With the most important game in Cardiff City living memory just around the corner, we headed over to Vital Barnsley to get the views of a dedicated Tyke.



Looking dodgy for relegation, how confident are you in Championship survival?

Quietly confident. It`s a shame really because we`ve come so far since last season in terms of improving the squad but we appear to be in the same precarious position. Six more points should do us I think.



Would you sacrifice Championship status to lift the Cup?

Definately. Although I`m not sure if other fans would agree. Having our name on the Cup in a football world where billions are spent to buy glory! We could easily get promoted again back to the Championship.



Liverpool, Chelsea now Cardiff – is it really a bigger game for you?

Without a doubt. Beating Liverpool was unbelievable, we thought it couldn`t get any better and then we beat ‘money bags` Chelsea! Which truly was incredible. But this is definitely the biggest game if you look at what`s at stake.



Your feelings on ex-Tyke McPhail and Peter Ridsdale?

Like many others I don`t really care for Mr Ridsdale, he told a few porky pies in his time at Oakwell! I truly admired McPhail when he was at Barnsley, a very gifted football player, no hard feelings from me, although thousands of other Tykes will disagree!



If you could have one Cardiff player on a free, who and why?

At this moment in time I`d say Jimmy Floyd. He`s obviously very experienced and will be relishing such a big game. He just seems able to pulll a goal out of a ‘nothing` situation.



Key Barnsley player this weekend?

Obviously Brian Howard. He is the one the rest of the team look up to and he will be a threat when through on goal, after all, he`s scored more than all our striker`s put together!



Prediction for the game?


It will be very close. I`m going to say 1-0 to the Reds.

Good luck lads. Let`s hope for an entertaining and far match.






Thanks go to Matt over at Vital Barnsley, the waiting is nearly over. We’ll all have a gap in our time at 3pm tomorrow – but Sunday will see 33000 Bluebirds flocking to Wembley.
