Enckelman Released By Blackburn Rovers

Cardiff City goalkeeper Peter Enckelman has been released by his former club Blackburn Rovers paving the way for a move to Cardiff City.


Enckelman previously stated he was happy with the Bluebirds and the club recently confirmed they would be offering a permanent contract to the Finnish stopper.


Enckelman was a late addition to the squad after previous keepers Turnbull and Oakes failed to impress, and Kasper Schmeichel opted to return to Manchester City. The Finn made a good impact at Ninian Park, immediately shoring up a leaky defence and keeping a number of clean sheets.


Portsmouth seemed to identify a weakness in Enckelman and exploited it by testing him with numerous crosses. They were not well dealt with at all, and created several opportunities for Pompey - from one of which they scored.


Enckelman will compete with a young goalkeeper from the Premiership with Manchester United youngster Tom Heaton widely expected to link up with City.

Cant get rid of that image of that howler when playing for Villa against Birmingham. I do not think he is Prem class but more than competent in the Championship I think.

would you take him? I know he was partly to blame for the goal in the FA cup but then again, Kanu was very quick to the ball.
The Fear
He's almost certain to join Fear, whether we like it or not - one thing for sure, he LOVES the big games!!!
