Bristol City Cast Eye Over Quincy and Pe

  • Ive just learnt from Bristol Citys official website, that the Robinss coaching team have Vincent Pericard and Quincy Owusu-Abeyie on trial at the club. Vincent PericardPericard is a former Juventus and Stoke player, but I have little idea how good of a player he is overall. The name is one which is hard to forget, so Im gue sing that is why Ive heard of him! He is only 26, so could have a fair few years in him, and could be a good replacement for Adebola upfront.Quincy is someone I am more familiar with, however. When at Arsenal he was touted as a star of the future. However, having moved to Spartak Moscow and returned to England for loan spells with Cardiff and Birmingham, he has since failed to reach his apparent potential. Nonethele s, he looked a very solid player in his outings for the teams in blue, and could be a useful addition if City judge him to be worth the small fee they would have to pay Moscow for his services. And he is only 23 still, which means he still has time to improve as a player if he can finally settle at a club. Quincy Owusu-AbeyieHe can play up front or as a winger, which could add some much-needed versatility in the final third of the pitch. However, the game against Cardiff yesterday showed that pace up front doesnt always mean succe s, as Maynard and Haynes were starved of good service for much of the match. But , ever the optimist, I suppose signing both Pericard and Quincy could make the City frontline more dynamic. However, I question how good Pericard is if Stoke has released him.I gue s we will all find out in the coming days if they will be putting on the red and white shirt for real during the season. More here as it breaks.
