Neil Warnock penned a managerial contract with the English League Championship, Cardiff City on October 5 of the ongoing year and in less than a week of being appointed he had already added 4 new players to the club.
Junior Hoilett, Sol Bamba, MarouaneChamakh and Kieran Richardson are all of the players that Cardiff City signed within a week after having lured in Neil Warnock to the club but even though there has been a significant amount of players being signed and changes being done since the arrival of Warnock, Cardiff City are being tipped as one of the clubs that will be finishing at the bottom spots of the English League Championship.
Out of the 7 opening matches of the English League Championship of this current season, Cardiff City sustained 5 defeats, 1 draw and 1 victory. This is the start of the season that Cardiff experienced under the tutelage of their former manager Paul Trollope and it’s because of this underwhelming kick to their campaign that Cardiff City are still being tipped to finish in the bottom relegation zone and why they had to make a recent managerial change.
So far, 13 league matches have been played and Cardiff City are currently positioned at the 22nd spot with 12 points collected at this point in time and Neil Warnock is hoping that with these recent signings it can help them start climbing spots and avoid getting relegated but it seems like they aren’t favorites of even surviving for another season in the 2nd tier English football league.
Climbing away from the relegation zone is the priority of Neil Warnock which is still certainly a possible achievement as there is plenty of time left in this season but after having gone through such an underwhelming start of season, it also appears to have affected their morale and energy in the pitch, which is something that Neil Warnock is hoping to change.
