Not another goalie

Cardiff City get through more goalkeepers than they sell burgers on a match day. Well, maybe not, but you get the idea.

Anyway, after two dreadful clangers in 4 matches that have probably cost us 6 points, Dimi Kantstopalot (sorry Konstantopolous) has managed to get himself injured - much to the relief of the City faithful.

Problem is, of our 3 other keepers, two are injured, and the other one's only 3ft 2in and never played a competitive match for City. So Dave Jones has been out and about, and brought Steve Taylor in on a months loan from Aston Villa. He's currently 3rd choice at Villa, and has only had 2 outings this year I believe (so in form then). I do recall he was deputy to David Seaman at Arsenal for a while, and I remember being impressed when I saw him back then.

Anyway, he can't be worse than Dimi.

Wurzels this w/e when we play Bristol City at their gaffe on Sunday.

Up the City!

Recent City 'keepers - in no particular order: There are just the ones I can remember!

  • Martyn Margetson (@ City - goalkeeping coach)
  • Steve Taylor (@ City - on loan from Villa where he's 3rd choice)
  • Michael Oakes (can't remember)
  • Tony Warner (now at Hull - worse than Dimi)
