Maybe he can get a better view sitting in a different Stadium
Well that would be a step up, he seems like he's on a different planet
Thread started on FriendsofFulham:
Started by some guy called 'Luffy86'. This some kind of joke?
Saw after Rodallega scored and the players were all celebrating with each other Lewis ran straight into the crowd, got booked too. Seems like they've really taken to him there but it's no surprise that he's doing quite well there. Just a big shame that we loaned him out in the first place as I'd have loved to see him given a chance in the same team as Eriksen.
Loaning holtby...a DTS masterstroke.
He will come back a better player for it.
Almost better out of this mess at Spurs right now getting used to the EPL week in and week out.
Have no doubt he will be more than useful for us next season.
Lol, he thinkgs the passion is for Fulham.. He just has a passion for the game
Nah, Holtby's a Spurs boy...
This is what a Fulham fan wrote on a blog:
"The 23-year-old’s work rate and tenacity is fantastic to see, but what really sets him apart from the pack is his creativity and instinctive quality that can turn a stagnant midfield battle into a possible attack with a single touch of the ball.
Unlike much of Fulham’s possession play this year, which has been sideways and back to the keeper at every moment of danger, Holtby adds a fluid, attacking dimension that encourages everyone to get the ball forward.
Pulling the strings and getting involved, Holtby is so unlike Bryan Ruiz and Dimitar Berbatov (the latter more so), who showed moments of class, as he is in no way arrogant.
Instead of throwing his arms around like a petulant and spoilt child, Holtby pulls his sleeves up and works hard for the team tracking back, going forward and rallying the fans."
I still can't believe we let him go out on loan. He is exactly what we have been missing and he and Eriksen could be working up a storm.
Aside from the skill he possesses, his attitude alone should get him recalled - if there's one thing we've needed frequently this season it's someone who doesn't let their head drop and works hard to the final whistle.
Agreed. I also think he's benefiting at the moment from the typical syndrome of looking better when you are out of the side. Let's be honest he wasn't doing too much for us apart from against weaker el opposition and was a little like a headless chicken at times, perhaps trying too hard as he wasn't starting every game & he needs some proper coaching. No offence to them but the Fulham fans would also probably rate siggy or pienar and they loved danny murphy and Clint D. Success at spurs is much harder to achieve.
The boy clearly has talent though and will come back next season a better player.
Trying too hard to cement a position in a weird team with us.
With Fulham he just slots in and can kinda play a little more "normally". Yes still pressure and different pressures with relegation threat etc, but all great experience.
I think loaning him out was the best thing for him and eventually us.
I doubt we can recall him now.
Speak for yourself. I can recall him easily. He's a German lad with blond hair, a tidy passer with a penchant for sending inappropriate photos to air hostesses.
If only bringing him back from Fulham were so easy...
Didn't he have more assists than anyone else in the side at the time when he left us?
I would be surprised if this was true in the league (and it wouldn't say much for the rest if so). He really wasn't impressing in the league at all - the fans liked him and wanted him to suceed as he's a trier and he looked good in the EL games & Germany u21's.
What position is he playing for Fulham? That's another problem with us, we have so many similar players to fit in it wasn't even clear if he is a CM, no 10 or inside left? Again, this wont have helped him so going out on loan was probably best. He's also on big wages and Tim wasn't playing him.
No one was impressing in the league to be fair, more to do with the fact that we had an unsettled squad and the system that the players were playing in didn't suit them at all.
Oh I completely agree, just saying that it was probably best for him to get regular games elsewhere and save us some money on the wage bill etc - he can then come back next year and we can assess him better under a new manager/system.
