Leaky Cardiff Dominates The Headlines

Leaky Cardiff Dominates The Headlines

Following on from the Vincent Tan and Palace spying stories, it appears Cardiff need a new plumber as we have been leaking all season long apparently.

In no particular order as I have way too many windows open for my own good at the moment, Steven Caulker has told Sky Sports that leaks have been a problem at the club on a 'regular' basis unfortunately.

The skipper gave his interview presumably after it was known that chairman Mehmet Dalman had contacted the Premier League over Palacegate and his words will now be added to the mix.

Palace have categorically denied the claims in their direction and Caulker doesn't deal with that specifically saying.

'To be honest, there have been problems like that all season where certain things have been leaked. For me it's frustrating. We need to focus on getting things right on the pitch, not what's going on off the pitch. It has obviously come from somewhere. That's down to the gaffer and the staff above him to sort out, and we can just focus on playing football.'

Caulker goes on to say that this will be the message he gives to the players ahead of the game this weekend, they cannot think about any off pitch nonsenses they have to focus purely on getting three points and giving us a shot of staying up this campaign.

'A lot of stuff has been going on off the pitch all season, and that has been highlighted in the press. It's important we all ignore all that stuff, our performances have not been up to scratch of late.'

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has also categorically denied that any leak's have come from the squad, saying he has no reason to 'doubt any player's professionalism, honesty, integrity or loyalty.'

Refusing pretty much to comment any further on the Palace issues, saying that was for the Chairman to deal with, his focus was on preparing the team for Southampton but he did also add that the team are united together in their battle at the moment.

With Cardiff claiming that they have 'concrete evidence' of their claims, it has also been announced tonight in the press that an unnamed member of our backroom team has now been dismissed by the club, and it's further speculated that two others may be under internal investigations.

No doubt the Premier League will have all the available information on this, and presumably the other issues that Caulker references, when they look into this, and we will have to await their findings as non of us will really know what's going on here.

But again, it's another off pitch issue playing out in the press as it no doubt will now and it just becomes another distraction that hasn't been needed this campaign.
