Lingard is loving life with Albion

The Argus: Jesse Lingard runs away in celebration after his goal yesterday Jesse Lingard runs away in celebration after his goal yesterday

Jesse Lingard reckons there is more to come from his blossoming partnership with Leo Ulloa.

Albion have scored seven goals in the last two games with Ulloa and Lingard sharing five of them.

They set up great chances for each other in yesterday’s 3-0 home win over Charlton.

Lingard said: “We are connecting very well. Kazenga (LuaLua) is coming in as well and we are linking with the striker.

“The confidence is there. We push on now.

“I’ve settled now. I’ve got my name on the score sheet, I’m settling in playing alongside Leo up front so I’m enjoying it, I’m confident.

“Looking at the mentality we had for the Leicester game and the Charlton game, if we have the same now it’s there for the taking.

“The games are going to be tough. Huddersfield won’t be an easy game.

“But we need to have the same mentality.”

He's a real talent, I really rate him, I would love him to stay, he is just full of energy, he never stops running hes a real threat. And hes getting better every game he plays, I thought lua looked disappointed to come off yesterday was a good win against a poor side , it was a shame they took their foot off the pedal for a long spell in second half...it good result in the end..

GRAHAM--yes totally agree---and watching it on my lap top I share your view about taking their foot off the pedal---they should have gone on and got a hatful of goals, I guess that is why the stands were emptying long before the end of the game?? Been good if Lingard hard stated a wish to stay here!!

Lingard's on the books at Man U. His current ambitions are there. His time at Brighton is to give him more experience. However, our job is to get the best out of him while he is here. So far so good.

you need to remember that we have a lot of games in a short space of time im happy that they take the foot off when we are in a comfortable position we need them all as fresh as possible for the remaining games

To baldly go says...

Wasn't sure at first but he is now showing his potential, working alongside Ulloa and LuaLua we could open up any defence!
With all the turmoil going on at Man U, could we tempt him to sign a year long loan or better still sign him up? Moyes is struggling and Lingard was a Fergie player so perhaps regular first team action with an up and coming team might tempt him!

Hats off to Lingard and hands up - I was underwhelmed by his first few games and his comments re his future at ManU... but now he's playing in his preferred role he looks far better. The more I see of him the more I'm reminded of our dearly departed Ashley. He too was capable of missing the most glaringly simple opportunities (sorry lads, couldn't resist that) . Anyway the partnership with Kaz and Leo is really beginning to blossom. I hope it banishes any negative thoughts from the bench and that Huddersfield are put to the sword on Tuesday, just 24 hours after Leicester have corrected their mistakes with 3 points at the Majedski...

You are right, he is a Man Utd player and that is where he is likely to end up at the end of the season. There might be an outside possibility if we get promoted that he might opt to stay, as with us he'd get a regular game in The Prem which he possibly wont get at Man Utd, but he is owned by Man Utd so ultimately it will be their choice to keep him or not.
I said when he first came here that it looked to me like his best position would be alongside Ulloa as he has that deceptive speed and sharpness that would capitalise feeding off a big target man. OG started with him out wide in place of Lua Lua and little came from him. Now OG has reverted to a double spearhead with Jesse & Leo and added Lua Lua as the wide man with a freedom to roam, we look totally different. We have that sharpness that creates chances. Fantastic first goal yesterday because we didn't even have the ball. Lua Lua dispossessed the defender with his harrying, Leo made the run to draw the defence away from the area and Jesse ran in there to poke it past the keeper. Great play by all three of them.
It's so much more positive than playing the "one up front" because it gives us the opportunity to win back the ball before the opposition even get to the half-way line. Playing with a higher line stops them from playing the ball out, denies them time and leads to more re-possession.
GG was voted MoM as he totally dominated his forward, but to be honest it was easy for him as Charlton never got anybody forward to support their man. He was always isolated and outnumbered so it was much easier for GG. That was due to our higher line, the harassing by our forwards and the speed and tenacity of Andrews and Stephens in midfield.
It's a winning formula so please dont change this system OG, it's shows much more promise.

Playing anyone in there best position will get them performing, the 451 we have huffed and puffed with all season is in the bin, 442 suited everyone on the pitch, and I dare say cms will be looking forward to that too when lingard goes back to united.
Yes we could have scored more yesterday , but we went to cruise control and avoided injuries/ bans .. Ideally Reading to lose Monday , and we then have the big game friday, anyone know if trains are running or Sunday service?

Funny how the fans who apparently know so little about the "tactics" of football have hankered for two up front for months ! Even under Gus , strangely we looker better at the back too? 442 is more role defined , Stephens and Andrews look really happy and solid.. Lua lua is getting the ball where he wants to pick it up and run, ward and Bruno both looked to support,
And GG has more time on the ball rather than the midfield being 2 yards off him.
I do think sky sports with there " experts" treat fans as though they are stupid,
And try to make managers jobs so complicated and mysterious!

Even if Man U were to consider letting Lingard go, the chances of the lad signing for us wouldn't be that high as I am sure other prem clubs are aware of him and what he brings to a team.
If it's true that some prem clubs were keeping tabs on Solly March, and why wouldn't it be, then you can bet your last dollar that they are also taking notes on Lingard. I think our best chance of keeping Lingard would be a season long loan deal, that's if the lad would accept that over other options that might come his way.

Don't know about anyone else, but I'd love us to make a bid for Charlton's Cousins. We've little or no chance of retaining Lingard on a permanent basis and I know I'll probably get shouted down, but for me, Cousins was MOM! He was the only real danger for us yesterday.

Cousins has has plenty of game time for Charlton and only scored two goals in the Champ Div, so I wouldn't see him as an alternative to Lingard, but that doesn't make him not worth looking at. Aged just 20 one would think that he is not the finished article, so room for more progress, and at a cost of around 400K he wouldn't break the bank.
Looking at his stats my guess would be that he is in the mould of Stephens rather than Liingard.

I have zero knowledge of the lad other than his stats but he would seem like the type of player that our new facility is designed to provide. I think the amount of game time he has had with Charlton reflects the weakness in their squad rather than how far along his development he is currently at. If he were to join us for next season chances are that he would not get as much playing time as he gets right now.
