Woeful Cardiff City Slip To Fifth

Woeful Cardiff City Slip To Fifth

Cardiff City's dismal spell of form has finally seen us fall from the second place we had been clinging to for weeks and after a win for Swansea City, an impressive win for Norwich City over QPR and a late equaliser for Leeds against Boro - the Bluebirds have slipped to fifth place.

Far more worrying than the league position, is the terrible form and after back-to-back defeats against Watford and Bristol City - the Bluebirds look a shadow of their former selves. That's an aggregate of 7-1 from the last two games.

We remain 5 points ahead of Millwall in the final play-off position, while if we were to win our game in hand - we would also jump back ahead of rivals Swansea City. That suggest we remain in a good position, but with the players performing as they are, and the continued lack of an effective system and tactics - Cardiff City are almost in crisis.

The desperately poor form is bitterly disappointing, and we are under-performing to an alarming extent. The transfer window is now open, and hopefully that, and the imminent return of Jay Bothroyd will provide the boost we need to get back-on track. It's thanks to the unpredictable nature of this division that we are still in contention - that won't be the case if this run continues any longer.

Jonesy - sort them out.
