FEASIBLE RESULTS THAT COULD KEEP CARDIFF CITY UP

The very feasible set of results that will keep Cardiff City in the Premier League after Brighton, Liverpool and Fulham clashes

Monday 15th April 2019


We look at the potential outcome from run-ins of Cardiff City and Brighton

By Paul Abbandonato


So, it's looking like a straight shootout between Cardiff City and Brighton to stay in the Premier League.

Southampton are not totally out of the woods yet, but their 3-1 win over Wolves on Saturday puts them eight points clear of Neil Warnock's Bluebirds.


With home games to come against Huddersfield and Bournemouth, you'd fancy Southampton to get enough to avoid relegation.

Brighton have become the team the Bluebirds need to haul in, after Cardiff controversially lost their make or break clash with Burnley.

It means Burnley can't really be overtaken, but the good news for Cardiff fans is that Brighton crashed 5-0 at home to Bournemouth and have plunged down to 17th in the table.

They are five points clear of Cardiff, with a game in hand. It's in effect a six point gap, given the Bluebirds' goal difference of minus-35 is much worse than Brighton's minus-19.


The bookmakers, those supposedly in the know, have already made up their minds. They make Cardiff as short as 1-33 ON to be relegated, with Brighton 11-1 against.


Those odds speak for themselves. On the face of it, the Bluebirds are doomed.

But are they? No. There is a catch.

By a strange twist of fate, the two teams meet one another down on the south coast on Tuesday night.

Brighton only need a draw, but they have suddenly become a team in crisis, with talk of dressing room angst between the players and manager Chris Hughton.

The Brighton fans booed as they crashed 5-0 at home, they will be nervous and edgy again on Tuesday.

Just imagine the panic that would set in if the Bluebirds went a goal up, won the game and closed the gap to two points.

Brighton would still be in the driving seat, but their morale would nosedive. Cardiff's would soar, with the momentum it would bring.


The Bluebirds' season is right here in these 90 minutes down at the AMEX Stadium.

This is not over yet. This is the entirely feasible set of results that could yet keep Cardiff City in the Premier League...


April 16

Brighton v Cardiff: Cardiff win

The Bluebirds have to take three points this one, end of. The odds are against, but they are more than capable. That could kick start the chain of events that may well keep them up, completely against the odds.

Brighton 33 points, Cardiff 31 points


April 20/21

Wolves v Brighton: Lose

Cardiff v Liverpool: Lose

If Brighton have lost to the Bluebirds, they will face an enormous task lifting themselves for a difficult trip to Molineux. In Cardiff the following day the atmosphere will be rip-roaring - the Bluebirds needing a win to stay up, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool requiring the three points on their title charge. There could be plenty of goals, like the last time these two met in South Wales, but you'd have to fancy Mo Salah to win the day.

Brighton 33 points, Cardiff 31 points


April 23

Tottenham v Brighton: Lose

Spurs are looking invincible at their palatial new home. Brighton's game in hand advantage could go here, but they'd still be clear.

Brighton 33 points, Cardiff 31 points


April 27

Brighton v Newcastle: Draw

Fulham v Cardiff: Draw

Three games to go, this is an absolutely pivotal weekend and Cardiff HAVE to stay in touch by matching, or bettering, Brighton's result.

The two teams could each win these games, but with nerves kicking in a couple of draws are possible. Rafa Benitez won't make it easy for Brighton.


Brighton 34 points, Cardiff 32 points


May 4

Arsenal v Brighton: Lose

Cardiff v Crystal Palace: Win

This is where the tables need to be turned. Brighton are unlikely to get anything at the Emirates and Cardiff have to take advantage by beating Palace.

It will be tight, tense, but with the Cardiff City Stadium factor behind them the Bluebirds can edge a horribly nervous encounter 1-0, possibly via a set-piece.

Ascendancy Bluebirds.


