Cardiff City spent all of the 2000s unsuccessfully trying to get into the Premier League. They had a couple of tilts at it only to through it all away late in the season and had the indignity of watching bitter rivals Swansea City pass them on the way to the EPL. this shirt is from 2007 when the Bluebirds were a good team and at least still played in blue. they were bought by Malaysian owners who rebranded the club to play in red although they did retain this colour scheme as away colours. .
