Please correct/verify if I am using this sentence grammatically wrong.
I wrote an email to all team members. The conclusion of the email ended with a command to tell everyone to win:
"Lets win all games this week."
Because there is a hidden subject "everyone", the sentence is correct:
"[Everyone] Lets win two games this week."
A good friend told me the sentence should be "Let's win all games this week." I understand her point
let's is a contraction of
let us. Thus, the sentence is "Let us win all games this week."
Here are my questions:
- Is there anything wrong with a sentence, "Lets win all games this week."?
I found many criticisms using "lets" on the web.
- If question 1 is correct, which is more appropriated to use in the context above?
The way I understand these two sentences are different.

"Let's do something"
The two words imply different things. "lets" is a word meaning someone allows you to do something on a regular basis.
"Let's" shows you suggesting something.
