Can't believe he took the job in the first place.


Why?

Premier League club with plenty of financial backing plus the fact that he knows the chairman.

All that stuff that's come out about Mackay/Moody has surely changed your opinion of Tan as an owner he had no choice but to sack those two clowns they were effectively stealing his money via agents while sending each other racist/sexist "banter" using the company mobiles.

Yes he's a bit of a character with the whole changing the club colours thing but surely now the sacking of Mackay/Moody looks like a completly rational well informed decision just sadly because of all the legal stuff that goes with it they had to sit in silence until they had them completely banged to rights.

The top 7 were never going to come for Solskjaer so he took a punt with Cardiff and it didn't work out for him but that can happen at any club in the PL

It was a club on the way down, already struggling, yes the owner was right to sack McKay but that doesn't mean can't also be a prat. I still suspect he is. And I bet they go through some managers for a while.

I agree with serb he shouldn't have gone there, it was as mad as the Blackburn opportunity he turned down... Villa would have made more sense.

I think he'll struggle now, certainly can't see him ever getting the United job like people were touting him around for.

West Ham's Ravel Morrison has joined Cardiff City on a three-month loan deal.

The 21-year-old former Manchester United midfielder has been out of favour at Upton Park for some time amid well-documented personal issues.

The player announced his move on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, stating: ''Happy to get a three-month loan @CardiffCityFC. Time to start playing some football again.''

Manchester-born Morrison was considered one of the most talented youngsters to have come out Old Trafford's academy, but he made only three substitute appearances in the League Cup under Sir Alex Ferguson before moving to the Hammers in January 2012.

The England Under-21 international has started only 12 Premier League games in over two-and-a-half years in East London, with previous loan spells at Birmingham and QPR.

Morrison has appeared just twice this season, against Sheffield United in the Capital One Cup and Southampton in the league. He could make his debut for managerless Cardiff in the Sky Bet Championship at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Cardiff City's board members will boycott Tuesday's Championship game at Wigan in protest at what they allege to be a club owned and managed by racists.

At least two members of the board were planning to travel but owner Vincent Tan has instructed them not to and they are said to support his position.

Wigan owner Dave Whelan was fined £50,000 for making racist comments about Jewish and Chinese people and served a six-week ban from football.

Wigan declined to comment on Tuesday.

The Football Association disciplinary commission that punished Latics owner Whelan said it was "satisfied" he "is not a racist" and that he had not intended to cause offence.

The 78-year-old's comments were made as he defended the appointment of Malky Mackay as the new Latics manager in November.

Mackay is currently under investigation by the FA regarding allegations he sent "sexist, racist and homophobic" text messages during his time in charge of Cardiff.

The Scot admitted sending offensive messages and apologised, adding that he is not racist, sexist, homophobic or anti-Semitic.

Mackay was sacked by the Bluebirds in December 2013.


Will be interesting to see how the fans react to Mackay as they were obviously all on his side when he was first sacked but will they have changed their opinion of the man now the truth has come out.

Neil Warnock has been appointed manager of Cardiff City following Paul Trollope's sacking.

Trollope was dismissed on Tuesday after less than five months in charge, with Cardiff second bottom of the table after two wins from 11 games.

Former Sheffield United boss Warnock, 67, helped Rotherham avoid relegation from the division last season, but turned down the chance to stay.

Kevin Blackwell will be assistant and Ronnie Jepson first-team coach.

Existing staff members James Rowberry, Martyn Margetson and Lee Southernwood will continue as part of Warnock's back-room team.

Cardiff is Warnock's 15th club as a manger.

The Englishman spent eight seasons in charge of Sheffield United, has twice managed Crystal Palace and QPR, and was also boss of Leeds United.

Former Cardiff defender Danny Gabbidon, who played under Warnock at QPR, said before Warnock's appointment that he "could be a nice fit" to "get the team up and running quickly".

He added: "He's a very good man-manager. He's good at working on a tight budget and getting the right players in. He's also proven in that division."

Trollope's assistant, Lennie Lawrence, and conditioning coach Ryland Morgan have also left the Welsh club.


Like a turd that won't flush Colin has found himself another job.
