Cardiff Preview - Home Dec 26th

Cardiff Preview - Home Dec 26th

Roll up, roll up, Ladies and Gentlemen, it gives me great personal pleasure to introduce the Cardiff circus.

The main attractions include the master of deceipt Peter Ridsdale, try and catch this slippery character out, and the comedy duo of Robbie Fowler and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink - both still trying to prove they can do it!


The festive season hits Vicarage Road today and so begins a manic period of festive fixtures with Dave Jones Cardiff City. The Bluebirds are sat worryingly low in the table so knowing our home form, should came away happy.

It'll have been a long ol' journey for the Welsh side who probably shouldn't be in this divsion, but credit to the fixture men who send Cardiff south for a midday kick off, on BOXING DAY!

Still, let's hope that Jones' side are still stuffed full of turkey (that's what they eat in Wales for Christmas yes?!). Watford's home form has been atrocious of late and they haven't won at home in their last five attempts. In fact, fans are coming out the woodwork from as far back as 1876 claiming to remember their last victory. Doddery old fools eh?

Talking of old things, the trio of Hasselbaink, Fowler and Sinclair bring Premiership experience, but also their zimmer-frame baggage to natter away with Jacko about. Shittu could return for this clash to partner new, 'hush hush club captain through the back door man' Jay DeMerit.

Nathan Ellington might even be given a second successive start in this season of goodwill, but then, was he a good enough boy during his Albion days to earn this start from Santa? No. Is he even Christian? No. Please though Santa, deliver a razor and some shaving cream to Mr Ellington's residence, sharpish.

Predicted Watford Line-up
Lee; Doyley, Shittu, DeMerit, Stewart; Smith, O'Toole, Francis, McAnuff; Henderson and King.

Predicted Cardiff Line-up
Schmeichal; McNaughton, Purse, Loovens, Capaldi; Parry, Ledley, Rae, Whittingham; Hasselbaink and Thompson.

Come on you 'ORRRRRRRRNSSSSS!

Thompson is suspended so Parry will play up-front, McPhail comes into midfield. Purse will not start, his place going to Roger Johnson. Bloooooobirds!
