Cardiff: Too Late For Loans?

Cardiff: Too Late For Loans?

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has been looking for a suitable centre-back to join his high-flying Bluebirds since last weekend when Glenn Loovens was dismissed and received an automatic 2 match ban.

It is now Thursday, and with no sign of any player having joined, it must indicate that Dave Jones has had trouble either targetting players or getting them to come to Cardiff.

Presumably, any player who joins on loan from this point, will join up for only 1 day (friday)training before taking their place in the Cardiff City line-up to face relegation-threatened Leed United on Saturday. This is scarely enough time to get on first-name terms with his defensive partner Roger Johnson, never mind forge a defensive understanding to keep Leeds quiet.

Any new team needs time to gel, and it is asking an awful lot of the player to step straight in to a play-off side and perform. It is always easier to step into a side playing well and Cardiff are unbeaten in four, collecting 10 points from a possible 12.

Nevertheless, surely an experienced defender must be the priority to deal with the difficult situation. In keeping with Dave Jones' traditions, we won;t know anything until the player signs and it's not beyhond the realms of possibility that Dave has a player in his office now ready for two days partnership training with his new back-four.


The sooner the player is recruited the better.
