Cardiff’s awkward squad Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds poised to fly into Premier League by John Payne Published

"It's just unbelievable. We've had a fantastic season and I'm just happy to get over the line today", said Etheridge. I don't know, it's just fantastic.

The 69-year-old Warnock, who has been a manager nearly continuously for 38 years, took over at Cardiff in October, 2016 with the team nearly bottom of the Championship (second tier) and led them to a 12th-place finish. They achieved promotion the year before by winning the EFL. "I've got a great bunch of lads".

Etheridge, who got tapped to cover for the injured Lee Camp, has revived his career with Cardiff where he has played in all but one of the Bluebirds' games this season. "At my age, you're not going to get many more chances". It's been a fantastic season for me.

"They're proud of being Bluebirds again, the fans", Warnock added. Even when Cardiff had a wobble over the festive period, losing four consecutive games, Etheridge says Warnock remained positive.

By Saturday, Haspel had agreed to continue with her nomination, officials told the Post. Haspel's troubles come on the heels of Trump's Veterans Affairs debacle.

Etheridge, who traces his Filipino roots in Tarlac through his mother, said he was "emotional" with the success of Cardiff this year and the prospect of moving into the Premier League.

Cardiff City go into today's Championship clash against Reading knowing that victory will be enough to send the Welsh club back to the Premier League. He guided the team to a midtable finish at the end of his first season and has been the driving force behind an improbable promotion campaign this season despite spending a fraction of the outlay of rival clubs like Villa, Derby and Middlesbrough.
