Cardiff City finished the last Championship season in 11th place and managed to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup. Federico Macheda was their top scored with eight goals to his name.
It was a very disappointing season for the club as they were tipped to return immediately to the Premier League under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But the former Manchester United player was fired as a coach in September and things got worse and Cardiff finished the season with 62 points, their lowest since 2007/08 season.
Cardiff City fans are desperate to see their side return to the English top flight this time around but it’s a side that is a work in progress according to coach, Russell Slade.
The manager has set a target of a minimum top six finish this season and has vowed to keep hold of his star players at the club in order to challenge for the top honours.
Few Cardiff City players are on the radar of some Premier League clubs including David Marshal, who has been linked with a move away to Liverpool. Other players who have attracted interests from top flight clubs are Peter Whittingham and Joe Mason, while their top scorer Fredrico Macheda is believed to be unhappy and is looking for a move back to Italy.
One thing Cardiff did right last season was to return to their original blue colour.
Fans wanted their club to stay true to their tradition and the hierarchy at the club finally cave in and let go of the red colour.
