Rochdale 1 Cardiff City FC 0
A depressing day in 1997
Just look at it! - I mean, what a dump!
Despite Cardiff having a stadium that dwarfs this half-built pigpen and a catchment area
that could easily support a major team, it seems that we're
destined to trudge around these third-rate hovels until something
is done to wake up the (ahem) 'sleeping giant'.
Truth is, its been asleep so long its going to take one hell of a waking up, and it's
this tragic waste that angers so many City fans.
Whenever I hear some Premier League supporter whingeing away about how tough it
is to see their team losing
I feel like making them travel out to a bleak shithole like this,
and then telling me what defeat tastes like.
Because I know all about it. We lost 1-0. Ouch!
Note to Rochdale fans: this isn't a go at your club. I know that the ground's since been refurbished but I wanted to document the kind of miserable, bleak days that awaydays in the Third can deal out. This was one.
