Many will be happy to hear about the signing of Adam Le Fondre- a great capture in my opinion. He should be ready to go next week, international clearance pending. He`s struggled to adapt to life at Cardiff, notching a feeble 3 goals so far this season. However, he returns to the North West, where he has enjoyed much past success and under Neil Lennon could well prove to be an inspired addition to our squad.
This will also relieve fans, worried about striking options. Injuries to Craig Davies, Max Clayton, Emile Heskey and Zach Clough have caused distress, and Le Fondre is likely to ease the burden on Eidur Gudjohnsen (who I think needs a rest after failing to impress against Liverpool). Le Fondre (or ALF, as I may refer to him in the future) spoke thusly upon joining the best club in the world:
He`s a natural striker- quite similar to Joe Mason, although he is more experienced and has a proven record at the highest level. I think this signing is somewhat of a coup for Bolton Wanderers, who looked like they could only attract hidden gems from abroad or League 1 rejects with their limited finances.
The former Reading striker, who netted a hat trick in their 7-1 thrashing over the Trotters joins up with fellow Cardiff City loanee Kevin McNaughton and replaces the injured Joe Mason who returned to Wales.
I am excited to hear about what manager Neil Lennon says about Le Fondre, and I expect to see him utilise his template for complimenting players- they usually follow along these lines ‘I tried to sign him at Celtic`, ‘He`s probably the best in the division` or ‘I like his style`.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?
