Lucas

I thought he was excellent today.

 

Some great long range and one touch passing, was breaking forward a lot and was getting his foot in as well.

 

He seemed to have a lot more confidence about him today and he was a contender for MOTM.

 

Very pleased.

I haven't been impressed with him at all this season. So weak on the ball.

 

But hoping he proves me wrong next season, with his first season under his belt.

 

Don't remember him wasting too many balls today, and for once he actually didn't tire towards the end

I think Lucas has done perfectly well this season as well.

 

Some people are just too impatient to appreciate that he's a young man who has moved to a new continent to play for a new club in a completely different footballing culture.

 

Not everyone can have the sort of immediate impact that Torres has had.

Didn't see this thread - just put my thoughts in MOTM thread. I like Lucas a lot as he does all the basics well or very well.

 

For me, playing the system we have been, I think he and Masch are a better pair than Masch and Lucas in most games.

I would disagree with that - I think the basics let him down. He has an ability to hit long passes, burst forward, tackle back but lets himself down with some poor passing.

 

I think he also hits good short passes under pressure, quite often short passes that start attacks or change the attack by finding a man in space.

 

I think he is seriously under-rated on here. Partly becuase he is compared all the time to Alonso (often because they are competing for place, albeit they play it differently) who IMO is rather over-rated (at least for the last two seasons) on here.

I'm not a fan of his, I really can see him succeeding in the premier league

 

I'm also not sure what type of midfielder he is suppose to be??

 

He's spent the whole of the season running away from the ball or getting caught in possession..far too lightweight and slow for the premier league, He only looks decent when he's got 10yards of space to pick a pass. I really can't think of a game this season where he has made a big impact in. Lucas for me is just the wrong type of player for this league.

he was poor in the first half but got better in the second which seems to be a recurring theme with him. hopefully it means he's going to be more consistent with time and experience and be the second half player all the time.

I think Lucas has been fine all season to be honest, been quite baffled by some of the stick he gets.

 

He doesn't score 25 yarders or hit a dolzen 50 yard passes a game. Therefor he is s*** ;)

 

Hardly had a run in the side, completely different continent to acclimatise to etc

 

I seriously think we could sell Alonso, use the money to buy the creative forward we're crying out for and not miss a step with Gerrard, Masch, Lucas, Plessis and another back-up player to choose from for the central midfield positions.

Exchange Xabi with Messi and get guthre back to cover the midfield
