The Cardiff Choke Countdown.

Say it quietly, but is it finally time for Cardiff to get promoted? Surely even they can't choke a 10 point lead in February... can they?

Two Welsh teams in the PL!? It's an awwwwwwtrage!

Not this time IMO.

Lets be honest if there was ever a team in the chump that deserved a crack at the Prem, then its Cardiff. Every year pretty much they are top 6.

Still a bit too early in their season to wager any money on yet

But, at the same time they've thrown away commanding positions in most of those seasons. They should really have made it up before now, so it's about time. But the potential for throwing it away again makes this an interesting run-in to watch IMO.

They'e not thrown away as commanding a position at this time in the season though.

Not happy with over 10% of the English Premier League being Welsh next season.

Not much to be frightened of in the chasing pack so they probably only need a point a game to stagger over the line.

I'm so anti "EPL" that I'm actually keen to taff it up a bit.

Anyway, yeah, they'll do it this time. It's the change to red that's done it. There was a study a couple of years ago that showed that, in all sports (not just football or English football), teams that played in red were statistically more successful than any other individual colour.


I'd cite it properly but that precis should do it.
