Okay, fine. But maybe it would have been worth noting those points originally rather than ignoring his play in Germany entirely. Just b/c you don't posses relevant information does not make it irrelevant. And it is a bit weird that you are seemingly trying to spin your own lack of knowledge as some sort of defense in your favor during an online debate, especially when it suggests that you are not really in the best position to evaluate his potential impact on our team.
And for the record, while I did not watch any of his games live, I did read each review and watch every highlight (including all his goals and assists) from his time in Germany that I could get my hands on, and I am basing my own evaluation, in part, on that information.
Iím not trying to spin anything, Iím just saying I didnít see those games. That doesnít make them irrelevant, but it also doesnít make them something that theyíre not.
In total minutes terms he played about 6 and a half games of football during his loan spell there. Even if I was sat in the stands in Germany, thatís a very small sample size of football.
My really tiny original point was simply that itís hard to gauge his potential contribution for the season still despite his loan time. Heís not had any close a full season in the Premier League yet. Sure he has the potential to do well because he has talent, but is he up to the rigors of a full season?
Personally, I still see him as a work in progress that may still make some of his better contributions from the bench against tired legs. Given how RB used him, they treated him kinda the same...he moved there in January after all and only started 7 games I think so they gave him plenty of time out of the limelight. So Iíd rather we had another player to rotate with and not put too much reliance on Lookman.
Thatís not an attack on Lookman, itís about having options as a club and being prepared as a club for a player who might well have some ups and downs...and also giving him and us some proper competition for his place.
