Thread: Bacuna

  1. #1

    Bacuna

    Right back - crap
    Behind the striker - crap
    Attacking midfield - ok-ish
    Deep defensive midfield - depends who heís played with but generally crap
    Centrally - hit and miss but shown some real promise in some games when given space.

    Itís clear heís going to feature quite often next season

    I donít see where he fits in MM 3 at the back system though

    Re: Bacuna

    Oddly right wingback may suit him but MM seems to see him as an attacking midfielder, don't really see it myself.

    Perhaps one to move on especially if his reported high wages see true, we have a few great lads in the U23 squad bring them on now Mick , please .

    I'm not sure if we'll be able to "move on" an average player on high wages with two years left of his contact.

    I think he's ok he puts a shift in and he's a tough player that puts himself about.
    He scared the shit out of the sweaty sacks sorry i mean swansea jacks in the first half

    Trouble is that heís a McCarthy favourite.

    Could it be bite the bullet time again before the start of next season re. Players still under contract? Make the ones not required an offer to square up the remaining time left on their contract if we can’t transfer them in the usual way. I know it’d cost initially but it wipes the slate clean. Just don’t bring Russell Slade in to do the honours this time.

    Have to say I couldn't see why we bought him in the first place. Desperation?

    I agree, it was one of Warnock's 'I have to sign somebody in January, pay too much, and pay high wages' signings. He has played a lot of games for us though in the last two seasons.

    Damour hardly played for us in the first part of that season, so we needed another central midfielder.

    Bacuna has been at Cardiff for two and a half seasons but itís still unclear what his best position is or what his strengths are supposed to be. Thatís a player Warnock bought for £4 million weíre talking about.

    Re: Bacuna

    I think Bacuna should be off our books ASAP.

    If Demour wasn't needed the first half of the season why replace him?

    Because we only had three other players in that position (Arter, Gunnarsson, and Ralls).

    Running around. In terms of stats, he's our least creative central midfielder, an average passer, an average tackler and not very accurate in front of goal.

    He has never been worth the money we paid for him.
