    Excellent piece,spot on..what will become of ccfc?I fear for the club and supporters.44 since I fell in love with the city but I’m afraid this love affair is getting closer to a break up every week.Tan has to go,he is killing the club and my passion for it..I will always have a soft spot for the city and maybe my passion will be fired again but until that egotistical lunatic has gone I’m afraid it will have to be put on the backburner.

    I have heard a number of misinformed people describe Tan as a ‘successful businessman’ in Asia and would therefore be good for our club. They were saying this 3 years ago when I first spoke out against Tan, predicting it would all end in tears. Well, Tan’s success has occurred in a country where the exploitation of people by graft and corruption is the norm, so he is probably wondering what all the fuss is about. Over there, a corrupt businessman can buy wins at sporting events around the world by either paying players to win or paying players to lose. The authorities including the British government and the FA should not allow such people to launder their money in our British (and Welsh) institutions. They have a lot to answer for.

    He won’t have to worry about Premier League rules for much longer.

    I was a CCFC supporter since I was eleven years old. A season ticket holder for five years. Refunded my season ticket immediately after the rebrand and never been back.

    Have to laugh when I see other team’s fans write “I’m with the Cardiff fans”. Truth is, the massive majority of Cardiff support tamely accepted the rebrand for the promise of money and premier league status. Most of them were on the pitch at the end of last season with pro tan flags, etc. Now that they look like going down, a lot of them have conveniently found their voice.

    Attendance was and is, acceptance.

    The blue birds were a first class club before Mr Tan
    came on the scene.Cardiff must revert back to blue and
    their traditions.
