Cardiff City have enjoyed a fruitful season to date and have emerged as serious play-off contenders after developing into a well organised side with a miserly defence and potent attacking threat. We have improved many areas within the squad and have picked up a mean edge allowing us to grab last minute equalisers or winners rather than throwing it away as in previous seasons.
Suprisingly, the Actim statistics show Cardiff City to be lacking any real star players within the squad and instead rely on teamwork, co-operation and a number of potential match-winners rather than just a couple of star performers. Whilst leaders Wolves have 4 players ranked in the top 15, and no less than 9 players listed in the Championship top 100 - The Bluebirds note only 4 players in the list. Even Swansea City have 6th and lie in a far inferior league position at this stage.
McCormack (20th), Roger Johnson (27th), Joe Ledley (83rd) and Paul Parry (90th) make up those player - thats one defender, one striker and two midfielders making the list for Cardiff City.
There is no place for the likes of McNaughton, Bothroyd or Gyepes - each absolutely vital to our success so far this season.
Sylvain Ebanks-Blake (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Kevin Doyle and Stephen Hunt (Reading) make up the top three players outside the Premiership - hard to argue with that but whilst the stats provide useful background - they tell nothing like the full story and Joe Ledley is a much better prospect for lurking Premiership clubs.
There is a different feeling about this Cardiff City side, former ever-presents like McPhail, Capaldi and Purse have been unceremoniously dropped - on merit too and we look an altogether stronger outfit, pohysically, mentally and technically. Promotion remains well within reach for the Bluebirds and there is a fair chance we could be hosting Premiership football in our shiny new stadium next season.
