wandering across the Net, discovered this and thought it was pretty well done although obviously stops with Woody

they certainly have an interesting site that is obviously run by proper fans. well worth a look at for anyone interested 

 

Crikey - thats not something you expect to see on the forums of other clubs. Really nice job whoever did it.

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

I can't imagine that game getting approved by Hasbro...

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

I don’t know enough about nutrition but this is at least interesting

If true that’s the most Micky mouse attitude from some players. Professional athletes at all levels in all sports know the importance of eating properly.  If some players have been skipping meals just so they can stay in bed longer I’m absolutely flabbergasted.

Yeah it's 100% true mate, we lost to Coventry because a couple of the lads didn't have their breakfast.  Did you read through the article?  No questions popped into your head about it all?  Here's a couple that came to my mind:

"Well, some lads eat at night, then they don't come down for the snacks, they don't want to get up for breakfast, so they don't eat from 6pm to midday the next day.  So you are going to be a bit weak. They have got to look into it a bit more professionally and I think that is what they have done now, since I found out all these little habits"

Why did it only effect them for the Coventry game when Warnock suggests it's something that happens regularly?

"I thought there was something wrong. I knew before the game one of them wasn't right, looking into his eyes. I know that sounds daft but...And I knew straight away within the first ten minutes that the other two were not on their game."

Why didn't you substitute them in that case, Neil?  You knew straight away within the first 10 mins that three players weren't on their game, and you did absolutely nothing about it?  We didn't make a sub until after an hour of play, and if the three players who went off (Ikpeazu, Hernandez, Jones) are the ones we are talking about here, then what's the excuse for some of the other performances like Dijksteel for example?  Not to mention that Ikpeazu is subbed every game?

I have to admit that the bottom of the article tickled me mind.  All the squad is lacking is a long throw merchant and some players who can score from set pieces.  And apparently, he didn't play as much football at his previous clubs as we play here 😀 We are Warnock's footballing side! 🤣

Absolutely off his head but fair play to you Neil 👍

Christ, that's insane. Professional footballers skipping meals because they CBA to get up? Can this really be true? If so, they're clearly not particularly committed to their profession, or to the club. Any fule kno you need slow-release energy throughout the day, especially if you're an "elite" sportsman.

Also interesting that Warnock can tell if someone's had brekky by looking into their eyes. Wonder what else he could tell if he looked at other parts of their anatomy?

I would put money that he didn't actually substitute two of the players that were disappointing him at all, because personally I can't see a world in which two of them weren't Tav and Dijksteel.

In fact post game I'm sure he even name dropped Dijksteel at the time by saying something to the effect of "one of them is Dijksteel, and he's my favourite!"

Now CT has a point and you do have to take everything NW says like this with a huge grain of salt, but I do wonder if he's talking about Tav again here. We've had NW's previous story (excuse?) of Tav doesn't taking warming up seriously, so this doesn't seem like a huge leap.

Lol, biggest load of *** ever.  I think Warnock is trying for some sort of excuse record 🙂

Hardly.

Anyone who knows anything about professional sport knows that nutrition and eating the right food at the right time can make all the difference in performance.

If this is true, it doesn't reflect well on some of our players. They're not good enough that they can afford to sleep in, miss meals or just do their own thing.

Think Warnock is doing the right thing to try and instil a proper routine, that will hopefully ensure they are not short of energy on matchdays.

If nothing else, it will be one less thing he (and they) can blame for poor showings in future.

Maybe the journo had trouble with Warnock's accent and misheard "eyes" as something else? 😁

On a more serious note, you can tell if someone is focused and up for it by looking in their eyes...or by just looking at their behaviour in general. If they're tired, distracted or whatever, it is usually obvious.

Though whether its because they skipped breakfast is another matter...

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
