Carl Curtis : Federico Macheda ?

‘ Federico Macheda ‘
Macheda was signed as a free transfer one year ago and was a player that I was excited about when Ole brought him in, even though he hadn’t reached his potential, a reason why he was signing for us, he is still young and under a manager he knew from Man Utd, I was hopeful that it may just click.The six foot Italian had ended the previous season in the Championship with Birmingham in good goal scoring form.

‘ Kiko ‘ had 13 starts in the league for us last season and made another 8 appearances as a sub and managed to score 6 goals.

He did score another 2 goals for the club in the Capital One cup.

I was left disappointed by Macheda’s contribution last season, probably after expecting more from him.

Fans will argue that Kenwyne Jones is a lazy player but I honestly feel that Jones offers more to the team than Macheda, defensively, as a foil for other players and most of all as a goal scorer.

At just 23 yrs old, I wouldn’t be disappointed or surprised if the club kept him for the forthcoming season but I would hope to see considerably more from Macheda.

Do you think he is worth keeping and persevering with ?

Or are you happy with Macheda anyway ?
