Is Etuhu The New Eddie Johnson For Cardiff ?

Is Etuhu The New Eddie Johnson For Cardiff ?

Cardiff City attacker Kelvin Etuhu has made far from the impression he would have hoped for after a disappointing loan season with the Bluebirds where injury, and form of other players have kept him as a fringe player and limited his contribution to the club.

Both Etuhu and Johnson were exciting prospects, welcomed by the fans and came from established Premiership clubs. Both are tall, yet by no means dominant in the air and neither will have been satisfied by their season in South Wales. Last season's chants of Eddie, Eddie have been replaced by Etuuuuuhuuuu but to similar effect.

Etuhu is yet to score and goes from looking a dangerous and exciting prospect to a frustrating and disappointing entity in a second. His blistering pace and powerful runs are often followed by poor control, a wayward pass or a miscued cross ballooned over the bar.

Just like last season, you sense the entire crowd is willing him to succeed and score but it just isnt happening. He has offered more since operating in his preferred wide midfield role but remains the most likely alternative if (God forbid) Jay Bothroyd was injured.

Etuhu will start against Derby County on Sunday, and will look to impress. However, barring an absolute miracle it will be Whittingham and Burke who are first choices for the wide positions and Etuhu will look-on from the now familiar position on the bench.
