Just confirmed on Cardiff Twitter
Sorry, but that is nonsense. His hold up play can be fantastic at times but he is woeful at attacking the ball, particularly in the air. You would expect that someone with his stature would have a field day with the likes of Eliasson on the field. We have peppered the box with crosses on countless occasions but Diedhou has never displayed the intelligence to anticipate where the balls are headed. He waits for the ball to come to him, never the other way round. It's easy to defend against a static attacker and is largely why, in my opinion, he will never produce a 20 goal season at this level. You may say that it isn't his role to score 20 goals a season and that's fair enough, he does bring other qualities to the team. The truth is though that we cannot afford the luxury of a lone striker without a goal-threat when our midfielder's goal contribution can be described as sporadic at best. If we insist on playing the same system we need a striker that is mobile and can attack our deep crosses.
