    Well right now I think Pompey or rangers fans would quite like a couple of Malaysians to roll into town.

    Lets get it striaght tho, this is Hamman's fault at the end of the day. If he had never got his grubby hands on us we wouldnt be so desperate. Atleast the malaysians have actually put some money into the club, instead of just taking it out like Sam did.

    I hate the conceits contained in what is effectively their blackmailing of us

    £100m investment. Where is the proof of this? £40m has already goen in taking our debt from c£32m to c£72m

    DEBT. Not a philanthropic loan from some footballing George Soros

    So, some notional money. Some of which (if it even exists) will be for a new training facility.

    Which we do not need

    Some notional money. Some of which (again if it exists) will look at extending our stadium.

    Which we do not need

    And any money will be LOANED not given. And does not guarantee promotion

    I was there for the 19 years we spent in Divs 3 and 4, when we were getting 2000, 3000, 4000 crowds, all the time.

    The arrivisite (younger than me, admittedly) fans who have known nothing but the last 9 years of Div 2 football have been sold a pack of lies and have fallen for the slick marketing patter of a bunch of shysters

    I am astonished how easy people have gone "oh aye, alright then" and sold the club's identity to some people who we have never heard of and who do not give a flying fuck about us

    Martin one thing I know is if this happened at WHU there would be MURDER and I am gutted that most of our fanbase has just fallen for it. Not least as this is likely to be the thin end of the wedge.

    I don't want to be in the Premier League if this is what it takes.

    The lowest of all low days

    I'm on a phone so unable to type much but it sums it up, thanks.

    Genuinely sad for you over this news. Its wrong to try and change a crucial part of the identity of a club like this.

    It's like the only option now open to people pissed off with this decision is to stop supporting the club they've supported through thick and thin for their entire lives.

    We can still call them the Bluebirds and I'm sure we will, no one is saying you cant call them the Bluebirds!

    I'd have more sympathy if just 1% of fans could even tell me, without googling, why we are even called the Bluebirds!

    No-one buy the shirts. Everyone turn up in blue. Chant 'Bluebirds' with the emphasis on the 'Blue'. All season.

    Please do this.

    In fairness, I'd actually prefer added time multi-ball than boring nil-nil draws :cool:

    There should be an arranged day when fans of every club do this at their ground :cool: :D

    Might be a little difficult to convince those who already play in red though :hmm:

    Exactly, don't boycott the club. Boycott the shirt, in huge numbers.

    I don't support Cardiff but I'd well get behind any banner which supports their cause here. Some things should be banned from being interfered with, for culture and heritage reasons if nothing else. I can deal with shirt sponsorship changing, and I can even begrudgingly deal with grounds being called the 'Aviva Stadium' or some such stupid corporate name, but why should a club have to fuck about with superstitious 'lucky colours' to satisfy a bunch of people who've have no vested interest in the club but making money, no history of support, and nothing but cash to offer. It's bollocks.

    Without that cash Cardiff would soon find itself back in the fourth division.

    (i) so what and (ii) there is no proof of the money. And money (even if there is any) does not guarantee success. The whole thing stinks
