Yes, we should be patient while he engineers a move away from the club.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

High point for me was the screenshot of him tweaking his johnson

Stats bomb pod reckon he’s > richarlison.

Or has a higher ceiling anyway.

To be fair - I was backing him to have a ‘better season under silva than Richarlison did’ etc. A few weeks ago so I can’t really talk.

I like Ted but that was a weird take.

If I remember correctly you were right along with me saying something similar.

I’m only going off the Paul Riley tweet, not listened to the pod yet but I can understand where they’re coming from (mins per goal contribution maybe? The fact Lookman looks like a potentially elite finisher vs richarlisons profilagacy in front of goal).

I don’t know if it’s connected to the fact we’ve now signed richarlison but I now disagree strongly. Haha.

I'm not sure you can judge with any real degree of confidence whose ceiling is higher.

Lookman's performance, purely on numbers, looks better on the face of it. It's confounded by so many of Lookman's minutes (and half his goals) over the past couple of years coming off the bench though.



Broadly agree.

I'm also not sure how you would weight Richarlison having a bit more about him physically versus Lookman probably being able to create more for others.

Yeah I agree with that as well.

Not sure about creating because you can measure that.

But richarlison is physically a monster. Boss in the air, good 1v1, good outball on the break..

Wouldn’t sell for anything that wasn’t eye watering to be honest. What’s 20-25m in this market? He gets 5-10 goals in the prem, someone will buy him for 30-40 in a year or two time.

Plus who dya want coming in for him? Bolasie? Nah you’re alright.

I want to see Lookman and Richarlison off Tosun at home. Swapping around and switching places, cutting in and cutting out, pinging shots and dominating full backs and centrebacks.
