    This isn't going to be fun

    46 minutes of them passing it around in front of our 9 man defence
    34 minutes of time wasting
    5 minutes of long throws
    5 minutes of waiting for Kieffer to come on for a 'disappointing' James Collins

    Hopefully not 3 hours of them then celebrating with their rather strange fans

    Not looking forward to this one bit. Would take a boring 0-0 now

    James Linington has been appointed the referee for Sunday's derby clash.

    The official has never taken charge of a South Wales derby, however he has been the man in the middle for both sides on many occasions.

    For Cardiff, their record is outstanding with Linington in charge, winning a staggering 16 of the 19 games in which he has been the whistleman.

    The Bluebirds have won each of their last previous seven matches with the official in charge, the latest of which was the 3-1 win over Millwall earlier this season.

    In contrast, the Swans have won only four of their last 11 matches with the referee in charge.

    The most recent match in which Linington officiated the Swans saw Bournemouth earn all the points in a 3-0 victory on the south coast earlier in the campaign.

    Rob Smith and Nigel Lugg will be the assistants for the clash while Darren Drysdale will be the fourth official.



    It'll be Sods Law. We're doomed!

    Sam Bowen's not in the Wales u21 squad tonight. Is he injured?

    Don’t forget their players going down every time they jump up with KM, he’ll probably get sent off……

    My preferred team:

    Smithies

    Sang
    McGuinness
    Flint (or Morrison if fit)
    Bagan

    Pack
    Ralls
    Bowen (if fit)

    Giles
    Moore
    Harris



    Realistically though I foresee Mick returning to 5 at the back to try and soak up their passing. 3-0 Jacks, goodbye Mick.

    I'd go with that. Didn't Sang have a toe injury though, so maybe Ng instead?

    It'll be at least 4 centre backs though I reckon.

    No Chance

    This is No Risk Mick we are talking about here. His first priority will be not to lose the game whichich will be his un doing

    Smithies

    McGuiness at RB
    The magician at LB

    Nelson Flint Morrison at centre halves

    (I fully expect the 5 centre halves 3 holding midfielders against one Swansea striker)

    The dynamic midfield of Bacuna, Ralls and Pack

    Giles playing on the wrong side

    Collins will come in for Kief as Mick will say he was fresher after a grueling trip away for Moore

    One thing about our Mick is he's pretty predictable. This is the side he thinks has least chance of losing not most chance of winning

    I like Mick would take a draw but that side will lose even to a very ordinary Swansea side

    Which came first - the “get into them” or the “f**k them up”?

    Surely one must "get in them" before on can "f**K them up"?

    Hopefully Mick can build on the fairly encouraging display against Reading and realise the 5 had maybe reached the end of its usefulness

    Doubt it though. He'll revert to type, the defence will definitely have at least 4 centre backs

    3-0 to us with Swansea at 94% possession.

    Huge boost for Swansea ahead of Sunday's clash with Cardiff as Ryan Bennett, Olivier Ntcham and Michael Obafemi have all returned to training.

    Absolutely dreading this one. You just know he's going to revert to five at the back.

    Ah yes, the message board's occasionally dip into culture, this time discussing musical lyrics.
