Early Cardiff News - No Heskey

Early Cardiff News - No Heskey

There really isn't a snappy headline for that is there. Oh well, I won't worry about it if you don't.

Right, Heskey is highly unlikely to figure in Wednesday Cardiff tie after buggering up his ankle again.

Speaking to the official site, there wasn't much Monny could say:

'He rocked his ankle during the game on Saturday. He was in big discomfort yesterday but it's eased a bit.

'He's unlikely to be fit for the Cardiff game.'

Other absentees are quite obvious, Bouma, Downing, Davies, Harewood (soon to join Newkie on loan), Lowry (joined Plymouth on loan), and Albrighton (joined Forest on loan).

The jury is still out on Luke Young, he's been training again but whether he's ready for a return yet I knows not.

For those who have forgotten:

Kick off is 7.45pm

t's the Carling Cup third round.

Adults - £20, young whippersnappers/lazy students and OAP's - £15

Tickets are on sale now to anybody with a booking history. Maximum six seats per booking, and one seat per client reference.

Simples.

I hope we win the league this season but I will not be holding my breath. However the League Cup is one that is definitely up for grabs. So as this and the FA Cup are our only realistic chances of silverware I presume it will be a full house on Wednesday as we show how important this competition is to the fans???? Or will it be half full as we demonstrate to the team that as supporters that we are not bothered whether we win or lose? I suppose I am saying that those who can't be bothered to go will no doubt stay nice and quiet if the result isn't as good as the real fans would like.

I've just read your post in the Respect The Fans story, I'm now not sure why I bothered reading this one. You're obsessed with attendances and real fan *********, if only everyone was able to be you we'd need a million seater stadium wouldn't we.
