Lucas Moura

needs to be an automatic starter for most of our games now. another class goal yesterday. Not sure what the man has to do to get a consistent run of starts, and not be the guy to be subbed off all the time.

i find myself questioning poch a lot at the moment, which i really don't like, but his management of Moura, in my opinion is another question mark against him. obviously i only see what the rest of you see, and don't know what goes on behind the scenes.

thoughts?

It did my head in last season when everyone had Dele in their CL Final eleven.

I know at won't be popular but I would of been quite happy if he had started instead of Son. He is a very hot and cold player and at the end of last season he wasn't playing well.

Either way Moura should have been the first name on the teamsheet, we might not have played any better but it couldn't of been any worse. We'll never know?

As I've said on many occasions since the cl final if Poch left (under any circumstances) I wouldn't be crying in my beer about it.

Son is more hot than cold though, and is easily part of our best eleven. I don't really buy this hot and cold malarkey anyway, there was one time he was World Class and then went on a poor streak agreed, but now it seems like he can play four worldies, have two average games and then everyone says he's in a cold spell playing like a League One player.

Son is a cracking player but for some reason (who can explain these things) his peaks and troughs are extreme.

Dele is a shadow of the player he was 2/3 season ago, he seems to have lost his swagger and youthful arrogance.

So once more Lucas Moura is left out and then given 5 mins to save the game at the end.

If I were him I would fack off. We are totally mismanaging the player.

This is why Lucas isn’t a nailed on starter.

He’s a individualist which means if he’s not on it he’s anonymous.

maybe, but the problem is that none of his colleagues are on it either, and he is on it more often than they are

Moura didn't get many real chances to tuck away during the game, but he has done enough with other recent games.

As usual the delivery into the box was facking dreadful. Son's cross probably the only good one I can remember.

But he isn’t that’s the point.

Yes he’ll do something fantastic but individual like his goal in the CL but then you don’t see him again.

He’s just not on the page as anyone around him which takes away from the team play. He had the same problem at PSG.

Bet if we reviewed all his goals they’ll be mostly instinctive solo play than anything team orchestrated.

Agree. I think its the reason only one of Son and Lucas plays and Son has been the better player as a whole.

My criticism though is when Poch has used him wrongly or not at all e.g. open game vs. Arsenal

Boss

Yes he could definitely been used better and I am a fan but can see it’s a difficult situation to try and fit in him.

It’s probably why he was against signing him the summer before we got him.

If I’m not mistaken you’re a Lucas fan though, no?
