    Lucky Peter Ridsdale saved Cardiff, eh? And it wasn’t his fault that Vincent Tan got involved…what’s that you say???…oh…

    While I have always suspected Cardiff City had taken a hit in merchandise sales due to the re-brand I would be surprised if that accounted for all of the £3 million decrease in revenue.
    Isn’t it likely that a certain amount of that £3m is the loss of income from Cardiff rugby team no longer playing its home games,as from May 2012, at the Cardiff City Stadium. The rent the rugby side was paying was widely quoted by supporters during the 2011/12 season and if I remember correctly, I think it was around £750,000 a year.

    Another reason why income was up, was down to the carling cup run which ended in a cup final appearance against Liverpool

    I’d rather have the club owe money to an owner who will probably forgive it/or a portion when they sell, then leveraged to high hell like another certain EPL Club
