They've lost 5 out of 6 and Oduwa has been the most dangerous player in almost all of them... Manager is a twat. At

Warming up apparantly. Fans on twitter have been begging for him all game.
They always do, as soon as they see the teamsheet. They complain when he doesn't start now

Thought he did ok. Took up a position out wide on the right. Whipped in a couple of dangerous low crosses. He didn't really have time to do much.

A 15 minute subs appearance.

Not sensible given Luton's current form, you'd expect their manager to try a few other attacking options such as Oduwa

Only caught the last 10 min but from what i saw he was playing real wide I know they started off playing 352 not sure if they changed that 2nd half.

In fairness they actually looked ok in attack without him. It was the midfield and defence that looked poor. I can see why he doesn't get in the team.

Judging by Twitter, you know that bastion of good will and measured opinion, Luton fans really don't rate him that highly after his initial short bright cameo for them.

I wouldn't say that. Since he has joined they have begged him to start everyone singing his praises etc. we all know how fickle football fans are, and clearly he didn't have a great 15 mins as he struggled to find his feet so the opinions will suddenly swing. But you can still read some sensible ones who have seen him saying he didn't get enough time and needs to start games.

Really not fair to judge him on that

This McNulty looks like a Power League footballer
I dont know what it is, but i have a special place in my heart for heavier footballers. They make the game so much more fun. Big fan of him and Akinfenwa. They're like offensive linemen playing football and it warms my heart. Bless them.

Even though he's not getting much game time I think it's a good experience for him, being in and around a match day squad for competitive games has to be better than "u" football.

Yes and no, he should of gone to a league 1 club imo

League 2 loans carry far too much risk and don't help alot of the time imo

The idea of him gaining experience by sitting on the bench is wrong as well. If he had played a lot of youth football then I agree but he was injured for a long time. He needs minutes to get back in to the groove rather sitting on the bench

Also he could of featured nearer the end of the season with us having nothing to play for

Irt to your last paragraph hopefully he still can make an appearance or 2 if Luton aren't in the playoffs, doubt he will though tbh

Oduwa on the bench. Luton blow a 2-0 halftime lead to lose 3-2 to Exeter at 90+5.

Luton have lost SEVEN in a row now, and nine out of ten, tumbling from automatic promotion down to 3 points off the playoffs. And I hate to say it but when they insist on not playing Oduwa I kind of root for them to lose.
