Not look to spend big money on someone who plays in his position?

(This argument is obviously dependent on the order of events, like.)

Thatís normal at any decent club though.

If he thinks heís better off at Leipzig thatís fine, but heís not leaving an awful position here for someone with his caree to date.

I donít blame him really but itís a shame. Will be lauded by the press for making a brave move abroad and have a feeling it will work out well for him.

Been rumours heís struggled to settle in Liverpool and that he club set him up in a hotel in town on his bill and heís been very lonely and not into it. Hope we learn from this to invest in the process of helping players settle into the club, city and culture.

Sure I read somewhere that we were actually really good at that stuff.

Maybe was only for foreign players though?

So does Lookman though.

If Everton aren't offered a fee with which we he can be adequately replaced, he shouldn't be sold.

If Brands and Silva think they can? Crack on then. But swapping Lookman for Richarlison, and paying an extra £20m for the privilege, is not what we should be looking to do.

Unless we think Richarlison is twice as likely to make it to the top ;)

It shouldn't be either/or.  I want them BOTH starting, unless we are getting big money from Lookman that we are putting immediately into a Batshuayi (or similar CF).  Move Walcott to the middle, I am nonplussed with Tosun.

Leipzig made the Europa semis, and they are desperate to have him there.  Hardly some minor footy outpost, certainly better calibre than Watford.

Unfortunately one wants to be here, the other doesnít.

Would assume heís bound to be on the bench as none of the 4 new signings will be involved.

If heís not, then itís because heís not trying in training.

So Lookman doesnít make the bench and looks to be pushing for a move and Jagielka throws the game for us. How quickly things can change. Hopefully Mina is ready to step in next week.

?

If Lookman isnít making the bench itís his own fault.

Canít understand how lenient some people are with him given that he seemingly doesnít want to be here.

I've never known someone to contribute so little yet generate so much support.

I can absolutely see from a personal point of view why he went to Leipzig.

But if it had been under a manager that people liked, Lookman would be being booted out the door by most for not complying with club wishes.

? At what point did I say itís not his fault?

You didnít.

But it just seemed odd to mention that he didnít make it and link it to someone costing the game.

Sorry if misinterpreted.

Iím pretty sure everyone would rather he stayed and did well here.

The only reason anyone might have mentioned losing patience or saying itíd be time to step up to the plate etc is because heís seemingly set on going to Leipzig.

Thatís fine from his point of view theyíre a decent club/ team and he seemingly will get more games there than here.

But itís not good from our point of view and thatís his choice.

Think the fact we brought on niasse and DCL over him spoke volumes though.

Iíd still say heís off on deadline day.



Think in this instance it was that we were winning so wanted hold up play as part of the options.

If he was being fully shunned, think heíd just have picked Dowell ahead of him?
