Bent for Birmingham?

With the sort of inevitability that only Cardiff City can muster, the great new hope in front of goal, Marcus Bent, has apparently turned down The Bluebirds for Birmingham at the 11th hour.

By all accounts he'd agreed to sign, and it was only a matter of a medical at Ninian Park today, but he didn't turn up (like a lot of our strikers), and this evening reports were linking him to Brum.

Well good riddance I say. If he's got that level of commitment let him go and stuff him. To be honest I wasn't that excited about the prospect of him anyway - easy enough to say now he's turned us down I know, but true.

It leaves us with serious problems though, with 3 weeks before the start of the season, and the absence of a top quality striker not yet resolved. Coming a few days after RF left, also at the 11th hour is a bit gut wrenching. What is it about Cardiff City? Erm, could be the lure of the Premiership. No loyalty in footie these days.
