Lookman to stay at Everton according to SSN, let's hope he takes his chance some talent hidden in there somewhere.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure he will get much of a chance.}

Ed002. Do you think it was more about RB not meeting the price tag or Silva not wanting to sell. It’s just that we have cover on the left and in the middle. We’re not in Europe so it looks a little puzzling to me.

{Ed002's Note - Lookman wants to leave and RBL want to buy him. I don’t think the money has been the issue, it seems to be no more than the club trying to persuade him that he is part of the plans and blocking any move. It is not the ideal situation.}

Oh well with Bernard injured, Bolasie and Vlasic gone and Richarlison suspended, the guy will have to knuckle down and take his chance.

Silva wants the player, he cannot be blamed for the past managers who overlooked the guy, or the dire football that was not suited to Lookmans style of play.

Silvas brand of football is right up Lookman street, this could be the opportunity Lookman has been waiting for.

If he is still unhappy come January then there’s the option to move then, for now though, with players missing, he has a great chance to force Silvas hand, and make himself undroppable.

Big thumbs up to Silva for sticking to his guns and not letting player power over rule what he is building at Everton.

Ok thanks Ed.

I'm not sure Silvas style suits him. Yes Silva likes players to attack with pace which Lookman does but does he press? Or is he willing to track back and put a shift in?
The jury is out me thinks.
Lookman is a luxury player and you can't have too many of them in the squad.

I have posted on Management issues above so will not go on about it. Suffice to say if Lookman, representative or other had come to me (or relevant) and categorically stated they do not wish to be where they are, then it is obviously in the best interests of all concerned to reach an agreement. We have no idea what has actually gone on between Silva, Brands, Lookman and other players, but I would say witness the outgoings. I like what we have achieved in such a short timescale but my main doubt is Silva's commitment, History and CV do not bode well.
