To my mind Luka is increasingly a liability to the team and adds little or nothing to our play

Last night his free kicks were poor and he continues to pick the wrong pass and give the ball away. He remains one of our set piece takers and we have not scored from a set piece.

Macca is now our midfield General. He leads from the front and has take up that role.

So far not sure what Will Hughes has done but he cannot get a sniff. Maybe time he is given a shout

I think that Luka does more than we think although I agree that some of his dead ball work requires upgrading!
Jmac is certainly exceeding my expectations at the moment but I suspect he may get a rest on Saturday and that Hughes will start.
We have the luxury of having talent on the bench - something we have not often been used to!

To be fair to Luka he played well in recent games but did have a mare last night. As for JMac, lucky to stay on the pitch last night and not one of his better performances IMO.

I agree time to see what Hughes can bring to the party.

Why is he back on corners when we know hes poor. Gallagher was brilliant on these pre Luka return

Zzzzzz another anti-Luka thread. Just what we need.

He wasn't great last night. Sure. But he was part of a midfield that absolutely bossed Arsenal. So he can't have been that bad.

Classic fickle fans. We see one corner that didn't make it past first man and suddenly had had a terrible game, no matter what he does. A couple of games ago he was arguably MOTM.

Now, now sprites, you were vindicated last night(gmt) over Tekkers scoring, enjoy the warm glow of 'told you so' & 'I knew he would'. Dont push ya luck(yet)

 


Is now OFFICIALLY retired.

His passing and ball possession are poor. However, prior to last night he has been better.

he was not very visible last night. Always seemed to not get near the ball.

It's the retention of set piece duties that I find baffling, he is really poor at them!

Not understand why Gallagher was taken off the job when Luka returned.

Because Gallagher is more of a threat at the edge of the area for loose balls, as his shot at the end of the first half showed.

Whilst he has improved on last season's form, he's still one of our weak links - poor distribution, doesn't win it back very often and the set pieces are absolutely infuriating - I'm not sure exactly what he brings to the team anymore.

Would like to see us try McCarthur in the deeper role with CG and Hughes in front - McCarthur surely can't keep up the intensity of his current role for a full season.
