Cardiff fans hold Tan protest

first_imgA section of Cardiff fans held a protest against Vincent Tan’s rebranding of the club following the 1-0 south Wales derby win over Swansea. Steven Caulker grabbed the only goal of the game at Cardiff City Stadium to provide some good news for Bluebirds fans after recent events which have seen manager Malky Mackay”s head of recruitment Iain Moody replaced by 23-year-old Kazakh Alisher Apsalyamov, putting the Scot’s position under scrutiny. Tan’s decision to change the club’s colours from their traditional blue to red also remains unpopular with some supporters, and that issue was the central point of the protest, held in the Canton Stand following the final whistle, with one banner reading “Blue then – Blue now – Blue forever”, while another read “Tan out”. Press Associationcenter_img Before the game, a message on Facebook from Bluebirds Unite, a fans’ group opposed to the rebrand, read: “After the final whistle, like-minded fans are encouraged to walk to the Canton Stand and stay there to chant pro-blue/anti-Tan chants. “We need to make ourselves known to Vincent Tan.” Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey could face action from the football authorities after television footage emerged apparently showing him attempting to incite Cardiff fans. At the full-time whistle the Swansea players went to go and applaud the travelling support, but, on his way to that end of the ground, Shelvey appears to make a gesture known as ‘Swim away’ towards the Cardiff fans. The gesture is believed to reference an incident which took place in 1988 where Cardiff fans allegedly retreated into the sea after the two sets of supporters clashed. There had been concerns over potential trouble betweens fans at Sunday’s game, but South Wales Police tweeted on Sunday evening that no arrests had been made at the ground. The tweet read: “No arrests at the Cardiff City Stadium today. Great to see both sets of fans being passionate & well-behaved”. last_img read more

That did not go well with Mary Kom, who is also an Olympic bronze medallist.”Bindra is an Olympic gold medallist but I too have multiple golds at World Championships. This is not his business, to involve in boxing, to interfere. I don’t talk about shooting, so it is better for him to stay quiet on boxing. He doesn’t know the exact rules of boxing,” Mary Kom said.She added, “He doesn’t know anything about boxing. It is better to be quiet. I don’t think Abhinav would also go for trials before every shooting tournament.”Earlier, former junior world champion boxer Zareen, who was refused a trial by the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) for the World Championships, had written to Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju, demanding a “fair chance” to make it to the team for the Olympic qualifiers to be held in February next year.”While I have all the respect for Mary Kom, fact is, an athlete’s life is an offering of proof. Proof that we can be as good as yesterday. Better than yesterday. Better than tomorrows man/woman. In sport, yesterday NEVER counts,” Bindra wrote on his twitter handle on Thursday.Both Bindra and Zareen are associated with JSW group in different capacities.Mary Kom (51kg) claimed her eighth world medal at the recently-concluded championships in Russia and the BFI now plans to send the Manipuri boxer for the Olympic qualifiers in China, moving away from the previous decision to give direct selection only to the gold and silver winners.The BFI criteria for men made it possible for even the bronze-winners to get direct selection.Zareen had lost to Mary Kom at the semifinal of India Open in May this year. last_img read more
