Cardiff City's Neil Warnock asks for 'minute's booing' at opposing clubs

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has asked for a tribute befitting his hard-earned reputation.

Having assumed and held the role of English football's most prominent pantomime villain for many a year, Neil Warnock is making plans to bow out in appropriate fashion as and when the time comes.

Appearing on Sky Sports' Goals on Sunday programme, the Cardiff City manager jokingly requested that, when he does eventually shuffle off this mortal coil, fans of all opposing clubs pay tribute in a manner befitting his hard-earned reputation.

Rather than the standard minute's silence, Warnock said he...

Former WWE star Kurt Angle supports West Ham; or is that Cardiff?

Former WWE wrestler and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle dropped into West Ham's stadium to check out the venue ahead of the London leg of his ongoing "Audience with" tour.

Impressed by the Hammers' flying start to the Premier League season, Angle was more than happy to swear his allegiance to the claret and blue by proudly holding aloft his own personalised replica shirt.

However, it...

Transfer talks between managers and journalists benefit both sides

Journalists aren't always the ones trying to track down football managers for information. Quite often, it's the managers calling the journalists.

The transfer window is closed until January, but transfer-related activity hasn't stopped. There's always a grapevine of information, as clubs never stop looking at players. They build up as much intelligence on potential players as possible. There's far more to it than merely scouting a talent and making an offer for him, which is what the official protocol would suggest. A buying club would be far happier knowing the player wants to join them before they put a bid in.

I've lost count of the number...

Magath and Solskjaer's demise after drinking from poisoned chalices

Felix Magath oversaw an incredible decline at Fulham.

Felix Magath and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already had something in common. As players, both scored winning goals in European Cup finals: Magath for Hamburg against Juventus in 1983; Solskjaer for Manchester United against Bayern in 1999. Now their managerial ventures in English football share a doomed symmetry.

Their exits happened within hours of each other on Thursday night, and shared a common message. Fulham's sacking of Magath and Solskjaer's axeing (though the line of "mutual consent" was trotted...

End of season review: Cardiff City

Cardiff City have waited 51 years for promotion to the top flight of English football and when the chance finally came they blew it. Fans knew from the start it was going to be a battle to avoid being relegated, but the club self-destructed with a series of high profile public incidents that made the task of staying up impossible. A solid start to the campaign unravelled when the dismissal of Malky Mackay was played out in front of the media. Cardiff were expected to struggle, but the summer signings...

Blue Cardiff exit the Premier League

Fernando Torres netted his first Premier League goal since January as Chelsea finished the campaign with a 2-1 victory at Cardiff.
One man stood in his red Cardiff City shirt as he watched his team lose 2-1 to Chelsea at Cardiff City Stadium. That man, Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan, was in a very small minority as almost all the home crowd proudly wore blue or held aloft blue scarves to make a mockery of the whims of the Malaysian and his desire to play in red. - Report: Cardiff City 1-2 Chelsea

Fans that fell for the "red or dead" threats of two years ago have finally woken up to the reality that Tan is playing games with...
