This time last year.....

Last updated : 22 June 2002 By Michael Morris
In June 2001 at this particular time City had made only one signing. Neil Alexander had joined from Livingstone.

In the last week of June amid a flurry of speculation we signed Spencer Prior. The following day we signed Graham Kavanagh and confirmed the signing of Layton Maxwell and followed that up with a £2m bid for Brighton's Bobby Zamora.

No promises for such activity this time around but for those thinking Cardiff City had become the forgotten man of football just have a little more patience.

Early July brought Leon Jeanne and Ian Atkins. Whatever happened to them?

There was plenty of speculation at the time. I can only assume the World Cup has stolen the thunder of the rumour mongers.
