Thread: “Let’s face it, we are horrible to play against,” Will Vaulks

    “Let’s face it, we are horrible to play against,” Will Vaulks

    “Let’s face it, we are horrible to play against.

    “We’re physical, we run further than teams, win battles and we’ve got great quality.

    "With the quality that we've now got, with that solid foundation, why do we need to change what Cardiff City have done to be successful?

    “We’ve put ourselves in a great spot: we’re seven unbeaten, we’ve won five on the bounce and we’re just looking to make that six wins in a row."

    The Welsh international went on to speak about the impact Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor have had so far, plus how they’ve achieved that.

    “The biggest thing is they treat everyone equally,” explained the 27-year-old. “Whether you’re starting every week or on the bench, you’re just as important and made to feel that.

    “They’ve put confidence into players and lifted the whole place, getting everyone going in the same direction.

    “Mick’s made me feel confident and as long as you give everything for him, he’ll back you to the hilt and that makes a massive difference as a player.”

    With City three points off the Championship’s top six, Will concluded by explaining the belief and determination the squad has to continue their battle up the table.

    “We’re not getting carried away," he added. "We feel as players and as a Club we should be up there, but there’s no divine right to be there; we have to fight for it.

    “It feels nice to be back in and around it, but we won’t be resting on our laurels. We’re getting back to where we should be.”

    Is there anywhere we can read MM's full after match comments? On BBC they are very brief.

    “I’m delighted, of course.” Mick began. “Any win is a good win, but winning 4-0 is better still. The lads have done all the hard work. They’ve put some real graft in, and I’ve been delighted with them. The credit goes to them.

    “The three big defenders are very good defenders. They all like blocking the ball, they’ll all throw their bodies in the way and they’ll all put their heads in.

    “We’ve got a very solid centre at the minute, and it’s working. Every team will be trying to find a way to play around it, play through it, and beat us.”

    Josh Murphy netted City’s second goal at the start of the second half, and the Gaffer commended the 25-year-old’s superb showing in an advanced attacking role.

    “He did really well. I put my arm around him at the start, because I felt he needed a bit of loving to help him to get back to his best. He’s bought into every single thing that me and TC have asked of him, and I’m glad he’s reaping the rewards because he’s a lovely kid."

    Mick continued: “We’ve got two wing backs who are doing remarkably well and are both good players. We’re not playing with wingers, and we can adapt if we need to do that. But Harry (Wilson) has found his slot in behind the strikers, and Josh is allowed to run a bit more freely, as well. It’s suiting him for now, and let’s hope that continues.”

    Dillon Phillips made two remarkable penalty saves during the second half, and McCarthy was full of praise for the man between the sticks.

    “Dillon kept his calm and saved the first one, and I think Flinty wins the ball for the second one, but nevertheless, the referee gives another one, and Dillion saved that too.

    “I’m pleased he did, because it could have been a nervier last 25 minutes at 2-1!”

    Mick concluded by looking ahead to Wednesday night’s clash with AFC Bournemouth, who sit three points ahead of the Bluebirds in the Championship table.

    “We are where we deserve to be, because of the results, the performances, and the way the lads have played. The reality is that the players have played very well, and we’ve had to scrap for results. Five wins on the bounce has got us into 7th spot, and those wins have earned us that.

    “We’ll go to Bournemouth and try to get a result there, and see what happens. We’ll just keep scrapping away and picking up points.”

    Thanks for that Mike. I like what he said about where Murphy is playing. Murphy himself said the toher day that playing in a more roving role and beig able to come onto ball suit him and he is enjoying it. Long may it continue.

    It's well worth watching the full Will Vaulks interview for those with a club TV subscription. It is 13 minutes long - and as usual with him there are some good insights into the squad and management, and a welcome absence of 'football cliches'.

    He's quite forthright is our Will, without being an arsehole. Bit of character and he seems to be enjoying himself under McCarthy.

    This speaks volumes:

    “The biggest thing is they treat everyone equally,” explained the 27-year-old. “Whether you’re starting every week or on the bench, you’re just as important and made to feel that.”

    What the hell was going on under Harris?

    Didn’t Benkovic say that nobody at the club spoke to him, or words to that effect. Strange, if true, you’d think in most workplaces a newcomer wouldn’t be snubbed by other workmates. Or was the environment so toxic that everyone was paranoid? I obviously don’t know but you do get the impression that something has changed and changed for the better since Harris’s departure, oh to be a fly on the wall eh.

    Wonderful interview with Vaulks I thought as a CCFC supporter.
    He is a bright man as well as a talented combative footballer.
