LUFC West Brom Fans View - Jerome Thomas

Vital West Brom editor Baggy Boy has been in touch to give Vital Leeds United the lowdown on our new loan signing Jerome Thomas.

What are his strengths and weaknesses?


Strengths are clearly running at the opposition and dragging players out of position, but there is more to him than that as he doesn't mind doing the grunt work in terms of tracking back and helping out the defence when required.

Under Hodgson he was given more defensive responsibilities (well the whole team were really) and whilst it held him back from attacking, I think the experience has benefited him and helped turn him into a more well rounded player.

Only real weakness that I'd pick out is pretty generic to wide players. They can tend to go missing at points if the play doesn't revolve around them, but as said, by adding the defensive discipline to his game, I wouldn't say he goes missing often now because he knows there's the other side of the game to get involved with.

What is his best position?

Wide left is predominantly where we utilise him, with Odemwingie taking the right wide spot normally, but he can play through the middle in a more direct role if required.

Are you disappointed that he has not been given much of a chance this season?

He's spent a lot of time out injured to be fair, was crocked at the tail end of last season, and he's not quite got going this season yet as it feels like every time he gets back into training, another niggle comes along that lays him low again.

I believe he's played two U21 games recently, so I imagine the loan is to get him back up to speed properly, get him sharp and bring some of his confidence back.

Best describe him in three words

Exciting, skilful, direct.



Thanks to Baggy Boy for the lowdown on Jerome
