    Would love to see Zohore and Ward up top, with a midfield 4 of Murphy, Arter, Ralls and Camasara. Huge game.

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v BURNLEY. Match thread

    Judging by Warnock's comments no way will Zohore start. He bigged up Cunningham though and also said he was impressed by a player he hadn't used so far,in training. Guess that's either Kadeem or Damour.
    Back line will be in think
    Etheridge
    Manga
    Bamba
    Morrie
    Cunningham

    MF
    Camarasa
    Arter
    Ralls

    Front 3
    A choice between
    Hoilett
    Ward
    Reid
    Kadeem
    Murphy

    Wonder if there's any chance Cunningham comes in for Bamba ? Seems harsh on Bennett to drop him for two games. With regards to the front line, i'd like to see Hoilett given a rest sunday.

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v BURNLEY. Match thread

    In my opinion, Hoilett and Zohore donít deserve a place in the starting 11. Zohore is just a big lump whoís getting bullied by defenders of all sizes, I donít know why there was such a hype about him, I thought the end of last season he was no where to be seen. Heís not a prolific goal scorer in the championship and clearly not in the premier. Iím disappointed in Hoilett as I reckon he can step up and compete but he needs to run at defenders and try and go past them, doesnít matter if he loses the ball. Iíd rather see the team try when they attack rather than just pass it around the midfield then hoof it up to the lone striker. As thatís all we are doing and itís not working what so ever. (Apologies about that rant but itís been frustrating to watch!)

    I think we should play 4-3-1-2..

    Etheridge
    Bennett
    Bamba (if NW has had words about silly mistakes) or Cunningham
    Morrison
    Manga

    Ralls
    Gunnarsson (surely he should be fit now?) or Camarasa
    Arter

    Reid

    Ward
    Madine - to rough up the defence then bring on Murphy at half time to make the difference.

    Whatís the chances of getting Will Grigg in January?

    Not one for saying season will be defined by one game usually but this is a cup final for us.

    Shirely we have enough for a 2-1 win.

    Bit mystified with people wanting Ward given another chance? Hasn't shown a great deal as far as I am concerned.

    A lot more than Zohore and when Maxine has been given a chance, he has also offered nothing.
    Ward might be ok with better support. He is not a lone striker.

    Cardiff City v Burnley
    Cardiff City Stadium
    Sunday 30th September 2018, ko 4:00pm.


    After three games against top six teams where City lost all three conceding 12 goals in the process the Bluebirds face another tough opponent but one where a result must be seen as possible.


    Already, after just six matches, Cardiff are facing must win games. Because after this one two of the next three are Spurs and Liverpool away.


    The second quarter of the season sees matches against more teams that City might fancy geting a result against but by then we could be so far behind we'll never look like catching up.


    Burnely were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Burton in midweek but last weekend in the league they smashed Bournemouth 4 - 0.



    Early team news:


    Lee Peltier starts a lengthy spell on the sidelines as Cardiff host Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday.

    The defender is facing two to three months out after dislocating a shoulder against Manchester City last weekend, but the defender will not require an operation as the injury will heal naturally.

    Aron Gunnarsson (knee) remains out, but Sol Bamba is expected to return in defence with Bruno Ecuele Manga moving to right back in Peltier's absence.

    Burnley are likely to be without Robbie Brady as he continues to build up his fitness while Ben Gibson remains out (hernia). Nick Pope is the only other long-term absentee as he continues to recover from a dislocated shoulder.

    The Managers:


    Neil Warnock: (On striker Ken Zohore's lack of form)


    "He's got to get the hunger back.

    "There's only one person who can do that. We can only do so much. What's that saying about taking a horse to water?

    "He's in the running. He's in the 18, but he has got to do more in training, which would make my job a lot easier."

    When asked if it was a "must-win" game, Warnock joked: "I think there will be a few more of those over the next few weeks, a few more 'must-win' games!

    "It isn't a must-win game but it is a game that's really, really important to us, with the games coming up - Tottenham and Liverpool away and a home game in between against Fulham.

    "It's a very difficult period and that's why I think the importance of the game, you can't put it under the carpet."


    Sean Dyche:


    “They’ve (Cardiff) had a tough start, partly because of the realities of their fixtures, partly because it’s tough in the Premier League.

    “We’ve been through that ourselves and been through that before in this division.

    “Every game in the Premier League is a must-win, every game is a big game and every game you have to give everything to win, or certainly when you’re Burnley or a number of other clubs in the Premier League.”




    Match Stats:



    • This will be the first top-flight meeting between Cardiff City and Burnley since March 1962 when the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.



    • Cardiff are unbeaten in 13 matches in all competitions against Burnley (W4 D9), since a 0-2 loss at Turf Moor in April 2007.



    • Burnley haven't won away from home against Cardiff in any competition since April 2000, going 11 matches without a win (D3 L8).



    • Cardiff are winless in 10 Premier League games (D3 L7), losing the last three in a row by an aggregate score of 3-12.



    • Burnley have never won a Premier League away game against a promoted side before, losing five and drawing six of their 11 such games.



    • Burnley forward Ashley Barnes' two goals against Bournemouth in his last match took him ahead of Paul Scharner as the second highest Austrian goalscorer in Premier League history (22 goals, behind Marko Arnautovic on 36).



    • Burnley boss Sean Dyche has met Cardiff five times previously as a manager in league competition, with all five finishing as draws (twice with Watford, three times with Burnley).



    The Officials:

    Referee: Martin Atkinson
    Assistants: Stephen Child, Lee Betts
    Fourth official: David Coote

    If we win, I will believe we have a chance of staying up - lose, and I'll just enjoy the football, expecting another season in the Championship.

    To have any chance tomorrow we have to be positive from the start.
    WHam did just that v Man Utd.
    Wish we had a decent striker thought. Time for Morrie to step up and score.

    Yep, it's looking like a must win game to me. Lose and we could become stranded in the bottom 3.

    Having two Murphys in the team is really confusing me, the first thing I saw on my phone was the banner with the subs. My first thought was "Murphy AND Reid on the bench? What the ****ing ****?"

    I think he's one of the only players who shows some composure on the ball.

    The Guardian not mincing their words:

    39 min: Hart punches Morrison’s long throw away. This is an awful game.

    City well on top 1st half. Burnley offered nothing at all....Thats the most worrying thing.

    Re: CARDIFF CITY v BURNLEY. Match thread

    Imagine the Burnley fans that have travelled for this. I can't believe how an established team could play with so much fear. We'll score in this half shirely.

    Their goalscorer had his hands all over the back of Cunningham when he jumped. How was that any different than the one we had disallowed?
