Albion fan here.

 

I see he had an excellent game yesterday and you like him. I posted on here earlier in the week to say how pleased we were that he was with you on loan.

To answer a couple of questions;

He has played in our first team a handful of times over the past few seasons, and we know that he is a real talent. However, he is young and just needs to get game experience and 'bulk up' really. Last season we were crying out for him to go on loan, but we were running with such a thin squad we needed him. This year we have several players out on loan, so someone somewhere has been listening.

 

When he did play, he was one to watch and could get round the back with ease. If I had a criticism of him, he didn't release the ball early enough and occasionally tried to beat too many players.

 

He isn't in the current WBA squad because we have Matty Phillips, Chris Brunt, James McLean, Jay Rodrigues and we have just bought Ollie Burke. WBA supporters have mixed views about some of those but they are ahead of Jonathan at the moment. He is not fully ready for the Premiership...... just yet, but I hope he has a really good season with you and helps you to a good finish. If you go onto our websites, you will see that we are all watching with interest..........

We had a young gangly Lukaku with us a few seasons ago, and he didn't turn out too bad. Imagine what Leko could be like in a couple of years time ? He will be too good for us!!!!

No. Season long loans are season long loans and don't come with recall options.

If the deal contains an agreement to allow a recall then yes they can. Both clubs must agree it though.

I just watched the highlights and replayed his tricks as he was brought down for the pen about 20 times. Can't stop watching it. The dejected look on Keogh's face is amazing... "B*gger, I've been done."

It was phenomenal. You could tell he was looking for it, Keogh bit and the way he reacts afterwards is priceless.

Doubtful. Usually a loan fee exchanges hands which prevents recall of players.

Good point - don't think it's been mentioned anywhere whether there is a recall clause , or a fee involved etc

As far as I am aware there is no recall option now when a player is loaned out and he can only return to his parent club at the end of the period. It`s nothing to do with what`s in the agreement, them`s the EFL rules. If he went back to Baggies and they played him they would effectively be playing an unregistered player as we hold his registration until the loan period expires.

Just realised how good this is gonna make us look again, Leko was obviously more well known than Tammy, but if he has a great season, gets a lot of game time, we can keep on picking up top class youngsters from the big clubs.

Wow how good is this lad! For me tough choice but thought he was MOM. Had that full back beat every time and did fantastic for the first 2 goals. Great to watch.

Confident on the ball, excellent technical skills, scares the shit out of the opposition... damn he's going to be good for us this season.

A colleague is a season ticket holder at St James' and said if we have any pace, Stoke have no answer to it; hoping Leko is eligible for us!

LJ said post match that Eliasson will start and I'd have thought Pato gets the other spot hoping Leko is available though.

He could be the most important arrival of this season. Terrified the opposition defence and at times was unplayable.

A young, hungry, quick Fancy Daps.  what a find.

Fantastic player. Just breezes past people and he seems to link up well with Reid already. Although the guy next to me was slating LJ for puting Leko on the right because apparently 'Leko is a centre forward not a winger. He's never played out wide. And square peg, round hole etc'

Expect you know this already, but that guy needs to brush up his knowledge.

Leko specifically talks about having played wide and (I believe) said his favoured position was LW.

I think it's usually a given with a player like him these days - wouldn't be surprised if it's 7 figures.

Probably is, but West Brom were offering him to us, rather than us asking for him. So we could well have negotiated it down a bit.

Well maybe but they wouldn't have been short of options for Leko so I'm sure there was a fee involved.

Not disputing that, but we would have been in a position to negotiate the fee down a bit.

Honestly, we have nothing to fear. Pulis wouldnt call him back if he could.. the bloke hates flair. If on the other hand Leko had the longest throw in league football.. we probably wouldn't have him now

Or was about seven feet tall and a threat from set pieces.

Grateful that he's been ok about City and stuff, he's not all bad by any means.. but he is a bit sort of anti-football ol' Tone. Mr. Tony i'd take a 0-0 Pulis.. bless the guy

Cup-tied. Came off the bench for them against Accrington.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I'm not going to pretend I know anything about your team. That's not being disrespectful to BC by the way, it's just that my footballing knowledge of anything outside of Stoke City is pretty shocking. But as Manuel from Fawlty Towers would say, "I learn."

Probably not as skillful one on one as Leko, but definitely quicker, if you have a problem with pace you have a problem with this one.

Tbf I doubt anyone outside of our club knows about him!

Signed him from Sweden in the summer after he was names in their first divisions team of the season, looks like an exciting prospect, quick with a good delivery on him but hasn't been getting much game time due to his defensive game being poor (according to LJ anyway...)

Getting a game against you on Tuesday apparently so will be interesting to see him play

I'm not sure we really have a problem with pace. Dealing with crosses seems to be the major problem, usually from corners. It's been a consistent issue since Hughes took over. Thought we'd sorted it as we now have three decent big units in the centre. They've made us more solid in open play, but our use of zonal marking seems to be making us a bit too easy to pick off from set-pieces.

It's a shame that so many exciting players are probably falling by the wayside because of the modern day need for wingers in particular to track back. I blame Pulis. :gaah:

Another great thing about this loan is that it gives time for Eliasson to adapt to the championship without throwing him in and when leko does leave we have an already made replacemeant for him.
