Martinez: Lukaku will catch fire in the New Year

Manager predicts good things for Everton's strikers

"He has started to be fresh now and ready."
Roberto Martinez is confident that Romelu Lukaku will hit his best levels in January, after seeing his early season performances hampered by injury and poor form.

The Belgian striker has four goals in 10 starts so far this season after struggling for full fitness early in the campaign after picking up a niggling toe complaint but his manager believes the fans will see him back to his best in the coming months.

I think Rom is going to hit his best levels in January," he told the Liverpool Echo. "Then I think he's capable of maintaining it until the end of May. I'm happy with his attitude and the way he works. He knows the responsibility he has for us and brings a lot of desire.

He is so unpredictable with his type of play. He can be strong and powerful. He can hold the ball up well. Against Lille he was very sharp and penetrating and his link-up in the final third was really good. He has started to be fresh now and ready.

The manager also expressed his excitement about his other attacking options, reiterating his faith in loan signing Christian Atsu whose involvement has been limited to this point.

Samuel Eto'o will always contribute with his experience and vision every time he's on the pitch, and Steven Naismith hasn't dropped his level. His work-rate is phenomenal and his intelligence allows him to be used in different formations.

We've got good attacking options. I think Christian Atsu will be an important player for us in second half of the season. Kevin Mirallas will be back from injury soon. It's important everyone is ready to help us on the pitch and the attitude has been perfect so far.

Hope so. Played brilliant against Lille then absolutely dire against Sunderland. Pretty much sums him up at present.

You can pretty much guarantee Atsu wonÂ’t be important all season long. Terrible.

Mmmmmm....But unfortunately Roberto the season starts in August and January is still some eight weeks away and our season could be over by then. I tell you what IÂ’ll ask BK if I can pay for my season ticket for this season in January 2015 rather than pay for next seasonÂ’s in March.

Should give Bill plenty of time to save up for a jerry can of petrol and a lighter BOOM BOOM!

No seriously, Rom has had a tough time, I buy into the Ken Buckley theory that thereÂ’s too many instructions from too many teachers, if we play to his natural game the goals will flow again.

We just havenÂ’t got going yet and it is very frustrating.

I find it strange Martinez can say from January until possibly when the season ends Lukaku will be at his best. What if he doesnÂ’t? I just donÂ’t think there is any need to comment on him, IÂ’m sure heÂ’ll deliver once heÂ’s fully fit and that is scoring Â’goalsÂ’.
Paul Andrews
6 Posted 15/11/2014 at 17:46:19
I agree 100 % with Roberto.

The lad has been injured and is still not fully fit. He will take off when fully fit and maintain, or probably better, his scoring record over the last two and a bit seasons.

"He has started to be fresh now and ready."

Can anyone explain what that means?

Trevor Lynes

No mention of Kone at all which is a big surprise. Atsu is a loan player so will have only bit parts and so far has not really impressed much at all. I really thought that he would have been a good acquisition as he has bags of pace and plays direct football for his country.

He seems a bit lacking in confidence and I sometimes wonder if loan players are fully accepted in the dressing room. EtoÂ’o has all the experience in the world so he should be used as a yard stick by every other Everton striker.

I just wonder sometimes what goÂ’s on behind the scenes. Is Kone training with the team? Is Atsu fully integrated?

Peter Murray

Any positive analysis by Roberto seems to trigger off automatically with certain supporters an anti-Kenwright reaction. And by the way, Declan Brown 3, "no seriously..." does not excuse an extremely sick comment.

Roberto is merely sharing his thoughts on the potential progress of Lukaku and Atsu, based on his daily working with them. CanÂ’t that be accepted as it is?

Eric Myles

Strange thing for a manager to say.

Does this mean we wonÂ’t be seeing him play until he can make a meaningful contribution in January?

Frank Crewe
11 Posted 15/11/2014 at 18:56:43
And Kone will be fit as well. ItÂ’s always jam tomorrow with RM.
Colin Glassar

Sometimes Roberto just needs to say, "no comment". I understand what heÂ’s trying to say but sometimes silence is golden.

The Lukaku I want to see more of is the one running onto a ball played ahead of him instead of with his back to goal where his first touch is invariably too heavy and he either loses it or hits it back down field a yard or three.
Patrick Murphy

Peter #9

It wasnÂ’t an anti-Kenwright reaction, it was just a way of pointing out that as supporters we pay miles in advance for our tickets and we expect all of our players to perform to the best of their abilities at all times. We donÂ’t want to be told that our costliest player wonÂ’t perform at his best until early next year.

