Poyet waits Ulloa clearance

Leonardo Ulloa warms up at Birmingham

Leonardo Ulloa warms up at Birmingham

First published in Sport by

Gus Poyet hopes to have new signing Leonard Ulloa available for Tuesday’s trip to Blackburn.

The Argentinean striker was not able to feature at Birmingham today as international clearance was not received in time.

Poyet said: “It's just paperwork. You never know why it goes so slow but it's not in my hands.”

So what are the chances of him being available for Tuesday? Poyet added: “I thought in January things were done quicker at the FA. Apparently not.

“It's not frutsrating, they have got everything and everything is fine and we need to finish it so do the paperwork.”

How many press conferences have there been since midday yesterday, when the question could have been asked? Also it seems BHA were deliberately withholding the info, presumably to not give too much away to Birmingham.

He needs players around him to succeed - not the lone ranger role that CMS has had to endure for so long. Even the great Barcelona usually have several players around the box where they play intricate little passes to each other to create goals for Messi and Villa.

Gus only goes for it (usually far too late)when we need a goal/s to equalise or to try and win. Today we didn't go for it - until they scored their equaliser with 2 mins of extra time left. The forward-thinking urgency which suddenly erupted all but got us the winner. Just goes to show that we could/should have won this game 4-1 if we had shown that urgency when 2-1 ahead.

You could ask the question all you want mate, but the club would not release that information prior to the team sheet release, which is 1 hour before the game. Its called keeping your opponent guessing.

A lot could hinge on how Ulloa and Vicente strike up an understanding. If they come in and combine well with the team it has the potential to put us in the premier league. A good win on Tuesday will be acceptable before the Arsenal game and some more interesting team selections coming up with the options we have now I think.

I think that Chris Wood could have been signed before, if Gus had rated him more highly. The fact that we didn't make a strong bid to keep him after his loan spell expired, probably left Wood feeling unwanted. By the time Gus had decided that he did want him, so did half a dozen other clubs. Leicester is closer to the midlands where he has been based for the last few years, and they have a far more attacking emphasis than we do, so it must have been quite easy for Chris to decide that Leicester was a team which would suit his style of play. Just look at the great partnership he has already built with Nugent. They are a formidable striking pair, something that Gus hasn't had for two years now, and never will have as long as he persists with his one striker policy!
It beats me that he has never tried CMS with Will Hoskins.

That is obvious - mate, but it's clear what my point is - but you're choosing to act dumb - if you took the last 10 minutes in isolation, we'd probably have the worst defensive record in the division if not the football league. Get it?

Cannot see Dobbie having much of a future with us--does not seem to feature much--pity as he came with such great expectations and like many I feel he has not been given much of an opportunity to shine.
