Here we go again!!!!!

With the Olympics now over the never ending football circus starts up for another 9 months of frustration, heartache and perhaps the odd moment of joy (if we're lucky).

At the pre-season friendly Cardiff v Newcastle on Saturday. For the record, Cardiff won 4-1 but Newcastle were not that bothered. Entertaining game for a friendly though and the sun was shinning.

Photo taken with Samsung Galaxy S2 - DSLR it is not :)

Note: Cardiff are in red after their re-branding (I'll save that story for another day and a set of photos!!).

I appreciate all your comments, thank you so much. I do read all the comments and will try to answer any questions you have.

How did the fans take to the new colour?

@Curly: Most have accepted it as a means to get greater funding (the Malaysian owners insisted on the colour change from blue as part of their investment strategy). However, there is a sizeable minority who are quite vocal in their opposition so should be fun at the first home game on Friday :)

I'm red and white btw, so the result suits me :-)

@Curly: Newcastle has their first choice defence but not their attack. Only a friendly but they really were awful.

And where do you stand on the new Red re-branding Phil !!?? I think the new kit and badge look great but then I don´t have "Bluebird" blood running through my veins..
