Fair play to the guy under huge (unfair) pressure from the Blues fans to be sacked after the players haven't performed. He was open and honest in the post-match interview and not making any excuses. The progress Cardiff/blues made under him they would be stupid to even think about changing him

Agreed. He didn't shun or deflect anything. The truth is however, the Blues have not moved on this year.

He said it's the first time under him that he feels that the team have gone backwards. Furthermore, he also said that there would be no recruitment in the summer. How can he go from winning the Amlin in one season to being sacked the next?? Funny world sport!! People demand success and if it's not achieved then heads must roll.

The problem with the Blues is that they're too one-dimensional. It's pretty simple: you stop Rush and Roberts and you stop them.
Roberts is, in my opinion, one of the world's most overrated players and Rush is starting to look like a spent force.
And then you have Dan Parks. The Blues started to play an exciting brand of rugby with Nicky Robinson pulling the strings at stand-off but replacing him with Parks was an odd choice. Parks is a boring git of a player who gave the Scarlets a massive hand last night with his decision to constantly kick ball away.
The Blues need to send him and his ridiculous sideburns back to haggis land.
Gentlemen, gentlemen, I'll never understand. A world of knowledge at your fingertips, and you play poker all night.

Don't think the Blue's will progress any further under Dai Young, he has had considerable funds over a long period while head coach and will not be strengthening the sqaud in the summer, he has had a little silverware in his time but nowhere near the big prize, if i were a blues fan i would be worried

2 errors in my view. Sam Norton-Knight, and Dan Parks.
Apparently SNK is playing in Japan on mega bucks, according to BBC Wales after last night's game.
Blues are a more potent attacking force when Sweeney is at No 10.

Having met him several times I can say that DY is a real gent, and gives others credit where it's due.

Why oh why Sweeney hasn't got more starts at 10 this year I don't know.  He's no World beater but better than the last 2 first choice 10's they've had.
The Blues could make it 3 muppets in a row and sign up Biggar.

Spot on.

In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"
