sandman Funny that Ali has gone there given that their back up keeper was none other than Jonathan Bond.

He must be sick of Ali taking his place.

Tis quite interesting! I always wonder how good Bond actually is. He was rated well enough by Watford fans as I recall but hes never really had a proper chance at a club yet. The man is 26. Maybe hes destined to be a back up keeper.

Peterborough fans spoke quite highly of him during his loan there - played nearly 40 games I think. I think he is one of those keepers that needs to make a decision about making decent money at Prem/Champ level without ever playing or dropping into L1 establishing himself as a number 1 for a couple of years and seeing where it takes him. No-one in the top 2 divisions will buy him now as anything other than back-up.

Hes gonna have to do a lot more to get a spot as a 3rd choice Prem keeper surely?

Probably but PL clubs often make random signings as 3rd choice senior keeper as they are really unlikely ever to play - in most cases, they would probably even play a youth keeper rather than play the 3rd choice.

Usually because they are short of the required number of English players

leon My god, Cardiff play shit lumpen football.


Just turned it on to watch the last 5 and first thing I saw is Morrison just manhandling a forward. Sums them up really

Not an especially great score for either team really. Colin’s days may be numbered

Just seen the Arter sending off. Comical bit of play acting, fully deserved

It was an appalling game really. Cardiff just hoofed the ball at most opportunities. Fulham just passed the ball around and Arter behaved like a twat.

Caught the last ten of the derby vs Cardiff match

Absolutely dreadful. Don’t think either will be bothering the play offs this year

Afobe out for the season for Bristol - won’t help their promotion chances considering they’re only left with Diedhiou now

WBA come from behind twice again today, lost count of how many times they`ve done that this season, maybe Gomes should have a word with Bilic.

Sadly was keep a closer eye on that than I’d hoped after yesterday’s performance, and pleased to see hudders lose yet again
