League position is irrelevant

icon rebrand21 February ~ Despite defeat at home to Brighton on Tuesday night, Cardiff City currently top the Championship table by five points with a game in hand. Yet this season the club changed their colours, from blue to red, and redesigned their badge to include a dragon rather than a bluebird. The transformation in identity was underlined when, at the Brighton match, over 20,000 supporters waved red scarves bearing the legend "Cardiff", ignoring the City. It means some fans no longer recognise the club they used to support, as the Ffwtbol blog explains.
