The Welsh side sit second from bottom in the Premier League and entertain West Brom in a relegation six-pointer on Saturday afternoon.

The Norwegian appears to be fighting a losing battle but Theophile-Catherine thinks the side are still more than capable of picking up the necessary points to survive.

He said: "If you look at our games, it's really been small details why we've lost.

"The other teams have just had that little bit extra. When Ole came in he told us that he wanted 'hard work' from us every day.

"I can now see it in everyone's face. I can see the motivation."

The full-back thinks that the high standards his manager set as a player will help Cardiff during the remainder of the season.

He added: "Ole has won many trophies as a player for Manchester United - and, even though I was little at the time, I remember him scoring in the Champions League final.

"They looked dead - but no one could ever rule out that United team. He drums that into us - that we have to work very hard to the very last kick of the match."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

Warnock sacked by Palace

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
