    Sorry that you are unable to share in what should be a fantastic moment for your club Neil. I understand your views and am just thankful that, as a Swansea City fan, I don’t have to mak such choices.

    I hope you get your club back soon.

    Cardiff City, the luckiest club in the world.

    They get to play in a league outside their own country – how Rangers or Celtic would have loved to have got through that loophole!

    They have been owned by two of the worst owners in history, Sam Hammam and Peter Ridsdale, and came out of it without a single relegation, administration or even points deduction. Must give Luton Town fans pause for thought.

    They have moved from a delapidated stadium to a brand-new state of the art arena. Again, how many clubs are still waiting for that?

    They have been promoted to the Premier League. The world is their oyster.

    And you’re worried about the colour of the f***ing shirts? If tradition is everything then why not protest about the move out of your traditional home of Ninian Park?

    Too trivial to even qualify as a “first world problem”.

    I hope that someone sends Sam Hammam a nice Thank You card (via Langston) for using his ill-gotten gains (from the fraudulent sale of Plough Lane and the sale of Wimbledon’s Football League place to clueless Norwegian billionaires who franchised it) to turn Cardiff City from a Division 4 basketcase in a derelict stadium to their current incarnation.

    Yeah! Congrats Bluebirds, I’m with you on your victory.
