Paul Trollope may be the best option

‘ Paul Trollope may be the best option ‘

By Carl Curtis

From the first minute Russell Slade was moved upstairs I believed that Paul Trollope would be the choice of the club to takeover, so I wasn’t surprised to be told a week ago that Trollope was Vincent Tan’s number one target.

Whether or not he is the ‘cheap option’ is irrelevant to me, he is the new manager of Cardiff City.

Whoever the manager is at the club this coming season they have a difficult summer ahead them that’s for sure, there will be high earners moved on, there is unlikely to be a big budget to spend on incoming players and I do wonder if Trollope is best suited to know what players the first team needs to strengthen our cause for next season.

There was a definite improvement in our performances when Trollope came in, we have heard that players rate Trollope highly as a coach too.

I am not suggesting Paul Trollope would have been my number choice of manager but I don’t think it is as bad an appointment as some are making out.

The more I read of Trollope’s comments the more I think he could just do something, he is not shying away from targeting the play offs or even top four, he has told everyone that he is not Russell Slade and shouldn’t be compared to the outgoing manager either.

I will be backing Trollope as Cardiff City manager and hope every fan gives him a chance and not dismiss him before
