I'm a bit torn on Malonga coming back. He's a class player in this league in terms of his touch and guile. And he obviously had a healthy goal return. But I found myself still wanting more from him. His work rate as a sole striker was sometimes lacking IMO and I thought he was often wasteful in front of goal. I wonder what kind of wages he was on. My thought was he must have been one of the higher earners on the team.
Malonga is the antithesis of Brown. Brown has all the speed and size in the world, but lacks a lot of finesse and finish. Malonga however does not expend energy to create a play so much as he gets to the right spot and finished up things nicely. Not only does Malonga have a nice touch, but he also has a hammer of a strike.

If you could combine both players strengths, they would be a big shot in Europe. I think in the CPL we will never find a complete player.

Even a guy like Borges could use some size, and some experience. My guess is that when he has the latter he will be gone from this league.

Very true. I just found Malonga's finishing ability underwhelming. I've wondered what another striker in the league like Telfer or Garcia or even Ongaro could do in a team like Cavalry which created so many chances. Still, I'd be pretty happy if we got both Brown and Malonga back. Not many teams in the league had that kind of depth at striker.
