There doesn't need to be pressure on the lad. "Time to step up" is a ridiculous argument from you both. He's a young player that needs nurturing in order that he reaches his potential. Proper 'bloke down the pub' shout the whole "time to perform" bollocks.

The "he thinks he's better than he is" shouts are also just as daft.
So you disagree with Silva as well then? He said pretty much what I’m saying in the article I posted. The onus is now on Lookman to finally perform for us.

Really not sure what’s got your knickers in a twist of late. You’re being very defensive and argumentative in this thread and another thread too.

Cant believe people still think he should have gone to Derby.

Who said that?

So what if he would have got more minutes at Derby, he did well at Leipzig and scored goals in front of big crowds, training with top players day in day out. He proved himself at a top club and is seen as one of the best players for his age in the country. Good for him for having the confidence to go to Germany and challenge himself more than he would have to do at Derby County.

And fair dos for wanting to have a go at a foreign league. Takes a lot of courage to move country at that age.

He's with us though, and if he wants to be successful, it's in his hands and it's on him to do it. He has a lot of quality ahead of him which will hopefully push him to be better. Otherwise he'll find himself with not a lot of game time.

So yeah, the pressure and onus is on him. Is he up to the challenge?

The pressure isn't on him. Jamo's right. He needs to be nurtured and supported to play his best football, gain some confidence and to build a connection with the club.

The fans gave him a good reception last week so hopefully that's a good step in the right direction.

Silva couldn't be any clearer in his desire to keep him and work with him, which tells me he thinks he could be a very good player.

He wants games, which is one reason he wants to go back to Leipzig. That's not happening. If he wants games with us, the pressure is on him to be good enough to get those games. Otherwise his career will continue as it has the past couple of years.

As Silva says, the onus is on him.

It wouldn't surprise me if he did. Given the extra competition, it's a lot harder for him now compared to simply having Bolasie to compete with.

Surely there’s no chance he leaves in this window now. Silva would look a bit daft if he did (unless lookman forced his way out)

He doesn’t want to be here.

He’ll try and force through a move and we’ll probably just end up accepting a big of 25mil.

Any money he’s not in the squad again today.

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

If he’s not, then it’s because he’s not trying in training.

I'd be surprised if he wasn't on the bench.

If he isn't given the lack of depth right now, it would be very telling.

I think he'll probably go out on loan again.