The reaction to delaying payment until January for our season tickets would be met with disdain by the people running the club so why should we be told by the manager that one of our players has two more months to find his form?

Perhaps you should read the posts more carefully and not be so quick to defend our beloved chairman — especially when he isn’t being criticised.

So much spin, so little substance. Perhaps he could brief us on the form or the rest of the players in January.
Andy Crooks

Why does Roberto just, every now and again, refrain from spouting utterly mindless, pointless nonsense? The players should be ready from day one of the season while Roberto seems to believe that somehow Everton have a joker to play from January, which will sweep us to the Champions League.
Tony Hill
19 Posted 15/11/2014 at 21:28:35
I agree with most of above. Lukaku has been largely awful and there is just no excuse. If he is unfit, donÂ’t play him; how can he get fit if heÂ’s aggravating the problem?

I agree with those who say RM needs to learn to shut up. I am a big supporter but he does himself no favours.

What happened to Traore? I assume we have all given up on Kone.

Robert Duncombe
20 Posted 15/11/2014 at 20:30:59
Brian, it means that he isnÂ’t going to be shit anymore. Only one fella can prove this comment though and it isnÂ’t the one standing on the sidelines waxing lyrical.

21 Posted 15/11/2014 at 22:16:56
IÂ’m a Martinez fan but have to agree, he does spout some shite now and again. WTF canÂ’t he Â’catch fire Â’ now? Why does it have to be in January?

On another note, IÂ’ve been reading on Twitter that Jags limped off injured tonight... weÂ’re down to our bare bones if itÂ’s something serious!

Colin Glassar
22 Posted 15/11/2014 at 22:27:22

Why do people talk like Martinez storms into a room, unannounced, rips his jacket off, rolls his shirt sleeves up, leaps on a tabletop and roars, "LISTEN UP BITCHES! I have something I want to say about Lukaku and all you assembled motherfuckers better make sure you spread the word".

ItÂ’s not like he has some uncontrollable urge to pontificate about players whenever thereÂ’s anyone in earshot, or provide pointless updates to people who arenÂ’t the slightest bit interested in whatÂ’s going on with the Everton squad. Like he rolls straight off Mrs Martinez, stares up at the ceiling and says something like... "Leon Osman really is a little wizard minus the robe and wand. A gargantuan talent trapped in a garden gnomes body. HeÂ’s a phenomenal player, person and... interesting fact... really likes Penguin biscuits".

HeÂ’s not directing the conversation or making a prepared statement. HeÂ’s being asked questions about his playersÂ’ form and fitness. He has to answer, and does so as he sees fit.

To criticise the content is fair enough, but to criticise the man for simply refusing to remain silent during his press duties is just moronic.

How else should he respond?

"Do you believe Romelu Lukaku is anywhere near to reaching top form, Roberto?"

"IÂ’m not answering that."

"Really? Why?"

"DonÂ’t want to."

"Why?"

"CanÂ’t be arsed."

"Come on Roberto. Why would you, as a football manager, refuse to answer a simple, run-of-the-mill question about one of your players? ItÂ’s not exactly a controversial question, and thereÂ’s certainly no intent to somehow try and catch you out."

"Â’Cause youÂ’re taking the piss! YouÂ’ve got eyes. Make your own mind up."

Yeah, that would go down well wouldnÂ’t it?

Funny John, but Fergie did it all the time.
Harold Matthews
25 Posted 15/11/2014 at 22:05:57
With so many injuries to key players we need him to perform to his best right now. Unfortunately, it may take 2 months to get him to lose a hefty lump of surplus weight. The lad is definitely carrying extra and it is slowing him down.
John Daley
26 Posted 15/11/2014 at 22:43:00
Ferguson might have been a tetchy auld git who (in later years) snubbed certain sections of the press Colin, but he always bigged up his players in public and defended them against any criticism, whether warranted or not.
Robert Duncombe
27 Posted 15/11/2014 at 22:50:16
Lukaku should create his own headlines. Of course Bobby can big up his players but canÂ’t he just tell them how wicked he thinks they are? Does he need to do it through the media? Making his expectations public may only add more weight onto LukakuÂ’s shoulders, who is currently struggling with the 㿈 mill price tag.
Bill Gall
28 Posted 15/11/2014 at 23:03:09
The comment of his season being hampered by injury makes me wonder why we brought EtoÂ’o in as he is by far a better player than an injured Lukaku.

