    Re: Uche Ikpeazu?

    I was told it was an icey patch which is possible? I hope it was because it doesn't look good otherwise

    Just like Leo Fortune-West
    I can understand why a big centreback would rate a player like Ikpeazu, but, as a City fan, I’ve had more than enough of very strong and awkward at my club in the last decade.

    Uche Ikpeazu - go on, see how many times you can say his name in 30 seconds?

    Flint actually coped OK with him considering how Ikpensu put himself about.
    Have a look at the BBC match updates and you’ll see how many free kicks Ikpensu gave away. He should have been sent off.
    Booked after38 minutes and then 6-7 fouls after.
    He gave McGuiness a really hard time though. Was a big lesson for him.

    His finishing was poor though.

    That was my main impression of his performance

    In fairness, you do seem to believe the opposition should have at least one man sent off in pretty much every game City play (and you reckon City should be awarded at least one penalty, and most opposition goals should be disallowed), so that's hardly a reflection on Ikpeazu.

    That’s me too. To a certain extent, but I’m usually a bit more forgiving of a bit of dirty play as I think the game has gone ‘soft’ .

    However if you read back on the BBC report/commentary you’ll see what I mean.

    At the time I was struggling to see how he’d got away with it and just when it seemed it was going to happen Warnock took him off.

    He was certainly the dirtiest player I’ve seen against us for some time.

    He was physical alright and I can remember him being a real handful. I was only yanking City123's chain, his comments in the match threads always tickle me.

    The lad up front for Bristol was another handful on Saturday. Semenyo I think? If his finishing improves a little, he'll be a player. Just turned 22, apparently. I thought he put the physical development of some of City's youngsters into perspective. Drameh couldn't cope with him at all.

    Yeah. I like him. He scored a couple of beauties against Fulham. He quickish too.

    Someone like him would be excellent.
    We’ve had lots of big players, but some pace to go with it would make a lot of difference.

    Sort of thing I was hoping for from Vassell 😞

    His brother is also highly rated and in our under 18s

    Fingers crossed !

    A reflection of the poor refereeing in the Championship I'd say

    WOL claiming the club contacted Boro this morning to register an interest. When I first saw the headline I thought it was just one of those circular rumours - WOL mentioned Ikpeazu being made available for transfer by Wilder a few days ago in a 'round up' piece - mainly because we had shown an interest last summer. Those type of incidental comments usually get picked up by marginal 'news' sites and turned into something they aren't. But maybe this is genuine.

    But Ikpeazu is not a Moore replacement. If anything he would be another Collins (but a bit taller) - a journeyman, trier, experienced, not much pace and doesn't score a lot! Probably a 'great lad'.

    WOL also saying Boro prefer to sell (valuation of £750k mentioned) but we only want a loan to the end of the season. West Brom (!), Millwall and Hull also supposed to be interested. I can see him going to Hull now they have their new owners, new manager, an end to their transfer restrictions, and a new budget burning a hole in their pockets. He wouldn't even need to move house!
    These rumours start from websites like 'The 72' and 'Football League World'. They are quickly added to NewsNow - here is the Cardiff City page - https://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Sport/Fo...p/Cardiff+City

    Soon after Wales Online, who use this resource as their main source of Cardiff City information (remember the days when reporters actually broke real exclusives and spoke to players, managers etc. Terry Phillips was a real reporter, the kids these days are commentators on info they find on social media and other websites).

    The way WalesOnline then spam facebook and twitter with clickbait based on a rumour from another website is so annoying. They develop an article based on rumour, old comments and waffle.

    Ikpeazu is shit basically. Wouldn’t sign him in a month of Sundays.

    If we do sign him (and I desperately hope not) it will seem as if we can't escape the long cold finger of Warnock's influence.

    Someone better check out the local clog suppliers to see if any orders have been placed recently.

    Well according to a poster elsewhere Morison really wants him and has asked the board to back him..

    How right you are boss. Rumours quickly become a source or inside. As well as WoL that Alan Nixon is terrible with his scattergun rumour starters.

    Read on he other board that Morison is quite keen on him.

    So i had a quick look

    Re: Uche Ikpeazu?

    The unfortunate thing is we have some fans just believe everything they are told.

    How does anyone know that Morison wants him.?

    Im sure there are a few options we are looking at. We got the Doyle deal done.

    Now we already have fans with outrage blaming Tan for not backing Morison over this guy.

    I guarantee if we paid the money the same fans would be blaming the transfer committee.

    I really hope we dont splash any money on this player.
