SPIRITED CARDIFF SHOW CAN DRAW CVs
THOUGH a point does little to improve Cardiff’s league position, their battling performance was a great advert to prospective managers.
Whether or not the fighting spirit – and no little quality – shown by the players will be enough to persuade those with good CVs to risk the interference and wrath of chairman Vincent Tan, however, remains to be seen.
Perhaps Tan picked the team for this game? If so, the man himself might be in the frame to takeover! Rule nothing out in this soap opera.
In all seriousness, who- ever they appoint, Steve McClaren expects Cardiff to rival them for promotion.
They are, after all, only six points outside the top six and – at the time of writing – Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade is favourite to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. For Derby, four points dropped from their last two home outings has put a dent in their promotion ambitions. However, McClaren is right to remain confident in his team’s credentials.
