Cardiff’s awkward squad Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds poised to fly into Premier League by John Payne Published

Etheridge's team Cardiff City finished second after a scoreless draw against Reading in the final match of the second-tier English Football League Championship, securing their place in the Premier League next season.

"I've got a great bunch of lads", Warnock said. "We knew we had to do that - we faced a lot of long balls, aerial balls, crosses, set-plays so it wasn't a pretty game on the eye but in the end it was the result we wanted".

The year was 2014 and Etheridge had been out of work for five months after being released by Fulham, where he made only one appearance, in a Europa League game under Martin Jol, after joining the club as a teenager from Chelsea. "If it goes pear-shaped, I'll just leave so there's nothing to worry about". Asked what he did during that time without a club, Etheridge replies: "Paid for myself to train at Charlton Athletic".

Etheridge never cracked the lineup when he was signed by then Premier League team Fulham in 2008.

Klopp warns Salah against getting a reputation for diving
Liverpool and Tottenham still have work to do to hold off a team that finally looks like Conte's once more. That's not a holiday trip - I certainly don't think it is a holiday trip.

"This is the best achievement because if you only knew what I have to deal with off the field".

"It's been an emotional roller-coaster for me", Etheridge said.

"He'll admit himself we don't always play the prettiest, but we come out with results in a results-based industry".

Cardiff will join Wolves in being promoted automatically to the Premier League with victory at home to Reading.

"We are nowhere near other clubs and their billionaire owners who spend so much on players and wages, not even in the Championship".
