Cardiff's season goes off the rails, with three defeats on the trot. Sure, we've got an extensive injury list, but we were supposed to have sorted out the 'strength in depth' issues that plagued as last season. Nothing to worry about quite yet, but we're hoping Warnock has a couple of aces up his sleeve during the transfer window.

I think we can safely say Sheffield United have crashed the train.
Wolves play Bristol City and I feel a lesson in complacency coming up.
In the pub to watch this one on Sky.

Cheer up. You're playing us on Monday. We don't have a striker worth the name, so your boys only need to score first and then lock the door. Easy. :wink:

Well done referee.
The most eagerly awaited game for football fans and the referee wants to be the centre of attention.
Football 0 referee 1

Ruined a great game for a soft tackle.

What a turn of events!
Brizzle keeper sent off.
Wolves bpught on Cavaliero and we were imperious.

Final score Brizzle 1-2 Wolves
10 points clear....

Well I'll be a jiggered. QPR 2 - Cardiff 1. I didn't see that result coming. The first half was forgettable. Nothing to talk about except for the debut game for young Paul Smith. He terrorized Cardiff's defence throughout. The 2nd half started and got better. Cardiff was given what looked like another dodgy penalty (the referees association has already agreed that 3 penalties given against us this season should not have been given).

So 0-1 down our boys went up the other end. Cardiff defenders were tugging and holding our players so they could not react for a set piece. Ref gave nothing. Never mind, they were so busy fouling it freed up our Matt Smith to score a header. Cardiff continued to foul constantly and the ref let most of them go. Then our new boy Paul Smith took off on another blistering run and scored a great goal from a narrow angle and that's how the game finished.

What surprised me was how many chances Cardiff missed. Hey ho!

Reads like a typical Warnock team Patrick.

Some achievements from Macclesfield considering they were pretty much without a team during pre season.

Ha ha. That was not the case when he managed our team Kev but then as he said, he had a better squad back then.
Having beaten Wolves and Sheffield United at home back in October and failing to win at home since then, beating Cardiff was sweet. What made me laugh later was Warnock's moans about the ref. The ref was poor but he allowed Cardiff players to foul throughout the game and gave very little to us. So stop moaning Neil. A section of our supporters sang 'Warnock is a Ranger' on the way out.

Yes 16 in the squad at the start of the season and considering where we're based no one throwing any money about.

Wolves 3 - 0 Brentford

Another in-form side beaten and a clean sheet.
Should have been 5 - 0 up first half but the Bees keeper was brilliant
Two stunning goals in two minutes put the Bees on the back foot.
The Diogo Jota scored the final goal lying on his back!

I can't wait for it to get warmer and then we'll really see some football played by these foreigners thst hate the cold and rain.
:D
Nuno has managed all the nationalities well.
He has strength and depth in the squad.
We have so far avoided injuries, not for the want of trying by some teams.
