Rob Lee: “Elliot was never really given a chance”

lee2Former Newcastle  and West Ham player, Rob Lee has explained how his son Elliot would be a good signing for Newcastle when writing his column for The Newcastle Chronicle, and how if they came in for him he would advise his son to make the move.

Elliot Lee was released by the Hammers this summer and his father claims the Hammers did not give his son the chance he deserved.

“At West Ham, I thought he deserved a chance over the likes of Emmanuel Emenike and Nikica Jelavic, both of whom just sat on the bench, Elliot was never really given a chance even though he scored in the Europa League. You never know how good someone is going to be until you give them a Premier League chance; just look at Harry Kane.”

“There’s so many rumours of clubs out there, but if Newcastle did come in for him then I would certainly recommend to him that he goes there,” Lee added. “With Rafa Benitez, they have a great manager again and the club will hopefully get back to what it was before.”

  1. Rob, you are blinded by Elliot being your lad.
    I watched him numerous times at youth and U21 level. I also saw him when he was on loan at Colchester.
    Lacks any pace, and was lazy off the ball.
    He will never make the top level, in fact I think Ollie was a better all round player, but again just didn’t have that little extra to make it.
    In the cold light of day you know this to be true.
