Overview: For me, Cardiff look the strongest of the three promoted teams. The Championship winners invested wisely and they could follow the example set by fellow Welsh team Swansea in impressing in their debut season.
Predicted finish: 17th
Key player: Craig Bellamy - a match-winner on his day, his experience of the Premier League will be vital if Cardiff are to be successful this season.
One to watch: Gary Medel - the summer signing from Sevilla was something of a coup for Cardiff, and the Chilean enforcer has looked right at home in the Premier League, earning the man-of-the-match award on his debut against Manchester City.