Surely for the price you paid you do not play an injured player in case you make the injury more severe when you have an experienced player to step in until the injury is cleared up.

Declan Brown
29 Posted 15/11/2014 at 23:36:00
Peter Murray, explain yourself son.

I thought that was a simple straight forward gag: Martinez says Lukaku will catch fire in January, I make a joke about Kenwright having time to save up a few quid (now that the petrol price is rumoured to be going down and will do in the coming weeks), a deliberate pun on our superb financial position. So, Peter, what were you thinking that actually meant?

Go outside and have a word with yourself and come back in when your brain starts engaging again. It was a joke; nothing more or nothing sinister. Eejit.

Peter Murray
30 Posted 15/11/2014 at 23:17:48
Patrick (#15),

My comments were essentially aimed at the offensive post about BK and the "jerrycan of petrol and a lighter" garbage.

In terms of your post, I can only say that Roberto was talking about players working towards their optimum, one still carrying the after-effects of an injury and the other, as a loan squad player,gradually adjusting to the dual demands of the Premier League and Europe.

You somehow see this in terms of BK and ticket sales and give the game away with your sneering "our beloved chairman".

Perhaps you are the one who should read posts more carefully.

Sam Hoare
31 Posted 16/11/2014 at 00:11:04
And Martinez has also said that Barkley will become best player England has ever had! I think the positivity nodule has gone into overdrive. I am all for breeding confidence but there comes a point where the compliments you give just start losing value if they are sprinkled all the time over everyone.
John Malone
32 Posted 16/11/2014 at 00:15:35
Mirallas playing left wing sliding early balls in front of Lukaku is the key to him scoring goals. Martinez has got to play the right way to see the best of Lukaku otherwise he shouldÂ’ve signed Bony.
Patrick Murphy

Sam,

Your post has elements of Shakespeare and Shelley at their very best and IÂ’m pretty sure that, in the pantheon of fine posts, yours will supersede any post that us mere mortals can even imagine.

When the great book is written, we will look back on this day with fondness, as we count ourselves fortunate to have lived in the shadow of great literature produced by the most exciting talent to have visited these boards.

Are you by any chance thinking of having an "Evening with Sam Hoare" at a well known Liverpool hotel in the coming days/weeks? :-)

John Daley @23 excellent as usual. However, my entire life, year after fucking year, is based on what will happen on the long finger, ie, January. I donÂ’t want Roberto to be doing the same. Actually, I do.

Supporters should support.

Managers should talk to media/fans.

Lukaku has scored more (may be wrong) than Borini, Lambert, Balotelli, Falcao, Welbeck, Dzeko, Sturbridge, Carroll, Benteke, Kone, etc. I know some of them have been injured, but so has Lukaku, yet he has still pulled the jersey on when others mentioned have went on holiday to "recover" and picked up their cheques.

Yeah, he can do better, and will. Our job is to support, his is to score goals. LetÂ’s take care of our job and enable him to get on with his. Use Steven Naismith as an example ffs.

Nice! But some people woukd rather or manager would not give us an insight into team affairs.

Or if heÂ’s compelled to, he should tell us how screwed we are and that none of the players or coaching staff are up to it.

Patrick Murphy
38 Posted 16/11/2014 at 02:21:11
Sam, I’m sorry I wasn’t intending it to be sarcastic – I was attempting to inject a bit of humour and agreeing with your point that over-zealous words lose their impact if they are used too often, but obviously I didn’t get my point across in the correct manner.

As for how the manager speaks about his players and their attributes, nobody is asking for RM to undermine them or to be surly and underhanded... but surely it would be better for all concerned if he kept some stuff in-house and got on with the job of picking the best team available for the next match. After all, that is what matters to most supporters.

Guys

If you donÂ’t wanna hear what Roberto has to say, change the channel, hit the mute button, or choose not to click on the link then read what he has to say then whinge that he has something to say.

IÂ’m glad my missus isnÂ’t as bad as some of you lot.

Patrick Murphy
40 Posted 16/11/2014 at 02:35:56
You know, Christopher, you are so right mate. In fact, if I don’t agree with the headlines, I should just avoid the whole story – that way, I can sail merrily along and have no inkling as to what the Everton FC manager may be thinking or saying.

