The first of many, we hope....

Following on from Cardiff City's release from their transfer embargo, I have to admit that I am pleased as punch with our first new signing of the summer.  Lex Immers has today completed a permanent deal to join the club from Feyenoord and after his excellent performances and 5 goals during last seasons loan spell, I believe that City have signed a gem.

When he originally signed on loan for the club in January,  I hadn't heard of him before.  However, he quickly became a fans favourite with his attacking play and goalscoring.  Hopefully his signing is a message of intent and a sign of some ambition being shown by the club.   There is a need for more quality signings to be added to the squad, which in turn will hopefully be followed by a strong push for promotion to the Premier League next season.  The next key step for the club is to make sure that they make a wise appointment of a new Head Coach.  The right appointment could entice the stay away fans to return and I really hope that the club can continue to heal its relationship with our fractured fanbase.  Whilst the club has gone some way to improve this, the effects of the imposed red rebrand has still left a bitter aftertaste with some supporters despite the change back to blue.
