Just seen Lookman in training on Everton's Instagram. Guess he's not on strike, or has downed tools.

Tap on the photo and see.

You're assuming I'm referring to something different I think. This is a video, taken today. It's of Zouma in training. Lookman is in the background towards the end.

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.

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.

No way. Young players who are potentially very, very good definitely need to be replaced.

You may not need to replace their performance in the immediate term. We're well stocked with Richarlison, Lookman and Onyekuru all playing down the left too, so you might not need to spend that money in the same position either.

But we do need to replace that potential *somewhere* and that does cost a pretty penny. Long term we need to be maintaining/increasing our number of under 23 players, not reducing it, and that will involve spending plenty of money. It's short-sighted not to.

Yes, selling short is always selling short.  And if Lookman is someone who is currently in Silva's medium and long-term plans, then yes, he needs replacing.  Players get injured.  Players improve to the point they force transfers.  Depth and youth are essential.  If you have someone like Lookman who you believe will be a good, attacking player, you don't give him away easily because he pisses off a handful of fans or because he really wants to go and the Germans claim poverty.

And I will keep accepting Gash's tools every day forever for saying so (without reciprocating), it seems.  No hard feelings.  :D

Some spread too, bascially a foot in old money between Bernard and Mina. Could bring a whole new dimension to "got him in his pocket"...

Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.

Iím 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 doesnít really support your original claim,
or am I just assuming that ?
