Crewe Thoughts On Cardiff's Turnbull

Vital Cardiff City speaks to Crewe Alexandra fan Matthew Owen about our new on-loan goalkeeper Ross Turnbull.

Turnbull spent last season on loan with the Railwaymen and we asked Vital Crewe journalist Matt for his opinions:





Thoughts on Ross Turnbull?


Average Keeper is Ross Turnbull, he came to Crewe to get first team games but couldnt hold down the number 1 spot. He played half and Ben Williams our current number 1 played the other and in all fairness there wasnt much difference between the pair.

He only trained part time with us, he spent 3 days training with Middlesbrough and came to us on friday for weekend games and just reported with the rest of the squad for midweek fixtures.



Strengths and weaknesses?


Decent at coming for crosses but was suspect with his kicking and got beat fairly easy from long range. He may do okay for you but he played with a defence that was rubbish to be fair - if you have a decent defence may bring the best out of him.



Would Crewe have wanted him back?


Doubt we would have him back, already have 2 established keepers and 1 promising youngster.





Not the most commending review of a goalkeeper. The Railwaymen conceded 47 goals in the 29 games he played for Crewe, which does not compare favourably on the goalkeeper. We do already have David Forde and Michael Oakes at the club and Turnbull may just be cover. He is highly rated by some and will be looking to improve his reputation with the Bluebirds.

Well that doesnt sound good at all - we now have three back-up keepers and no-one to start.
