    unrelated to this story but anyone seen cardiff have signed le fondre?? maybe grabban has made up his mind- we can only hope!
    Yeah think we have moved on from Grabban now with Le Fondre, Macheda and Guerra all signed for around one million in total which presents better value than three million for Lewis. Solksjaer likely to play a 2-0-8 formation I suspect with Kenwyne Jones, Nicky Maynard, Joe Mason and Fraiser Campbell all on our books too. Fancy doing swaps with a couple of midfielders."
