CARDIFF HOPING FOR ANOTHER EXCELLENT FREE TRANSFER

The transfer market is red hot at the moment.


Neil Warnock and his team are reportedly surveying the landscape for the best legs to join their side in a free transfer deal. Six players have joined the club this summer and almost all have been gotten without paying the expensive transfer fees.

Cardiff City only had to spend a minute figure to land Callum Paterson though. The club has taken advantage of decent players that do not have deals. The coach has said that he would add more, possibly three to the crop of players he has before the season resumes.

This strategy has worked in the past and the club had benefited from it. In the last decade, several players joined the club virtually for free but eventually went on to make their mark in the team.

An obvious mention would be sol Bamba who joined last summer for Leeds United. He was one of the first players recruited by Warnock and he repaid the faith in him real quick. In his 26 appearances for the club last term, the African star showed impressive form. (more…)

Cardiff pushing for promotion

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock said that his side would be pushing for promotion next season.


He said that this season had been a preparation one and he believes now he has the necessary players to challenge for promotion.

He admitted that this season had been a tough one, and things have not gone as he has planned, but he believes that he has learned to understand the players better. Indeed Neil Warnock only took over at the club in October 2016, and he will be hoping that this time around he will have the freedom to sign the players he wants.

He said that he has already identified some players that can strengthen the team and that negotiation will start as soon as the season is officially over. He said that if you want to win promotion in the Premier League, you will need to find players that can fight physically on the pitch. (more…)

BELLAMY DRUMS UP SUPPORT FOR MCNAUGHTON FAREWELL

Cardiff legend Craig Bellamy is drumming support for fellow legend Kevin McNaughton as he is set to get a farewell on Sunday.


The former Liverpool star has said that deserves the same kind of send-off that the fans of the club gave him.

Both soccer stars played together for three years, helping the club get promoted to the top flight. Bellamy was happy that they eventually got what the fans always wanted and McNaughton was very pleasedas that was his dream from the beginning.

Whilst the fans also adore McNaughton, he never received the kind of response Bellamy got when he resigned from the game as there was never the chance. He moved from the club to Bolton Wanderers and also played for Inverness.

Both stars are going to manage different teams this weekend for McNaughton’s benefit match at Cardiff City stadium. Hence, Bellamy is drumming up the support. (more…)
