Solskjaer: Blame me for failure

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the buck stops with him following Cardiff's relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

"I am the manager. I will take the blame.

I didn't make the impact on the results I hoped for. I came in hoping to make a difference and we could move up the table, but it didn't happen.

We haven't performed very well to stay up, and that's the reality. We have not been good enough.

We have got to give the fans a good last game, and then we will look towards next season.

Odemwingie expects mixed West Brom reception

Peter Odemwingie knows what to expect when he makes his first return to The Hawthorns on Sunday.

I played against West Brom at Cardiff, but this will be my first time back at The Hawthorns.

It's going to be a mixed reception after my last six months there and I'm not expecting anything different.

Some fans are grateful for the 30 goals I scored for them and some still feel offended, but it was a choice I had to make.

I had to move on for my life. Some people understand, some don't. You can't please everybody.
