Sure, but Lingard is more “proven” in the league, well at least after he has left us anyway. Maybe once he return he will be shite again.

I don’t know what’s the point of spending big and buying VDB at all. He has offered nothing more than Lingard/Pereira has for us. But we wasted 40m, he is also on higher wages (reportedly 170k). Lingard is on 75k and pereira is on 35-50k I guess.

Imagine we didn’t spend on VDB, saved up 40m and adding more funds to buy Grealish next summer.
I agree that it’s weird we bought VDB when Ole seems reluctant to use him. I do feel there is a good player in there, though.

Don't want to get too much into the Lingard - DvB discussion which has developped here, but I actually think those two could have a good understanding if played together on a regular basis.

Both not really players for Ole who looks for different attributes.
