Kaz LuaLua is a precocious footballer but can also be a frustrating footballer.
Oscar had started the winger in the previous four games before the Yeovil game at the Amex on Friday, when he was dropped to the bench. As we went in search of the breakthrough that we desperately needed he turned to LuaLua and he came up trumps scoring the goal that put us ahead.
Now a decision needs to be made on starting him against Nottingham Forest or leaving him as an impact player from the bench?
He's been branded a 'special player' by Oscar in the Argus today with the Albion head coach also praising his potential but he knows he needs to 'manage him' too.
'He has big potential. He is a special player and you have to treat him as a special player.
'We are trying to manage him as best as we can and I think he is playing really well.
'He hadn't played four or five games in a row until this season and he's working hard on his defence. He is improving and hopefully he will keep improving for the rest of his career.
'He is the kind of player that can be the perfect impact player for any team but I don't want him only as an impact. He can help us during 90 minutes, over several games in a row.'
I think when Oscar says he has to 'manage him' what he really means is LuaLua can be a frustrating player as I've stated but he's also an extremely gifted one so it's a hard call to make for the game on Saturday.
Should he start and not carry on as he left off against Yeovil that would be a disappointment, if he didn't get a start that might disappoint LuaLua himself and if turned to he might not make the impact required.
Who would be a manager!
The return of Andrea Orlandi also gives Oscar another option, which he also spoke about being happy with.
