Bow 5th longest serving manager
One week on. Are we over it yet? Nah, me neither, even though my brain has been through an abundance of senses travelling with work in Nevada and California this past week, that final few minutes plays over and over.
The international break is an annoyance, even though I noticed that England qualified for next year’s Euro tour. Shocking to hear Joe Gomez getting booed too, some people are such idiotic lemmings.
Lee Bowyer is himself away, in France, although he was tracked down to comment on rumours made him Cardiff City’s number one target. All bull apparently, and Neil Harris was appointed today. Bow’s name will be frequently linked with jobs, but Roly appears no closer to securing him and his back room to a longer and more regular contract.
When Neil Warnock mutually agreed to leave the Bluebirds this week, he was the 6th manager to leave a Championship club since the season began, and the 16th change since the end of last season. Bowyer, who for so long worked without a contract, is currently the 5th longest serving!
Neil Harris has done well to land on his feet at Cardiff, but he inherits a squad that played under a system that Harris prefers, and we will see it for ourselves at The Valley next week. That game is much needed to shake of the cobwebs, and breathe renewed life back into our season.
Whilst a few players are away on international duty, one of our lads did not go, and that was Zimbabwe’s Macauley Bonne, who rather worrying pulled out of the southern African nation’s ACN qualifier against Botswana this week due to “unforeseen medical grounds.”
Nothing more is known about this health scare, but suffice to say we all hope it is nothing serious Macca.
I expect you have heard/read about the CAST meeting with Steve Gallen – but as I don’t do social media I don’t know what’s out there already. I love this man – he is up there with Sir Chris. He didn’t quite get the history of the protests – but I forgive him that – why should he? All I know is we are real danger of losing Bowyer, him and Jacko if that Belgian T*** doesn’t do something soon.
