STEADY CARDIFF CITY : A SHINING EXAMPLE FOR ALL THOSE IMPATIENT FOREIGN OWNED FOOTBALL CLUBS PLAYING IN THE ENGLISH LEAGUE?

“THE RACE IS NOT WON BY THE SWIFT BUT BY THOSE WHO KEEP ON RUNNING.”

This is the first thing that came to my mind when I read about Indian-owned Blackburn Rovers sacking their manager, Henning Berg…….shortly after Kuwaiti-owned Nottingham Forest sacking Sean O’Driscoll.

Berg was sacked for only winning one match in six games….whilst O’Driscoll was culled for not having won more than two games on a trot!!

This brings us to the Malaysian-owned Queen’s Park Rangers, which not too long ago, sacked Mark Hughes because they did not want to lose the opportunity of having Harry Redknapp as their manager.

How shallow can they be……..as though a manager is the panacea for the performance of a football team?

Harry has inherited a team that is rotten to the core……..caused by the silly money made available by Tony Fernandes….easily funded by the equally silly transactions he effected in Malaysia, yes funded by institutions including the pension funds of Malaysia!

Harry was being polite when he said that Jose Bosingwa’s wages was higher than all the players at Tottenham Hotspur when Harry was manager there! Click HERE

Tony thought that he could do like what the UAE owners did for Manchester City.

Hey, come on. We’re talking about men stuff as far as City is concerned.

Do you recall how his offer to acquire West Ham was brushed off discourteously……..that the West Ham owners were not prepared to deal with the boy-stuff offer by Tony Fernandes which they described as bizarre & disappointing. Click HERE

Which brings me to the other Malaysian-owned Cardiff City…….which is sitting pretty at the top of the League Championship table after having beaten rivals Crystal Palace recently.

Yes, Cardiff City is not assured of Premier League football next season but they have been consistently challenging for the right the past few seasons.

And they have been doing it quiety and economically…….with Vincent Tan hardly making unnecessary appearances (read: gaffes) and bold statements…..very much unlike the SIS, Tony Fernandez!

Yes, it is only natural for magnates the world over to have a taste of the ‘action’ by owning football clubs playing in the English League.

But it seems foolhardy for such magnates to ‘waste’ monies on such ventures without a firm foundation and business plan.

Maybe in the case of Tony Fernandez, he could do it ……… because it’s not his money anyway!
