Carl Curtis : Peter Whittingham


Peter Whittingham signed for Cardiff City from Aston Villa in 2007 and has made 339 appearances under four different permanent managers, Dave Jones, Malky Mackay, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Russell Slade, scoring 72 goals in the process.

Under each of these managers, Whittingham has been criticised by fans for his lethargic approach and an appearance that seems to be uncaring out on the pitch.

Some former players have accused Whittingham’s head of dropping and not being up for the fight but each manager has always made Whittingham a mainstay of their team and despite what fans opinions are he is usually a sure starter in Cardiff City’s eleven.

Set pieces have been a forte of Whittingham’s and he has scored some vital and spectacular goals for the Bluebirds.

For just a £350k outlay it is hard to dismiss what Whittingham has brought to the team but with speculation that Wolves are preparing a bid for him, is it time to wave goodbye and say thanks to Whitts and allow youngsters like Tom Adeyemi and Joe Ralls to stake their claims as regulars and hand the batten to the up and coming midfielders we have in our squad?
