Back in blue and back in the top flight. Let's see how the

Are you going? Take pics if so!Big game in Cornwall for Cardiff tomorrow night as they travel to the mighty Porthleven FC for a humbling experience at the home of the titans of the South-West Peninsula League Division One (West). I'm expecting lots of goals as these Premiership minnows come up against real opposition.
Kick Off 7:30. Gala Parc. It was four quid in last time I went.
Porthleven ready to take on Cardiff City in pre-season friendly | Falmouth Packet
I have one weird panorama for you where the ball's in it twice. Well you did ask! At least 9 leagues between Porthleven and Cardiff (by my reckoning, I could be wrong) so I think The Fishermen can be proud to put one past you. They did let 9 in the other end, mind, so the gulf showed. Enjoyable game, although Porthleven expected a better turnout, I think, as they'd laid on a VIP area and all sorts. I think the eight quid entry fee might've put people off - games at our level are three or four quid normally. I'm going to a pre-season friendly with my team, Penzance, against St Austell tomorrow night and it's two quid, for example. Still, a pleasant evening's football. You've a number 9 who nearly scored a proper bicycle-kick but was offside. He's one to watch. Tough, no-nonsense attacking midfielder (ETA: Lee Tomlin, just looked it up) impressed, too.Are you going? Take pics if so!
Pretty sure Tomlin has been told he can leave if he can anyone to have him. He was our star signing of last summer, from Bristol City, and spent second half of season on loan at Forest!You've a number 9 who nearly scored a proper bicycle-kick but was offside. He's one to watch. Tough, no-nonsense attacking midfielder (ETA: Lee Tomlin, just looked it up) impressed, too.
Why Eddie May era is still Cardiff City's greatest - with our 'mental' fans behind us we felt invincible
THE AMAZING SUPPORT AT SCUNTHORPE
Having started slowly, we went on an incredible winning run from Christmas onwards which culminated in the title decider up at Scunthorpe.
There was an official crowd of 7,407 that day - and more than 5,000 of them were travelling Cardiff supporters.
Get that, 5k for a nine-hour, 460-mile round trip for a Saturday 3pm kick-off at the other end of the country.
You just don't hear of that sort of thing today. Again, that demonstrates why some Cardiff fans still hark on about that era as the number one.
Let me tell you a story. After I'd left Cardiff, I was playing for Sheffield United against Newcastle. In the dressing room before the game, my team-mates told me, 'You just wait and see the Toon Army. There will be almost 3,000 of them here today. They're incredible supporters.'
I responded 'That's nothing. When Cardiff played up at Scunthorpe we took over almost the entire ground'.
Shit it sounds like you've lost new striker Sala in a light aircraft incident in the region of the Channel Islands.
