    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    Promotion was expected, that was the target set by TM and the club. He does get credit for the promotion - think that has always been clear but lets not pretend that promotion was not the expectation. Kept all his Championship players, largest wage bill in division and was able to spend at least 3x more than anyone else in the division on recruitment. I don't blame TM for the relegation, that mainly falls into the lap of Coyle. That said, TM was brought in with the remit of keeping us up - which he ultimately failed to do.

    Season Restart

    It has been interesting the 5 subs business but longterm it should not happen. Clubs are already up against it and now they will have to ensure that they have even more players of sufficient quality to be able to compete each matchday. As said above, gives an advantage to bigger/richer clubs that have far deeper squads.

    At least there was something to hang on to with AA. He had previously notched 20+(?) goals in L1 under TM and had lightning pace. The only question was whether he could step that up to Championship level. Previous loans to Champs clubs suggested otherwise but the lad was/is still young. It seemed a perfectly reasonable gamble to take the kid in permanently for a couple mil. As we know now, it is a gamble that should pay off.14 goals is it so far this season? Decent chance of getting close to 20? Players that notch those sort of numbers in this league start to attract admirers, especially those with age on their side which represents the potential for increased sell-on potential. On the flip side we spent 7 million quid on BB and had nothing but a short highlight reel to hold on to. Younger admittedly, and still with the chance to change our minds but he hasnever scored goals anywhere, let alone consistently at any level.

    While not ballers in terms of being at PL level, I think from being promoted to the first team squad and becoming one of the best players in the first team squad within a season or two can only be deemed success. Lenihan, Travis and Nyambe certainly fall into that category. If Buckley and JRC and perhaps a few others follow suit in the next season or two - thats more success stories. Lets not forget Raya who split opinion too - decent chance he might become what I always said he would a PL keeper one day.

    Quick look at some Cardiff forums - some realistic and balanced views in general. None of this we should be beating teams like Blackburn malarky. Most admit that we out thought and outfought them - doing to them what they usually do to others. Let the CBs have it before pressing them into mistakes when playing it out. They complained that Harris did not change things to cope with our tactical changes after the break which swung the game into our favour. Also complained that Harris should have made his subs much earlier than the last 15 minutes. They were not happy with their CB Curtis Nelson - saying the young lad Samuel ran him ragged all night. As an aside, Mendez-Laing was out for them due to his wife going into labour. This surely shows that players are instructed to plan babies for the off season. He was not held responsible for the defeat in the same way that some felt Lenihan was.

    What is going on with the coaching at the club? Specifically with Nyambe, surely they should have been working on his end product (shooting/crossing) for the past season or two - it has always been the only thing holding him back from being an excellent full back. That chance from the excellent low cross from AA was easier to score then miss. So frustrating that he never just whips a cross in and instead cuts back.

    Was very pleased that JRC had probably his best game for us so far and showed that he should definitely be a part of the first team squad going forward permanently. My only worry with him is that we suddenly turn him into the answer at LB - sure he is far better than EB there (not difficult) but I would prefer to see him given an extended chance further forward. Sometimes, being so versatile (a utility player if you like) can be detrimental to the progress of a player.

    Yup that is one area I have been disappointed with him. Mulgrew was far better. Strange really as his crossing ability is usually good in open play.
