I think we've reinvented the Derby way to something so much more grotesque for the supporters and so much more ammo for everyone else to laugh at us.

@Boroboy, I fully expect you to hammer us, of course there's talk from Rowett and one or two players about showing a reaction against your team but frankly it's not happening, they don't have the attitude to do it, the players anyway, Rowett has a massive rebuilding job in the summer.

I remember this time last year, sitting at the Brown Jelly bar with mackem when we heard the news that Sunderland had been relegated to the Championship
'I'll tell yer sumfink now Kenny' he said taking a SWIg of Newquay Brown' ' there is absolutely, positively NO frigging way we will still be in the Championship at the end of next season!;

I have only one word for mackem (two words to be precise): Norwich City

We did the same and look what happened to us, hopefully the same will happen to Sunderwho

Well **** me, Cardiff did it.

I suppose a 0-0 draw at home to Reading is hardly doing it in style. But then again getting stuffed 3-1 by Birmingham would have been a lot worse. Thank you, Birmingham. I've noe decided I like Birmingham.

Interestingly, back in August the BBC did a championship predictor.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40715451

Cardiff were supposed to come 13th, two places behind Sunderland. On that basis, Cardiff must be the surprise success of the season, and Sunderland the corresponding failures. The predictor at leas got 5 out of the top 6 right. Sheffield Wedesday disappointed.

I almost forgot to check the result as I was watching the Welsh Cup final live on S4C. I can get S4C because I'm close to the border. I'm not sure whether everyone can do that.

@Constantine

My son says I may not get to go in the directors box next season when the Right Stripes come to town because he has switched to Villa (directorships not fandom he has always been a fan of Villa but being employed by a professional Welshman he has also had a lot to do with wales having been a director of Swansea before that.) I ask you what a time to switch!

Well done Cardiff done on a tight budget with good management of resources don't like your manager probably because he has always been good at what he does and his teams normally beat mine!