I can then attend Goodison with little or no idea of what sort of team he is sending out and in what frame of mind. Ignorance is bliss – I should have thought of that years ago and perhaps MK and LL should have thought about it and saved everyone the bother of becoming involved in the whole interactive process...

[Just in case anybody was wandering, this time I am being sarcastic.]

Well, Patrick, I was wandering... around in here. I donÂ’t see any reason for sarcasm. Just be as ChristopherÂ’s wife. DonÂ’t look, wonder or question. Just go along with what the boss says.

Simple.

As part of the broadcast deals, domestic and foreign media get a lot of access to managers, officials and players for interviews. ItÂ’s now part of the job, and thereÂ’s no getting away for it, or the club gets hit with a fine (Man Utd were fined for years over TaggartÂ’s non-appearance on MotD post-match interviews over their pointing out one of his sons mightÂ’ve been a bit corrupt as an agent, but the fines were pin money to them.)

I do think RM talks overly-positive shite, so I tune out. Interestingly IÂ’ve found the interviews heÂ’s given to supporters groups far more insightful (and recommend finding them on SoundCloud or iTunes or wherever they are).

Still it could be worse. A previous incumbent of the Goodison hot seat wouldÂ’ve said words to the effect that Lukaku is the 2nd best striker in Belgium, etc, etc.

So BobbyÂ’s found out that RomÂ’s had BalotelliÂ’s New YearÂ’s party invite. Surely Mario wonÂ’t get mixed up between indoor and outdoor fireworks again. Tell Rom he canÂ’t go if youÂ’re that worried Bobby!

Hindsight exists in everything you do in life, football is the same.

Back in the summer I was pleased Lukaku signed for us, I was concerned that heÂ’d have to produce a great season after costing 㿈 million; so far he hasnÂ’t done it and the more IÂ’m watching football this season IÂ’m wishing we had moved for the cheaper, more mobile and lively looking Danny Welbeck.

Welbeck is doing simple things that seem to be evading Lukaku this season such as for his second goal yesterday, pass the ball, move into space, control the ball and score easily.

As somebody said on another post recently, Lukaku is not easy on the eye, his lack of mobility this season has been rather alarming, every game he looks as though he is running through quick sand or with cement in his boots.

Who knows if he is going to hit the ground running in the New Year, question is why take so long? He should already be used to whatÂ’s required at Everton and how we play.

It seems to me, like with Atsu (who I believe will be on his way back to Chelsea in January, probably to be loaned out elsewhere) that Martinez is merely buying time, excuses for poor form and failure to reach high standards.

We all want Lukaku to be a success, but so far IÂ’m seeing a lot more money than we paid for a similar player in Yakubu a few tears ago but a player not all that different, The Yak was admittedly a striker that didnÂ’t do a lot of running but unlike Lukaku, he was always in the penalty box thus resulting in many goals from that position, poachers goals.

Lukaku at present looks to be out of position constantly (why, Roberto?) and basically like a spare part without any real meaning.

If heÂ’s going to get anywhere near 15 goals this season then he has to be playing in the middle of the pitch, and he needs to find his form there. Otherwise youÂ’re going to be looking in four or five months time as nothing more than an expensive mistake.

Jim you very much outline my views about Lukaku. In the summer I had high hopes and expectations that he was the key component we needed to push us on to the proverbial next level. I have been really disappointed with his overall ability and contribution so far. But still hope he will start firing on all four cylinders sooner rather than later but sadly my expectations arenÂ’t as high as they were at the beginning of the season.

We need a new goalkeeper. Baines & Coleman are best left-back & right-back in World football. Jagielka is back to his best, Stones and Jamie – what more can I say. Besic, best signing of the year, as per Begovic.

Mirallas brilliant, Barkley a superstar in the making. Lukaku with more goals than Messi at his age, so plenty to be optimistic about – just missing a creative world class midfielder... and when Delboy returns, I will be happy.

Martinez is the best advertisement of Everton Football Club as a manager than anyone else we have had for donkeysÂ’ years. He is entertaining and speaks better English than most of the other managers in the Premier League. Ferguson was monosyllabic by comparison.

I hate managers who are aggressive when dealing with the media. Why do they do it? Roberto never rises to any baiting by other managers, he is a class above and obviously shows it. He answers questions without avoiding them and is a breath of fresh air to my mind.

