Cardiff City's troubles look to be increasing as the fans boycott seem to be taking effect.

Yesterday's FA Cup 3rd Round match with Colchester United, which saw the Bluebirds (or should that be Red Dragons?) cruise to a 3-1 victory, saw a new record low attendance for a match at the Cardiff stadium since its opening in 2009.

Just 4,194 people turned up to watch Cardiff cruise past the U's and into the 4th round draw, with even the man responsible for the boycott in turn boycotting the games this season.

Vincent Tan, who has upset fans with his decision to change the Cardiff City kit from a blue home kit to a red one, among other things, has been staying away from games himself.

This has led to the bizarre situation of fans boycotting an owner who is also boycotting!

The question is whether the boycott will have any effect on Tan, who has an extremely wealthy man, or will it just see the team suffer even further?
