Time For Cardiff City To Turn To 'Leader' Purse?

Time For Cardiff City To Turn To 'Leader' Purse?

Cardiff City have one game remaining of this season and need a solitary point to grasp a guaranteed playoff position. We cannot afford to wait for Preston or Burnley to slip up, our destiny is in our own hands and we must make this game count. A trip to Sheffield Wednesday is not an overly daunting task and you`d normally back us to get a point at Hillsborough. Howwever a disappointing run of form and results has seen the jitters among Cardiff City fans and players and we could realistically miss out - this would be devastating after a great season so far.


Many have suggested it is the mental toughness of our young squad which is not suited to the pressure at this end of the season. Of our starting XI, only Kennedy and Rae are above 30 meaning we have a very young team. The experience of McPhail, Scimeca, Purse and even Paul Parry is often left on the sidelines but with the Roger Johnson / Gabor Gyepes partnership looking less assured than ever - is it time for Club Captain Dareren Purse to make a comeback?


Purse certainly has leadership, determination and experience. He is a gritty campaigner and has been there before. You certainly know what you're going to get from Purse and with 11 goals shipped in three games - form alone could seem him in-line for a recall. The fans and the club owe Darren a lot, he is a superb guy and ambassador for the club - I believe he would simply love to be called upon in this situation, and he is the ideal man to step up.

Hi bluebird04. I'll just confirm that you are NOT Darcy Blake, having spoken to him - he has never posted on this website. As for your point, would be very suprised if Whitts went to Wolves, he barely looks a Championship player at the moment....

Parry has been playing through a knee injury, but I cant help feeling there's something else - he was our most dangerous player at times last year! Shouldn't lose that at his age!
