I’ll have you a bet that lookman posts better numbers than Richarlison next season (if he moves)

I think it just means we haven’t made any real progress. We needed both not to switch 1 for the other and at great cost to us

Two players operating in different leagues with varying opposition, not really a fair comparison.

I agree it would have been ideal to keep him but he doesn't want to be here apparently. In which case you make the best of a bad situation and move on. Richarlison looks at the level to be a starter and deliver every week, Lookman if he stayed wouldn't have been. I think we've traded up, all things considered.

Lookman is an Everton player until the club say he isn't. The last 4 or 5 pages on here are bordering on mass hysteria. Two planes on an instagram post. lolol

Hard to see how selling our best prospect for relative buttons is a positive to be honest. £20m buys you an average PL player these days. This lad has got all the tools to be very, very good and is still only 20 years old. Selling now would be madness from a football and business perspective.


He also may have the attitude to end up doing fuck all with his career.

I don't deny he has potential (and I'd like him to stay) but if he has the massive potential that is being suggested on here where are 'big' clubs in the queue?
We've seen a few promising cameos on the pitch, Sam and Silva didn't /don't want him to go but I do think the 'potential' whilst promising needs to be kept in proportion.
Plus the part we have no idea of - his wants and ways of dealing with it. I do suspect there is a problem there and in the end talent with a bad attitude can cause more problems than it solves.
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

Who is being hysterical? People just don't want to see our best prospects leave the club for what will likely be a relatively small fee.

As far as the Instagram post is concerned, it's just something that would suggest he's on the move. He may or may not be, but it's more reliable than most of the links that get posted to nonsense transfer rumours.

Bought for 7.5, sold for 20 after 15 games, decent business

He Obviously has talent so its a shame but he also pretty obviously wants out
Simply simply lovely

Based on what exactly? As far as I'm concerned, he challenged himself in going to a very good team in one of the best leagues in the world and by all accounts did quite well. Nothing to suggest he hasn't got the attitude to make it as a very good player.

Ok. I will start to put less milk in my Coffee from now on. And wait for some tangible news. ;)

£20m's not a bad fee for him, people making out we're selling him for less than we paid. Even with inflated prices, outside of the Premier League and the European super rich, clubs aren't paying massive fees for players so quoting prices paid between English clubs a fairly irrelevant, especially for a player with so little appearances. He's 20 years old, started 6 games for us and made 12 substitute appearances in all competitions, doubling our money if he doesn't want to be here is perfectly acceptable. It's probably the same people who questioned the fee when we bought him. Even Leipzig appear to have a figure in mind and it's not near £20m never mind way over it. 

We've far more to worry about than whether Ademola Lookman want's to be here or how much we get for him, it'll get to the stage it becomes an unnecessary distraction.

It's of absolutely no consequence what he does in Germany, though, is it?

To be fair, if this forum was all about tangible news then 90% of posts would have to be removed.

Well I'm not sure if your post would make the 10% or not like. Thanks for pointing that out. That's a lot more useful to me than MOLa posting a couple of planes on his insta. :)

Fees inside the Premier League absolutely are relevant because, as a Premier League club, we have to pay inflated fees.

The fees we demand in return should really reflect that for players we want to keep.

But teams outside of the Premier League, bar a handful, can't pay those fees. We have to be realistic when faced with situations that aren't ideal.
