I’m now into my third decade of watching Cardiff City and for a while I’ve wanted to start writing about the tactics they (and their opponents) use.
Promotion to the Premier League means a lot of different things but, for me, it also means access to a wealth of statistical data, charts, graphics and all sorts to analyse the games. That has all led to this blog being written.
Why the name?
It’s a not particularly clever play on a famous Alan Sugar phrase. He derided the substandard foreign footballers joining the Premier League as Carlos Kickaballs, which has always stuck in my head and jumped up when I was thinking of what to call the blog. It’s about Cardiff, they kick a ball…put the two together and that’s what comes out.
Why does it all look so rubbish?
Yes, I’m working on that. Slowly.
