On Lucas, I’m pleased in all honesty. Think he’d work better under an organised Spanish approach and certainly offers more goal threat than either Dan/Alex. Tides us over till next summer after Emery works out what he ideally wants in this team.
People saying that they’d welcome him back as he’s a better option than Iwobi or Welbeck Who both start games for us regularly, how many games do we go into without one of them starting ? So I assume by posters wanting Perez back due to him being superior, they want him as a starter.
Yeah and he may well be better, I just think it’s a sad state of affairs if our wing options are these. When you take into account the likes of Gazidis saying We’d be competeting with the top clubs in Europe by now.
Since January it seems like our first choice players for the left are Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang (though maybe Auba isn’t under Emery), I can’t see the problem with Perez and Iwobi being third and fourth choice there, that seems like decent depth to me.
I think your assumption that anyone wants him as a starter is misguided, I think you’ve made a leap to reach that conclusion tbh.
