LuaLua stakes claim for a recall

Daily Echo: Kazenga LuaLua featured for the development team yesterday Kazenga LuaLua featured for the development team yesterday

Kazenga LuaLua is sweating on a recall to the first team squad in front of the TV cameras against Leeds United after an outing for the development team.

The winger played for three-quarters of yesterday’s 0-0 draw against Charlton at The Valley.

LuaLua travelled to Blackpool but did not make the bench for Saturday’s 1-1 stalemate at Bloomfield Road.

The former Newcastle flyer could return to contention on Friday night for the Sky televised visit by Leeds to The Amex, where he has made the majority of his appearances.

Inigo Calderon and Matt Sparrow also featured as over-aged players for the development team in front of manager Gus Poyet.

LuaLua, Calderon and Toby Agdestein were all denied by keeper David Button in the first half. Charlton, managed by former Albion favourite Nathan Jones, almost snatched victory in the closing stages when Callum Harriott’s 20-yard curler struck a post.

Albion: East, Sampayo, McGiveron, Calderon, Dunk, Sparrow, March, Gateway, LuaLua (Goodwin, 64), Barker, Agdestein (Rodgers, 64). Unused subs: Smith, Richards, Jones, Akubuine.

Maybe we have seen the best of Kaz....Doesnt seem to have it anymore, not sure whether it follows the surgery for the removal of the plate in his leg, but recent performances especially Derby away were pretty dire.....seems to have lost some pace and trickery, and only effective when he comes on late

Like all players (and perhaps more than some) Kazenga thrives on confidence. It cant be easy to develop confidence when you're in and out of the side, on and off the bench, meaning every minute you're on the pitch you're under pressure to perform. In Kaz's case I think this sometimes leads to him trying too hard, like going for the spectacular shot when the pass may be the better option. I don't think we've seen the best of him, we just don't see enough of him and I think he deserves a run in the side (although I wouldn't drop Buckley to make way). The confidence thing was very evident at Blackpool - we sat back and let them come at us: didn't have the confidence in our own abilities going forward. I hope we properly go for it gainst Leeds on Friday and produce the sort of CMS-led performance we delivered in the second half of the same fixture last season (without the stupid late goal against).

As Leeds are engaged in what looks likes on paper, a very competitive match against Soton tonight, presumably that means, in these modern times, that the Leeds team will be 'tired' for their trip and encounter here just three days later. We really must deliver something on Friday night, whoever the manager selects.

I quite agree my friend, spot on..

Id really like to see us back to basics Friday evening with a 4-4-2 formation and an attacking intent from the start.
It wont happen but id love to see the following line up start against Leeds.
Your opinions as always are always welcome.

Kuz
Bruno, Greer, El abd, Bridge
Buckley, Bridcutt, Crofts, Orlandi
Cms, Toby.

Subs, Barnes, Lualua, Dunk, Calderon, Ank, Lopez and Dobbie.

Id add that although Dobbie has struggled thus far i do believe that he will come good for us given a formation that suits him and some confidence. Blackpool took us apart on Saturday and they were extremely keen to take him back, he must have something...

He is under pressure with the performances of Noone at Cardiff. His final ball was not that great but he had spark and threat. If he had the final ball as well he would have been in the Premier league. Thats why we had him. Why was he not coached to learn how to deliver the final ball at Brighton !!!

So whos gunna start slag off Barnes Tuesday?

Kaz is a good player, but again doesnt get enough starts. We have far too many midfielders. I understand that Gus like competition, but unless your team is stretched, playing in Europe as well as in this country, then team B don't enough of a chance to shine. Its almost like the players would be praying for a colleague to get an injury

Shocking when you think we have two true strikers CMS and Hoskins. Toby and Dickenson just in case.

Anyways, bring on three points Friday!

In our own heads we are all great managers, far better than Gus or Sir Alex so just like many of you I will pick my team for friday.

Front two CMS and Barker with Lualua in the hole behind them.
Back five picks it's self.
Croft, Orlandi and Lopez.

A dangerous line up but one that should produce goals and goals have been demanded.

Both CMS and Lua Lua have the pace to get back and help if and when needed.

At this stage in our season long evolution I’d settle for 4 points from the next 2 games which will keep us in touch with the top 6. At 21 Kaz also has the potential to evolve in to something very special. But win against Leeds would be awesome.

He's being played out of position, but Barnes IS a striker, too....

And in reply to your previous post, it's not going to be to start slagging birthday boy Barnes off today, even if Tommy(aged)11 does think that by not doing so doesn't make me a 'proper' fan...

Wow doom and gloom! You couple be a double act. The guy is 21. Give him a break. We should ask him to be the surprise package and rely on the work horses in the central positions. LuaLua will come good and so will our season. Every team goes through a blip, look at Southampton last season between December and January, they couldn't score to save their lives and where are they now?

Get the win on Friday, smash Peterborough and we will be flying again

Look for positives folks! Great stadium, great Harverys, great pies and great staffing set up. Can we now get back to being great fans please

As I mentioned in another thread, I think it's a bit too early to be making those kinds of sweeping statements.

Let's just see where we are when all the new recruits have settled in a bit, and got more time on the pitch...

Since you know so much about Dobbie's ability or the lack there of tell me, just how many minutes has he played since signing?
How many of those minutes was he sharing the park with CMS?
With all the injuries we have had over the last several weeks how much time has he had to find his place within a settled line up?

Some on here are so quick to condemn and they clearly don't look any further than the last result or the next game. Perhaps the same people think that we should have got rid of CMS when he couldn't find the net in the first few games.

I'll second that. I'm sure the team are gutted they have been scoring more and are desperate to start hitting the back of the net. The last thing they need are fair weather fans getting on their high horses. Win the next two and then we can show those blue birds/ dragons a thing or two when we visit them!

Shame about KLL - for now at least. When he first arrived on loan his pace and skill were staggering and a joy to behold, unless you were an opposition full-back, that is!.
The list of 'not-really-doing-it
-at-the- moment' players is quite long, unfortunately for the management team who've invested money and faith in them (not to mention the supporters).
Still, Friday comes and that's as good a day as any to beat not so mighty Leeds. If that can be achieved with a bit of the quality stuff shown earlier this season, so much the better...

After our first 3 games everyone here was on Noone's back ... poor final delivery.. weak shot...many thought it was a good deal when he went to Cardiff. Now all of a sudden it was the worst deal ever! Noone was oustanding at the start of last season and then faded badly. It's very early days with Dobbie, although he has not been impressive thus far.

One thing I know for sure - football supporters are the most fickle bunch. After 2 home victories we will again think we are world beaters.

Every game I go to at the Amex I just think how lucky we are. What a fantastic management team to bring us the stadium, good quality football, beer and pies. Everyone has a right to moan, but some people here do nothing else!

PS who was top scorer last season?

Yep, surely an oversight. If fit, Will's a definate starter for me, just a pity he seems a bit injury prone.
Lua Lua is I think a bit like Noone in as much he remains very much a work in progress. Sometimes when he comes on as a sub, he can destroy the opposition and is a joy to watch ie another one of those bums off seats type of player.Had he been able to show some consistency of performance, I doubt Newcastle would ever have got rid.

Hows that for finishing positively?..UTA

Notice how many fans have not included Barnes?

Imho only position he can play is Striker facing the goal due to his first touch which lets him own repeatedly

Gus has far greater knowledge than me and hios team seecton have been resticted due to injuries ossible team could be

Kusack

Bruno Geer Hammond Bridge

Buckley Croft/David Bridcup Vincenti/Orlandi

CMS Hoskins

Cardiff will go up because they have signed Noone, we will end up nowhere. We've now got Dobbie who is nowhere near as good as Nooney....what a bad bit of business!!!
Funny, you sound just like someone else who likes all capitals for his/her name...

Both CMS and Lua Lua have the pace to get back and help if and when needed. .
No Buckley???? Oversight, or have you never actually watched the Albion this season?
Not an indictment of any player just something new, lets face it, we have tried nearly everything else.
