  • Description

‘Aled Blake examines in detail how the manager transformed [Cardiff’s] fortunes with a modest budget, when it felt like many people had given up on City’s dream.’

Danny Gabbidon, from the Foreword

‘Cardiff City has always been something of a soap opera for us long-suffering fans, but even the most creative scriptwriters would have struggled to conjure up the implausible storylines we've seen unfold in recent times. Aled Blake perfectly captures the astonishing tale of the fight for the heart of the football club and the unlikely messiah who  delivered a dream and united a city.’

David Owens, City fan and journalist with WalesOnline

Bluebirds Reunited is the incredible story of the renaissance of Cardiff City: how a club in turmoil transformed its fortunes to win the unlikeliest of promotions, and how its loyal fans fell back in love with their beloved Bluebirds.

Essential reading for every Cardiff City fan, Aled Blake, charts the  Bluebirds’ roller-coaster ride from the humiliating Premier League relegation in 2014 and the fierce protests from disillusioned supporters against the club’s controversial rebranding, through a series of dismal seasons as the team struggled in the Championship, to the return to blue and the appointment of Neil Warnock.

Featuring revealing fan insights and exclusive interviews with Warnock, Bluebirds Reunited tells the story of Cardiff City’s rebirth from the fans’ perspective and explains how a club, its fans and a city were reunited in an euphoric promotion back to the Premier League.
