"You used to be British/Welsh" chants next season? Or would that be racist?
New Wales kit?
Ugly scenes at a "Keep Cardiff Blue" protest meeting tonight. Threats of violence against the pro-blue fans, believe it or not!
Tweets from a WalesOnline journalist:
I have just been to the Keep Cardiff Blue meeting. Fans turning on each other and some very angry exchanges. Very sad.
They've got a big, big problem on their hands. I have never seen anything quite like it.
What a mess. Not how you want to start the season.
You'd have thought it was only Forest who had crazy owners according to some journalists anyway
I still dont get why the owners could only invest if the club changed its colours and badge.
Theyve sort of held the fans to ransom there, by implying the club could face financial difficulties if the fans go against changing colour.
ha ha! couldn't give a fuck about Cardiff, i hope their owners nob off back to Malaysia and leave the cheating fuckers in the shit
I'm quite ambivalent about this - on the one hand I'm horrified that an owner would come in and fuck about with the crest and team colours as a condition of his investment.
However, it's not like clubs haven't changed crests and colours before, probably like this to flatter the ego of an owner or chairman, but without the funding - over time the shockwaves dissipate and people support the new colour/crest just as they did before.
We've always had the red shirt, but we've changed crest numerous times (admittedly we had to move away from the City crest due to copyright - but look what a happy tribulation that was, because it gave us our current AWESOME badge )
Its not the change thats the problem imo, its the way the owner then played the "we wont invest anything, and the club may struggle financially" card to force the fans hand.
Rather than engaging in constructive discussions, it jumped to a thinly veiled threat.

Every town has its ups and down
Sometime ups outnumber the downs
But not in Nottingham
The Glory of Forest - out now in some good book shops!
I saw something on twitter a couple of days ago of an interveiw with Robbie Earnshew.
It showed a photo of him from said interveiw and I think it was in the Cardiff City Stadium.Funny thing was and is that even though the shirt colour might have changed from blue to red the colour of the seating(in the photo) was still blue.Do they have plans to change the seating colour??,if not this will look rather odd if they dont get a full house and there are empty blue seats everywhere,
Leeds all white kit was introduced by Don Revie in 1961 - previously yellow and blue halfed shirts. It's not unknown for clubs to change, but changing the badge as well it quite a shift given that the club nickname was 'the Bluebirds' cos of the shirt and badge.
Why put a timescale on it?Originally Posted by Alex
We can now buy one of their supporters on ebay
Didn't they change it to be original?Originally Posted by congo_red
As much as i dislike Cardiff all the fans have got to do is buy the away shirt (blue) and boycott the red one.
That tash is shocking!
Fawaz has more style than that.
