It certainly wouldn’t be the worst signing that we could make in the grand scheme of things.
And as I said the other day when talking about Joe Hart, beggars can’t really be choosers in this situation. Sean Kennedy over at Blues Focus recently wrote an opinion piece about the possibility of the club bringing in Neil Etheridge to fill the gaping hole that is the goalkeeper position at the club right now.
He makes some excellent points and I implore you to give it a read. I personally think he would be better as a backup option rather than a first-choice, but wouldn’t totally be against the idea if things got desperate.
How many goalkeepers will Blues sign this summer?
The article itself sparked a little bit of a debate with some fans on social media about the idea of him being brought on board, with some of them a lot more positive than I am on the matter.
Maybe it’s just me being sentimental but I would like to see Joe Hart back at blues, as for Neil Etheridge it will all depend on Cardiff’s willingness to let him go for a reasonable transfer fee & his wage demands (if both those hurdles can be jumped then brilliant)

If you’ve watched him he’s quality and starts for most teams in this league

Etheridge is a very good keeper. He was also very good for Cardiff in the prem

What about you? Do you think we should sign Etheridge?
