Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has admitted he loves the Championship more than the Premier League.
After four defeats and two draws, Cardiff are still searching for their first win in the top tier. They cannot be blamed entirely for their hapless performance as the fixtures have been very ruthless to them.
Cardiff have already encountered Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City in the opening months and couldn’t show any kind of resistance and they were particularly brutally thrashed by the current table toppers.
The Wales side are due to face Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in the next month to round off a difficult fixture list. Warnock praised the Cardiff fans for their continuous backing towards the team.
“This time I said to myself I want to enjoy going to the grounds, the stadiums are fabulous for the fans. For me, the fans have been the difference this year.
“They’ve got on board, they know all the circumstances, they’re not daft. They know what the situation is around the team, and they’ve just supported us. At Chelsea, 4-1 down, they were amazing.
“If they were the opposite, against us or picking on individuals, it would be difficult, but they’re really supportive. They know this is almost like a bonus year for them, going to different grounds.
“But I still think we can put a performance on to get results, and we’ve got to get results. Without the fans it would be impossible, but fortunately they’ve been really good with us.”
