Cardiff’s awkward squad Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds poised to fly into Premier League by John Payne Published

"Emotional to be honest".

Cardiff's return was sealed on Sunday as they claimed a goalless draw with Reading, as third place Fulham suffered a shock 3-1 loss to Birmingham.

The Welsh club finished two points ahead of Fulham, who lost 3-1 at Birmingham to end their 23-game unbeaten run in the league.

It's shaping to be the best year yet for Philippine football. The match ended with a 1-1 draw.

Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has revealed that he wants to "follow the formula" that Burnley have used in the Premier League. The Philippine worldwide made the goalkeeping position his own by featuring in 45 out of the 46 league games played by the Bluebirds, conceding only 37 goals and keeping 19 clean sheets in the process. "At my age, you're not going to get many more chances". "I didn't think we would get in the play-offs let alone the Premier League".

The 6-foot-3 gloveman thanked the club's fans for their consistent support. I don't know, it's just unbelievable.

Warnock said: "We are not going to change things drastically".

The Wolverhampton Wanderers had already secured not only one of the automatic spots, but also the Championship title, leaving the Bluebirds and the Cottagers to fight for easier passage to the Premier League. He did not made it to the main lineup of Fulham despite playing as a backup from 2008 to 2014-the period represents the height of the team's success.

The 69-year-old Warnock, who has been a manager nearly continuously for 38 years, took over at Cardiff in October, 2016 with the team nearly bottom of the Championship (second tier) and led them to a 12th-place finish. Burton suffered 2-1 defeat to Preston.

The 28-year-old's pathway to the top has had a globe-trotting randomness about it. They achieved promotion the year before by winning the EFL.
