Cardiff City have had somewhat a lop-sided feel to the squad for some time now but with the recent transfer dealings - the left wing position is one of real contention for Dave Jones:
1) Joe Ledley
Ledley's favoured position is on the wing, and he has held it for years. However, he has now switched inside to great effect. Nevertheless, moving Ledley to his favourite place, and bringing in Stephen McPhail is an option many managers would love to have.
Parry currently occupies the position, but will come under real scrutiny now. His consistency and delivery will have to improve if he is to keep his place. Although it is his favoured position, Parry is often shifted to the right or first to be dropped in midfield re-shuffles.
3) Peter Whittingham
Whitts is a natural left winger, and has a superb left foot. He hgasn't played all that much in this position for the Bluebirds but there is little doubt it is his most effective. He would love to make it his own, but drifts out of games too easily and is only now returning from a lengthy injury.
4) Quincy Owusu-Abeyie
Quincy is a natural attacker and loves to cut in from the left, remember his goal against us for Birmingham City - impresssive stuff. With Chopra, McCormack and Bothroyd like to spearhead the attack - Quincy looks likely to be used in this position as he previosuly was at Brum.
5) Ross McCormack
With Michael Chopra's return, Rosco is the man likely to be looking over his shoulder and may suffer for his own versatility. He has played on the left of a front 3 for Motherwell and impressed. Against Swansea City earlier this season, McCormack played on the left with Chops up-front and may again be employed in this role - after all, who wants to leave out a 13 goal top-scorer?
The Other Options
With all those other options available, no-one else seems to have a hope of securing the left wing position - however there are some who might have had a chance.... Tony Capaldi came on in this position against Arsenal recently, and has played there for Northern Ireland. Mark Kennedy has played most of his career there, only recently reverting to a full-back. Miguel Comminges looks more a midfielder than a defender and loves to get forward on either side. Stephen McPhail is a natural left-footer and is said to 'do a job' on the left - he'd love to be playing anywhere in the side right now!
