Annis Abraham : Resilient Cardiff City

My View/Opinion


Still not great football, but showing signs of a time up for it and fighting for every point  :thumbright:  :thumbright:

Bournemouth had most of the possesion,but City worthy of a point for their never say die attitude  :thumbright:  :thumbright:  :bluescarf:  :ayatollah:

The stadium looked the emptiest for many a year.

Cardiff City 1 Bournemouth 1

Crowd 19,819

Cardiff City Team : Moore, Fabio, Ecuele Manga, Morrison, Connolly, Whittingham, Gunnarsson, Noone, Kennedy, Jones, Revell.

Subs: Wilson, Malone, Gabbidon, Adeyemi, Ralls, O’Keefe, Doyle

Tonight City faced top of the Championship Bournemouth,who had also scored 78 goals this season  :shock:

City went in to this game after 3 away wins on the trot,but had not won at home for 5 games including 3 defeats,tonight was going to be tough.

Could we cause another shock just like at Brentford on Saturday?we were about to see.

City players ran out to a more than dead stadium, other than the Bournemouth fans making a noise  :cry:
Bournemouth came at Cardiff from the first second and within 5 minutes hit the crossbar after Kennedy lost the ball. :o

After about 10 minutes Cardiff took the game to Bournemouth and for a 2 minute period played decent football, then bang a 25 yard shot from Bournemouth beat Moore, 1 nil Bournemouth.  :cry:

It was all Bournemouth now and City looked set for a hammering  :shock:

But as the last 10 minutes of the first half came to a close, Cardiff finally took control. Whittingham had a corner headed towards goal by Manga, saved by Boruc. Craig Noone then curled the rebound inches wide. :ayatollah:

Morrison then came close, City at last alive  :ayatollah:  :ayatollah:

City showed they can play and for a full 10 minutes and injury time we certainly did :ayatollah: What was worrying me was when Bournemouth upped their game,we looked terrible,not closing down and even Manga getting beat  :shock:

To be fair to Revell he worked hard,yet Kenwyne looked totally not interested.

Half-time City 0 Bournemouth 1

Bournemouth started like they did in the first half and hit the post within minutes.

Then went in to a stalemate.

City then got in to the game and a Whittingham corner to Manga 8 yards out,header centre of the goal, bang 1-1  :thumbright:  :ayatollah::ayatollah:  :ayatollah:  :ayatollah:

City improving as the game went on and now worthy of a draw  :thumbright:

Final minutes all Bournemouth, but thankfully City hold out.

1-1  :thumbright:  :ayatollah:  :bluescarf:

My man of the Match Fabio or Ravell :thumbright:

Up next Birmingham home this Saturday  :thumbright:
