Cardiff City have been scoring goals freely all season, and the likes of Doncaster Rovers and Leeds United will atest that the Bluebirds can be very difficult to live with once we get our noses in front.
No team in the Cahmpionship has more goals than Cardiff City, but it is the defensive frailties that have seen QPR open up a gap at the summit while Watford have also been scoring freely and Swansea City's lofty league standing is based on a miserly defence and ability to boss midfield.
This is no surprise, given the wealth of attacking otptions to City. In attack, the lynchpin Jay Bothroyd oozes class and has long had the quality, if not the mentality, to play at a higher level. Add to that the glamour signing of Craig Bellamy, the speedster having impressed at Manchester City last season - and goals must be expected.
Except that it doesn't end there, Michael Chopra is probably our most natural goalscorer, and has played in the Premiership - with realistic aspirations of returning to that level. He adds guile, pace and sharpness - giving defenders numerous headaches. Then there's Andy Keogh, the on-loan striker from Wolves arrives with glowing recommendation from the West Midlands, and McCarthy was reluctant to let him leave.
Whats more, is that the Cardiff midfield is also overflowing with attacking talent in the likes of Peter Whittingham (top Championship scorer last year), Chris Burke (a lively and dangerous winger). Add to that the buly presence of Seyi Olofinjana and the loan maestro Jason Koumas, capable of unlocking defences with ease and scoring many himself - Cardiff City can always find a goal from somewhere.
And so it has proved so far, with the goals for column responsible for our 2nd place in the table. Despite the successes so far, it is completely obvious that there is so much more to come, and of the attacking players identified above - only one can genuinely claim to have had a good season so far.
