Hang on in there Neil! 03:12 - Apr 22 with 3868 viewstimcocking

Another amazing season from Mr Warnock, irrespective of whether Cardiff go up or not. Cardiff weren't doing so well, not expecting a promotion push particularly.

Warnock can be relied upon to keep it nice and simple and at least to pick the right players in the right positions. Ahem.

Agree and he’s still the only bloke to find the key to unlocking Taarabt’s undoubted talent. Hope he gets a chance to go out on his own terms as a premier league manager again.

I'd love to see him get another chance in the Premier, too. If he does get there, I'll wish him better fortune than he had with us.

I'm rooting for Warnock

On paper, Cardiff is a mid-table mediocre Championship team. He's built his team around cast-offs who others didn't want like Hoilett and Sol Bamba. How many players does he have that a Premier League team would want? 2 or 3?

He's built his team around defending and direct football, with tactics like long throw ins. He's also instilled a mental toughness in his team that has led them to squeeze out results.

Phenomenal achievement if he gets this Cardiff side promoted, its extraordinary how he turns up and gives everything and everyone a purpose.

Sadly this club suffers from the opposite, a complete lack of purpose.

Funny, I feel the opposite. I think the club has more purpose and spirit than it's had for many, many years.

Watched a bit of the game last night and Cardiff are not that good. No real stars in the side and little quality and yet they have 86 points. Can’t be many better in history (outside of top league) thanWarnock.

Well it’ll be interesting to see what happens this summer. It’s possible we have midfielders that we can build a team round this pre season, and if we really have a purpose we’ll strengthen the back line and go for a forward who can make a difference.

What I’m expecting though is the club to let this opportunity pass us by, the usual platitudes about our self inflicted FFP position, in fact anything except actually going for it. Club expectations are basically set at keeping our heads above the relegation places, nothing more than that.

I hope I’m wrong and you’re right Brian.

Yes, I saw a bit of it and they didn't look that great. Quite a few giants who can get goals from set pieces. Assuming they do go up it will be interesting to see if Tan does a Burnley and sticks with Warnock through thick or thin.

Surely 'spirit and purpose' is about having a group of players who work hard to bring the best out themselves and each other, irrespective of how much talent they have. The league one promotion team springs to mind. That's the only kind of purpose we can afford these days, and I'm happy enough with that. Beats multi million pound talent sulking and half-arsing about. Much more fun to follow.

I'm prepared for an even tougher year next year financially. It could be brutal.

On and off the field, as long as we're working as hard as we are at the moment I'll be satisfied.

If he gets Cardiff up I think it’ll be a greater achievement than when he got us up.

Wolves have run away with it this year and Look at the run Fulham are on and they’re still above them with a game in hand.

The fact that they’re not a great side with no real outstanding players only emphaiszes the difference he makes with his organisation and motivation skills.

The league 1 promotion team simply had better players than the other teams in the division, including Plymouth. It could be argued that the likes of Gallen, Furlong, Shittu, Carlisle, Ainsworth, Rowlands shouldn't even have been playing at that level.

And we had a huge budget compared to the division average.

Wolves have run away with it this year with their Champions League squad. I'd have fancied Redknapp to have got them promoted (possibly via a spawny play off).

I agree.

I'm with eastherts. You can't deny NW's ability in this division but he's still a tiresome knob as he showed with his hypocritical rant at the Wolves manager. Accused him of having no class. FFS Neil have a look in the mirror mate ! And let's not forget he's in charge of the division's 2nd most revolting club after Millwall. I'd much rather Foolham go up even though it means losing a good away game. I admired his achievements with us but never loved the guy .

Same here.

I don't know about it being the only thing we can afford, but anyway it's what I care about. I would genuinely rather watch what we have now than the team that got promoted under Redknapp (all due respect to Austin and a couple of others).

It's not about low expectations, I have the highest expectations of the club's work in scouting, bringing on players and getting the best out of them, and of the manager when it comes to selection, formation and tactics, substitutions and motivation - and they aren't all being met. But it is getting a lot better.

Proper Championship set up though. Similar to us under Warnock - a strong spine of experienced Championship players (Morrison, Bamba, Ralls, Gunarsson), full backs who keep the onus on defending (Bennett, Peltier), a couple players who have something to prove and can do a little something out of nothing (Hoilett & Mendez-Laing) and an inhereted good striker (Zohore).

They also have a big squad of decent Championship players, people like Tomlin (although cur out on loan), Bryson, Madine, Jamie Ward, Danny Ward, Pilkington, Connolly, Halford, Campy. These guys have been around and although they might not play every week, they can come in and do a job as/when required.

I hope he gets the backing he didn't get from us when promoted and has the chance to make a few more canny signings and have a good go at it. They will need it because a lot of that current team is very basic...

I watched the tail end of their game against Derby and they looked like the tank is almost empty. Will they be able to drag themselves across the automatic promotion line? It's so close between them and Fulham. I keep feeling - hoping - that the fact that automatic promotion is now a real possibility will make Fulham wobble but they plough on and have what is on paper the easiest imaginable game tonight.

Back on Tuesday, Madine fluffed a good chance to make it 2-0 to Cardiff and then the wheels came off. The Cardiff players looked spent and
