Fans of English Championship side, Cardiff City have begun a social networking clamour for home-town ace Craig Bellamy.

After losing out on the playoffs, the fans seek a replacement for Russell Slade as Bluebirds’ manager.

Current coach, Slade, has admitted that he is in the dark over his future, with his current deal due to lapse after their game against Birmingham on Saturday. Fans, even popular ones, asked City’s owner Vincent Tan to be bold and ask Bellamy to “re-ignite the fire in the team and the club” for upcoming campaign. Even Slade knows it’s up to Tan to decide his future especially after fans voted him out 84 percent in a fans’ poll.

Abraham, who has been a Bluebirds season-ticket holder for 43 consecutive seasons and who runs the messageboard where the poll was decided said:

“To be honest, there has been quite a bit of talk about Bellamy since October. But after the manner of the weekend defeat at Hillsborough, the clamour has got louder and louder.

“The fans, it seems, want someone to explode this football club, re-ignite their fire and passion. And as a local man, they believe Bellamy is the person to do it.

Bottom of Form

“They are becoming more and more vocal about Bellamy after it was made public that Slade’s contract is coming to an end. Many want a new manager brought in and they name Bellamy as that man.”

Abraham admitted Slade did a lot for the club but the fans just want more and prefers Bellamy to lead the team. Continue reading CARDIFF FANS CLAMOUR FOR CRAIG BELLAMY

Russell Slade wants better Performance from his team

Cardiff City manager Russell Slade has seen his team achieve some impressive results over the last month, but he says that he wants an even better performance when his team take on Birmingham City this weekend.

Cardiff have little to play for in the remainder of the season. After the home match against Birmingham, the club will have only seven matches left in the season. Since we are already 16 points behind the final play-off spots, it is looking unlikely that the players will be motivated going into the weekend. The prospect of relegation has also been avoided for the time being.

Slade says that the team has definitely performed exceptionally well in the recent matches against Bournemouth and Brentford. Cardiff were not expected to get even a point from these two matches against top opposition, but they managed to overcome all odds by getting four points. This was possible after a win over Brentford and a draw against Bournemouth, who currently lead the table. Birmingham have not been going through the same kind of form as their last two opponents, but Slade still considers them as a top opposition nonetheless. There have been several up-and-down some of the campaign, but Slade wants to ensure a strong finish to the season. Continue reading Russell Slade wants better Performance from his team
