Cardiff City Striker Surplus

Cardiff City Striker Surplus

Cardiff City have gone from a team lacking in striking options to a side with more options than a gopher in the rainforest...

The arrival of new boy Warren Feeney on an initial loan signalled the exit of Luigi Glombard (out on loan to Oldham), but Cardiff have a huge depth of strikers but few established viable options:


Michael Chopra
Top scorer and first name on the teamsheet, Chops is the main forward and picked up his injury at a bad time for City.

Steven Thompson
First choice to partner Chopra, their partnership has been good but doubts remain over his goals contribution. Selfless team play and admirable work ethic label Thommo as an improtant cog in the Bluebirds wheel.

Warren Feeney
Not an inspiring season to date, just 2 league goals for struggling Luton. Has several games to turn it around but are Chopra's boots too big to fill...?

And the rest...

Kevin Campbell
Has deputised on numerous occasions, with no goals, little presence and a generally disappointing contribution. Surely will not get another playing contract with Cardiff and looks painfully slow.

Jason Byrne
Signed in January and scored on debut. Looks an intelligent player but has shown no menace and failed to link up effectively with any partner. Serious doubts remain over his future and needs to establish a clear role in the side.

Iwan Redan
On-loan Dutch striker with no first team chances. Left Holland in dubious circumstances and unlikely to stay past May. Big, strong and noticably absent from first team duties.

Matt Green
Pacy and lively looking, signed from Newport County but caused some problems for Championship defences already. Made his way to the bench already.

Andrea Feretti
Highly rated Italian, promised much but hasnt been given many chances. Tall and cultured, he has impressed at times for the reserves but too lightweight for first team action?

Luigi Glombard
Nippy French striker, loaned out for second time this season. He was hauled off at half time in his only league start and time looks nearly up on Bluebirds career. Some promise for reserves and has been praised for his attidude.




Of the six strikers behind the front three, Byrne and Green are those pushing for a substitutes role. From the rest, most will not be with us next season.

Was Dave Jones right to go with depth rather than quality.....?

Feretti should have been sent on loan somewhere
