Lascelles

Not sure how many noticed, but at the final whistle some old guy couldnt help himself but run onto the pitch and embrace Lascelles.

He was over the moon and having a dance - Lascelles walked him back to the sidelines and when the stewards came to step in, he motioned them away and basically told them to fuck off and let the guy leave with the swarms and effectively not give him some kind of needless ban.

Class act that lad.

Lascelles

Didn't notice that, Sal, class.

Class on the pitch as well. Makes a massive difference to the defence.

There's still something about him that I'm not too sure about, in that I always think he's capable of a mistake, but there's no ignoring how important he is to us.

We've conceded 36 goals in 27 games, which isn't a bad stat to begin with (best outside the top 7, along with Brighton) but without Lascelles in the team we conceded 15 in 5 games.

So with him, that's 21 goals in 22 games - less than a goal a game.

Lascelles

He does have a mistake in him and he does struggle at time - Ashley Barnes gave him a real difficult time against Burnley.

Its easily forgotten that he has just turned 24 though, and is a clear leading character in a team that is one of the youngest in the league. He can and will only get better.

I dont think he will have enough to go to the World Cup this year, but I would bet on him being in the Euro 2020 England squad.

RE: Lascelles

I saw that incident, and he wouldn’t let the stewards near the bloke, good man.

RE: Lascelles

He’s top class, getting better all the time. Real leader & we missed him massively when he was out.

He needs someone of equal stature next to him and Clarke is too soft for that.

Lejuene has his best game since joint yesterday and looked like he could be up to it.

We’ll lose Lascelles if Ashley doesn’t fuck off.

RE: Lascelles

He's the main man, I'm sure certain players wish he would stop nagging them, (namely little Yedlin, Elliot and Darlow) but without him keeping them on their toes it is total chaos, he doesnt half blast them out when they screw up but he gets the balance right, in the home game against palace Cabaye made a terrible tackle on Yedlin, Lascelles sprinted over and started pushing him around and telling him to fuck right off, Cabaye nearly shit himself Big Grin so Lascelles will protect his players aswell as bollocking them and that's how he get's their respect. He's a natural leader and a great captain.

RE: Lascelles

He seems pretty level headed and I doubt he'd just move for the money.

He knows he'll play every week with us. From what I've read in interviews that seems the most important thing to him.
