CITY LINKED WITH SPL KEEPER?

CARDIFF CITY LOOKING TO SIGN NEW GOALKEEPER WITH 30-YEAR-OLD STOPPER IN WARNOCK’S SIGHTS
By Lee Connor

Championship promotion hopefuls Cardiff City are looking to sign Motherwell goalkeeper Trevor Carson, according to well respected journalist Alan Nixon.


The Bluebirds are in pole position to seal promotion back to the Premier League after seeing rivals Fulham conceded in the last minute to hand Wolves promotion and give Neil Warnock’s men a huge boost in their own quest for the top flight.

And now Warnock is looking to add some much needed depth to his squad in the form of Motherwell stopper Carson, who has been in excellent form for the Scottish side this season and delivered consistently top performances.

Carson, who has had a career which has seen him take in a whole bunch of clubs since starting his career with Sunderland, will no doubt be keen to make a move to the Championship or even the Premier League if the opportunity represents itself.

The 30-year-old found his feet over the last two seasons in England with Hartlepool before making the move to Motherwell and securing his spot in the first team this time around to excellent effect. Cardiff themselves are looking for cover in the goalkeeping department, and manager Warnock will no doubt see Carson as the ideal sort of signing to play number two.

Well happy with Etheridge but not confident in Camp as a back up....I think he will leave. Murphy is fine for a cheap 3rd option

I thought I saw us linked with Sam Johnstone a few weeks back.

He's a fantastic keeper and I'd be well chuffed with him if we go up

Despite the links, I think it will be another summer of Neil Warnock springing a few surprises! ;)

Always interesting to see who is out there but at this stage to be taken with a pinch of salt! :ayatollah:

I would prefer Danny Ward at Liverpool 6'3" and Welsh but that's my opinion

Been told a deal has been done for Dean Henderson the Man UTD youngster on loan at Shrewsbury.

Out of contract and a very good prospect.

Would be surprised I've read he is going to Arsenal.

I'd expect us to sign 2 keepers if we go up, 1 if we don't.
My thoughts on the re-branding??

Been on the Sunderland forum the last few months having s look they say camp is absolutely shocking.. orobably doesn’t help going to a team like Sunderland but they said he’s the worst keeper in years!! Hopefully we get rid of him in the summer.. how things could be different if we signed him fit instead of injured

I think etheridge is decent enough. Unless we can really upgrade on him I'd say no point

I assumed camp would be out of contract did he sign for longer than one year?

Edit just googled we gave him a 2 year deal :banghead:

Etheridge will be missing for 5 weeks next season representing the Philippines, so I think it's essential we bring in a top quality keeper. Who we bring in depends on what division we're in next season though.

I’m totally with you on Etheridge though. I’ve stuck up for him from the very beginning when he was made a bit of a scapegoat and he’s got better and better as the season’s gone on. A superb signing on a free.

If we do go up I wouldn't mind a cheeky bid for relegated West Brom keeper Ben Foster. West Brom will be looking to reduce their wage bill and he is a very good, experienced PL keeper. Etheridge can continue to learn and improve alongside him.

A very good point Tonteg and I raised an eyebrow when it was announced, that's a fair amount of time to be out and also of course with the risk of injury. I've been impressed with NE since preseason and he's only got better. Quality cover is essential but also as important is having someone wanting your number 1 shirt to keep you sharp.

Etheridge only likely to miss around 3 weeks really.

during the quietest period of the season too, will miss 1, possible 2 matches if we are in the prem.


regardless, we obviously need to sign a keeper anyway next season, someone good enough to take the #1 jersey.

Eh,That was a joke mind :thumbup:

Hennessey would do just fine.( not because he's Welsh but a good keeper and becoming available by look of things )

I'm happy with Etheridge equally as good as Marshall at shot stopping but unlike Marshall comes off his line to collect balls. His kicking has also improved

Previous clubs of his doesn't inspire confidence, but, I'm sure this is just paper talk. Imagine how many players are going to be linked to us if we go up!!
