Can Warnock Pull Of Another Promotion?

Ahead of their visit to Brentford tomorrow night Cardiff City are just three points behind league leaders Wolves. They are already racing against time in a bid to get the promotion spot despite the huge odds against at the beginning of the season. Manager Neil Warnock has been responsible for the promotion drive of seven teams already and there are signs that he would pull off another with Cardiff.

Cardiff were 25/1 on Sky Bet pre season odds with the bookies favouring relegated Premier League side Sunderland and Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday, Reading and even Hull. All the aforementioned sides are now struggling in the league and are in the second half of the log. Cardiff are stable in the second spot, being four points ahead of third-placed Aston Villa.

Warnock is the joint record holder in English football regarding number of teams he has helped get promoted. He holds the record alongside Dave Bassett, Graham Taylor and Jim Smith. With his work on Cardiff, he stands to the chance of resetting that record. The manager did it through the old fashioned way with established values and a capable team.

Warnock links the success on the pitch to managing his dressing room. He ensures the players bond, care and remain committed to each other and it translates on the pitch. He led Scarborough into the professional Football League for the first time back in 1986/87. After the re-election system was abolished, he led the team to win the title and get promoted from the Football Conference to the Fourth Division.

Three years later, Warnock helped Notts County from the Third Division to the playoffs. The following year he took them from the Second Division to the top flight. In 1994/95, Warnock, who was now with Huddersfield, helped the team from the Second Division to the playoffs. The following year, it was with Plymouth from the Third Division to the playoffs.

In 2005/06, he helped Sheffield United to the top flight after a second place finish in the English Championship. In 2010/11 it was Queen Park Rangers turn as they finished winners in the Championship and made it to the Premier League. Maybe it’s Cardiff turn.

It hasn’t been until recently that a new manager has been appointed as it was made announced to the public on October 6 that Russell Slade was the man selected.

The Malaysian businessman and owner of Cardiff City, Vincent Tan made it official to the media that Russell Slade was selected as the new coach after he had asked people around and everyone gave a positive evaluation concerning Russell Slade.

‘’I’m delighted to appoint Russell Slade as the Manager of Cardiff City. I have personally offered Russell this opportunity after giving much thought to the needs of the Club at this point in time and firmly believe that he is the right person for the job. I have spoken to many knowledgeable people in the game about Russell, and the feedback has been extremely positive’’

Slade was actually working with Cardiff City within the internal staff of the club as a consultant ever since he departed from coaching his former club Leyton Orient.

Vincent Tan is hoping that Russell Slade will remain at the head coach of Cardiff City for the upcoming 18 years and hopefully stay even longer in charge of the Championship League club than Arsene Wenger with Arsenal.

Solskjaer Ready To Sign Players If Opportunity Arises

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that he will be ready to sign players on transfer deadline day if a fantastic opportunity arose. Cardiff have already been one of the two clubs in the summer. Aided by the parachute payments that they will receive from the Premier League for the next four years, they have been able to sign the likes of Anthony Pilkington and Sean Morrison. They are expected to be a major part of the club’s bid for returning back to the top flight. After starting the season well, Cardiff failed to take three points against fellow relegated team Fulham.

The 1-1 draw means that Cardiff now have to make up five points towards table leaders Nottingham Forest. Since only five matches have taken place in the championship, Solskjaer will be aware that there is a lot of time to make up, but the squad needs to be in excellent condition. The former Manchester United striker has not ruled out signing players on transfer deadline day, which is something that some clubs tend to avoid as it is viewed as panic buying. The manager spoke in praise of the midfield at Cardiff. There is intense competition in the midfield between the youngster Mats Daehli and veteran Scott Parker.

“I am happy with the squad and if Tuesday comes and we haven’t added another player that will be fine. But if something comes up that’s spectacular and we have to move fast then we will be ready. We will see what the situation is on Tuesday morning. They are two different types of players, but it was a good battle between them. I’ve always been a Scott Parker fan and every footballer can learn from a player of that quality,” said the Cardiff manager, whose team take on Norwich next weekend.
