Cardiff Striker Hunt Continues

Cardiff City's hunt for their elusive striker seems to have been ongoing for eternity.


A multitude of names have been linked, while several have moved elsewhere (Leon Best, and Stoke's Jon Parkin who will line-up against us this weekend).


We know several to have been genuine targets, Rowan Vine and Steve Howard have both impressed Dave Jones and would fit the bill - although neither Birmingham City or Derby County are particularly willing to part with their players.



One name, mentioned regularly in recent weeks is Andy Cole. The veteran striker was a January target for the Bluebirds last season, and has since been released by Portsmouth. However, Peter Ridsdale has denied the rumour - this time a more forceful 'no' than in the past.



We know P.Riddy is not a fan of 'open transfers' where the fans and press know the target etc, and has such been denied speculation regarding most players. However, he may look a little foolish of Cardiff did sign Cole after he told the Western Mail:



'Andy Cole is not the sort of player we`re looking for at this moment in time.'





I for one am glad. We have an experienced striker in Robbie Fowler, and, though we would love a proven goalscorer - we are lacking in pace and presence up-front and signing Andy Cole would be a massive gamble.

All irrelevant, as we were apparently never interested !

I think going for Andy cole would be a mistake, now you have got fowler, as good a player cole is/was surely you need young legs to do the running for fowler whilst learning off him at the same time. also paying out to lots of "big" wages isnt great business.

he's well past it, and we're well out of it. He's determined to stay in the prem, which is crazy. I wouldnt have him league 1 !!!

we need some young legs, who will do the running, but also will score the goals
