Following the recent stories regarding Tan's future with Cardiff, chucked some words together to try and make sense of his legacy.

Think it essentially comes down to the mood surrounding the club at the time.

The whole "red thing" was what led to the creation of this board. If "fans" are still churlish about that after all this time, then the club is better off without them.

Given the quality of football that has been served up post relegation and pre Warnock, I am surprised that the crowds are still 15,000 plus.

It's easy to forget that there would be no Cardiff City if Vincent Tan hadn't come along. Okay, he's made mistakes, but he has learned from them. That's why he is such a successful businessman.

What he did was unprecedented, though. I fully understand why so many have decided to stay away.

What I will say is I don't think it was just the rebrand but a number of factors; a perfect storm.

Move to the new stadium was tough to take for many, with the rebrand pushing them over the line.

There's nothing wrong with breaking the mold from time to time. Inertia occurs in the absence of change.

Crowds of 15,000 are better than City used to get on average when entrenched in the old Second Division in the 60's and 70's. The crowds did go up to 20,000 plus when there was a sniff of promotion, but 12,000 at the old Ninian Park was the norm.

Such is the fickle nature of the Cardiff City fan base.
