Ulloa: I had to say thanks to fans

Leo Ulloa is surrounded by Derby fans after the play-off second leg

Ulloa makes his way over to Albion fans

He salutes Albion's supporters - with plenty of stewards for company

First published in Sport by

Leo Ulloa has told Albion fans he “was not even thinking of goodbyes” when he thanked them after play-off defeat.

But the Argentinean, pictured, believes he can improve next season, no matter who is in charge.

The Seagulls striker is likely to be the subject of transfer speculation this summer after scoring 16 goals in a season interrupted by injury, He stayed on the pitch at Derby to clap Albion supporters as hordes of home fans charged on to the pitch after their side’s 4-1 play-off win on Sunday.

Ulloa told The Argus: “Those people support us all year.

“It was for the people who went to Derby and for the people who go every week to the Amex.

“I was sorry the season finished the way it did.

“Going over to the supporters was the least I could do.

“That is all I was thinking about at that moment after the final whistle went.

“Going over to thank them for the season and for that match, which did not go well.

“It wasn’t Goodbye. It was just Thanks.

“I’ve got three more years on my contract. I wasn’t even thinking about goodbyes.”

I see Leeds the club in total disarray just posted losses of 9.5 million for 12-13
Actually less than our books! Perhaps TB should be looking at just what DB is achieving here?

This guy demonstrated just how he felt, and it was appreciated by the travelling supporters. To make his way over to our corner of the ground against a mass of celebrating home fans took a lot of courage and it looked as if he got a few knocks on the way.
Leo was followed by Caldi and they both showed that they have the sort of passion for the club that will help drive the new squad onwards for the future.

That was a moment that will forever be imprinted on my mind, a real lump in the throat moment. Goes to show that leo understands what's important, whatthe priorities are. After such a hideous defeat, he could have skulked off and sulked. But he didn't, he battled through the celebrating hoards to come and show us his appreciation. What a guy, hope he doesn't go.

Easily a 20+ goalscorer for the sason. Could have made the 20 goal mark this season; the odd easy hance and penaly missed. I think althout out a while with injury he still had class and battles every match being on his own for most of them. A fit Stephens and Crofts running off him will be key and we do need a strong creative player to mix it up.
Yes Leo may go but it will need to be 7 million. Anything less and I will be very dissappointed withthe club(although I am a little disappoined with them now but will bite my tongue and see what happens.

He is a goal every two games, clearly he played when injured as well, considering the poor service last season, and him arriving with language problems and the pace of the division he has shown class,
I would think he would have scored 25-30 this season had he played for Burnley , Leicester or even Derby .

Albion In Staffs says...

The self perpetuating rumours of a big money transfer for LU, increase the need for the manager's position to be dealt with sooner rather than later.
Contractual issues have to be made at this time of year and those left behind are obviously the only ones who can do that, but I'm unnerved by major decisions that could tie the hands of the new man before he's even started.
It's a difficult balancing act for the club, but I hope we don't make further irreversible decisions before Sherwood (sorry the new man) is appointed.

Thanks to all released players . Hope to goodness yesterday posting by someone saying Andrews staying was some kind of joke ? He was top of my release list.
TK definately went of the boil from Jan ,but i think perhaps he thinks he is better than he is. In big games Fergie always thoughr he had a mistake in him. Looking back actually in our important games he did , still up there with my top 4 albion keepers though.
The new manager is key to our new signings. If they start coming just after new man i think they will have been pre chosen.
If Young manager as i suspect it will means Burke will retain control,older more experienced guy(girl ,could be) will mean Burke will of had his wings 'clipped" ??

I seriously think Burke job is untenable, imagine another farce of manager wanting to resign? The club now have a massive PR job regaining some semblance of normality , Gus was clearly right when when he said we had reached our ceiling, now with parachute payments getting bigger we will struggle for top 3 places, which means play offs against sides with bigger budgets..

I rate Ulloa at our level, but, I think the big man will be gone before pre season starts, promoted clubs will be looking to increase their fire power. Ulloa has potential and at about £7m for a striker it is only a small risk to take if it comes off.
Personally, I think he will struggle at the higher level, if he thinks he gets rough treatment in the championship, wait until he gets into the prem, and he does not have the pace required to beat defenders on the ground imo.

I don't thik it would have any real influence on a decision by LU if a big money bid was accepted by BHA for him but he's developed some strong friendships among the squad, notably IC. IC isn't going anywhere and maybe, just maybe, he'll have a quiet word in LU's ear. And before anyone points out that the club could ship him out for a big bid I do think they would talk to him. I also know LU might like a big signing on fee and PL football. But I agree with others that he may struggle to get first team games in some PL clubs and I don't think that would suit him.

So before I'm slated for being naive or something - we can all dream and hope that he stays can't we?

mbts.
What I said was, clubs coming down will have to act to cut their losses and costs in the first year, this will account for a large part of the first year's parachute payment.
If they do the right things during year one they will have more flexibility in year two, if they don't bounce straight back up to the prem, but they will still have to cut their losses. The screw will tighten on all clubs if they don't comply.

I don't see how this relates to your claim that I said, 'we are doomed,' which in fact I didn't say.

Easily a 20+ goalscorer for the sason. Could have made the 20 goal mark this season; the odd easy hance and penaly missed. I think althout out a while with injury he still had class and battles every match being on his own for most of them. A fit Stephens and Crofts running off him will be key and we do need a strong creative player to mix it up.
Yes Leo may go but it will need to be 7 million. Anything less and I will be very dissappointed withthe club(although I am a little disappoined with them now but will bite my tongue and see what happens.
He is a goal every two games, clearly he played when injured as well, considering the poor service last season, and him arriving with language problems and the pace of the division he has shown class,
I would think he would have scored 25-30 this season had he played for Burnley , Leicester or even Derby .
Yet again you are 100% correct MBTS.

This guy demonstrated just how he felt, and it was appreciated by the travelling supporters. To make his way over to our corner of the ground against a mass of celebrating home fans took a lot of courage and it looked as if he got a few knocks on the way.
Leo was followed by Caldi and they both showed that they have the sort of passion for the club that will help drive the new squad onwards for the future.

Yes it was noticeable that these were the only two that struggled through the Derby fans on the pitch to come over to us. The rest just ran off the pitch. Well done to Ulloa and Calderon. Also, looking forward to Ulloa and CMS starting a match together and can see them scoring goals, which were in short supply this season. Lets hope he stays.

Are players no longer instructed to get off the pitch as soon as possible after the final game of the season?

Yeah - all very interesting - but he won't be here next season.
Where's he going then?
Leicester 7 million .
Sorry I love Len, but he doesn't look like a 7 million pound man, but your only as good as the people around you. Hope he has a strike partner next season 4, 4, 2.
