Ulloa's Albion debut in doubt

The Argus: Leonardo Ulloa's Albion debut could be delayed Leonardo Ulloa's Albion debut could be delayed

  Leonardo Ulloa's Albion debut is under threat from red tape and the weather.


  The Argentinian is in the squad for Saturday's trip to Birmingham, subject to the Seagulls receiving international clearance before tomorrow's noon deadline.


  Boss Gus Poyet has been warned it may not come through in time, due to the complicated nature of Ulloa's transfer from Spanish club Almeria.


  The cold snap could also delay squad No. 19 Ulloa's first appearance for Albion, which is likely to be from the bench.


  St Andrews has undersoil heating but Birmingham's FA Youth Cup tie at home to Bristol Rovers, scheduled for Solihull tomorrow night, has already been frozen off.


  Poyet said: "We know it is going to snow on Friday night, that's what the weather forecasters say.


  "You never know what is going to happen but we are travelling early. Birmingham assure us that if what is expected in terms of snow comes down the game is going to be played.


  "If it's worse then maybe we will have a problem. There is nothing you can do, you need to prepare like you are going to play and then we'll see but we are ready."


  Albion's preparations have been disrupted by the sub-zero temperatures. The Amex pitch was the only place they could train yesterday but it was out of bounds today to avoid wear and tear.

Puts into perspective how urgently the new training pitches at the academy are needed. Reminds me of years ago when I used to watch Norman Gall etc training in Hove Park. Nothing like a bit of nostalgia to remind one where we've come from and where we're going.

The weather we can do nothing about, but all this red tape is enough to drive you nuts. No wonder we are becoming a third rate nation. Anyway it may not be a bad thing if the game is postponed as it will give Ulloa mor time to settle in.

When their mercurial winger is sold they will have nothing left and GM will fade. Simple, we will finish above Palace with them maybe 7th on GD. Now wouldn't that be lovely?

Ok Saraman, I see where you are coming from. It's my understanding that Palace are insisting that Zaha stays till the end of the season no matter who buys him. Do you think they will be able to stick to that if they do sell him or would a suitor say no way, not if we are paying 12 to 15 million for him.

Your mention of Norman Gall reminds me of something. Not sure if it's true or not, but it was said to be a toss up whether Bill Nicholson signed Norman or Cyril Knowles for Spurs as their left back. Norman was injured and so Bill Nicholson went with Knowles. Norman may not have had his own song like Knowles but what an Albion legend.

I remember getting Kit Napiers autograph in Stanmer Park in the late 1960's. The Albion used to do pre-season fitness training up and down the hills there.

Looks like we got thru another day without losing any of our players, always a good thing.

Today's news suggests that Ulloa won't get to make the team sheet on saturday, maybe not a bad thing, gives him a few extra days to train with the squad.

Just 14 days of the window left for players to come or go, would like to think that something is happening, one way or the other.
We still have a couple of players that would benefit from leaving.

6ft4 defender? If he can actually play then he will be a nice addition. Nice cover for El Adb and Greer. Or maybe Greer's long term replacement?

In the Sun news paper of today's date it says that Everton and Newcastle are interested in this lad, not sure we can beat them to his signature.
