What's gone wrong at Cardiff City?

After the problems between Malky Mackay and Vincent Tan it looked like Cardiff had found their hero in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but now it looks like it's all turned sour.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over Cardiff City FC on 2nd January 2014 and despite losing four of his opening six games (winning the other two) looked to be building something at Cardiff.

Despite his and the players efforts the Bluebirds were relegated from the Premier League but did produce some thrilling results including their 3-3 draw with West Brom and their 3-1 win over Fulham. However, a problem with Cardiff's defence seemed to arise as they were scoring a lot but also conceding such as the 6-3 loss to Liverpool.

Over the summer Gunnar Solskjaer and Vincent Tan knew something had to be done if the club were to get back into the top flight. So the club had a busy transfer window bringing in a total of 10 players including Adam LeFondre and Anthony Pilkington.

Cardiff had a good start to their Championship season, with a draw and four wins in their first five matches (including their League cup tie). However, since then Cardiff's results have turned sour with Cardiff losing against Wolves and drawing with bottom place Fulham. 

The last two games have been seen as a final straw for some supporters with Cardiff losing their 2-0 lead, to a 4-2 defeat by Norwich and losing to Middlesbrough midweek. Many blame substitution changes and tactical inefficiency for the problems.

Although Solksjaer does have a good managerial record having won the Norwegian top flight twice in two years and winning the Norwegian cup as well as having developed some of his coaching under Sir Alex Ferguson towards the end of his Manchester United career.

Instead of blaming the manager some fans have opted to blame the players for the recent failings with the players and them playing the wrong type of game for the players the have for example putting in high crosses when Kenwyn Jones has gone of the field.

The problems seem to be mounting up for Cardiff especially with the added pressure of an expected to return to the Premier League.

Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to blame for Cardiff's recent failings, is it the players fault or is there another factor? Let us know what you think through our Twitter @fitforfootball, our Facebook or our Google Plus page.
