Another solid performance and 3 points in the bag. Mendez-Laing scoring another screamer. 3 down, 43 to go!

Strangely, Wolves are still the odds on favourites for promotion at 5/4.
Cardiff have come up from about to about 7/2 from 10/1 at the season start.

What do the bookies know? Didn't Cardiff just beat Wolves away yesterday???

12pts from 12! including beating hot promotion favourites - and we're still under the radar!! That suits me. We seem to be going from strength to strength and mendez-laing is absoulutely on fire!! Chance to give others a competitive game on tuesday and then a massive game for us next saturday v QPR. Wouldn't it be great to go into the international break with 15points and still at the top - the way we're playing this seems quite likely, mind you I'm sure Warnock will stamp out any complacency immediately.

Happy days are here again!! although come to think of it with 5 wins to start this campaign we've not had a happier time! So maybe it's Happy days are here at last!! and two weeks now to enjoy being 3pts clear at the top. Don't want to get to carried away but if I'm honest.. I am. :)

Was hoping for more than 18,500 yesterday but if we keep on playing like we are, I'm sure the fans lost during the 'rebrand' will start to return. Shame we have an international break but in a fortnights time, we go again

Yes I was very surprised with just 18,500 - just goes to show how deep the damage of the re-brand was. I know quite a few people who just cut CCFC out of their lives and it seems that even the reversal of Tans red madness and this superb team can't get them back. However I bet the missing thousands WILL return as they will be realising to an extent that they are missing out big time on genuine Bluebirds excitement. Personally I despised the re-brand, which proved to be a complete disaster - I nevertheless kept on turning up with my support but it was not a great experience (if it hadn't been reversed, I think I'd have given up on them myself by now). But the way I see it now is that we are back in our correct colours and at the top of the league. We've got a team and a manager that could well stay there or thereabouts this season. There's a lot to love at the Cardiff City stadium at the moment and I have no doubt bigger crowds will be returning soon.
