Neil Warnock has claimed that he can’t see how Cardiff City have changed since Neil Harris replaced him as manager.
The current Middlesbrough chief had a hugely successful few years with the Bluebirds, which included winning promotion to the Premier League.
Despite that, some often questioned the approach the experienced boss used, with Cardiff known to play a direct, long ball style under his guidance.
So, one of the hopes when he was replaced was that they would implement a more stylish approach but Warnock told Wales Online that he’s seen no evidence of that after yesterday’s game which ended 1-1.
“They [Cardiff] are the best physical side and the towel’s round the side with every throw-in. I was told they [Cardiff] had changed style since I’d left. I’m not sure the style of football has changed if I’m honest from what I was told.”
Warnock’s observations may seem fair in the eyes of some as Cardiff have managed just six goals in seven games this season and they are currently in the bottom half of the table.
In truth, Warnock’s assessment is fair as Cardiff haven’t changed dramatically from the way he played.
They still like to go long and they get numbers in and around the target man, Kieffer Moore. However, that’s understandable, as you play to your strengths and Harris inherited a squad that did well playing a certain way under Warnock.
So, there’s nothing wrong with that but it’s ultimately all about results and Harris needs to get some wins quickly.
