Albion talking point: What now for Conway?

The Argus: Craig Conway fires home (photo Simon Dack) Craig Conway fires home (photo Simon Dack)

Craig Conway signed off at The Amex in real style today.

He scored a goal, had a hand in winning a penalty and was always a threat to the Leicester defence.

But Kazenga LuaLua is also back in the thick of it after recovering from a knee injury.

So what would you like to see happen to Conway, whose loan from Cardiff expired after the game at Middlesbrough next Saturday?

Should Albion try to sign him in January?

Or do they have sufficient options out wide?

And what have you made of his time with the Seagulls?

We’d love to know your thoughts.

Sign him up....

Craig has been a big asset for us and gets better every game. His crossing ability is second to none, he drives forward for 90 minutes, his attitude and work ethic is spot on and given the injuries that Buckley and Lua Lua seem to pick up, he can only be fantastic competition to the others while offering something a little different too.

I don't think having 3 top line wingers competing for starting slots can ever be classified a bad thing.

Yes sign Craig up ASAP he seems to be getting better and better. Whilst we are signing him I do hope that we will give Rohan Ince a long contract otherwise he could be gone soon for next to nothing. He is becoming immense in the midfield.

Simply not a priority for me. Terrific work ethic but certainly not better than we already have. KLL, Orlandi and March all cover wide left. Not to mention the fact that as soon as Leo is fit all the Barnes luvvees will be looking for a slot for him - and the only option is wide left.

If we have money then surely a truly creative midfielder and a fit cover striker come first. Clearly Lita cannot be fit or we'd have seen more of him.

He may not have the turn off pace that KLL or Buckers possess,
But he is strong on the ball and his final ball is far more consistent than theirs.

We have not seen more of Lita because Barnes has been playing so well.

Exactly! Doesn't matter how easily or how often you beat the full back if your final ball is wild. Conway offers a different dimension, maybe not so spectacular, but more certain. We'd be d not to ensure his services in Jan.

Good point Willie, as good as Will and Kaz are they are a bit woosy and injury prone, Conway is a solid tough player, and I also like the fact that if he gets fouled he doesn't writhe around on the grass as if he's been shot, just gets up and gets on with it. Would be a good addition to the squad.

Very good player with great work ethic. Blends in well with our more artistic players. Took a little while to settle in but now he has we'd be stupid not to sign him permanently. Would provide much needed competition for places which keeps players on their toes.
Could we extend his loan until the transfer window opens? And then sign him up. Would be very surprised if this is not a done deal already if it were possible. Seems a shame to lose him for a few weeks and then sign him up in January. I think Leo would score loads from his crosses. Fingers crossed. UTA

As good as Conway is I can't see us signing him permanently yet, extend the loan deal yes as you only have to pay his wages, we've got KLL back from his op and he will be first choice! See how the season goes and if we don't make the prem sign him in the summer.

Extend Conways loan, sign Ince on a 5 yr deal and as for Lopez, I think he is a good player but has been pretty awful up to yesterday, 1 good match doesn't change opinions much but a few good games back to back does so let's see what happens next couple of games.

I would sign Conway, he is showing his class and there is probably more to come. If we do sign him I guess it would mean that Lua Lua would become third choice, which in turn could mean that we let him go at the end of the season. I have always felt that Kaz is an impact sub and I doubt I will change my mind so for next season, I would prefer Conway to Kaz.
For the remainder of this season we would do well to renew the loan deal.

Vegas, if LuaLua can play games back to back like he did before his op we could struggle to keep him as he was unstoppable, and like Ulloa, Bridcutt and Ince he will be in demand, Conway on loan to keep LuaLua honest yes, but LuaLua puts fear into defenders and opens the door for others so will get the start.

Yeah I get your point but we just differ on the importance of starting Lua Lua. I tend to lean toward what Jockinthenoo posted as over a 90 minute match I think Conway will give us more. Mine is just an opinion and we all have our preferred players.
If we did sign Conway then yes it would be hard to keep Kaz, others will want him and he might not get much playing time with us, I can live with that.

As a neutral could I just say that if they were playing for Palace, I would pick Conway over Lua Lua every time. Conway is far more consistent and an excellent crosser of the ball. Lua Lua is exciting in bursts, can beat people easily, but then his crossing can be simply appalling. If anybody knows OG personally could you pass this tip on. He's refusing to answer my calls at the moment. Perhaps it was the heavy breathing.

Just a thought that you might have an opinion on.

When Ulloa comes back, and thinking that Bridcutt and Ince will start, we will probably line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Barnes being one of the three. Would not that line up be better served with Conway playing, given that he can certainly deliver a good cross, I would suggest that his crosses are better than those of Kaz.

