Cardiff City make the trip South for tomorrow's game against Plymouth Argyle and will come up against some familiar players currently at Home Park.
Chris Barker was a Cardiff City player for several seasons during the Sam Hammam era - we paid a hefty £600k for the left back and despite being a consistent performer he did not quite make the impact fans had hoed for until a brief loan spell at Stoke City saw him return fitter and full of confidence. 'Chewy' went on to be player of the season for the 2004-05 season but Dave Jones was never a big fan of the full-back. A loan spell at Colchester Utd followed before Barker moved to QPR on a free transfer. Barker was a good player, and did well for Cardiff City - he is likely to receive a good reception from our travelling fans.
Simon Walton came to Cardiff on loan from Charlton when Scimeca first got injured. He was extremely poor despite a decent reputation but spent most of his time suspended after collecting 2 red cards and a yellow in his 6 games for the Bluebirds. Following his departure, Walton angered fans by posting seemingly unpleasant comments about the club on his MySpace page - though he later denied this. Walton shouldn't expect a warm reception from the travelling Bluebirds.
Steve MacLean was a Cardiff City player for a brief period last season. He was a free transfer from Sheffield Wednesday but missed a penalty (the first of his career) on his Blubirds debut and never recovered. MacLean certainly didnt enjoy his time with the club and suffered a crisis of confidence, losing all attacking instincts and showing a poor touch before a £500k move to Plymouth to rejoin former boss Paul Sturrock. The deal represents one of the best transfers in recent Bluebirds history!
