Thread: Harrison

    Harrison

    Wonder if he could do an Alioski and convert to LB once we have a fully fit squad - he certainly runs enough and tracks back a lot?

    Don't see that personally, Harrison quite often loses his man or gets done by their full backs when he should be marking them.

    It is never his effort but just doesn't quite have the mind for it sometimes and has cost us a few goals.

    Funny you mention Harrison alongside Alioski.

    Harrison when hes on his game is a pleasure to watch, provides some great assists and scores some sublime goals. Trouble is, hes rarely on his game.
    Alioski was at it EVERY single game, very consistant IMO, both made frequent mistakes tracking back, but id have Alioski in the side before Harrison every week. We miss his ability to get into the face of the opposition and wind em up, and crazily, alioski was one of our best players in the air despite being a midget (can i say that!). Factor in the huge wedge Harrison cost compared to Alioski also.

    I was hoping we'd send Harrison back after loan 1 never to return. But it's Leeds so we give them 10mill and him a big contract. Iveneverratedhim and he has had the odd good game but it's no nowhere near enough. No matter how bad he was Bielsa played him, he now does the same with Roberts. As Joel said, he switches off and ball watches and players get in behind him, like Lamptey v Brighton, and even when he does cover a player they always seem to get the cross in. He's lightweight in the tackle, is afraid to challenge for headers and is too honest when he gets fouled.

    Think he has all the physical attributes and the talent. I think he lacks confidence and seems to overthink things and become paralysed when he is struggling.

    Would pick Dan James to start all day long but think he might do okay at LB.

    Harrison wears the kit with pride and always give it 100%.

    Think he really misses Alioski. they were quite a team.

    Yeah, he's just an average player, who just happens to have scored a hat trick against a team in the top 4 giving us our first win against Spam away in 20 years, bang average I'd say.
