Quincy Drops Off Cardiff City Radar

Quincy Drops Off Cardiff City Radar

Cardiff City moved in January to sign Quincy Owusu-Abeyie on loan from Spartak Moscow with a view to a permanent move at the end of the season. However, the Ghana forward has barely featured for the Bluebirds and must be frustrated with his lack of opportunities.


Quincy joined us part way through a trial with Tottenham Hotspur following the end of his spell with Birmingham City where he impressed. Manager Dave Jones said that Quincy had made 'sacrifices' to join us and was impressed by his desire and commitment.


Cardiff City fans were obviously pleased with his capture and with Chopra, McCormack and Bothroyd in pole position to play up-front it seemed likely Quincy would take up a left-wing role as he had done previously to good effect.


That has not materialised and Quincy has yet to start a game for the Bluebirds. He played the majority of the match against Norwich City following an injury to Darcy Blake. However, he was largely ineffective although the entire team struggled for rhythm and he had little possession as we lost 2-0.


A half against Southampton in another away defeat gave Quincy a chance to shine. He had a few moments but was again starved of possession.


During the final 15 minutes of a 3-1 victory against Barnsley, Quincy did get a chance to shine with the Tykes a man down. Quincy found space, looked comfortable in possession and showed a few tricks as he caused problems for Simon Davey's side. Two curling efforts were well saved and Quincy showed a good attacking threat on our left.


Since then, Quincy has made no appearances and did not even make the bench for the 2-2 draw against Swansea City. Paul Parry currently plays on the left, with Whittingham on the bench. Joe Ledley is another option on the left while Chris Burke is also unlucky not to feature.


Many Cardiff City fans expected Quincy to play a big part in our run-in and cause problems for opposition defenders. There is growing support for the former Arsenal man to get a chance ahead of Parry and Whittingham with neither wideman playing at the best of their form. With a view to a permanent move, Quincy is running out of time to impress and win a contract for next year.

A shame really, he's promising but can't help feeling the wages would be better spent on a central midfield

I'd start him against Derby, Parry needs a rest. Rae should also be recalled
