Calm down, calm down.

It’s Cardiff City, not Hull City.

Just read a piece on the newly appointed king of Cardiff, Vincent Tan. Remarkably a hero, the villain, now hero again, the man with a bob or two has paid £80,000,000 off a £120,000,000 debt the club had, with er.... Vincent Tan. Nice one.

No doubt some FFP jiggary pokery flying in the Welsh wind (or tax write off), but nevertheless, it’s done n dusted and the taffs are nearly debt free enabling them to buy top notch Prem players like..... Josh Murphy and Greg Cunningham. Exactly.

Still, they are actually playing home games in blue shirts this year so well done Tan for that. Odd he’s a popular bloke now because of that and the financial leg up. Just how popular will Ehab be once pays the debt off and buys 2 unknown herbs?

Seems all might not be harmonious in the Welsh capital though. First game back in the Prem attracted 30k, 3k short of capacity. Perhaps it’s football per se, segregation? or foota not so popular afteralll in Cardiff. Who cares, it’s Cardiff right, though the similarities with our own great club are close enough to see in to the future.... never likely to compete at the top level, owned by a tosspot, was heavily in debt to fund a promotion push and not as important anymore to a reasonably staunch fan base.

Backed Cardiff to finish last. No goals yet but I’m sure Bobby Reid might weigh in with a couple by may.

Noticed they'd left a little red ferret on the base of the badge.

No doubt that pathetic semiotic scribble allows the bloke to hold his head high when he returns to his culture.

Still, a superhero compared to Hull City Council Tigers owner.

Well he certainly donned in some cash, debt to equity, it cannot be denied.

Yeah, the whole Malaysia/Asia thing is a bit of a farce. No one outside of Cardiff gives a good about Cardiff. He knows this but like Abrahmovic, it’s an easy conduit for money he can’t count and it just might be a new passport if the shit hits the fan at home.

Red dragon blah blah is nonsense, but a small price to pay if that was all it is, which it wasn’t of course.

The thing is, Cheats, Tan had a moment for a season and a bit. Our herberts are still persisting with their petty nonsense but telling all and sundry they aren't. All these years on.

It's been prolonged misery, only beaten by the Venky's and Oysten's at Blackburn and Blackpool respectively. 

Now then...

Only 30,000. A lot of envious eyes must have been cast in the direction of the KCOM. 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

We could get 30k on day one of the new Prem season (assuming the ground is big enough, which the Cardiff stadium is due to Tan building an extension). My opinion is, if they can’t fill it then (full away sold) it might be a struggle in Jan when Brighton are in town and they are bottom of the pile. I agree, 30k is not on the KC Xmas list for a long long time.

Don’t disagree with National, Tan learned the lesson but not so many voiced dissent to red shirts and dragons when the going was good. At least at ours the majority said NO to Hull Tigers, despite being booed by fellow “fans”.

I hate hypocrisy, so my view is Tan is still an ogre.

Perhaps the Cardydyyydyyddddd Heddlu insisted on a 3000 seat buffer zone to stop home and away fans getting violent, much as our own beloved Plod did.

Yeah, it's strange how Tan has turned it all around.

I don't think the Allams have the nous, the will, or the wherewithal to do the same at our club.

You've fucked up your legacy big style.

Now then...

They have a hospital wing with “Allam” over the door.

No doubt, it’s a noble donation, though without hoping to come across too cynical, I’d not be surprised to see that develop out of tax efficiency somewhere along the line.

Calling a spade a spade, the football charade was only ever a possibility with EU grants and a Freehold gift from the council. If folk think there was ever a multi million pound investment directly from the Allams they need a cold shower.

In the end, it looks like it was alll a waste of time, though watching Tom Huddlestone in a City shirt and beating the arse off Wednesday at Wembley are decent memories, but so was beating WHU in the cup at BP.

After our last promotion our first game was against reigning champions Leicester City at home at the KCOM. They brought a full compliment of away fans. The attendance was 20,137. What makes you think has changed which would see 10,000 more rolling up?

Oh yeah, I remember, the boycotting fans were in full swing come the start of that season.

Bruce had (finally) seen the Allams for what they were, two or three weeks before the game.

Again, brilliant strategic planning throughout the summer window from the Allams a primary cause.

It's no wonder fans were beginning to turn their backs in droves.

Some, who won't accept we don't have a large fanatical following, said that the novelty of the PL had worn off. Yes after 104 years of waiting for top flight football a fifth season there had become a bit boring and routine.

Perhaps it was feeble results that had become a bit boring and routine, and the Stevie G fans had had their fill of being in the same room as people off the telly. Mind you, I bailed out years before that.

I think most would actually agree with you that the support base isn’t so large. The demographic has changed for football, it’s now firmly a family affair, a tourist event. Some of the point I was hoping to make.

National is correct... 7 professionals on the books, no manager, sale of the club fallen through, owners as revolting as ever, protests planned etc. I was surprised to see so many there for the Leicester game.

We’d be about the same as Cardiff under normal circumstances.
