Cardiff City's move to red - a price worth paying?

So, the red revolution has returned to Cardiff City.

This morning the club revealed that plans to change the strip to red and swap the bluebird badge for a dragon were back on the table.

As part of the package, money will be invested to pay off the Cardiff's debts - including £15 million owed to the Langston Corporation - develop new training facilities, and strengthen the squad.

Speaking about the rebranding, Chief Executive Alan Whitely said it was "not a decision that has been taken lightly or without a great deal of thought or debate."

He went on to say that the board would "do their utmost to uphold, protect and promote the values and virtues which the club stands for."

The deal is seen as one which will bring long-awaited financial stability to the Championship club. But it's sure to create a renewed stir with fans who fear the club's heritage is being hijacked.
