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

Roy Keane Tips Cardiff City For Promotion

Cardiff City have been tipped for promotion by a number of 'experts' and pundits, but the Bluebirds players, management and fans have learnt the hard way that expectation and being 'favourites' counts for little.

Another voice was added to those extolling the Bluebirds star-studded squad this week with former Manchester United captain Roy Keane naming Cardiff City as hot favourites to succeed in our promotion bid.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Keane conceded:

'When you look at the squads QPR and Cardiff have, if I were a betting man, I'd say they're the two red hot favourites to go up.'

'It's a massive battle for the other four [play-off spots] but we've got to stay in that battle.'

'We've slipped away in the last couple of games but we need to bounce back.'


Predictions and labels mean absolutely nothing, especially at this point of the season - but that Roy Keane has given up on acheiving a top two place does add some credibility with the feisty Irishman alwasy demanding the very best from himself, his squad and club management.

Ironically, Roy Keane's men are one of two sides to have beaten Cardiff City this season - and it seems evident that most Championship managers would be very happy to keep a clean sheet against us. Ipswich Town beat us 2-0 courtesy of a Matthews o.g. and a Jason Scotland strike.

Keane's jealousy of the Cardiff City squad has continued after he ultimately failed over the summer to sign Michael Chopra, and Ross McCormack. Ipswich are currently in 8th place after collecting just one win in five games.
