' Russell Slade Finally Leaving Cardiff City '

Because in my opinion, this makes him a free agent to take over at Charlton or even Blackburn Rovers where he has also been interviewed .

It means no problems between say Charlton or Cardiff City and Slade will leave our club on a good note :ayatollah: :ayatollah:

The word is that he has done a deal with Charlton Athletic which is where his house (not far from) is and where most of his friends and contacts in football are,plus League One suits him and you never know,Slade could lead them to promotion next season.

If Slade had stayed at Cardiff City he would off had No say in any of the football decisions,for me that would of belittled him.

To be fair to Russell Slade he did the job he was asked to by Vincent Tan and had even won me over at one point.
He did a fair job for us fans and had taken the club as far as he could,so its best for us and him :ayatollah: :ayatollah:


GOOD LUCK RUSSELL SLADE :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :bluebird: :bluebird: :bluescarf: :bluescarf:

I think the experience he has had here will put him in good stead for getting a club promoted from League 1 hopefully. :ayatollah:
On 13th December 2016 one man stood up to be counted against a pack of Wolves his name was Kenneth Zohore.

Owen Coyle has just had the Blackburn job Annis. It'll be Charlton in my opinion.

Russel Slade steadied the ship after the disastrous OGS period. It was a complete shambles when he took over. We will never know, of course, but we could well have gone straight through the Championship, to league 1, like Wolves did. Russel did his best, and did what the club asked him to do. A decent and honest man. I wish him well. Now it's time to get behind the new management team.

he's clearly got a job lined up, doesnt take a genius to know that. but its a very strange move and makes the board look stupid, especially as you now have ken choo coming out and saying "that it is necessary to have a change". a bit of honesty wouldn't go amiss, instead of the usual corporate claptrap.

Where ever he goes I wish him the best. He took over during a terrible time at our club and steadied the ship.

The flack he took from the press and our fans was unfair and to his credit remained professional throughout.

Hopefully he will be back at the CCS with another club and we will applaud and show respect for what he did for us.

Good luck

Charlton would be his level. He gave us more team spirit and made vital changes, but ultimately he was never going to take us up. Maybe Lennie Lawrence will get Director of Football.

Did a good job in hugely difficult circumstances. Steadied the ship and kept us with a sniff of playoffs till last game last year which isn't easy with an embargo and unrest behind scenes.

I have a lot of respect for slade as a decent manager and person and although time was right I would say to have a new voice at the club believe he is an underrated manager.

At least now he won't be scouting any players for us and some tidy players might walk through the door :bluescarf:

With him now been managing at a higher level it could help him finally succeed in getting a team from league 1.

I hope he becomes Swansea or Bristols new manager. Nice bloke but a terrible manager with a really negative view of how football should me played. I don't think he was big enough to admit any responsibility for some terrible results plus freezing out some good players and reluctance to play our youngsters. His signing were mostly awful. A truly useless manager even with a hugely talented squad. I won't miss him. My mate Chris is a lovely bloke but I wouldn't wan him to manage Cardiff. If he did and he fucked up I would still tell him he was Corp but wish him all the best still.

I hope th new boss does well although I doubt it. He was pretty shit at Rovers if you look at his record. Tan only hires yes men and there ain't many yes men who are great managers.

I don't think it's a strange move at all, in fact I think it was always on the cards.
He's decided to move from a nothing, made up job to manager of a relatively big club. Simple and the right decision.

Shouldn't have took the city role if he had no intention of doing it.

The club gave him a dignified exit

Club made a mockery of the age old tradition of sacking the manager in the process. Such a cowardly way to go, won't be missed :wave:

:thumbup:

Same here. The only compliant I have is that awful final 6 games where it all went wrong for some reason. Putting that aside he did a great job all things considered.

Charlton would be a natural fit for him so best of luck!
