There’s no secret that Cardiff City are lacking a powerful striker capable of scoring goals – this does appear to be under address.


The departure of Aaron Ramsey has also left a hole in our midfield options. The youngster did not play all that many games last term, but shone when he did. He was also used primarily in a wide midfield role rather than his preferred central position.


Cardiff City are pushing to add a replacement midfielder to the squad but the only player to have talks so far has been Remco Van der Schaaf – a Dutch central midfielder. Is this really the position we need strengthening?


I would say no. In central midfield we already have McPhail, Rae, Scimeca while I would also like to see Ledley used in this position. Dennehy and Darcy Blake are young options to cover central midfield. On the left we have Whittingham, Parry and Ledley but on the right there are no natural options.


Whitts and Parry both do a decent job on the right, cutting in but it is highly predictable and with Ledley on the other flank we don’t get to the bye-line often enough.


I would prefer to trust our options in central midfield and boost the squad with a natural right winger. It’s been a while since we had one with Willo Flood and Malvin Kamara failing to nail down starting positions.



Do you agree? Do we need another midfielder at all? Will Scimeca be fit enough?

  • When did we last have a ‘good’ winger? Jason Bowen? I liken Ainsworth and Low but they were both limited. Langley gets award for the worst !

  • McPhail, Rae, Scimeca does not sound overly appealing to me. Perhaps the thinking is that Jon Brown can play a role as a winger?

  • No – we don’t need to add another mid-fielder .. I assume that Paul Parry will be returning to his natural non-striking role .. who we need is Ched Evans. Or if we can’t have him another STRIKER who actually scores goals!

  • Perhaps Dave knows something we dont. all part of his masterplan. the names on the team sheet might not be there in august……………………………
    Out with the old and in with the young if the Prem is the target.
    even though Scimeca was injured most of the season i didnt rate him much when he did play

  • Langley the worst, maybe, but he did score some cracking goals….. when he wasn’t losing the ball!! 🙂 why dot we give Ronaldo a call , i hear he’s open to offers!! lol
