"Time for Cardiff to take a leaf out of Liverpool's book of footballing dark arts and pull out all the stops and win at all costs. To be blunt, its called gamesmanship, which a certain Mr Suarez has undoubtedly perfected. Some may read this post and think that its frivolous and tongue in cheek but let me disabuse you of that thought at the outset - I'm deadly serious about what will follow. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Whether you're looking to win the league or fighting relegation, the following Suarez wicked football wizardry can be practised and perfected with assistance from the rest of the team. So what does the Cardiff team practise for the next 3 weeks in prep for Sunderland, Newcastle and Chelski? Simple. Whilst Solksjaer should encourage Mutch and Cala to run in late into the box, when they're at their most dangerous, Solksjaer should pick 3 players, say Daehli, Campbell and Zaha and encourage them to practise the deadly wall pass, the quick one twos at the edge of the box and/or dribbling into the box both of which defenders hate for obvious reasons - the increased likelihood of a penalty. Now that Cardiff has won a penalty let the floodgates open, and help the referees decide the way Liverpool and Suarez have been doing. Now for the next 3 weeks, those 3 players should practise the following gamesmanship skills perfected by Liverpool, especially Suarez: 1. At the meerest touch from the defender, throw yourself onto the ground without being overly theatrical, whilst simultaneously raising an arm vigorously. The rest of the team should be drilled to thrust their arms skywards animatedly asking for a penalty. 2. Half turn in the box with the ball whilst simultaneously flicking the ball onto the arm of the opposing defender and instantly raise your arm and beat it furiously indicating a handball. The rest of the team should again be drilled to raise their arms vigorously to appeal for a penalty. It works everytime! Suarez did this against Rafael of United and the very next week against Tomkins of West Ham. Its impossible for the defender to react fast enough to remove their arm from their sides and since it's a flick and not a hard shot the penalty is always awarded. Think they were accidents? Think again - it can be practiced for and referees fall for this every time! Oh, since you're going to win penalties have a designated player like Whittingham practice penalty kicks for the next 3 weeks working up to simulated high pressure situations."

First goal crucial - Solskjaer
"Vincent Tan is one those rich cunts you all end up hating even if they have money to spend on the club you love. They don't "buy" into the club for the passion but more a greedy hobbies. This Tan has upset the fans more and more each time, changing the color of the top (to suit his believes)and changing the logo. I am an Arsenal fan and for me I respect the the Cardiff fans for standing by the Manager Mackay. And in truth it should be Tan that should f off instead. "
