Does Caicedo smack of desperation?
So the latest rumour is linking us with a season long loan for Man City's Ecuador flop, Caicedo. I can see the sense of bringing in another forward but is this a case of signing somebody just because he is available for nothing?
Like Cole and Piquionne, Caicedo seems to suffer from a rather debilitating problem for a forward, he doesn't score goals! 27 appearances for Unreal City have yielded just 4 goals, whilst 20 appearances on loan at Sporting and Malaga saw him add only 4 more to his meagre total of career goals - which stands to date at just 21 club goals and 3 international goals from 20 caps.
Then there is the added problem that he is yet another foreign player and that our squad roster is already full. True Kovac is on his way but we are now on the absolute limit. You also have to wonder what we are planning to do with McCarthy. Boil him down for a vat of glue perhaps?
This deal doesn't set my pulses racing. Caicedo is a wonder kid, you wonder why Unreal City spent £5 million on him!
