Saints Fan's View On Cardiff Clash

Saints Fan's View On Cardiff Clash

Vital Cardiff City spoke to Southampton Fan Chris this week ahead of the trip to face The Saints this weekend:



Are you happy with your departures / signings ?


A little disappointed until the loan captures of Davies and Ifil recently - hopefully we can tie up permanent deals and start to build a more settled squad. Good to sign Saganowski permanently over the summer but losing Bale, Baird and Best was a bugger!




An average start, satisfied so far?



Not really! Haven;t been settled for a while now and the squad hasn't gelled yet. Took a hammering from Preston, but then beat West Brom - need some stability and consistency and well as a drastic improvement to the defensive situation!




Aspirations for this season?


We simply have to finish in Top 10.We should be going for play-offs and with a bit of luck we will be but realistically we have to prepare for a fresh assault next year with a more established group of players.





Saints player to watch, how will they hurt us?


Rasiak is a quality player and top scorer, he may not even be in the side after Stern John got 2 goals against WBA but I would pick him and he will certainly give problems - Cardiff seem to be conceeding lots and you always fancy Rasiak to pop up.





If you could have one Cardiff player on a free, who and why?



Hard to say, our defence has been the problem recently but we've now moved to solve that. I do like the sound of Ledley who seems to have been playing for ever but Sky said he was only 21 - that cant be right! That Thompson bloke scored a screamer against us but he seems to have left you now?




Prediction for the game?


Almost impossible to predict Saints scores these days but I think a corner is being turned and we will settle for a hard fought point - though there will be goals! 3-3 to keep the Sky cameras happy?!?.





Thanks to Chris for his comments.
