This transfer still makes more sense than the Rocchi one tbh...
Now I know why you wear that "most optimistic member" button.
I thibk its all about his fitness. If he is on a level, where he can play after a week of training with the team, than he might play a role in a handfull of games. If its real, he needs until may, to get fit, he is useless.
Other thing is,I haven't see him play for a while. But the type of player could be usefull. Cassano playing the target on a winggame , like in some situations at the end of cluj, doesn't make more sence, than a limited Carew. So if he is able to come on in the last 30 Miutes, give Palacio some recovery time, and play his part, its a good decision.
The part I expect him to do is make some space, target of wingers, lenghten or layup some balls with headers.
And playing Cassano and Alvarez as sidemen, they might place some ball on his forehead, get some scoringpoints.
So for me, the fitness is decisive. Nobody will go buy his shirt, but at this point, there is no other player to give us some depth in CA. Neither in primavera, nore other Player without contract. The mistakes were made before, so just a trie to give it a little fix.
