"Any Cardiff City fan who buys the new red shirt is a coward. The only power fans still have is to withhold money. You'll be OK, believe me" Danny Baker, broadcaster

Cardiff City fans are divided. There are those intent on campaigning for a return to blue, with some going one step further and throwing in the towel, cutting their losses and requesting a refund on their season ticket. On the other side, you have those that will support the team no matter what, who regard watching a Cardiff team playing in red as preferable to watching them crash and burn like Portsmouth. Both raise valid points and the situation is far from black and white, neither side is likely to back down either.

There was an ugly exchange between both parties last week at a Keep Cardiff Blue meeting, where threats were made regarding proposed peaceful protests. This emotive issue is in danger of overshadowing what takes place on the pitch and common ground needs to be found.

With praise ringing in his ears from all quarters for his sterling work last season, Sean Dyche was still dismissed as Watford manager, within days of the Pozzo family's takeover of Watford.

A statement released on the club's official website acknowledged his 'impeccable conduct, honour and dignity,' yet Gianfranco Zola was installed in charge without any hesitation.

Dyche deserved better, but as Cardiff has discovered recently, owners tend to do what they want, with very little regard for the consequences.
