Just not sure that that is true. Seem to remember him scoring a hattrick at Old Trafford earlier in his career, and he scored 2 in a Merseyside derby, as well as goals against City and Arsenal for Everton. He scored and assisted last season against Chelsea, and scored against Sevilla in his biggest ever CL game. And he's arguably only just reaching his peak period in terms of age and maturity. FWIW I hate all this chopping and changing and having multiple captains. Roy Keane was literally an extension of Fergie on the pitch - Robbo and Brucie in a similar mould. Eric led by inspiration. Now we have the mute, a guy that wants to leave and a centre-back that's not guaranteed a game. For me the captain needs to be someone that plays all the time, somebody that organises, communicates well (to our own players, but also to the ref), and is capable of geeing things up and provoking a reaction from the team when needed. He's got to be someone that is totally on board with what the manager is asking for. There aren't many players in the squad that fit that bill. Lukaku is probably closest. He clearly had a leadership role with Belgium during the World Cup. Also he seems like a good guy with his head screwed on. I like him.
