Wolves Fan's View On Cardiff City Recruit Bothroyd

Cardiff City last night wrapped up the signing of Jay Bothroyd from Wolverhampton Wanderers for around 300k. We headed over to Vital Wolves for a fans view on our latest acquisition:



Your thoughts on Bothroyd leaving?

Good luck to the lad. No hard feelings or anything. He COULD have done better. Scored some great goals, but not enough of them.



Can he do a good job for Cardiff City?

Definitely. DJ has a history of getting the best out of players, and he'll have to do that to make Jay's time at Cardiff a happy one.



He's big - but is he a typical target man like our other targets?

I wouldnt call him a typical target man, there's a lot more to his game than that. Calling him a target man does him a real injustice. Most fans at Wolves will tell you he was the most naturally gifted at the club in his time.



Any particular strengths? Ability, Ability, Ability.


And weaknesses? Work rate, and doesnt track back.


Is 300k a fair price?

Bargain.




Many thanks to Stuart Smith for his views. It does seem like we have a talented player on our hands. He could be a great signing, or have very little impact at all. Most Cardiff fans seem content with this addition, but many feel we also need another - more proven goalscorer to do the business week in, week out.

Some guy called Koumas had loads of ability but a poor record and not the best temperament - think he did ok....

different kettle of fish. The best word to describe Jay is infuriating. He has immense, immense talent, but at his age, you have to ask why he has had so mnay clubs and never fulfilled his potential. I spoke to Mcik McCarthy about him toward the end of the season before last, and he couldn't speak highly enough of him, but I will warn you, he also added that he doesnt track back to help the defence, and you just have to accept thats the way he is. You should see a couple of screamimng goals from him at least anyway , and like i said above, for 300k you have got a real bargain. Mind you , we got him for free ;)
