I hate this viewpoint. So arrogant, and ignorant.   

I donít think it was meant seriously.

Thanks. Hardly taken offence though, it's just not a very nice thing to say really, is it? Fair enough if it was meant as a joke. It's reflective of plenty I've read on here that isn't.

We ALL had a bad experience under Koeman/Allardyce (and we didn't get the luxury of going out on loan when Fat Boy was in charge), but none of us even thought for one second about leaving the club.

Neither do any of us get paid thousands each week to be part of it in some way.

He should thank his lucky fucking stars he has some semblance of a choice, because none of us poor bastards here do!

Gold.

I agree with most of that but that's not really the same. Of course we need to keep bringing on young players whether that's through our academy or going down the leagues and getting other young players with potential but that's just the cycle of any team sport. As an individual though Lookman doesn't need replaced as there's nothing there to replace.
Yeah, we might be arguing about replacing from two different sides here. It's certainly not a Lukaku situation, where we've suddenly got to find 25 goals+assists a season.

I do firmly belive that his potential needs to be replaced though. We don't really have anyone in the academy with that kind of buzz around them right now either, so it's going to involve spending £20m+ (e.g. the Maddison and Torreira fees) on someone who's played plenty of games at a decent level.

If we've ultimately ended up spending money to swap Richarlison (whom I'm very happy with, don't get me wrong) for Lookman, the summer ends up looking worse and less intelligent for me. That's why I'm arguing for us holding out for more money because it's the market that we, as a Premier League club, have to operate in that should be important to us.

The only person who could possibly take offence out of that is Sam Allardyce when I called him Fat Boy, but after the 6 months of shit he gave us, I don't really give a fuck.

Nah, it was more the attitude displayed to our player. I know it's tongue in cheek, but I think others do actually harbour this ill feeling toward him. I hate seeing players seen only as commodities.

If he doesn't want to play for us, then people are of course going to be pissed. All indications appear that he doesn't want to play for us. He's under contract and if he wants to leave, he should be the one to forfeit any financial benefits that contract may include as he is technically breaking it by not having the right attitude to play.

If he wants out, then hand in a transfer request. It's that simple.

It's not personal, it's business.

At this stage, we don't sell our best players. We don't need the money, but we do need a squad that is capable of competing against the best. Lookman is young and will get chances to prove himself in the Prem. The club comes first.

Again, I back Marco's judgment about whether to include or exclude at this point in time. He still looks like a fourteen-year-old, but he had better not act like one. - I think he will come good and show his worth if he stays.

And I haven't questioned that. I just hate the "fuck you" attitude.

There's nothing actually of any substance to talk about is there. Just going round and round the houses in this thread.
