After an up-and-down season, Cardiff City finished comforably mid-table. A scintillating start was followed by a dismal end and the same players looked half as effective as previously.
VitalCardiff brings you an end of season review of each player. If you disagree then feel free to leave a comment at the foot of this article or e-mail Vital Bluebirds with an alternative review!!
The reviews will be published every weekday between 10-11am:
Number 1: NEIL ALEXANDER
Neil was Cardiff City`s longest serving player having joined from Scottish side Livingstone in 2001. He cost £200k and endured a tough time in Bluebirds colours at first. Doubts wer cast over his ability to collect crosses and command his area, nevertheless, his shot-stopping was good and he fought back several times to regain the Number 1 jersey from the likes of Tony Warner and Martyn Margetson.
The 2006-2007 season turned out to be Alexander`s last for Cardiff. It was, however, his best in South Wales and most probably in his career. Some phenomenal saves as well as an increased awareness and confidence saw Alexander ranked amongst the top 5 keepers in the Championship for much of the season.
Some top class performances, coupled with a marked improvement in consistency saw Alex linked with other clubs, Coventry and Norwich foremost yet it was his desire to remain in South Wales. It was not to be though and Alexander felt unable to accept Dave Jones` offer, negotiations broke down and the offer was withdrawn leaving Alexander free to leave at the end of the season.
The final season, was a very good one for 'Scotland`s number 1`, his best to date. Although he lost the position towards the end of the season, he was part of the side that impressed so many and at 29 is coming into his peak.
A loyal and dedicated servant of Cardiff City, we wish Neil all the best for his future.
