Ole - Still Confident & Staying Put

Ole - Still Confident & Staying Put

Fresh from talking about a corner being turned, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains just as upbeat following our last gasp loss to Everton as he believes our overall performance and the fact we were desperately unlucky to have lost given that showing is proof that we are on an upward curve and can expect the points we need in the coming weeks - obviously the caveat is as long as we continue to play like that and give our all.

Speaking to Wales Online following the game, Ole also commented that regardless of what happened he would remain loyal to the club and would be our manager irrespective next season.

'We each want to keep our place in the Premier League, but no matter what happens I will be here for the future. I can promise to be 100% loyal. Everybody knows that continuity is the key factor to success.'

With that continuity it clearly helps that Ole has 'sensed a great buzz for Wales from the start' and he goes on to praise the supporters, the welcome he has received and the passion with which the club is followed, especially with our struggles this campaign so far.

So as for our Premiership future which is the aim.

'My focus is on doing everything possible, we have big challenges ahead, but we are ready for those. Nobody at Cardiff doubts we can keep our place, and we have eight cup finals in which to achieve that.'

Despite our, and David Marshall's best efforts especially, the result wasn't what we wanted and it has made life a touch harder, but I can tend to see where Ole is coming from in the 'turning corner' stakes as I don't feel it would've been overly unfair to have come out with a point despite Everton's greater chances - ultimately that's why teams try and find such a special goalkeeper and it's their job to keep chances out and it's not unfair when they do so.

But other results didn't exactly fall for us on the day, and other teams in the pack above have edged away slightly but it is still only three points and we are out - but we have to make the games count now because we have to factor in the fact Sunderland have a couple in hand, and a couple of those above us also have a game in hand and we don't want that to return and bite us.

Liverpool might not be nice to us, but the fixtures then do ease somewhat in terms of playing those teams around us and it is mainly those games we have to get something from and win, so it's still more than doable.

March isn't going to decide our fate with how tight the table continues to be, but the run in April certainly will do in my humble.
