We're going up

Just over 24 hours since City won promotion and I'm still not thinking straight.

Too many emotions still hitting me from all angles. Last summers rebrand robbed the club of some good supporters. I chose to stay and follow the club I've supported, well since birth really. Still in short trousers I was taken to watch City in the early 70's and 40 years later I'm still going and for the first time in my life Cardiff are in the top division.

As the masses ran onto the pitch after the final whistle v Charlton I took a walk on the 'hallowed turf' and saw peole cry, hug and let themselves try to take it all in.

I'm so pleased City are promoted. As a fan you always want your team to win and progress. Promotion to the Premier League is pretty damn special.

I won't go into the politics of the rebrand, the red, the club's hierarcy as it's still too raw.

I will though congratulate Malky, the players and the fans who have backed the side all season and fully deserve the limelight for a superb job done. The atmosphere on Tuesday was immense. 

A new chapter awaits.
