Turner impressed by Lappin

While Cardiff's addition of England international Fraizer Campbell caught the eye last week, Bluebirds defender Ben Turner believes Simon Lappin is also an important acquisition by Malky Mackay.

Ben Turner: Believes Lappin is a very good left-back

The versatile 31-year-old, who was a free agent after leaving Norwich, joined the Championship table-toppers after impressing during a successful loan spell with the club at the end of 2012.

And Turner is looking forward to working with Lappin again.

"The fans won't have seen too much of him yet but he's a very good left-back in my opinion," Turner told the club's official website.

"I played with him in one game at Birmingham and I've trained with him a lot - he's a very accomplished footballer.

"He's tidy on the ball, can defend and hits a good ball and I think he's exactly the sort of player we're looking for as we were probably short numbers in terms of the back four.

"He ticks that box, but he's also a very good player, so I'm looking forward to working with him further."

City travel to Huddersfield on Saturday with a 10-point cushion at the top of the table.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
