Past it. Body giving up due to years of abuse.

Should never have been given an extension.

He was the difference last year between finishing mid table and play offs before the first lockdown. Hindsight its easier to say to never extend his contract but the form he was in you wouldn't of wanted him to go in the summer.

I did and said so at the time.

His cavalier approach to match fitness over his career is now costing him, body breaking down. Over 30 he's hardly likely to magically improve in that regard. On his day, great moments, blowing out his arse after a few runs.

Basing the side around him is sheer folly given wed be lucky to get at most half a season out of him.

Surely the greatest assist in city history. Absolute genius. Cannot wait to see him back in blue
Wouldn't say the greatest but its excellent bit of genius.

He wouldnt be playing for Cardiff City if he was a supreme athlete. It's the way it is.

Hardly needs to be a "supreme athlete".
Just needs to have adopted a professional attitude towards his body given he's made a nice living from it. Since he hasn't, we're seeing the result.

It's crazy to have built the side around, relied on somebody who is unavailable quite a bit.

I think so too.
I’ve always enjoyed this assist by Ross McCormack for Chopra as well (03.47)


As a side, what a finish as well by Chops. He was lethal on his day.
