Where did it all go wrong?

Where did it all go wrong?

Week in week out all we ever do is talk about how bad our defence is. It’s a shambles; leaking goals; sloppy goals; defence errors and even new Manager Neil Warnock after 12 games in charge is fed up of our defence.

So was it good or bad business by CCFC? and Where Do we go from here?

Cardiff pushed and pushed David Marshall out, put him in the public eye and even some fans were backing Cardiff’s committee by saying what good business it was to sell Marshall.

David Marshall was sold to Hull City for £2.5m upfront, plus £2.5m if he makes 25 Premier League Appearances and Hull City must stay up. Remember City said they wanted £10m, but we had never ever actually had a proper bid until Hull put one in.

For me even if we get £5m for him, which does not look likely, we have lost the backbone of Cardiff City and lost many valuable Championship points which is costing us big time and in money.

For me this is where it really went wrong for Cardiff City on the field, the sale of David Marshall.

We even sold a fairly good keeper in Simon Moore, so no, it was not good business by Cardiff City and once again they’ve messed up in the transfer market, will they ever learn?

We have Neil Warnock now who has been given limited funds for January, and he’s been told that he has to get rid of Bruno Manga plus many other City players and he has so much to do. Thankfully Warnock has a lot of experience and this coming January I have faith in him.

Warnock has two years at Cardiff City and I really hope he stays that long.

Warnock has been given Ben Amos as our number one on high wages and conceded more goals than any other goalie in the Championship last season for Bolton.
We have Amos on loan from Bolton and Bolton fans who don’t want him back,they said he makes errors after errors and cost them big time last season.

Ben Amos had some experience and started well, but was coming off the back of a debilitating season with struggling Bolton and his confidence looks to have been affected by a couple of errors.

Cardiff need an imposing figure and a strong voice to a defence that can be too quiet and passive,to find that kind of goalie will cost money.
Yet experience is needed between the goalposts. Cardiff said they had restocked the goalkeeping department well but the three goalkeepers left were lacking serious exposure to the Championship,for me that was dreadful decisions by our transfer committee.

We are already being linked with other goalies,surely this will be no good for Ben Amos’s confidence.
