The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY -

FRUS­TRA­TION all round at my old club Cardiff. Like QPR, it’s been one long hang­over since rel­e­ga­tion from the Pre­mier League.

You’ve had a big turnover of play­ers, bud­gets be­ing cut, man­agers com­ing and go­ing, the furore over the kit.

Fans at the minute are just a bit dis­il­lu­sioned be­cause they can’t see any sense of di­rec­tion, on or off the pitch.

In fair­ness, they have im­proved un­der Rus­sell Slade. De­fen­sively, they’re a lot tighter. But Joe Ma­son aside, they are lack­ing goals and a cre­ative spark.

If they want to make the play-offs, they need re­in­force­ments in that area. Sadly, from what I hear, I don’t think Rus­sell will get much money for play­ers in Jan­uary.

All Rus­sell can do is try and get a bit of im­prove­ment out of them. And it is there be­cause I know for a fact that some of those play­ers have ex­tra gears in them. They need to step up.
