Go cherry-pick the juiciest post, and then 'Hey, look what Cardiff fans are saying !!!'.
Then go back yourself (if you care) and see if it's representative of the fan base as a whole.

Pretty much this, it was pretty much the only one who said we were a poor side.

One even said we wouldn't look out of place in the prem :shock:

A lot of appreciation for Ovie as well, which was good to see as he ran the show, especially in the first half.

and that was said in the middle of the first half - at that point with us bottom of the table most fans would have thought us to be a poor side (many of our fans included) ... by the end of the game it is a different matter

Confused how Charlton have managed to sign Hemed

Didn’t think a club could cancel the contract and have another team sign the player

If so, maybe there is still hope of shifting Gunter and co this month

Yeah. I thought I read somewhere that it could only happen like that if the contract was cancelled during a transfer window. Unless theres something to do with registration and Brighton didnt register him as a player? Seems odd.

That is correct, the player would have to had to have been released before 5pm on 9th August to be able to be signed outside of this window by a club in the top 2 divisions.

Charlton looking surprisingly spruce after what looks like some astute signings. Going to be a very hard game in a couple of weeks. And I bet the their fans have quietly stopped the moans about their ownership.

The striker they have, Taylor, looks very good.

The odds on Jones at Stoke being the second boss out the door are going down faster than Jack Butland’s transfer value atm

A relatively comfortable if uninspiring Premiership side for a decade, I reckon the Championship has been a massive shock to the system for them. They're soft.

I also think Butland expected to walk back into the Premiership last year and isn't focused.

Watched a bit of the analysis before their game with Preston and they were incredibly open at the back.

You’d certainly fancy scoring a number against them, esp if Butland is throwing them in for you as well

Is there a single player in their squad that you would have here?

Tom Ince maybe and I would have gone for Nick Powell before we found a sack of cash down the back of the sofa but there's a lot of expectation on what is a bang average squad.

Fulham 84% possession in their game, 940 passes to Millwall`s 173.

On paper they have lots of good players; potentially PL level. Clearly things are not well there. Players are unmotivated and used to underperformance and failure. If it keeps going they could be right in a relegation battle; this league will swallow you up and spit you out if you're not up for the fight

I think the likes of Tom Ince are a big part of their problem. Overpaid and massively overrated

From their current side, comparing to ours, wouldn't take a single player I don't think

Rangers fans really do have some weird agenda against Ejaria... every tweet about him from the media is followed up with about 10 of them saying that he couldn't hack it in Scotland and is now in "an easier league". Strange people

It is strange, I'm sure they'll be saying the same when we sell him to Barca for £200m in about 5 years time.

Could've sworn I posted this in the match thread. Woops...
