Hulse can improve - Ellis


Leeds fans can expect plenty more from two-goal hero Rob Hulse, according to
assistant boss Sam Ellis.

The West Brom striker, on loan at Elland Road until the end of the season,
marked his debut with a stunning double as Leeds swept aside Reading 3-1 on
Saturday.

"He's only played seven reserve games before arriving here, which is not an
awful lot, so we think he'll get better as time goes on," said Ellis.

"Maybe it was adrenalin that carried him through - but if he can better than
that then we'll be delighted.

"We'd been chasing him for a good while. He will definitely improve us up
front. He gives us good options and you can't have enough good players in
the squad."

Hulse had failed to force himself into former West Brom boss Gary Megson's
first-team plans following promotion to the Premiership and by the time
Bryan Robson arrived at The Hawthorns he had fallen down the pecking order.

You cant get much more of a better start really for a debut.

Hulse is a good Championship player, but I dont really think he's got his mind set in the Premiership.

Leeds seem to have taken off a bit now, I hope they can keep it up :)

Yes they're beginning to even look placed for the play offs until you look at how many games they've played. Everyone's got games in hand on them.

Leeds set to seal Hulse deal
11:31 April, 18, 2005
On-loan striker Rob Hulse will make a permanent move to Elland Road in the
summer according to reports


The 25-year-old has scored six goals in ten games since joining from West
Bromwich Albion in a deal until the end of the season and with no future at
the Hawthorns is keen to stay with the Whites.

Leeds have reportedly agreed a fee of around £600,000 for the former Crewe
forward.

Playoff spot should be possible. Maybe even straight promotion. English championship is quite unpredictable league and we are one unpredictable club.

Hulse revives career with Leeds after West Brom cold shoulder
10 May 2005


Rob Hulse looked ahead yesterday towards a promotion battle with Leeds
next season - with no regrets over quitting a West Bromwich side he will not
be disappointed to see relegated.

Leeds have splashed out an initial £800,000 for the striker, who has
spent the last three months on loan from Albion, with the fee rising to
£1.1m dependent on future success. The 25-year-old, with six goals in his 13
appearances for Leeds, has signed a three-year contract through to June 2008
just a year after helping the Baggies clinch promotion to the Premiership.
Hulse scored 13 goals as Albion finished runners-up to Norwich, but after
the early part of this season was wrecked by injury, he was then barely
given a look in after the arrival of new manager, Bryan Robson.

For Hulse, joining Leeds has been the rekindling of his career, as he
said: "It's been a breath of fresh air coming here and I've loved every
minute of it. I'm proud to be at a massive club like this. The management
showed faith in me when others perhaps thought twice because I had been out
for so long. It makes me want to succeed for this club even more. Obviously,
I'm disappointed I didn't get a decent chance with Albion, but I got injured
and you can't help those things.

"Bryan said to me he had not seen a lot of me, and because the club
were struggling he couldn't really throw me in, although he told me he was
willing to let me go out on loan. But the chairman explained to me he didn't
want to see me in an Albion shirt again, which is fair enough. Now I'm not
really bothered whether they stay up. It's a part of my career I don't look
back on too favourably. I've still got friends there and they are a good
bunch of lads. For their sake, I just hope they do themselves justice."

But Hulse can sense the beginning of a major revival at Elland Road,
particularly with the job manager Kevin Blackwell has done in stabilising
the club after relegation. Hulse added: "This club will be going places next
season - I wouldn't have signed if I didn't think that was the case."

Good luck for Hulse and Leeds Utd - you guys belong in the Premiership, no doubt about that.

I remember Healy from his early days at Preston and I also saw him in some international games and I always thought he offers something special. He can surely be a 20-goal striker in the championship.

Yes, Healy is the most promising player we have right now. First time I saw him play was when Northern Ireland played a friendly against Estonia and Healy was clearly their best player. So I hoped a lot from him when he joined Leeds and so far he hasn't dissapointed. Having Healy-Hulse partnership up front is one of the main reasons to feel confident about next season.

Healy is a quality player, wasted stuck out on the left. Although he is stille affective in this position, playing him up front Hulse is a must.
