Lee Dong Gook

Might a floated ball to the far post have been preferable to a horribly weak shot to the near, hmmmm?

re: Lee Dong Gook

yes on reflection.

but after watching that vid on youtube i wanted him to have a crack.

could you imagine if it had gone in the place would have fallen down. but anyway he was no where near was he ?

Needs to start against City. Because he is only getting a bit part here and there he is trying a little too hard.

If he'd already scored his first goal then I reckon he'd have squared it/crossed it.

As he cut inside I imagined a thunderbolt into the far top corner and hero status ensured for life...

Sadly the truth was a million miles away!

re: Lee Dong Gook

agreed. He needs to start against city plus its a great reason to rest viduka so hes fit for man ure

re: Lee Dong Gook

i think he should start on saturday instead of viduka against city. Have viduka on the bench ready to bring on if needed. Think he needs to start a game to help him get settled. hes trying 2 hard to prove himself when hes only getting a few mins towards the end of a game. I think hes got the makings of a great player though.

Its good to see him always in close proximity to the yak offering support.

I hope he starts proving himself sooner rather than later as my memory of Peter Davenport becomes clearer with every passing game.

re: Lee Dong Gook

yeah cos keeping in mind he's recently recovered from a bad injury, is in a new country thousands of miles from home where he doesnt speak the language and has played a good 50mins of football i think now is the best time to judge him dont you!!

re: Lee Dong Gook

I just have my reservations. I'm looking forward to seeing how good he actually is.

re: Lee Dong Gook

He should have tried slotting it through to Morrison as he was making a smart run just to Gook's right. But, it was worth a crack I think because as people have said, the roof would have come off if it went in.
I just think he had visions of grandeur for his first goal for Boro when he got the ball, if it was me, I probably would have shot too.

Cant believe people saying we should drop Viduka

re: Lee Dong Gook

SoyDel we should, just for one game, let him freshen up for our huge game at Old Trafford just 2 days later along with Woodgate and a few others.

re: Lee Dong Gook

i dont think anyone is suggesting "dropping" the duke. but how many people can seriously see him playing from the start twice in a few days? he's just not fit enough for that. which is a crying shame.

the gook should get a start against citeh to give him a chance of settling in. trying too hard, trying too much, all because he's not getting enough time to feel his way into games. i still cant see him properly settling until next season with a good pre-season under his belt

re: Lee Dong Gook

I agree, lets keep The Duke fit for Monday's game.

re: Lee Dong Gook

Has the Gook even had a reserve game yet? a run in the reserves would get him a bit of sharpness
