Re: RUMOUR - David Meyler

Like the sound of this, won't set the world alight, but is a good defensive midfielder. I wonder would he do any EASports related stuff? Obviously I approve on Nationality grounds also, with Stephen Quinn leaving, and Liam Kelly backing off from international football, the Irish representation at t...

Re: RUMOUR - David Meyler

Anyone know his injury record?
Could be a decent signing for free. If Clement thinks he is an upgrade to what we have then so be it, I do think that his position is where we should be looking to strengthen the most.

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

If true, can be a good start of whats required. We need at least 2 options per position. Healthy competition is a good thing and freshens up the RB place and would hope Gunter is up for the challenge. Watson cannot be relied on and i think it would be stupid of the club to think otherwise. He has ha...

Re: Strikers.

I wouldn't have described him as a target man, but I believe he led the line in the Netherlands this year, so that might be more his game now. Certainly can't argue with his scoring record. I'd love to see him coming off the bench as a positive sub to win games. It's not like Kermie or Bod are like...

Re: Rumour - Mason Mount

Yeah likewise, I'm he would prefer to play for the team that finished 20th in the championship instead of playing for teams in European competition and finished 2nd and 3rd in their respective leagues. It's up to the club what loan bids they accept, if he get's a choice it will only be between club...

Re: Gourlay

also, the comments from the panel on BBCRB to have a more visible owner - is that really what people want? An owner who appears in the press all the time and makes the most of their ownership generating PR and profile? literally no interest in hearing from owners. but it certainly wouldn't hold it ...

Re: Summer Transfers

The overhaul should be of training methods, coaching and fitness rather than players imo A proper pre-season fixture schedule would seem a must As would an overhaul of the medical/sports science set-up. Would be nice to try and enter a friendly cup competition, lots of photo ops which in turn, boos...

Who would you like us to bring in over the summer? Early doors yet, but here's a few names, ages, to get started... Two realistic targets I'd like, would fill a need, and could be available: DefMid - Gary Gardner 25 Barnsley (on loan from Villa) Striker - Gary Madine 27 Cardiff Others to consider: ...

Re: Summer Transfers

As i have stated before, we should be only signing players who would be starting games. I will assume that the budget is only enough for one starting 11 player as prices for any decent champ player is insanely high. With Wolves setting the tone that a throwing money at players gets you promoted, I ...

Re: Team for cardiff

Aluko is a complete wildcard to me, we all know he will start and put in a lazy performance and compromise the rest of the team. But somehow we dont have an alternative. We've gone from having too many in September with - Beerens, Barrow, Popa, GMAC, Harriot and Aluko. February we were left with Alu...

Re: Team for cardiff

Can we agree that there is actually no correct starting line up with the players we have available. Unless Aluko suddenly has the urge to defend and track his runner AND keep close to the sideline whilst we got possession, we might be able to put a performance together.

Re: Building for next season

Remember whwn our injury lay offs were measured in days and weeks not months and years? No, me neither. That's Roberts, Karacan, Quinn, Harriott, Obita, and Watson all out for about a season or more in the last 5-6 years. And I'm bound to have forgotten someone. Out of that list, how many out of th...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Will be interesting with Barrett and Novakojvich coming back from loan as well. You’ve got to think someone (smith maybe) will end up on loan next season assuming we’re still in the Championship I'd like to see Loader get more first team games, whether with us or on loan. Looks a talent. I hope a f...

5-4-1 Mannone, Bacuna Llori Elphick Moore Gunter, Kelly Edwards Barrow Aluko (unfortunately) Bod Absolute thread bare in the middle. Have a real problem playing Kelly and swift in the same midfield, think ATM Kelly edges it more. Swift has ability come on and make a difference as a sub. Edwards can ...

Re: Building for next season

Been down the road of loans before and it is a no from me. I think they have been the very wrong choice. Grabban is on loan to Villa and somehow scores almost every game, but for us was shite. Martin has always been decent. Vydra is the top scorer I think this season. Much rather a young hungry pla...

Re: Building for next season

Hopefully we can get some very good loan players in which will actually make a difference, with Clements connections. Think Abraham at Bristol City. I would not say no to somebody like Maitland-Niles/Willock or Nelson or Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea (yesterday in fa youth cup final he looked seriously ...

Re: Building for next season

In order to make the finals of the Championship PO's We will need a striker who can get 25 goals or two 15-20 goal strikers. We need, power, strength, aggression, speed, hardness, the sort you get from a non-stop, take the knocks forward line, my personal favourite(s) being the Long-Hunt partnershi...

Yep would like to see Novakovich given a go.

Re: Clements Out.

IMO i think we should play for the draw, but have Bod and Barrow up top for a break away. Cardiff will be pushing for the win as a draw is not good enough to guarantee 2nd. Also prefer Aluko not to start either as he does not and has not worked hard enough for the spot. No idea who can replace him t...
