A more sensible approach needed
Ignore the official attendance, tonight The Valley could see the most empty seats since we returned in 1992. I have total respect for those who continue to show up and back the team, although one would presume the club's efforts to 'sell' season tickets to these fans is like selling hamburgers to Americans. It is of course the stay-aways that need convincing.
For Cardiff's part, they are almost guaranteed a play-off spot, but I wonder how many Welshmen will make the trip tonight after their freak 6-0 defeat at Preston on Saturday?
As I said after the Blackpool game there is no reason to play Butterfeet, ZZ, Ward or Kandol tonight. Tuna did enough for me on Saturday to warrant a start, preferably in a front two with Burton. I would hope the Covered End can come up with something more inventive than the repetitious "Tuna, Tuna"
for the lad. Did anyone else notice how he played off the shoulder of their last defender? Very Darren Bent I thought.
I read with dismay Steve Waggott's page in Saturday's programme. Whether he feels it necessary or not to tell us "it's very much a one-year plan targeting an immediate return to the Championship,"
I don't know but it had me shaking my head. Don't we ever learn? They may as well throw in a free-season ticket as well."Determined that there will be a change for the better,"
is not kidding anyone. I would much rather the board have a simplier target and budget accordingly that we just need to sustain a challenge and any play-off possibilities would be an added bonus. Why do a halfway house restructuring? Forward planning has not been the board's forté in the past and I think most of us would respect a more holistic approach to next season.
