Everyone knows we can do it. Sadly, everyone also knows what seems to happen each time we say as much.
So straight over to the Salut! Sunderland jury. Does the fight to scramble away from the bottom of the Championship start with a good result at Cardiff or is our plight about to get even worse?
With third top vs bottom of the league (and bottom for a reason), the logic is in favour of a routine home win. But who knows? The addition of a central defender who is comfortable on the ball is not only reassuring. It’s something of a novelty.
I hope JCS gets plenty of game time, he deserves the break.

I admire the optimism ahead of each game, however dressed up in gallows humour. That is natural: we want our team to do well, we want the players we have and the manager we have to show they are up to the task.
Pete Sixsmith’s reports are always beautifully constructed but how he would welcome a chance to learn possibly new skills, writing in an upbeat manner on a consistent basis, not just every seventh game or so.
So Guess the Score, even if you don’t much like sentences that start with “So”.
Can we do it? Can we go two points better than a draw? If not, can we at least come home with a point?
Usual rules. A book or mug awaits the winner and Cardiff supporters are more than welcome to enter.
Ha’way the Lads …
