Hillsborough Heartbreak For Cardiff City

Hillsborough Heartbreak For Cardiff City

Cardiff City capitulated and never looked litke scoring against a relaxed Sheffield Wednesday and it was with barely a a whimper that the Bluebirds surrendered the play-off place that was their to lose and looked all but guaranteed a couple of weeks ago.



City looked a shadow of their former selves in a second half where we were completely second best. The lively Jermaine Johnson got the inevitable goal with a sweetly struck shot from the edge of the area. Roger Johnson missed an open goal from 25 yards but Cardiff didnt deserve anything from the game - did they even want it?



The Cardiff City fans are stunned, Preston and Burnely both did what was required of them - our task was even easier but these were fragile and nervous boys many of whom will either leavfe or be destined for another year of Championship football.



The train wreck that has been the past month for Cardiff City will long be remembered. There are calls for Dave Jones' head, the inquest begins.....

I agree, I think the fans here are desperate for someone to blame. Can't blame one person - this was a team failing

.. lunatic to blame Dave Jones (although some of his midfielder preferences were to say the least puzzling ..) .. so many 'if onlys' - since we miss out on the play-offs simply because we've scored ONE GOAL FEWER than Preston, the 12 goals we conceded in the last FOUR games were crucial .. if only Ross hadn't missed the half-time penalty at Preston, if only Mark Kennedy hadn't scored the headed goal of the season FOR Preston .. and so on and on and on .. but we have ended up with our best finish for [I think] over 30 years - no consolation tonight I know but let's not start finding scapegoats and destroying ourselves in the process .. in the end we just weren't good enough ..
