You’re wrong on all three counts, have a nice day and don’t get too stressed.

I mean I'm clearly not wrong on the instagram video thing when I've seen it myself on there. As I'm right about 1 that makes 2 and 3 correct too.

You've had a bit of a mare. All best

Did anyone else see Lookman mouthing “help me” with fear in his eyes? 😳

It was quite harrowing actually 😔

Don’t want to prolong this but that vid was added after original post but doesn’t really matter, so have a nice evening, no response required.

I’m not assuming anything, you said instagram so I looked at Instagram, when you realised that the photo was from Austria you searched for something else which doesn’t really support your original claim,
or am I just assuming that ?

Christ mate. It was the video. Everton post the same video across all social media outlets. Instagram doesn't embed like Twitter on this site, hence I used the latter.

Do you think Lookman wants to play for Everton or do you think he preferably wants to play for RB Leipzig?

I only ask as you say players aren't commodities, but they sometimes just see themselves as employees (without any particular attachment to the club) and as such happy to move when a preferable opportunity arises. Not all players mind you.

I think he would rather be at RBL, and I don't think anyone would disagree. He's been sold on the move and given his relative experiences at both clubs I don't think he can be blamed.

Bit of a grey area I concede. I stated that I don't like seeing player seen as commodities "only". I think fans (of all clubs, not just us) are guilty of forgetting the human aspect. This is a young kid who, as selfish as it sounds to a fan, has to put his career (and life) first. If he's not enjoying being at Everton then so be it. If he hasn't settled for, whatever reason, that shouldn't necessarily be met with such vitriol. Especially when he's done nothing to upset fans (no public statements etc).

In a monetary sense players are of course commodities, but unlike most industries sport goes much deeper and is far more complex. It'd just be nice to see people remember that, rather than froth at the mouth at every opportunity.*

*This is more relevant toward what I've read on Twitter than here, in fairness.

Exactly this! He strikes me as the kind of kid that would read and take to heart the shit written about him on social media. Also as fans we often treat players as guilty until proven innocent, probably born out of jealousy, the 'I would give my right nut to play for Everton' mentality. Both of these ways of thinking are perhaps a bit more acceptable towards an older player, but to a teen/20 year old its unnecessary and doesnt help the club (or country as in the case of sterling).
