ARCHIVES. Click HERE for the archives to this site, which include well over 600 entries as well as links to roughly 130 web sites.

ONE MORE NOTE. In case you didn't know, Cardiff City FC are, far and away, the greatest football club the world has ever known. We're talking about the winners of the 1927 FA Cup, and the only club to take the FA Cup out of England. Coverage has been spotty at best of late.


CARDIFF CITY RESULTS FOR 2011/12 SEASON, ALL COMPETITIONS.

Cardiff City finished their 46-game campaign with a sixth place finish and a berth in the playoffs. Their record shows 19 wins, 18 draws and nine defeats, for a total of 75 points. This is the third straight year City have made the playoffs.

City took on West Ham United in the playoffs, the first leg played at Cardiff City Stadium, the second leg at Upton Park. This home-and-away didn't go too well, City losing at home 2-0 and away by a 3-0 scoreline.

Go here for a look at the final table.
