'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Swansea Fan's View On Cardiff City Clash

Aspirations for the season ? Happy with the start?

Some people thought we'd do well to stay up, I always thought mid-table was a far more likely position for us so to be in with a chance of the play-offs is satisfying as well as the most entertaining football in the division!


How badly do you think losing Bodde will affect you?

He's our best player put simply. That said, we have players like Pratley and Brittain who are doing really well too while we actually expected Bodde to leave in the summer. Tudur-Jones is hopefully fit now so we have a ready made replacement. We will miss the cash we would have had in January though - if we had strengthened with a new defender and striker as well as replacement for him - we could have done really well.


Do you think the Carling Cup win gives a psychological advantage?

That was a while ago and derby games depend on so much. I wouldn't say it's an important factor and the league game is far far more important.


Player to watch Sunday?

I'm of the opinion that Rangel will be a big player for this game. I saw Kennedy at left-back for you on TV and he looked hopeless to me. You may not have Ledley back so Rangel's overlapping runs could cause no end of problems.


If you could have one Cardiff City player on a free - who and why?

Until the game on TV recently I would have said Roger Johnson but now I'd take Chopra - if we had an out-and-out striker we'd be scoring a lot more goals and take pressure off our defense.


Prediction for the game?

A home win is a no brainer! 2-0 to the Swans.
