Inspired by the recent threads about the fortunes of our recent outgoing players, I thought it might be worth having one about former Bluebirds who've hung up their boots.

For instance...

Earnie is now a UEFA licensed coach, and the Assistant Coach of Fresno FC. He looks in good shape and is in the habit of posting motivational quotes on his social media pages.

Anyone following Kenwyne Jones on Instagram will see that he's mostly on the lash in Trinidad & Tobago, where he's also an "Investor", "Motivational Speaker" and the Assistant Coach of their U17's national side.

Legendary City songwriter and striker Steve Thompson has carved himself out a career in the media in Scottish football, and on that basis it's not surprising he punctuates his punditry with being a bit of a piss-artist

Thommo's mate SuperKev, arguably our favourite ever scotchman, is of course an amateur artist, whose work is available at Products - https://kevmac.bigcartel.com/products and if his social media is anything to go by, he has retired in style to drink with his mates and cuddle his scruffy dog. He is also a coach at youth team Kirriemuir Thistle FC and still popular with the boys at City

Mark Hudson, who always seemed a very sensible bloke, has failed to compromise himself on social media and can be seen coaching the hapless Huddersfield Town as they mount their battle against Championship relegation. It seems he likes a drive-thru Starbucks.

Hudson predecessor and scorer of one of the best own goals I've seen, City legend Darren Purse now has hair, and a variety of jobs in grass-roots football. He is Oxford Utd U16's coach, Rushden & Diamond's U18 Manager and the Director of Football at the Malcolm Arnold Academy.

Midfield powerhouse Gavin Rae followed my footsteps into the recruitment industry, which to be honest is a slippery slope into a load of spurious nonsense and this is apparently what he does these days: -

Bloody hell that really is Pursey isn’t it. I had to cover his hair up to check.

He was an estate agent a coupe of years ago, had a shop in Llandaff North.

I’m not a fan of these private ‘academies’ to be honest. They seem to all have a very scattergun approach, preying on parents excitement that little Kayden will be the next Gareth Bale, having to spend a small fortune on training kit etc and ferrying them around the country every other week. Just in hope they might get the one in a thousand that might end up having a trial for Yeovil.

He was indeed. Had Wayne Rooney in his pocket at Wembley for the Wales match.

He was obviously very humble, and I chatted with him in the old Les Croups one night after a home City match and within about two sentences he asked me 'how did I play?'!!

He'd had a very good game so I told him and he seemed really chuffed!

He had a brilliant game the day we beat the jacks at their place when Bellamy scored the late winner.

In 2015, Warren Feeney finally sent his shooting boots to the charity shop, where they were eagerly snapped up by Gary Madine.

Feeney is now the manager of Northern Irish Football League team Ards, who ply their trade in the NIFL Championship, having been relegated last season.
