URZZZZNewCorkSethURZZZZ Just to cheer everyone up around Christmas, Aluko was part of the Christmas squad photo, available to play from Fulham (A) onwards
I still think he can offer us something but I’d prefer to give Olise a shot
Hold up. What can he offer? I would obviously prefer Olise to be given a shot too but I cant think of a reason to integrate Aluko back in.
We have a plethora of players like him but better.
He can be cover for Swift and Ejaria in case they get injured again, you can see how badly we struggled without those two
Remember he played well for a few games in a more central role under Gomes
But he doesnt offer half the creativity of either. It's like having all the disadvantages of Swift and Ejaria without the advantages. May as well not play anyone. Genuinely think Barrett offers more, out of position, as a CM than Aluko does.
And, as we all agree, Olise should be nailed on for that role. Aluko just blocks a promising players route to more first team action. He couldn't be coming back at a worse time.
