Cardiff City Director Appeals For Optimism

Cardiff City Director Appeals For Optimism

Cardiff City director U-Jiun Tan has written an interesting and well-received e-mail to the Cardiff City Supporters Trust in which he offers his back to Dave JOnes, and reveals his optimism and enthusiasm for our position and the rest of the season. The e-mail was sent privately, but after a request by the Trust, U-Jian consented to the e-mail being published.

Included in the e-mail were:

I share your concerns on the recent performance of our team and 8 points out of a potential 30 does not bode well. However I still feel that we are in a good position regardless of how our present form has been.

We are committed to giving Dave the resources necessary to see us through this marathon and ultimately that is what a January transfer window is for, to tweak or improve the squad.

I`m also quite excited with the arrival of Jon Parkin, as he really looks like a beast and I think he will suit our style of play very well.

I personally believe that once we shore up our defence, we will be raring to go again. We have also made clear to Dave that the funds necessary to get suitable centre backs are there for him.



The e-mail represents a welcome and encouraging sign of our current position, and our possibilities going forward to build on the promising position we are in. It should be made clear that U-Jiun was speaking in a personal capacity and not on behalf of the board.
