If we had eleven of him we would win everything forever. Possibly.

Facts are facts and stats are stats and Lukaku is up there with the best of them... at 21.

"For now, Lukaku suffers from an ugly modern trend where people want to find reasons to criticise rather than compliment. It's never a case of congratulating a player for what they've done, but chastising them for what they haven't. "
Lukaku hasn't done a lot wrong this season. We know he agreed to play the first weeks still partly injured. Some of the sub par performances were probably down to that.
He hasn't had the service either. The team has been performing badly all season, yet people often focus on individuals. Especially if they've come in for big money; again something completely out of his hands.
We've seen his shit control, but we've also seen occasions when he's played superbly and his control and passing has been excellent. I think this shows it's down to form, confidence and concentration. Things he can improve on as he gets older.
I think he'll prove to be a shrewd signing.

And we all know that he has managed all this despite being 'lazy' oh and 'he can't control the ball' either apparently.

Don't mistake my comment for a boast; my touch was nothing special, his is just wretched.

How many times have we seen him cack up an opportunity due to his heavy (if I may throw that out) touch? Chelsea, Liverpool and even against Young Boys Ã‚â€“ without having to think beyond our last run of games.
For the record, I love the boy, at least I did until his moronic (.....yeah, that fits) comments about 'top clubs'. I also love how so many are prepared to leap to his defense following this hat-trick despite the general underwhelming return we've had from him all season.

Win well and all sins are forgiven and saintly status restored. And that applies to managers as well as multi-million pound strikers. But next time you lose, watch out as normal service will be resumed.....
Never been any different, really!
