He means that it wasnít a good idea to loan him to a decent team.
If Lookman had gone to derby itís very unlikely that heíd be angling for a move there this summer.
I said this at the time that Lookman insisting on a move there was being selfish - understandable as itís a good place to play - but it was done with not being here in mind.
A symptom of how miserable most of the last few years have been is that nearly everyone is blaming all parties bar the player, whereas normally itís the other way round.
What was stupid was loaning him out at all. Not loaning him to Leipzig. If we had kept and played him last season, then he would not be looking to leave now. And I seriously doubt that sending him to Derby would have improved the situation. No way that Lookman would have been happy going there -- he knew he was above that level, which he certainly proved at RB Leipzig.
Let's stop putting the fucking blame on Lookman, when he was just trying to make the best out of a shitty situation that was not of his own creation. It's seriously ridiculous. The blame rests, rather, with Allardyce, Walsh, and the rest of management. And, similarly, it will be management's fault this summer -- not Lookman's -- if we end up selling him when we don't need to.
People are acting like Lookman has kicked up some big, public fuss in the media, which is simply not the case. He has been professional about this whole situation from the get go -- erring his (exceedingly reasonable) concerns in private, as professionals should. It's Allardyce and Leipzig's management that have made shit public.
