^ Well we do have Johnny Metgod on our coaching staff
It sounds very defensive but it really isn't (going on Saturday's evidence!)
Re Copell. Don't get me wrong I have a lot of time for the guy, I think he was a v good manager, especially at Reading, but for years now you get the feeling his heart wasn't in it. He nearly left Reading when they went down, and how many times did he leave Palace/go back again? He wasn't at Brighton long either.
I think their are obviously personal issues at play, and we shouldn't speculate, but I think he's done the best thing in leaving now, and in announcing he's retired for good.
Cardiff are certainly doing well considering you were almost wound up a short time back!
