of brilliant build-up leading to the game. That’s all kind of been diluted these days with the advent of satellite television and round-the-clock televised matches, but if […]

FA Cup Final Poll: Portsmouth or Cardiff City?

The FA Cup Final is this Saturday, but who do you think will win? Make your vote count in the poll. Poll: Who will win the FA Cup? Voting will close on Saturday morning.

You’re not the only one ‘Arry…

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is said to be puzzled by the Welsh FA’s decision to overturn the red card Darren Purse received for putting a nice hole in Andy Cole’s leg, thus making him now available for the FA Cup Final: I do not want to see the boy missing the FA Cup final but […]

The Week in Review: 21st-27th April 2008

Monday 21st April 2008. On Monday we speculated on the reasons for Kieran GIbbs starting against West Brom, and looked at the possibility of Darren Huckerby staying at the club on a pay-as-you-play deal. Tuesday 22nd April 2008. On Tuesday we had a look at the week’s Champions League action, and pondered the future of Alex Pearce. […]

Political Correctless Gone Mad 2 The FA 0

They’ve well and truly done it this time. The bottlers at the Football Association have, in their infinite wisdom, come to two ridiculous decisions: Should Cardiff win the FA Cup next month, they will represent England in the UEFA Cup next season. The Welsh National Anthem will be played before the game. The first point […]

It’s our Cup Final, it’s our anthem. Simple.

The Welsh Sports Minister (I know, I didn’t know they had one either) Rhodri Glyn Thomas has called for “common sense to prevail” and for the Welsh National Anthem to be played before the FA Cup Final. He said: I hope the FA is going to be sensible about things because there will be great […]
