After Neil Warnock’s departure, it emerged that the favourites to replace him are Neil Harris and Lee Bowyer.

Harris, who had a short spell on loan at Cardiff in 2004, left Millwall earlier this year. Bowyer, of course, is currently in charge of Charlton Athletic.

To get insight into what Cardiff fans could expect from either appointment, we spoke to Lucas Ball, a Millwall fan, and Ben Fleming, a Charlton fan.

Lucas on Neil Harris:

“For us, Neil Harris was a good manager overall. Yes, he had faults – but what manager doesn’t? He was sometimes too loyal to certain players and didn’t show enough tactical flexibility, but he made us hard to beat for the majority of his tenure and strong defensively. He’ll look to build from a solid foundation at the back and get the ball forward quickly, usually to a target man.”

Ben on Lee Bowyer: 

“I think he might stay to be honest. His whole family is down here, he has talked about wanting a new contract with Charlton and turned down stoke and Huddersfield already. Think eventually he will leave us unfortunately but not yet.

It also depends on what the [Cardiff] board want tactically. Harris is probably more similar to Warnock in terms of a direct style of football. But if they want to change their style up then Bowyer is probably better.”
