If he's healthy (big if I know) he's literally better than Shaqiri so if Shaq is at our level, then Adam is if he's healthy.
IMO he isn’t. Shaq was playing consistently well and making a really good impact. He obviously dropped out the team for a while but then when he played he was still getting assists and creating really good chances. I think Lallana has had about 2 good games in the last 3 years. The impact Shaq has had has been far greater than Lallana and his 100 cruyf turns a game that get him and us nowhere.
I really don’t see the point in keeping him when he’s only going to make a handful of appearances at best and the chances are, he’s not going to deliver in any of them. He’s been sent off for fighting nippers more times than he’s found the net in the last 2-3 years.
I’d much rather we used the time we will spend on him put towards someone like Brewster or Jones.
I think a move back to Saints or someone of that level is what he needs, somewhere he can still be an important player but with us, he’s simply not going to play so it makes no sense to keep him and then lose him for nothing because I think him getting a new contract would be as much of a shock as Leicester winning the league.
He’s been here for 5 seasons now and honestly, he’s only played well for about 6 months and that was when Klopp first came in. He’s done very little else to suggest he can cut it now. I think the injuries he has had has put him a good 2 years behind where the club is.
