Luke Moore Signs For WBA

Recommended Posts

The 22-year-old joined the Baggies on loan in February and made three starts and seven substitute appearances as they clinched the Championship title. Moore, who won his fifth England Under-21 cap in March's goalless draw with Poland at Molineux, has penned a deal which will keep him at Albion until at least the summer of 2011. The deal also has included a further year's option in the club's favour and the eventual fee could rise to £3.5million depending on performance-related criteria. Moore is a product of Villa's youth system and was a prolific goalscorer for their academy and reserve teams. Alongside brother Stefan, he was part of the club's FA Youth Cup-winning side in 2002. Moore followed his brother into the first team reckoning at Villa Park and scored his first top-flight goal in the 2-0 win over Middlesbrough in March 2005. The 2005-06 season proved his most productive in a claret and blue shirt as Moore scored eight Premiership goals in 16 starts, including a hat-trick at Middlesbrough in February 2006. Moore also got off to a flyer in 2006/07, scoring twice in the first eight games, only for a shoulder injury to rule him out for six months. But he returned to notch twice in half a dozen late-season substitute appearances. Moore scored twice in nine starts for Villa last term. In total, Moore made 41 starts for Villa, plus 57 sub appearances, scoring 15 goals. He also scored four goals in six appearances during a loan spell at Wycombe in 2003/04.

Decent potential, absolute top c*nt.Bought me a pint before though so i cant dislike him too much.Used to go to grime sets almost every day with his younger half brother who was an aspiring mc, which pretty much summed Luke up.Chose WBA over Boro again, which sums it up even more - wants to stay near home.

wasnt too pleased when i first heard bout this, he did an ok job this season, but more i think about it the better it sounds. we not gonna be able to buy established prem goal scorers, so getting one with potential is the realistic option, just hope it pays off.

That trio L.Moore-Carew-Agbonlahor would be such a ridiculous counter attack if they developed more.
