Routledge To Finally Get His Chance

Wayne Routledge will taste regular first team action, as he's joined Cardiff on a two month loan.

He's joined in time to play in their televised clash on Saturday against Plymouth Argyle, and his second appearance could come as quick as November 30, when they play Swansea.

Any Vital Bluebirds are more than welcome to let us know how he gets on.

i must admit i think in this case the lad might not be good enough but he is only 23 (I think!) and training with the likes of A Young and Milner can only be a good thing. In fairness to Wayne he hasn't really been given a chance so I hope he gets some good match time on loan. However I have full faith in MoN and if Wayne is good enough he will get his chance one day.

Good luck to the guy, I hope he does well. As much as I like his style of play, I just don't think he's good enough at it to be able to break into our side, particularly with the likes of Milner and Young dominating our wide positions - and the likelihood MON would more likely play NRC than an actual Right-Winger if Milner did happen to get injured.

Better than remaining at Villa Park playing one or two reserve team games, and maybe sitting on the bench as an unused first team substitute. I dont think that he's likely to get a look in, certainly not until he develops his all-round game.

Me Gruck, I've long said that he doesn't have that final telling ball in his armoury. Speedy, skilfull, attributes that terrorise opposition defences, but then he wastes it all with the poor cross, wasted pass, or lack of a finish.

LOL Mayo, I think Nige is the first backup player for every position on the pitch.

Its just a confidence thing... All players need it to be at there best. Once he's had regular footie, he'll come back feeling much more lively. Watch this space for this young english talent!
