Lucas Torreira (11)


#181

Wasnt that much, was something like £25m


#182

I’m more annoyed he hasn’t started over Guendouzi.


#183

The guy’s quality, why should we wait until he settles down, i didn’t see Jorginho or Keita or even Serri settling in.


#184

Oh well, we paid him quite a good amount of money so he should start.


#185

And two of those teams have better midfield options than us and still playing them.

Torrieria should be central to everything we do in the middle of the park, it’s nonsensical that he isn’t playing.


#186

He’s in a totally new country, he’s getting 45 minutes so far per game, I don’t see the point of rushing him in to a new system, new team, until he himself is ready…He is class, he will be awesome, 2 more games for me, then we unleash the real Torreira…


#187

As someone else already pointed out, Jorginho / Seri / Keita are just 3 examples of players who have mysteriously done without this mythical ‘settling in period’ requirement


#188

@JohnnyH, still sure he hasn’t to start?


#189

Not yet, he will now dominate the second half…


#190

How this guy isn’t starting with our central midfield options is baffling.


#191

maybe he is trying to coach the shitness out of the rest of the team but this guy knows what to do and hence giving the other game time to iron out a lot of the mistakes…only reason i can think of even if it is a terrible and stupid reason.


#192

Definitely one the top, top DMs in the league and could potentially become the top DM in the league. The qualities are there.


#193

Yeah should start every cup game at least.

Assisted the winner!


#194

His impact when he came on was clear to see, was everywhere intercepting, winning tackles and winning fouls.

We can’t continue to leave him out and not get punished.


#195

In every game, when he has come on, this season we have looked far more comfortable.
Even if he isn’t fully fit after the World Cup, he is better than all our other options in that position, mentioning no names.


#196

When was the last time our DM disguised his ball like that? Not even Arteta. Probably Song during his odd playmaker run.


#197

#198

Is he fucking off for the international break? Not ideal if so.


#199

This lad MUST start from now on . What a cracking visionary player .


#200

Reading from Emery said, i think he will be first choice within a month. Well, at least i hope so.
