My View/Opinion

By Annis Abraham


For me when it really mattered and when the pressure was on just to reach 6th place Russell Slade in my opinion did not know how to cope with it,be it the pressure or on how to change his tactics and thats why Cardiff City failed to even just reach the play-offs in a Championship that was very mediocre this season,with no real runaway team.

The six truly vital games yielded a miserable total of five points – all of these came at home to ensure that City’s impressive record of having lost only twice at Cardiff City Stadium was maintained, but they were only good enough to beat bottom team Bolton, who had been playing with ten men for around an hour, thanks to a penalty deep into added time.

Away from home, it was losses all of the way as City subsided disappointedly at Fulham and Brentford and, to all intents and purposes, didn’t turn up for the “Play Off showdown” at Sheffield Wednesday which ended in their heaviest defeat of the campaign.

So for me,we were never ever really in it to make the top 6 and did not deserve it.

I honestly believe we should thanks Russell Slade for bringing stability on and off the pitch but thats as far as Slade can take us.
So I would not be making Slade head of Football, as a good manager would not look up to him.

Ive also been thinking,the manager answers to Ken Choo,then Dalman,then of course Vincent Tan.

So what really will Russell Slades job be?
Apparently Slade himself does not know?
