Luke Moore Hunky-Dory?

Luke Moore Hunky-Dory?

Luke Moore's agent says the player is happy but he does want to talk over O'Learys future plans for the striker.

We reported last week that Fulham were interested in signing Moore, a claim that was denied by the player who said as far as he was concerned he would be a Villa player next season. However it seems the 20-year-olds agent wants to thrash out the future plans for the striker after he was dropped for the last six games of the season.

Steve Kutner said 'I have spoken with Luke and he is very happy. I have not yet spoken to David but will do so after the World Cup to see what his plans for Luke are. If those plans are the same as Luke's then everything will be hunky-dory.'

Did he really go all David Bowie and say 'hunky-dory'?

It must have puzzled Moore to be our joint Premiership top scorer (8 goals along with Baros) only to find himself frozen out at the end of the season but there can surely be no guarantees in football?

Moore is under contract until 2008 having signed last summer after being courted by Scottish giants Rangers as well as London minnows Fulham.

Plans... what plans O'Leary doesn't appear to have any , or if he does then Ellis will make sure they never come to fruition. Surely his agent should be told that IF Luke produces the goods on a regular basis he will be in contention for a first team place and dependant upon form and injuries of himself and others that will determine what happens. What more can O'leary tell him ?

I really didnt see a problem in giving Gabby a few games at the end of last season although it wouldve helped if the manager had offered Luke Moore a few words of encouragement at the same time.

Fatloser, you're exactly right, thats what the basis of the conversation between O'Leary and Moore should consist of. It should also be the basis of every conversation between manager and player, regardless of who the player is or what the player has done in the past. Any player who wants guarantees on first team football, whether thats Hendrie, Moore, Baros or Ronaldinho should be told what to do with themselves in two easy words.

Would be great to see him develop over the next year or so, got so much more to offer and he is still learning. He should be kept. Can see in years to come him and Gabby up front.

Not at all sure that he's the happy camper that he ought to be. It definitely appears that there were words between Luke and DOL towards the end of last season, because he rather amazingly disappeared completely out of the limelight. After his outstanding hat-trick outing at The Riverside though, he didnt push on as he possibly should have done buoyed by that confidence boost. He seemed to stand still, lost the plot a little, and in many ways O'Leary was right to rest him. He needs to start from scratch next season, earn his starting place, then ensure that he doesnt lose it to whoever. As for selling him, no way.
