Paul Lambert welcomed Gabby Agbonlahor back to the team against Newcastle, and he couldn’t have been more delighted.
Speaking on a blog piece on the Official Site the gaffer said:
‘Gabby coming back in a major plus. You’re not going to catch him if he gets a run at you, that’s for sure. It was a big bonus to have him back, I thought he was excellent, his speed in incredible.’
Over the past few seasons it’s fair to say we have seen the worse of Gabby, injuries didn’t help, but the hands on hips attitude annoyed even the most fervent of his supporters. Against Newcastle however he was back to his best, and we saw that.
Afterall, how many of us wished he’d carried on into the box himself instead of passing to Bent when he picked the ball up in our own half and waltzed past two Newcastle players like they weren’t there?
Give me that Gabby every day of the week and twice on matchdays!
Matthew Lowton probably sums him up at his best:
‘I think it was Chicago, he hit the ball past a defender and chased it down. The defender looked like he was going in reverse.’
