TBF the sulky little cunt is about the last player you’d want in a relegation fight.

I wouldn't go quite that far but he does appear to be a miserable git. As a team we would not miss him anytime soon.
We can’t return to normal because the normal that we had was precisely the problem.

None of the other managers publicly slagged him off because he went abroad

Not saying Allardyce is solely to blame, but he did more damage than the rest.

Lookman has everyone's sympathy for what happened under that shitshow of a manager but Silva couldn't have been more praising of the lad when he took over. We rejected a big bid from Leipzig which showed we believed in him and he should have been looking at players like Richarlison, Gomes and Bernard and thinking he'd like to be a part of this but it hasn't happened for him, for whatever reason.

Even though I want him to stay I would be happy with Lookman out and Malcom in like.

Silva said last summer that Lookman was in his plans, that's why we rejected the bids from RB, then quite a few times last season Silva said that he has to improve in training. Probably could of been dealt with better but to me Lookman was given a few chances last season to show what he's made of and didn't take any of them, it was pretty obvious that he didn't want to be here.

Bit sensitive anytime his name is even mentioned you mate.

Don’t think anybody blamed him.

However, I do recall him saying he should go to derby instead of testing himself abroad at RB, to which you agreed. So, he does have to take some of the blame for this one.

He had a great chance to play him every week, but instead chose to loan him out and use bolasie instead.

He’s not my mate and I’m not remotely sensitive about it. It’s plain daft though. A manager who’s no longer at the club (hasn’t been for a year now) disagrees with his choice of loan move (the player still got his way)
He went there and proved himself. You’d hope he’d come back and want to prove himself here too rather than waste a year.
The flip side of this is had he gone to derby maybe his head wouldn’t have been turned. Not massively sensible loaning players to better teams. You risk having their heads turned
Personally I’ve no problem with how he’s been treated or how he’s behaved. The opportunities he has had he hasn’t taken. Maybe he’s not good enough. Maybe it just hasn’t worked out through no fault of anyone’s
I’d love him to stay and find some form  but it’s probably best for everyone he gets a move now.

I wonder if he shouldn’t have been given some support from a sports psychologist ? May have been underlying emotional issues that would account for his apparent sulky demeanour ?

I would have thought that a club like ours with a good reputation on mental health would have been on it if that was the case.

Perhaps it's just how he comes across.

Have to laugh that everyone's still blaming allardyce

When lookman has played he hasn't done enough. Not for managers before allardyce. Not for managers after him. Odd that people seem to think the responsibility lies with just him
It's not just Allardyce fault, think some will blame Walsh too, the way he signed him wasn't right, or something like that!!?

Especially with the difference being reported around £12m.

one of my favourite Everton photos from the last few seasons.





Wish Lookman doesn't go on a perm deal... I fear it will be similar to how Vlasic will turn out (awesome Vlasic article btw)


Kenny wont be here next season... i still would love this  to be the backbone of the team in years to come.

Only wish the best for him. Think he hasn't had a fair shot here in terms of minutes.
Are we there yet?
