Cardiff Squad Review: W Feeney

Cardiff Squad Review: W Feeney

After an up-and-down season, Cardiff City finished comfortably 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:








37 Warren Feeney


Warren Feeney arrived at the tail end of last season on an 'emergency loan` deal. He was brought in from relegation-threatened Luton Town as cover for the injured Michael Chopra and as a last ditch effort to clinch a play-off spot. Feeney was due to be out-of-contract during the summer and as such, the Hatters demanded a loan fee so in fact Feeney cost us around £100k.

He was bought to fire the goals we desperately needed, but had only scored two all season himself and it looked a peculiar decision to go for someone not known for goalscoring and certainly not prolific is recent seasons.

As it turned out, Chopra recovered so Feeney`s chances were limited. He ended the season having made 4 starts and 2 substitute appearances but failed to find the net in any. It was a tough ask to arrive at a club in such a dismal run of form, and the Irishman had little service to work with.


So far, we have seen a great work rate and determination from Feeney. This won`t be enough to secure him first team action (just ask Steve Thompson) and Feeney`s place does look under threat. He will get a chance to prove himself and show he can score goals, but needs to take every possible chance if he is to challenge the starting 2.
