The Championship 2011/12 - Cardiff



Club - Cardiff City

Founded - 1899

Nickname - The Bluebirds

Ground - Cardiff City Stadium (Capacity: 26,828)

Manager - Malky Mackay

When we face each other? - Sat 19th November (H) Mon 2nd January (A)

Last Season Finish - 4th - Championship

Season Preview - Cardiff have spent most of this century in the Championship, following their play-off final victory in 2003. Dave Jones took over in 2005 and has seen many high and low times with the club.

One of the highs including an FA Cup Final against Portsmouth, which they eventually lost 1-0. They also came close to promotion the following year with a narrow 3-2 defeat to Blackpool in the 2010 play-off final.

However, failure in the play-off's the following season saw the end of Jones' tenure. Malky Mackay was then appointed as manager, showing his abilities in charge of Watford with a relatively small budget.

Cardiff do have a good infrastructure, but have lost many key players in Chopra, Bothroyd and Bellamy, who helped them get goals on many occasions last season. Although they could make a decent push for the play-off's, I feel other teams have better firepower to beat Cardiff into play-off contention.

My Prediction - 8th
