Ex-Cardiff Man Alex-Nothing To Prove


Former Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Alexander makes his first return to the club since his controversial exit from Ninian Park over the summer.


Alexander was Cardiff's number one for several year but was offered a new contract based on an increased wage only if he was first choice again. Disappointed, Alex felt forced out and eventually ended up at Championship rivels Ipswich Town.

Neil told the Ipswich Evening Star:



'I have got nothing to prove going back to Ninian Park. Cardiff know what I am capable of, and I like to think that I had a good rapport with the fans.'

'I will be going back to enjoy myself - and hopefully to collect three points.'

'During my six years at Cardiff I made a lot of friends and it will be nice to see them again.'


'They should be doing better than what they are.'





Cardiff City have struggled in the goalkeeping department since Alexander's departure. Michael Oakes and David Forde have yet to impress while Ross Turnbull's loan from Middlesborough was somewhat of a disaster. Kasper Schmeichel on loan from Manchester City is the current occupant of the number 1 shirt, but has only featured twice - conceeding 4 goals.


We have not replaced Alexander, and three goalkeepers used this early in the season is not indicative of a settled side - we need consistency in that area.



Alexander's always had his critics at Cardiff, but produced good form last season and formed a good partnership with Purse, Loovens and co at the back.


All the best to Neil, after this game of course.....!
