With a 7 game losing streak, the worst run of results Cardiff has seen since 1933, Mick McCarthy is still (currently) at the helm as we head into Saturday's clash against Warnock's 10th-in-the-table 'Boro at the CCS and the lads will look to build on an improved midweek performance with the aim to finally put an end to this most miserable run of defeats.

Not sure about winning, but I'm confident we're going to score!

I actually think we’ll win this one, don’t think it’ll make a difference to Mick staying though.
Been told Mick is gone Sunday regardless of the result.
Bloke who told me was the same one who said Warnock was gone after the Bristol game even if we won it, days before the fixture took place.

I don’t tend to go in for the whole #ITK stuff but he was right last time.

I have seen suggestions that there will be a "toxic atmosphere" at CCS on Saturday if Mick is still in charge. :nope:

That is only likely to occur if the mindless minority are allowed to have their way. I am sure that the sentiment of the vast majority of supporters would be "Thanks Mick, you did your best, but it was one challenge too many".

After signing the extended contract Mick was presented with a transfer window in which there was absolutely no money available, even though the squad was stripped every creative player we had last season. I doubt that was the situation envisaged when he signed up, but the financial impact of the Covid situation on Vincent Tan's empire will have undoubtedly affected his ability to inject cash as he had before.

Yes, some of his tactics have been out of left field, but I hope the crowd will show some appreciation for Mick the man and also TC.

I don’t claim to be ITK, the “bloke” is a close friend if you must know.
We’ll see Sunday as I said, he was right about Warnock days before.

I'd like to think you're right but fear you will be wrong if we're not winning. 7 losses on the trot and the obscenely defensive set ups where we couldn't defend means there is little patience even from more moderate supporters

If Mick loses he'll have a roasting off the crowd. He wouldn't expect anything less. Been in the business long enough to know they'll tell him how they feel in the heat of the moment. Water of a ducks back. Mick's seen it all. Like he said the fans will be at City long after he's left. He'll expect a bit of gip off some fans. It's football at the end of the day. It's not personal 99% of the time.

All I ask for Saturday is not to be so bored out of my mind that I can’t wait till the final whistle.

I'm in the red seats. I'm going to lean back and watch the ball fly above my head.

You’ll be able to lie across the seats and have a kip up there it gets too bad to watch.

And I doubt many are as ready to absolve him of responsibility for a transfer window where Joe Bennett was allowed to go, leaving 19 year old Bagan as our only LB (I’m not prepared to believe he couldn’t have found another LB), signed and then loaned Wintle (to a rival) and then let Murphy go on loan (to a rival) who for all his faults and frustrations was an attack minded flair player. The transfer window was a disaster and it can’t all be blamed on lack of funds.
