Lennie looking to feed the Goat?

Last updated : 02 June 2003 By Michael Morris
John Robinson, Matt Jones etc are all still in the system but the big name coming from the Sunday press is Shaun Goater. The Man City striker is out of contract and on his way out of Maine Rd (as was, now they have a new ground).

The only comments from Lennie say

"I might be interested in someone who can lead the attack and get goals - it's easier said than done to find someone, though. As for who will come to Cardiff, that will depend on the budget figures to be discussed between myself and Sam Hammam."

It's claimed Goater is a main target, the 33 year old has scored 104 goals in 189 starts for Man City. Also linked is Dean Windass, he was on loan at Sheff Utd but was not in the play off final squad, it's claimed Lennie has had secret talks.

These rumours may have some fact in them, they may not. The cynic in me treats these claims as rumours and nothing else.

The two players mentioned were not the only two linked players. In the Sunday press we are connected to

John Moncur (36) West Ham midfielder, as well as Danny Coles and Scott Murray of Bristol City. Several Wimbledon players includng Joel McAnuff, Gino Padula of QPR and Gary Speed!

It's all speculation.
