Regarding the fume about lookman potentially going out on loan I don't understand why everyone is fuming! In the games he's played he's got 3 goals, one of them on his debut and two against Limassol, when he comes on he looks upfront and scares opposition but he's also not got a great end product, that will be the reasoning he's going out on loan to improve on this, he's better out on loan rather than a sub appearance every other game.

What annoys people is the likes of Schneiderlin, Williams, Martina and even Rooney and Siguurdson together, The first three hopelessly out of form with no sign of improvement and the latter two while talented patently cannot occupy the same space. Lookman offers more productivity than Schneiderlin, Williams and Martina combined so is shipped out on loan, add to him Klassen, Sandro and Vladic given no chance and it is all rather perplexing. If it is so obvious we cannot improve on mid table and are fairly certain of staying up why not change things and give the new recruits a chance. Oh and add Keane to the latter.

Would anyone want to lose Niasse in January? I wouldnt, because he comes off the bench, gives his all and changes games. Exactly the same reason we need to keep Lookman. If he'd been awful when he come on then yeah, let him go, but for me, he has been pretty good off the bench.

As regards Lookman the guy has had 1 league start and 5 off the bench and 4 cup starts and another 5 off the bench. In Cyprus he scored twice in a team that was made up of players not playing in the derby but having passports and being able to walk. He scores 2. One league start and about 17 mins 40 seconds in total off the bench. In that time he looks quick, skilful and direct. He must have wondered why he didn't get a chance in a tesm yhat could barely kick the skin off a rice pudding. He now finds himself down the pecking order from Bolassie, who has only been off crutches for about 10 days and Walcott who has spent a decade at Arsenal not delivering on his promise. I think that if I were Lookman I would be talking to Oumar about playing through rejection.

Lookman is not getting enough game time, I believe they are only looking at a short loan to give him this.

26 Jan 2018 17:03:58
What is your basis for that belief?

26 Jan 2018 19:41:11
Don't loan him and play him, simple, that gives him game time, either use him as a weapon off the bench or as a starter to run at defenders, we constantly pick the ball up and look backwards and sideways because there is no movement in front or on the channels, pace scares fullbacks and has them defending deeper, for all this 'oh Sam is ahead of his time with analysis' he has failed to analyze and utilise the raw pace at his disposal, add to this the fascination of playing central attacking midfielders on the left and making them look bad because of what's behind them (Sigs and vlasic) and I really don't see him as the answer.
The excuse of having inherited Koemans squad wears thin with me, he has natural pacey wingers, yet doesn't use them, he now has an extra striker so can go 2 up top, yet persists with 2 non holding, non protecting, non forward moving midfielders.
Lookman should start ahead of Bolasie IMO, if your good enough your old enough, rant over.

vlasic had a chance the other week and was taken off as he was woeful, sandro got a chance the other week off the bench and was woeful, he didn't even try, if a player isn't getting a chance there is reasons behind the scenes but when they do get an opertunity there not even showing willing then what's the point just get rid, over next two windows i want these players gone:

this window or summer

loan this window
tarashaj (prem team)

big clear out and bring in 3/ 4 players that are first team quality who are able to change a game.

The Lookman situation has driven me crazy this season. He hasn't been given game time.

Sam also has it wrong with his statement you have one game to earn your place. It takes a consistent team to gel as long as there is effort. After the game you work on areas that need improving. Eventually you build a spirit and an understanding between you all.

That is the problem we have now. A bunch of quality players but individuals instead of a team.