A good point Vegas, when Ulloa returns up front we will take on a different look completely, Conway is a better crosser of the ball but can be contained whereas LuaLua will beat defenders more often but not so many crosses on target, maybe start Conway and if he struggles against defender swap for LuaLua, could LuaLua play on the right and cross with his good foot? just another thought if Buckley was injured, either way, if we are discussing these sort of problems/selections rather than injuries means we are coming good.
Do you think Barnes will be rested when Ulloa returns? he has run his guts out, or do we drop someone from midfield to accommodate Barnes, yet another nice problem for OG. It's all positive for me who ever gets the nod.

However, you can never prevent players from wanting to move on. Hopefully we can hang on to our best players but if we do lose a couple of players in Jan then I would like to see that money re-invested in the squad. If we do end up cashing in on Bridcutt and Ulloa I would like to see us re-invest in perhaps Jordan Rhodes of Blackburn (rumour has it that Blackburn are in dire financial state) or Ross MaCormack of Leeds. Strikers cost money, so while we may be able to pick up a midfielder to replace Bridcutt on the cheap, we would need to splash the cash if we were to replace Ulloa. PS. I would also like to see competitors have to pay through the nose if they are going to pinch our best players.

For the remainder of this season we would do well to renew the loan deal.
Vegas, if LuaLua can play games back to back like he did before his op we could struggle to keep him as he was unstoppable, and like Ulloa, Bridcutt and Ince he will be in demand, Conway on loan to keep LuaLua honest yes, but LuaLua puts fear into defenders and opens the door for others so will get the start.
Just a thought that you might have an opinion on.

When Ulloa comes back, and thinking that Bridcutt and Ince will start, we will probably line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Barnes being one of the three. Would not that line up be better served with Conway playing, given that he can certainly deliver a good cross, I would suggest that his crosses are better than those of Kaz.
A good point Vegas, when Ulloa returns up front we will take on a different look completely, Conway is a better crosser of the ball but can be contained whereas LuaLua will beat defenders more often but not so many crosses on target, maybe start Conway and if he struggles against defender swap for LuaLua, could LuaLua play on the right and cross with his good foot? just another thought if Buckley was injured, either way, if we are discussing these sort of problems/selections rather than injuries means we are coming good.
Do you think Barnes will be rested when Ulloa returns? he has run his guts out, or do we drop someone from midfield to accommodate Barnes, yet another nice problem for OG. It's all positive for me who ever gets the nod.

I would guess that Ulloa will be a sub for Barnes until he is both match fit and match sharp. Once Ulloa is fully ready I think Barnes keeps his place on the sheet and will play behind Ulloa.
If we play both Ulloa and Barnes, and if we also start both Ince and Bridders, we are really reducing our options in midfield. I would have to think that we want one specialist wide player and a play maker. Barnes, Buckley and David/Crofts, as the 3 in a 4-2-3-1 formation?
It might be that one of those pairings has to go, probably the front pair.

Ceiling, what ceiling :-))
You are all forgetting Orlandi who has provided a string of accurate crosses for Ulloa from the left wing, and is also our most creative left-sided midfielder player - and who has also weighed in with some excellent goals.

Personally, i think the long term future lies with the quality players like Ulloa, Bridcutt, Ince, Orlandi, Lua Lua and Buckley. I would now also include Bruno who's ball control, passing, movement and anticipation against Leicester made him my MOM - with Ince/ Bridcutt/El-Abd/Brez
ovan/Lopez close behind.

With regard to the match, Leicester played it like a cup tie after their mid-week defeat. They have some of the best attacking players in the division and I don't think many Championship sides could have lived with them in- let alone beat them 3-1, so it was a fantastic TEAM performance by the Albion. It probably ranks as the best game I have seen since we beat Charlton 7-0 about 25 years ago when Jimmy Case turned on the class, and we were 5-0 up by half-time to a team who were top of this division at the time.

Congratulations to the whole team for a magnificent display.

If all players were fit then I think Conway would be a great bench player but not a first choice. Given the number of injuries worth keeping if the price is right. Fantastic to see David back to his best. Fantastic vision for both goals. Delighted again for Barnes but please find another penalty taker...not very convincing.

SIGN HIM!!!

He was the only one who played with passion and a bit of verve against Barnsley. No one else turned up. It was a matter of time before he slotted in a goal.

If we don't have the fee then, at least, extend the loan deal. It's a no brainer really. Kaz and Bucka ain't gonna stay fit as we all know well. He's a necessary asset.
