    Cab for Kaba !!!

    Would you take him back?

    He was brilliant for us but has failed miserably at Las Palmas ?

    Could go out on loan, or be sold.

    He was far from brilliant. He hit a purple patch in front of goal and most of those he scored were important, but he rarely looked up to much and his control was often shocking.

    He couldn't play. His upper body (Touch) was good though, play it into his feet and god help us. The club should be commended for not being fooled (or maybe Kaba received a better offer) Under Warnock we'd have shifted 4 million on him with a three year deal.

    Let's just leave him in our Purple Patch Hall Of Fame - alongside Ken Zohore!

    Good question and a real poser. Kaba scored a decent strike rate for us. A good finisher, a physical threat, and good in the air - so better than the junk we have now such as Meite who is frankly terrible, and about as much use as a cup of cold piss.

    The fact that we have lost the Karlan means some loan wages taken off there. Offload the awful Meite and take Kaba on loan and I think that should be financially viable, and he will bag a few

    Some players suit certain clubs and styles, and perhaps in a Spanish league not so much, where aerial prowess isnít serviced as much. Although he was here under Sabri, the fact we are a set piece team means I think he will bag goals. Get one or two fast wingers to complement quality deliveries from Tanner and O Dowda and I think he would bag even a few more.

    So a yes from me if we cannot do better. But assuming money is there I would prefer Kieffer Moore and Karlan Grant here as two choices of 9s. Grant and Moore, with Isaac Davies as back up would be my preferred choices.

    Agree mostly, but he knew where the net was, and kept us up?

    I liked him, but don't want him back personally either.

    Of course though, it depends who we do get, can we get better?

    Yes, at no time was he brilliant, not even close to it. He seemed good around the goalmouth, always managing to get an important touch.

    is he better than what we currently have ? ? YES

    I thought he did well for us, certainly knew where the goal was and wasnt afraid to get stuck in

    “tour de force”? A tad over the top maybe.

    Re: Cab for Kaba !!!

    Itís a poorly-researched piece as usual from Walesonline. They claim Kaba scored 3 goals in 28 appearances for Las Palmas. In fact, it was 2 goals in 20 appearances, and one of those goals came in a cup game against a fourth-tier side.

    Re: Cab for Kaba !!!

    He was crap.

    Iíd even rather Callum Paterson back before him

    Yes he put the ball in the back of the net, so would many others with the chances he had

    Re: Cab for Kaba !!!

    His GPG ratio was good. For us. Not so great everywhere else. Especially Las Palmas. I would hope we could and should do better.

    Kaba?

    He struggled to hold up the ball for the midfield. Went wandering on occasions and didnít press when it was obviously the game plan.

    He isnít a good player.

    Sorry,Kaba is not for us.

    Not for me.

    Re: Cab for Kaba !!!

    May not have been the best footballer since sliced whatever but he came in and did a job and for that he did it in the main so thanks for that - beggars and all that can't be choosers

    There's a difference between not being a good player, and being crap. He scored goals - crap players dont.

    He was a great loan and did just what we needed him to do - scoring goals and bringing a big personality to the squad. For that we should all appreciate his time in a Cardiff shirt.

    But that doesn't mean we should ignore his weaknesses or his record for other teams. I thank him and wish him well, but would not be too happy to see him back as our No 9 for a full season. I can't see him being as successful a second time.

    I can give you a number of players that scored goals but were still crap.

    None of last seasons, cos none of them could score goals, but were crap.

    If it's a straight choice I would guess a crap striker that can score goals is better than a crap striker that can't.

    Re: Cab for Kaba !!!

    If we had him all last season we definitely would have finished higher up the league so unless keifer is coming then itís a yes from me.

    Re: Cab for Kaba !!!

    I thought he was offloaded on loan to us from Mitdjyland because of his attitude problem. Now not wanted by Las Palmas

    Re: Cab for Kaba !!!

    Sheffield Wednesday after him apparently, if they can't get another of our loan strikers, Ike Ugbo, back again.

    he would improve us
