George Tucudean

What is the situation with him? Will he return for next season? Can he? Or does he still have visa problems from his last loan.

The main question is, would you have him in our team next season?

I reckon he could actually do a job at that level at least. He showed bits of talent and there's a chance in League One it would be his level.

  • I still think he had "some" potential but needs the right coach. League one might suit him.

    But I suspect we will release him

  • For Christ's sake hope he doesn't play against the spanners, I still have nightmares about that miss.

    I was there and that's harsh, he did well to get free and then was put off by the defender, a far more difficult chance than it looked at first.

    Politely disagree with you @cantersaddick, but you've probably seen more of him than I did. I think Mak is a far more rounded player, just played in a team that couldn't adapt to that and lumped balls forward. I still think Tucudean is worth a pre-season under a new manager. He's one of the transfer who I feel like we brought in, and when he didn't settle straight away, binned off. It might be that he struggled to settle in England, which would be a fault of the recruitment team for not sounding that out beforehand.
  • Not up to this level or the one we're dropping down to. Deluded if you think he is.

    Fair enough. We probably just saw him play in different games. I'm not saying he was complete or fully rounded but I think he had potential to have more to his game than Mak does. I don't see Mak becoming much more than the player he already is. It's all about opinion.

    Yeah, those one on ones are always tricky, particularly when you've just rounded the keeper and only need to slot it in......
  • Roly thought he was good enough. In Roly we trust......
  • It's very interesting because barring that Millwall miss, theres more positives from people on this thread so far than the people who think he's the worst thing going.

    The real poll should be if you had to have one of the following starting the first game of the season, who would you have... Mac or Tucc?

    I'd be happy to see him in League one as I think he may add a bit more to our attack than what we currently have signed up. As next season we're going to have half of the ones who played this season. Only one of Watt, Igor and Lookman are going to stay. And I reckon it will be Igor. So at least Tucc has played with him before and that's when we saw the best of Igor.

    I'd have Mak between the two, and would argue that he and Igor played better together against Rotherham (one of only two games they started together) than Tuc and Igor did. But Igor absolutely will not stay. English football can be incredibly grueling due to scheduling and physicality, and he's really suffered from that. I think very highly of him as a player, but I don't want him to stay, I want him to go somewhere and get fit and not get kicked pillar to post every week.

    Watt might stay only due to injury and lack of suitors. With him, at least you kind of know what you're going to get. He's gonna row pretty regularly, and he's either going to be a very good footballer or not give a toss and not turn up. I still suspect he'll go on loan whenever he's fit if he can't get a move beforehand. I'd wish him the best of luck, because it's clear he doesn't want to be here.

    That's mainly because....he is shit.
    40 odd goals in 200 odd apps knocking around in the Romanian and Belgian leagues.
    I'd rather have Pawell Abbott.
    And for the record, I'm not one of the 'usual boo boys'....but perhaps you weren't talking about me.
  • Yeah definitely score goals just like he did in the championship and just like he did in some pony Romanian league
  • Reminded me a bit of Paul Hayes. Not got the physicality or agility of a Kermorgant, but had decent technique and could bring others into play. Could be a good foil for the right strike partner, like Hayes was with BWP, but not a potential talisman like Kermo was.

    Personally think we binned him out too soon - it's received wisdom that foreign players need time to adapt to the English leagues and he showed enough to begin with to suggest he might eventually do okay. He's probably not the only one that might apply to and is part of a general trend at the club of wanting to bring in unknown potential but then not having the patience to let if adapt and potentially thrive.

    He's probably no better than League 1/lower Championship standard (at best) but that's where we are and he should be better prepared for what the league will throw at him so I'd say he is worth a second chance as part of a deeper, more balanced squad. At some point we have to start to think a bit about building some stability and better the devil you know, this constant churn of players and managers is not helpful, even allowing for the fact that some have to leave because they simply aren't up to it.

    Yes, Paul Hayes is a good comparison, I never understood why he was bombed out so quickly. Bulot was nothing special in his first few months, and only came good in the last few months of the season

    Yep for sure he been excellent in league one!
  • Personally would quite like to see him come back into the squad , especially seeing as we have 1 or 2 senior strikers for next season!
    He definitely had the touch and technique , just lacked goals- when compared to vetokele season just finished he is better!

    Made a bit harder when you get barged over by a defender though.

    I'd have him in League One no problem. To be honest Naby Sarr could be ok at that level too! Going with too many youngsters will be the big mistake as the old pros in that division will know how to stop inexperienced teams. We need to keep a few of our qulaity players too - failing to do so will be a false economy!
