He was rubbish today, along with the rest of them.

When you are an athlete like this lad blessed with the size, speed and power he has then I really am at a loss to explain how he was so comprehensively bullied. Well that's a lie... I do know why he was bullied he allowed himself to be because he wasn't bothered.
Let's look at that in depth: a player who we have offered a mega-money contract to who has rejected it whilst questioning our ambition "decided" to stroll through the derby...
He doesn't "get" Everton. He has never immersed himself into the club all he has immersed himself into is "The World of Rom".
I'm equally as angry with Koeman for keeping him on the pitch. It simply can't be allowed that a player is able to "not try" it wasn't about lack of service. We can look at service when we are content that he did the basics of what he can do:-
Press the defence
Compete in his duels
I could do a separate piece about players not passing very well or being off the boil 9 or 10 would fit in that category... Barkley the prime example but give the lad credit he tried, he wanted it, probably too much. He never hid, got stuck in too much.
I'm sick to the back teeth of Lukaku. I've had enough of him and his circus. I'm sure he will erase some memories when up against some cannon fodder to get his stats up.

It's ironic that Lukaku gets this on a thread focused on him being awarded Premier League Player of the Month.
Yes, let's just sell him, replace him with a workhorse, see how we do then.

Really? So which manager sent out a team one v eleven? Idiotic. No striker wins a game single-handed because no striker comes back, wins the ball, takes it the length of the pitch, and scores, then runs back to defend his whole third and goal. I swear the comments on here about Lukaku from you and Peter (who only comes onto the site after Rom hasn't scored in two games isn't it) get more and more ridiculous.
Romelu Lukaku was Player of the Month. Refusing to see his qualities and accomplishments, even over that period of time, and then making comments about the blind and the voters for a laugh, just makes you both look a little churlish, doesn't it?

Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku need 2.44 shots per goal!

But some folks will jump on the recent poor games, and want them sold. Fortunately, they're in a minority amongst Evertonians.

Peter@12: Interesting stats, which underline Rom's class. The comparison with Vardy shows a significant difference between these players, Lukaku having the better stats. How anyone can suggest that Everton should try to sign Vardy to replace is beyond me. Maybe sign Vardy to support Lukaku.
