Much improved Cardiff display but no points to show for it

Today was probably the best Cardiff City have played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he went with the 5-3-2 and the team looked more solid than they have in previous games under him.

That said City didn’t pick up any points and that is what ultimately matters but they were playing a Tottenham side with a real ambition of finishing in the top four.

I am judging today on the last performance and that was far better. Gary Medel was instrumental in breaking up Spurs’ attacking play and the three centre halves worked for me and it is something I would hope Ole goes with in the final ten games.

I didn’t expect anything from today and any point would have been a bonus but it wasn’t to be and I am not too disappointed because my expectations were not that high.

We must beat Fulham at home next week to give us any chance of avoiding the drop and our support needs to replicate what we were like today, the support for the team was excellent and there was unity that has been missing previously.

Strangely I feel optimistic today even though we didn’t earn a point but there were huge improvements. We didn’t create a glut full of chances but we were definitely more organised than in previous games.

Maybe just maybe we will see an upturn in results, starting with the hone match versus Fulham next week but my opinion to City fans is that City played with more desire, better shape and looked far more organised than we have in recent games.
