He's an "attack minded midfielder" who apparently can be relied upon to score once in every twelve games that he plays.

Can someone tell me what we're doing with this dross?
He’s been one of our better performers this season. His main issues in the past (from what I can gather) have been maintaining consistent form and avoiding injury.

He may have been one of our better performers, but he's part of an attack that have scored 7 goals in 10 games; 3 coming in 1 game.

"Better" is relative.

His scoring record for a professional "attack minded midfielder" is atrocious.
Christ we've had goalkeepers that have come close to his record.

Some need to wake up to the fact that we've imported a load of crap.
No one is going to get a tune out of this bunch.

When we're facing relegation at the backend of the season, this board will be a seething mass of discontent.

7 starts

8 shots
6 on target
2 goals
2 assists

Joint top scorer (speaks volumes)

We’ve only scored 7 goals, O’Dowda’s been directly involved in half of them.

I see you're as well informed about football as you are about everything else then :hehe:

Since 2013 he's made 254 first team appearances and scored 22 goals.

22 goals in 10 years

1 goal every 12 games.

I see what you're saying. He should be playing centre forward for us

He’s started 7 games for us you flabby old tit.

During which he’s done very well - arguably better than any other member of the squad.

As a Cardiff fan, we can only judge him on what we’ve seen. Unless of course you’ve studied him over the years and come to the conclusion that he’s shit. Which you haven’t.

At least now we know why you rarely post anything football related.

OK. Firstly, a bit of pedantry from me: your stats are incorrect (Callum O'Dowda - Detailed stats - https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/callum-odowda/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/255679). You were using Wikipedia I suppose, which you'd ridicule the rest of us for. And that's 9 years, not 10. And you're ignoring his assists (30) in that time. So he has a goal involvement every 5 games, not so bad when you consider that he's played roughly half his games in less attack-minded positions.

That aside, he's been excellent for us since joining, and to say that we've "imported a load of crap" who nobody's going to "get a tune out of" is nonsense. Though you probably know that, and were just trying to get a reaction. We're 10 games in. Some have shown their worth already, others may not have dazzled but have been better than who they've replaced and the remainder haven't really played.

Are you alright?

12 of those 22 goals were at League 2 level.

10 goals in 7 seasons in the Championship.

322 Championship games?

Where are you getting 322 Championship games from, you mentalist?
At 8pm you said he'd only played 254 first team games in total.
Even if they were all Championship games, are you suggesting he's crammed in another 68 games since tea time?

:hehe:
