Lassogga/Pundits Views

Post by 1964white » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:49 am

In a recent interview, Lasogga got asked to grade his move to Leeds Utd 1-6 (one being the best, and 6 being the worst)

This is what he said: “I would give a 2. We had a couple of defeats in the last matches and have ended up 10th, seven points back off play-off place, 6th. We can catch up in the 16 remaining games with the new coach. In the summer I have long wondered if the step to Leeds is the right one. Now I am convinced that in my situation at the HSV in the summer I got everything right.”

Sky Sports pundits Ian Wright, Dennis Wise and Liam Rosenior have offered their opinions on Heckingbottoms ER appointment

Dennis Wise: I find it strange in those circumstances
"I can understand the attraction, Leeds United Football Club is a wonderful football club, a big club that needs to go places, I just can't understand what he's done.

"In the way that he's done it to sign on the Friday and disappear and three or four days later, I find that very, very strange in those circumstances.

"I think to myself did he know beforehand?

"Sometimes clubs come along and they look at managers knowing that they are maybe getting rid of the other one and it happens in the world of football."


Liam Rosenior: Stability is needed at Leeds
"You don't want to point fingers but I think Riyad Mahrez should get the number off Paul Heckingbottom's agent!

"Sometimes these things come up and it's hard, you talk about loyalty in football with Mahrez and you have personal ambitions that you want to fulfil and maybe Paul Heckingbottom wants to manage the biggest club possible in his career at this time and Leeds is a huge football club.

"Huge football club with huge potential, as a manager there in terms of your timespan that you've got to work with a team, they need to have some stability at that football club if they want to get back to where they probably believe they should be.

"In the size of the club they should be a Premier League side, there needs to be some stability at that football club and if he gets that time in order to implement his processes, then he has a good chance of success there."

Ian Wright: He's putting himself on the line
"You say that but you've got Leeds and the way Leeds are currently, they are trigger happy.

"For him to leave Barnsley, which obviously they love him and he done great for them like we are just hearing, to go to a place that is so volatile in the way that they sack managers...

"He's given up a lot in respects of his love for Barnsley and what the Barnsley fans will think of him.

"I'm not sure what they do think of him right now.

"To go to Leeds, a place where it is pretty unstable itself in the way that they treat managers, I think he's taking a big chance there and we all know it's a massive club, I suppose it's worth trying to take the chance but I think he's put himself on the line."

Thoughts ?

He's certainly put himself 'On the Line' but as long as he doesn't get any premature negativity about himself we may have a chance of a good result.

Sounds like outsiders with no clue regarding LUFC have come up with some uniformed bullshit to justify their positions as pundits...

As much as dislike him, and yes a lot has changed since he worked for us but we can hardly say Dennis Wise knows nothing about LUFC ?

What have the pundits said that is incorrect?

The only thing I'd say to Ian Wright, is no matter how much Barnsley supposedly love him, I think there is a great chance he would have been sacked at the end of the season (at the latest) given their results.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

He is basically saying he should get the same agent as PH. He signed a new deal days before we triggered and paid a large by out clause in he contact. Suggesting Mahrez wants out at Leicester this agent could have worked some magic like PH agent in regards to get Barnsley a pay out and the man has the right to move. Currently Mahrez is being frozen out at Leicester and so he should, he signed a contract and just because a club werent willing to trigger the multi million buyout fee doesnt mean he gets to leave. You signed a contract, stick to it. Greed!
