David Gold wants the Blues team to give somebody a real thumping as a statement of intent.
Speaking quite openly to the Evening Mail, Gold wants a number of big wins to boost the fans and the team following our somewhat low key start to the season with all 3 wins coming from single goals.
'When you look back at Cardiff City, you have to say what a fantastic performance they put in.
'They closed us down and worked very hard. We had chances, but we couldn't complain at the result.
'I'm beginning to think that the players themselves look at the squad and say 'wow' as there are some serious footballers in there.
'There's perhaps a tendency to feel 'well, if I don't do it, somebody else will', but we got beaten 2-0 by a so-called unfancied side like Cardiff.
'Was that game a wake-up call? I suppose it's an ongoing process, we are still finding our way a little bit but the players, management, board, fans and media alike all want to see that this is a serious team vying for promotion - and that means beating somebody 4-0.
'I believe we are capable of doing that. Certainly we haven't played at our best yet and the players brought in have yet to mesmerise us, and to do that they will have to be scoring goals.
'At the moment, we will take the wins however they come - and we have.
'But I would like to see a dominant victory, a flood of goals, even if it meant conceding a couple ourselves. It would be good to watch us record something like 4-0 or 5-2, good to see excitement and what the new players can contribute.
'I suppose much of it comes down to the question 'what is our best team'?.
'Our manager Steve Bruce will carry on tinkering until he's sure what that line-up is.
'What I would say when you look at our start is that of the clubs above us, all have played three games at home to our two.
'Maybe it won't be until 10 or 20 games when the league settles down and the cream rises to the top.'
