Annis Abraham : Cardiff City improving ?

My View/Opinion


So Russell Slade, Scott Young,Morrison and even Marshall say we are improving? ? ?

This surely is a joke?

Slade Why drop Joe Ralls?

Why drop Kennedy?

Cardiff City 1 Charlton 2
Crowd 20,488(incl 950 Charlton fans) Actual attendance approx 14,000.

Moore, Peltier, Connolly, Ecuele Manga, Morrison, Whittingham, Gunnarsson ©, McAleny, Noone, Macheda, Jones.

Subs: Wilson, Fabio, Ralls, O’Keefe, Kennedy, Revell, Doyle.

City had in the last 2 weeks had back to back away wins on their travels for the first time in over 2 years,but now they had to find their home form as their last home win was over 2 months ago v Fulham, the day we returned to Blue.
Charlton started this match 1 point ahead of us in the League Table, with both of us midd table and safe from relegation.

Well for thousands of City Fans,We would like to know where we are improving? ? ?

In our last 17 League games we have won 3 just matches against some of the worst sides in the Championship.
The football has been dire,even when we have won and the crowds are leaving in their thousands.

There is No entertainment , at one point today some fans were falling asleep and I felt like joining them.

Yes some will say Charlton robbed us with a disputed penalty,but remember the other night at Rotherham, it all equals out over a season.

The football today from both poor sides was like there was nothing to play for,which contributed to a dead atmosphere in the ground.

First half,there was no real football and a player who does give his all Gunnarson limped of in the 29th minute,to be replaced by Joe Ralls.

0-0 half-time and the crowd were asleep or were on their way.

After about 8 minutes City started to have a spell and in the 54th minute Kenwyne Jones to Macheda made it 1 nil City.

I thought yes lets now go and beat this poor Charlton team, but no,we let Charlton in to the game and the more the game went on ,the more Charlton were in our half.

74th minute,you could see it coming 1-1.

80th minute Joe Ralls tried to fight back,but shot over the bar.

City then faded and Charlton started to see that we were there for the taking,they poured forward,but I did think we were capable of holding on,when in the 86th minute, a totally controversial penalty gave Charlton a 2-1 win.

I did feel we were robbed,but lets be honest we were awful against an mediocre Charlton side and a draw was all we were really worth.

I keep saying it,Slade has to go and we need to show ambition in the management side ASAP.

My man of the match Bruno Manga.

Up next a difficult away game at Brentford next Saturday.