Brighton 34 points, Cardiff 35 points


May 12

Brighton v Man City: Lose

Man Utd v Cardiff: Lose

A daunting task for the two teams. Cardiff have to hope Man City need a win on the south coast to guarantee holding off the Liverpool title threat.

Whilst that is going on the Bluebirds head to Old Trafford. Even if Man Utd's top four hopes have been dashed by then, you'd still expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side to win
.

Brighton 34 points, Cardiff 35 points


CONCLUSION

Whatever the bookmakers may think, this is clearly not done and dusted yet. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

The key, of course, is Cardiff winning on Tuesday night.

Those odds would indicate they don't think we can win on Tuesday, it won't be easy but it will be one of the most winnable away games of the season if we do it could get really interesting ????

It literally does all hinge on Tuesday and (for me) Neil Warnock needs to spring a surprise with his line-up

Away or not, we need a slight change of tactics rather than a change of line-up, as it has not gone unnoticed that the team versus Burnley was the same as the one that tore West Ham a new one at the CCS just a few weeks ago

Probably our best display of the season because we attacked from the start and were worthy winners against a team that are far better than this Brighton lot

We can still do this...! :thumbup: :ayatollah: :bluebird: :bluescarf:

City just cant score and that's the problem all season and even if we get relegated, I don't think we have enough in our forwards to get 15 goals a season

I think we will do well to get a draw at Brighton. Personally, I doubt if we will get more than 4 or 5 points from our remaining games. I have a feeling those decisions that went against us in the Chelsea game ended any realistic hopes of avoiding the drop. Will keep hoping for the best, but I can't see us winning at Brighton.

1st goal is vital imo,if we get our noses in front,and give them no choice,but to go for it,we could possibly get 2nd on counter :thumbup: f@ck it 1-3 to the city, and yes I know we have trouble scoring,but surely our luck must change at some point :?: a surprise result is long overdue ;) then Brighton will be shitting it :occasion5: we have had a lot to deal with,on and off the field,most teams imho would have folded,we have a tight group,who will run till they can run no more,we have (bar a few :lol: )the best fans,and yes,we are still within a chance pundits,and doomsayers :oops: let's get behind the boys on this run in and stay the 12th man regardless :ayatollah: :old: :bluebird:

If we get nothing tonight, fans will look back at that Chelsea game as the catalyst for our downfall I’m sure. Total injustice. They say it evens out bla blah, but it doesn’t really not for clubs like us down at the bottom fighting for every point which is crucial.

Our fans must be so blinkered, if WE DO get relegated it won't be down to decisions going against us, it's simply because we haven't been good enough.

We have a life line but if we lose to Brighton it's Championship here we come and next season we will struggle to make top 6 Championship IMO

Quite feasible results - I LOVE it. It's different from the way I've marked it but you could be right and I bloody hope you are.
I notice you've only got a draw against Fulham which we can win and you've assumed that Wolves will be trying against Brighton which I suspect they might not be

The Chelsea game aside we had a real opportunity to get a result against Burnley but were completely toothless in attack. Scoring so few goals away from home will ultimately have cost us, not one game.

It we lose tonight the Chelsea game won't matter anyway.

Cheeky Barsteward just lifted my post and wrote it into an article! The only difference is he's put us and Fulham and Brighton vs Newcastle down as draws whilst I had us both two win.

Ah well, they say imitation is the highest form of flattery.

Our fixtures alongside Brighton's and a rough stab at how it could work are:

Brighton vs. Us - We win putting us on 31 points and them on 33

Us vs. Liverpool and Wolves vs. Brighton - both lose so points stay the same

Brighton then play their game in hand away to Spurs - can't see them getting anything there so again points stay the same

Fulham vs. Us and Brighton vs. Newcastle - see both sides winning so we would be on 34 points and them on 36

Us vs. Palace and Arsenal vs. Brighton - we could win this and Brighton may well lose - putting us on 37 points and overtaking them on 36

Man Utd vs us and Brighton home to City - we both lose meaning we stay up by 1 point.

Stay strong lads - we're not down quite yet.
