Albion striker insists his best is yet to come

The Argus: Jesse Lingard has failed to score in six games for Albion since arriving on loan from Manchester United Jesse Lingard has failed to score in six games for Albion since arriving on loan from Manchester United

Jesse Lingard has pledged his best is yet to come for Albion.

The Manchester United prospect is not fretting about his goal shortage since joining the Seagulls.

Lingard is six games into his spell on loan from Old Trafford.

The versatile striker has at least nine matches left to help Oscar Garcia’s side into the play-offs.

He told The Argus: “I think I’m picking up every game. I thought I did well the other day against Ipswich.

“I just want to be a threat, try to create chances, get shots off, try and score goals and be effective in the game.”

Lingard, an immediate goal hit on loan to Birmingham earlier in the season, has yet to score for Albion.

He played as an emergency centre-forward in Tuesday’s second defeat in succession at Sheffield Wednesday but is likely to switch back out to the left for Middlesbrough’s visit on Saturday if Leo Ulloa recovers from the illness which ruled him out at Hillsborough.

Lingard said: “I settled in more at Birmingham because I scored four goals straight away but this is more a Premier League club with a Premier League stadium which I’ve got to get used to.

“I like the 4-3-3 system. I’m used to that anyway. I like coming off the left and creating from there. The lads have welcomed me in very well and I’ve settled in nicely now.

“We’ve just got to react now on Saturday, play our normal game and hopefully the goals will come.”

Oh dear, I see the official line is still about getting into the play offs. Yes - but not this season. This is very much a transitional season and being in the top six for a few days does not indicate a credible promotion bid.

Absolutely right. He was utterly ineffective against Wednesday, can only improve.

The lad is fast, makes good runs and tackles back. We need a midfielder able to give him some service and make incisive thru balls.

The way things are going at Old Trafford don't be surprised he gets recalled by David Moyes. That was a tongue in cheek comment but Jesse is clearly a player with great potential and quality. He needs to get his head down and show us what he can do. So, early to bed Friday with a Horlicks. UTA

Being within one result of the play offs in late March does.

By the way, would you like the official line from the club to be "we are aiming to avoid the play-offs and drift carefully down into mid-table obscurity"?

I'm glad Jesse are settling in and hope you can now step on with us. I have a feeling his first goal is definitely coming this weekend. I really hope you can get off the mark in the match because it could propel us on to a successful claim of a play-off place.

By the way, love the comment about Birmingham! Not so sure their fans and staff would take too kindly to that comment but it bigs us up and I love it!

That's not hard is it Jesse "I have to play all the games no matter what because it's in my loan contract" Lingarde.
Take the shots, make the runs but please play someone else in when you have the chance. Man u will not play you if you are not sticking the goals in at chanp level.

Since he scored that 4 goal blast for Birmingham he seems to have been very quiet, maybe the expectation is too great because of that now, maybe he feels he proved himself in that game? Whatever, the ability is in there somewhere, hopefully to be rediscovered this weekend.

My god their are a lot of miserable Fockers on this site.
We are 3 points behind 6th place with a game in hand.

Yes we have has a couple of poor results, but then so have several of the other contenders.
Tuesday night, Derby, Forest, Wigan & Reading all lost.

If we finish 8th this year, it will be our 10th highest position ever.

So why all the doom & Gloom?
Please go and Half fill your glasses now....
