I'm starting to think his versatility will be his down fall

All good points. He just fails to even get close with most of his shooting. Even Cenk’s 1st goal of the brace he scored was because DCL missed an absolute sitter. You can’t teach a striker to score. It’s natural and instinctive. He just doesn’t have it. Will be very good at everything else besides his most important job.

I think that's the key though isn't it. He's not a striker really, he's more of a forward player who sometimes gets in and around the box and will bag a goal every now and then.

He's just not the player Kane is as when he was coming through he got dogs abuse from shooting miserably from anywhere and got shunted down the leagues to hopefully refine it, which he did. DCL has good technique, athletic physique, a willing runner but you won't find him in and around the area looking like he's desperate to get on the scoresheet. Maybe it'll come with time and experience.

What’s the point then? A forward player who plays like a defensive midfielder but can’t play midfielder.

He needs to add goals to his game. Otherwise he won’t make it as a premier league player.

How’s Lookman doing at RBL? He getting much game time?

On the bench tonight.

Think after the first few games that’s what he’s been limited to, although that’s more than he might have got here...

Was absolutely the wrong move for lookman you go on loan to get minutes. Been a wasted opportunity for him.

There’s ambition then there’s delusion. He should have gone and dominated the championship rather than not played for a quality side.

They should have given him a go tonight.  What they tried...ain't work at all.

Good on him for wanting to test himself in a foreign league at his age.

Not much he could've learnt in the championship that he doesn't already know.

They go on loan to get minutes. He needed to pick a side he'd have a bigger role for. It was pretty much tied on that wouldn't happen with this move.

He’s got more league minutes for RB Leipzig this season than he has for us.

He’s been involved in 6 of the 8 league games they’ve had since he got there.

Granted but I'd rather have seen him playing a vital role at a championship club rather than stay here or be in Germany

He’s getting “minutes” like you say you wanted him to get but at a much higher standard than the one you believe he should be playing at while surrounded by better players and learning from better coaches.

You’re making out like he’s sat on his arse eating a bratwurst every game.
