Gaardsoe: "Gera's great"

Gaardsoe: "You can see Zoltan's a really good player because of the way he treats the ball and the way he passes it around - he's a clever player and he'll be good for us."
By Oliver Bhurrut





THOMAS Gaardsoe watched Zoltan Gera make an impressive full debut in last night's (Wednesday) 1-1 draw against Tottenham and then insisted: "He's got a bright Hawthorns future."


The Hungary skipper made himself an instant favourite with the Albion hordes by firing Gary Megson's men into a third-minute lead with only his second touch of the game.


And the Ł1.5 million summer signing continued to royally entertain a capacity home crowd with a gymnastic goal celebration which led to a chorus of 'Gera, Gera' ringing around the Black Country venue.


Gaardsoe said: "Zoltan showed us what he is capable of on Sunday and he continued yesterday, he looked fresh and sharp.


"He has some great ideas and made a big contribution.


"Scoring was great for him as well and you can see he's a really good player because of the way he treats the ball and the way he passes it around - he's a clever player and he'll be good for us."


The Danish international claims the Baggies were probably guilty of failing to turn the screw on Spurs once they had taken the lead.


But Gaardsoe is happy with the way he and his team-mates have settled back into Premiership life with a three-game unbeaten start.


"We played better in the first two games," he added.


"Scoring an early goal was probably our biggest disadvantage because after that we settled down and we shouldn't have done that. We should have continued putting them under pressure and trying to score a second.


"It would have been great for us to score after they had just equalized but unfortunately Kanu was off-side when he put it in the net.


"You can't do anything about that, it's just bad luck.


"It was one of those games but we're still undefeated and the confidence is growing each time we don't lose.


"I feel pretty good and if we can get a win in the next couple of games that will be really good for the whole squad and club."


Gaardsoe, who has just been called up to his first competitive Denmark squad for their World Cup qualifier against the Ukraine on Saturday, September 4, is now hoping to improve as a player in the top flight.


"It is hard in the Premiership but I'm enjoying it more here than I did in the First Division," he insisted.


"Premiership football is probably better suited for my style of football.


"It's so much more physical in the First Division, whereas I like to play with the ball and read the game.


"I just hope I can continue to build my game with the squad and hopefully play a lot of games."

GERA ZOLI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Baggies find the right Gera

Zoltan Gera inspired West Brom to their first Barclays Premiership win and eased the pressure on under-fire boss Gary Megson.

The Hungarian's 65th minute header capped a superb individual performance
at The Hawthorns and sealed a nervy success against high-flying Bolton. Gera had provided the cross from which Kanu swept Albion ahead nine minutes earlier.finale, Albion held firm to give a much-needed boost to Megson.

Responding to rumours that this could be his last match in charge of Albion, Megson had taken the bold step of dropping record #3million signing Robert Earnshaw to the bench in place of the in-form Geoff Horsfield.

And he replaced midfield playmaker Jason Koumas with the relatively unproven Gera - leaving himself open to criticism were his tactics to fail.

But he was boosted by a poor show from Sam Allardyce's Bolton who looked anything but a side who started the day in fourth place.

Recalled 37-year-old Les Ferdinand had had the first shot in the Albion box which was blocked by returning defender Darren Moore.

From then on the first half belonged to Albion and in particular to Gera, who was at the centre of most of his side's attacking moves.

In the eighth minute he hit a low shot which flashed just wide of Jussi Jaaskelainen's right-hand post.

Horsfield raced onto Kanu's through ball to shoot straight at the Bolton `keeper one minute later, then Gera had a powerful drive deflected over the bar.

The home side came even closer in the 11th minute when Moore's powerful header from a Jonathan Greening corner was booted off the line by Gary Speed.

Albion were taking charge of a surprisingly open game with Gera's exciting, shoot-on-sight approach leading to another long-range effort blazing high and wide in the 18th minute.

Speed's foul on Gera led to a dangerous free-kick on the edge of the Bolton box but Greening's quick, lofted effort fell into the arms of Jaaskelainen.

But as time ticked by and more Albion chances went begging the wisdom of dropping Earnshaw was being questioned.

Greening wasted a superb chance in the 21st minute when he caught Moore's flick-on on his chest before volleying over the bar from an unmarked position in the box.

Bolton had produced nothing of note until the 25th minute when a lapse in Albion's defence came close to giving the visitors the lead.

Ricardo Gardner cut inside Gera and Bernt Haas from the left flank and when his initial shot was spilled by `keeper Russell Hoult, Kevin Nolan poked the rebound against the post from point-blank range.

Gera came close yet again on the stroke of half-time when he cut in from the right and unleashed a low left-foot effort which blazed inches wide of Jaaskelainen's left-hand post.

Albion's first chance of the second half also fell to Gera after Greening's accurate cross from the left flank. But the Hungarian's header clattered against defender Bruno N'Gotty and deflected away from danger.

Albion finally snatched a richly deserved lead via the opposite flank in the 56th minute when Gera's cross found Kanu in front of goal and was swept home with consummate ease by the Nigerian.

And Gera's contribution was even more impressive by the 65th minute when he rose highest to head home Greening's corner and celebrated in acrobatic fashion in front of the Albion fans.

Bolton had little more to lose at that point and threw themselves forward though they were fortunate to reduce the deficit in the 73rd minute.

Giannakopoulos' free-kick from way out on the left was flapped at by Hoult and eluded everybody on its way into the Albion net. Radhi Jaidi and Gardner both had late chances to grab a point for Bolton - but Albion clung on to grab a potentially priceless victory for their boss.

Wow, I can't remember reading a game summary where one player seemed to dominate a game so much. I'd kill to see this game. Hopefully Sky has the highlights here in the USha

After Zoli scored the goal, he told the camera: "MEGYÜNK HAZA".
