GK: Alex Smithies
The goalkeeping position is one that’s tough to call right away.
In the last 15 years, Cardiff have had some excellent goalkeepers. Scotland international David Marshall stands out the most, with the veteran shot-stopper starting in-between the sticks during some pretty good times for the Bluebirds.
Neil Etheridge would have also been a contender for this spot having been integral in their promotion-winning campaign in 2017/18, but as he represents the Philippines, we cannot include him here.
Instead, we have gone with Alex Smithies, who has been first-choice shot-stopper for the last two seasons now.
He is a steady performer at this level and has done a decent job in goal for the large part.
