Annis Abraham : Stand up for the boys in blue

My View/Opinion.


Cardiff Fans were the 12th man today.

Cardiff City 1 Fulham 0

Crowd 22,515

CardiffCity: Moore, Brayford, Malone, Turner, Morrison, Adeyemi, Gunnarsson, Whittingham, Noone, Le Fondre, Jones.

Subs : Wilson, John, Ralls, Connolly, Kim, Harris and Revell.

Cardiff City players ran out in their proud Blue Kits to an electric atmosphere and a stadium full of Blue other than a few hundred Fulham fans who clapped our return to Blue.

After a shocking Christmas period, the Bluebirds welcomed the Cottagers to the Welsh capital in 12th place with their opponents today down in 17th, albeit just three points behind. Fulham like Cardiff have been very inconstant this season.

City players started brightly and Le Fondre was brought down in the 5th minute which looked odds on for a sending off,but some how the ref only gave a yellow card.

On the pitch the game went quite for a while,then what looks like an own goal, City took the lead 1-0, Ali announced it as a Sean Morrison goal? City players seemed to have a new spark about them and looked like they wanted to win this game, but to be honest I thought the rest of the first half both clubs attempts on goals were both poor from either side.

Over all City deserved to go in winning at half-time.

Half-time 1-0

City’s new signing came came on for the second half to replace Kenwyne Jones.

Was the game exciting,no but City players were battling and never looked tired.

Cardiff fans continued to sing ” Stand up for the Boys in Blue “.

Really I dont think it really mattered about how we played today,as our fans were just proud to be Blue again.

Previous games like today,we would of lost.

Personally I feel a lot of work needs to be done if we are going to go up the League.

Malone came off for Declan John in the 80th minute.

My man of the match John Brayford.
The work rate was there today,entertainment? No but WE WON IN BLUE.


At the final whistle City players went off to cheers and ” the Boys are back in Blue “.

Up next a long trip to Norwich City.
