"I first heard about 1927 when I was very young, as young as I can remember, I guess," said the 21-year-old at the training ground yesterday. "That's how it is in Cardiff - the fans still sing about it now. Hopefully, we can change that and make our own piece of history. Obviously, it was a great achievement what they did back then, but it would be great for Cardiff to move on, just like everyone has to move on. It's a bit like Welsh rugby in the 70s I suppose. Now this current Welsh team are making their own legends with their Grand Slams. I do see a parallel in that. Well, hopefully. Like I say, it's down to us."

That is not through any lack of vocabulary, or any obsession with the phrase, but simply because he can plainly sense the tug of yesteryear at their backs as Cardiff head into their FA Cup semi-final with Barnsley. It is down to them to bury the folklore of Fred Keenor and his men who so famously took the silver urn out of England for the first and, so far, only time. It is down to them to put football back on the pedestal in the capital.
