Cardiff City and Enckelman: A Good Match

Cardiff City and Enckelman: A Good Match

Cardiff City have had problems assigning the number 1 shirt this season with Middlesbrough loan 'keeper Ross Turnbull failing to impress early on, before Michael Oakes was unable to convince Dave Jones.


Kasper Schmeichel looked an excellent prospect but decided to return to Manchester City to fight for a first team place there.


After considering a number of options, Cardiff City decided to call on Peter Enckelman of Blackburn Rovers. A relatively old, but inexperienced goalkeeper having spent much of his career on the bench.


However, the former Aston Villa man has done well for the Bluebirds, collecting crosses effectively and looking assured with his handling. The defence has been in mean form (save for a crazy period of 9 shipped goals in three games!).


Enckelman is out of contract in the summer with Blackburn and will be free to leave. He has stated his desire to wait until the summer before deciding his future but will welcome an offer from Cardiff City at that time. Dave Jones also looks likely to go for the player, we know he'll fit in well and would cost nothing - a perfect signing for us.


Enckelman will probably replace Michael Oakes, with a young Premiership loan player competing for the number one jersey next season.

strange how his career just seems to have fizzled along without any major time being No1. Hope he does stay and does the business for you. He never recovered at Villa from a terrible mistake v our local rivals the blues!

Yeah think he would make a good signing, you've tried a number of 'keepers and he seems to be the best one!

personaly i would keep enckleman in goals, oakes as sub. we dont need to loan anyone, we got the young keeps such as, josh magginis, josh herring, and we aslo have the new polish kid edwin sak or something like that, and all seem to have a future ahead of them

oakes might be having his time near, but think of what he can still do, and he can help out with the kids i think i dont see why we should be looking to use up more of our tight wage budget on another keeper when it could be used to strengthen upfront or other areas
