Was there a protest over changing the clubs colours? Saw the end of a news report where it was mentioned again recently...


Seems it may have been + on TV live...

The way people are talking about Gerrard, you'd think he'd died.
Superb player yes, but he's not 6 feet under, he's not even retired, he's only moving clubs.

Go back 15/16 years and that would have been just about Cardiff's biggest crowd of the season....a derby v Swansea getting a couple of hundred more.  Not a nice club, hopefully back to Div 4, or better still LoW asap.

The thing is most of them never seemed to mind when they were in the Premier League; it's only now they're heading down the shitter that the protests are growing.

Most of their fans are new to the game, as Reg points out they used to get 2k away and about 4k at home not so long ago (the 2k were more there for a good fight away).  So I suppose a change in kit and all the other shenanigans don't really annoy them too much and when in the Prem they were in the majority.  Now they start to slip again, the vocal originals start to be heard a little more.  The downside to rapid attendance growth I suppose.

That's simply not true. There were plenty of very vocal protests/marches when they were in the PL. This is the first time they've tried a boycott though AFAIK. And it would seem, very effectively.

It might have been a bit of a generalisation - and of course there were certainly protests in the first season they changed -  but there is no doubt that the protests have been gaining momentum lately and there is a correlation between that and their league position. I know quite a few Cardiff fans who now boycott, apparently because of the kit, who didn't in the PL season.

Clear lack of ambition staying with Liverpool for so long anyway.

The BBC taking the FA cup so seriously that they couldn't be arsed to send a commentator to the Derby games and instead doing something strange with what was obviously radio commentary over the highlights.

I  noticed that too. In fairness, he was a BBC radio commentator - I had 5 live on and off yesterday afternoon alternating with WS and they did keep going to him at Derby - but still a bit tinpot that they apparently forgot to record it separately?

BT Sport suggesting that Swansea knocking Man Utd out of the cup last year is some sort of giant killing!
