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.
Un.. believable.
I watched the Wycombe game when Oduwa came on late and he was unremarkable. Shot on target and got fouled a couple of times.

Ye but the rest of the games he has played he has been their most outstanding player. They need to start him. He had on off game the one saw barely got a proper look in with 15mins. Thought he did as good as he could.

Was that the first opportunity you had to see him play?

That I noticed him, yep. He is quite a big lad?

I have seen about half a dozen yoof games this season. I am pretty sure Oduwa was involved in 1 or 2 but I don't remember him. But maybe he did not play in any!
That makes sense. Off by heart I know he didn't play a lot first half of the season. Tbh the few games I have seen on TV or streams I don't remember or think he played. Games I'm thinking of are Chelsea, Southampton, Norwich, Man Utd and I know he didn't play in those. You would definitely have noticed him if he played.

Ugh. He really should still be with Spurs maybe looking to get some minutes amid the mire that is our winger/attacking mid situation.

Seemed a strange loan at the time. The manager is under pressure now with their recent form and seems to not fancy playing a younger player.

Well I hope thats all it is as I have high hopes for him but must admit its been over a year since I've seen him play so hope he hasnt regressed

Not even on the bench today.
Ridiculous. He went form being their best most exciting player. Everyone asking him to start, got a small amount of time when on Sky, didn't do too well to no more game time. And they have been losing. What is the point

Clutching at straws here but at least if he is with us not getting as much game time as he thinks he should get, he will know the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

i understand but Oduwa is not ready for premier league football
And understandably so, but at this point I'd see no harm in giving him the minutes. We're so unbalanced as is in the attacking positions, I suspect a few cameos would hardly be of any tangible detriment anyway.