His audiences with the fans are always open and he answers the questions he is asked. Of course he praises his players, so does every other manager. But he never gripes about referees and never brings the club into disrepute by getting involved in touchline fracas.

God only knows what sort of person some fans want to represent our great club. Personally I reckon this manager we have is a cut above the rest and comes across as an intelligent, classy advertisement for Everton!

BBC gossip site is reporting Everton interest in Joel Campbell, at around ٥m. I like the look of him, and if Kone can be off-loaded, IÂ’d say that would be good business...
Patrick Murphy
56 Posted 16/11/2014 at 15:50:14
I assume Lukaku is on the bench again for this afternoonÂ’s match as this is the Belgium Line-up vs Wales: Courtois, Vanden Borre, Alderweireld, Lombaerts, Vertonghen, Witsel, Fellaini, De Bruyne, Chadli, Origi,Hazard.

Tim Greeley
57 Posted 16/11/2014 at 13:56:18
Do we really think Campbell would be more expensive than ٥million!? He has had almost three seasons to make an impact at Arsenal and has not and at this point, will not.

Undoubtedly he has looked good for Costa Rica but the same was said about my man No Way Jozy Altidore for the US. Its obvious he is a much better player than Jozy but I think his value could be around $5-7 million. Where would we play him though!?

As for Rom, I just donÂ’t know... I watched Lille and he was quite strong in that game, I did not watch Sunderland but the TW reviews indicate he was shite. I will keep his Lille game in my mind and just hope he will play more like that consistently going forward. According to RM he should be firing in hat-tricks every game by April! And donÂ’t even get Roberto started on his form for the 2016 season...

Max Murphy
58 Posted 16/11/2014 at 16:58:23
I believe Lukaku has already caught fire, sparked into life and burnt out. Would Chelsea/Mourinho really have let him go if they thought he is as good as Evertonians think he is? Mourinho is a very astute manager, and after the Lukaku deal must have been laughing all the way to the bank.

How many goals will he get for us this season? 25, 20, 15? If he is worth 28 million, he should be netting 30+ a season. Sadly, I think 10 to 15 will be his maximum. We have bought a damp squib.

Peter Murray
59 Posted 16/11/2014 at 17:44:22
Max Murphy (#58)

Mourinho a "very astute manager"? He has nothing to do with the buying and selling at Chelsea. He is informed by Abramovich.

Lukaku is a young lad who, in the not too distant future, will make the money we paid for him sound like a snip.

Maybe Romo is growing the dreadlocks back and it wonÂ’t be full till January.
Colin Glassar
61 Posted 16/11/2014 at 19:50:13
Max, if he was netting 30+ goals a season, heÂ’d be worth double the amount we paid for him.

Mike, he could get extensions or wear a wig.

Peter Gorman
62 Posted 16/11/2014 at 20:24:43
Big Rom has gone backwards since he joined us on loan last year. Maybe it is the lack of dreadlocks or maybe he is just joining the long list of strikers who lose the ability to hit the proverbial onion bag once they become a Blue (IÂ’m thinking Andy Johnson, Jelavic... er.. John Spencer).

I think, if anything, it is not so much too much coaching but just inadequate coaching. I am reminded of something old Cliff Marshall said to the former Players Assoc. He was told "youÂ’re priority is to defend" and he thought "sod that, IÂ’m an attacker".

Rom needs to get back to the simple things that made him so good when he first arrived. He had plenty of talent and is a lovely lad but I would rather see him blossom into the Â’30 goalÂ’ striker he is capable of being than become some kind of hold-up target man.

On another matter of coaching; there is only one veteran striker at the club he should be learning from and it ainÂ’t big Dunc. Sammy EtoÂ’o has forgotten more about being a striker than Dunc ever knew, and I say that with all the love in the world.

Robert Duncombe
63 Posted 16/11/2014 at 20:46:16
The good news is JagielkaÂ’s cracker against Liverpool is featured in the new BT advert. We have never been the main footie feature on a mainstream advert. I know this isnÂ’t a biggie but a thought it was nice.

As for big Rom, if there is a footballing god up there, do us Blues a favour and HELP HIM!!!

Terence Leong

I agree with Trevor Lynes #52. One of the classiest managers I have seen across the football universe.

Sure, he's got some faults (haven't we all?), but on the whole, he is much better than what is out there in terms of promising young managers (cue across Stanley Park, Villa Park, White Hart Lane etc).
