Perth Glory looking to sign Massimo Luongo


Recommended Posts

Probably one of our top earners and barely plays.

 

If someone is willing to take him and it saves us money we need to let him go.

 

We can't afford not to. He's not worth the money he gets every week.

I’m hoping we a are club no longer run on “ifs” …time to be sensible not sentimental. 

As Rudyard Kipling said


If you can be a scapegoat of crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with crutches because you’re never fit

If no one else for six months would sign you, 

If you had a good season once but now you’re Sh1tt

If you can fill the entire season with sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   

Yours is the signing called a “no brainier”  And—which is more—you’ll be a Wednesday player, my son!

Some players get better when they don’t play. 

Agreed.. never got the hype about him. Before he came here he was a regular for a lower mid table QPR side who were worse than Wednesday at the time. They were happy to let him go, and he didn’t improve on what we had.. wouldn’t say he was better than Hutchinson or Kieran Lee.

 

He’s a steady mid table Championship level midfielder when fit, but he’s not the kind of player that gets you play offs or higher at that level. 
 

We have Bannan, Adeniran, Byers, Wing, Dele-Bashiru and Paterson for 3 positions in midfield. Paterson isn’t a centre forward and that should be his role in a team that plays a 3 man midfield. Can’t see him getting much of a look in with Gregory, Kamberi, Berahino and Windass all able to play up top.

 

Our first choice midfield 3 wouldn’t include Luongo. He must be on about 15 grand a week which will be far more than the others apart from Bannan, and on top he’s fit for about 10 games a season.

 

So it really is a no brainer to let him go.

don’t change the story to suit. They wanted him to stay but he wouldn’t sign a new contract that’s why he was available.

I didn’t know that but that sounds money related as he switched one mid table Championship team for another one that was showing signs of decline.

 

Which then leaves the question if he was that good why weren’t QPR offering him more money to withstand interest from Sheffield Wednesday.

 

The story is that he’s a mid table Championship midfielder when fit, nothing more nothing less. And he’s rarely fit and financial luxury for us when we have other players more than capable in his position

Luongo joined QPR the season after they were relegated, so they had parachute payments and I'm pretty sure around the time they were spending stupid money. Fast forward a few years and QPR wanted to lower their wage bill, this meant they offered Luongo a reduced deal, they still wanted him though. Luongo said no to the deal, so QPR decided to sell and take some cash. It's something that as a club we should have done with so many players.
