    No he isn't. More chance that Serena Williams would be offered the job.

    You are quite right. We were very close to get into playoffs too, but I remember commenting on here that the game v Rotherham was the worst I had seen at CCS.
    By the way Vincent keeps in touch with Slade so don't get too complacent.

    This - I find it a bit tiresome from keyboard warriors who would not know where to start when it comes to managing a football club.

    So he moved a few players on? How hard than that be? Surely agents do most of the work?

    Re: Russell Slade

    The football was rubbish but I met him once and seemed a nice guy. At end of day he left us in a better postion then where we were

    He moved players on and kept us competitive. Give the bloke some credit at least, he was miles better than his predecessor.

    Maybe Vince is just a nice appreciative man ,and wants to show a respect for the added value Russell Slade brought to rescuing the club from the previous spendthrifts ,he moved on 12 players ,with a transfer embargo slapped on us, making it even tougher .

    Russell Slade left over 3 years ago.

    Why do some of our fans still seem to be obsessed by him?????

    He moved a few on but he still had a squad good enough to get to the playoffs. He was better than OGS but competitive is stretch. We were never really in the race.

    Competitive? I felt like if we scored it was down to luck.

    We were 2 points off with 7 to play. Considering he got us through a transfer embargo, I think he gets a raw deal.

    Re: Russell Slade

    Yes, Russel was a genius. First he addressed the horrible fitness levels in the team. He was a tactical genius, with a nose for finding bargain players with generous talent. And like many said, he cleared a lot of “deadwood”
    This old plank, he gave away for free.

    He was going to be our Arsene Wenger. In charge for 20 years. 😂😂

    Tan was a sick **** putting us through those 2 years.

    Ok Tan we surrender.

    Re: Russell Slade

    Shocked by the number of Russell Slade apologists on this thread 🙈

    He nearly killed this football club more than the rebrand.

    I do wonder about the psyche of the average Cardiff City fan.

    I’ve completely blanked out the years from Dave Jones leaving until Warnock taking over

    Warnocks football is part Dave Jones, part Russell Slade.

    Great when he gets it right, horrible as **** when he gets it wrong.

    I thought the tactics against Burnley were a new low.

    Centre half taking pot luck, long throws, from first minute to last.

    Each to their own, but that’s not football to me.

    Slade was a disgrace

    Re: Russell Slade

    Slade came in at a difficult time, and boy did we feel that under his stewardship. He might have done an effective job but there was a reason crowds fell so low. My biggest criticism is still that he didn't buy anyone from the lower leagues despite having more experience of those leagues than anyone else in football.

    He's gone head of football here to winning just 19 games, in 80 games, with 3 clubs. Shocking career move leaving us really.
