Caleb Ekuban

Postby Cjay » Tue Nov 14, 2017 1:45 pm

Is todays player. (Know he has only played twice but even so).

The 22 year old Ghanaian is a work in progress, a rare thing at Leeds, a TC signing, APOEL were tracking him before TC arrived at Leeds.

One of the criticisms is he is unproven, his best season was in Albania, however he play European football during his time there and did ok.

He is a big lad, 6ft2, strong, hard working (he injured himself chasing down) quick, and quite skillful, he has shown a good touch in his link up play.

Gets forgotten because of the Saiz treble, but Ekuban scored one and assisted 1 that day.

So where do people stand on Ekuban?

I wonder if he could play at CH!

We apparently have an excess of forwards.

He isnt the finished article, dont think he is a battering ram sort of forward, Wood, Madine etc.

More like dare i say it, Mario Balotelli, more about movement, pace, skill etc then brute force (despite both players being big, powerful men).

I like him (big fan of Balotelli as well).

He is something different, he is more mobile then Grot, Lassie etc, as shown with Pandev at Macedonia, Ali can thrive, Saiz and him (Ekuban) linked up well on there debuts, there was an understanding developing.

Second choice striker for me (ahead of Roofe).

If the "links" are anything to go by then we will have a heck of a lot more forwards :roflmao:

I didn't actually see any of the game when he was injured - according to hitc he's due back soon.
