    Marvellous stuff.

    Back in the mid 1990's, City drew 0-0 at Torquay in a dreadful Third Division game watched by a crowd of just 2,004, during which there was a bit of trouble on the away end terraces. The guy who was writing for the Echo at the time (I think his name was Martyn Bedford) opened his report by saying: "The venue Plainmoor, the football plain poor," and he went on to say "once again, Cardiff City's hooligan majority spoilt it for the few."

    The poor crowd, shellshocked as they wandered out, were left to contemplate these five chilling words: there will be a replay.

    Very good - Keigan Parker was considered a real Scottish rising star about fifteen years ago I seem to remember.

    Here's my nomination for a Cardiff version of Morton v Airdrie;-

    I recall Thompson on Soccer Saturday bemoaning a dour Premier Game he was watching.
    After the break he suddenly said, "Really awful scenes here at******"
    Stelling asked him what had happened and he said, "Both teams have come out for the second half!"
