Because as many people here mentioned, you can see Lukaku is a massively overrated poor footballer from a fecking mile, its so obvoius. Nothing to do with hindsight, many said it here before he was bought.Captain Hindsight here.
You can’t sit there and tear into our recent recruitment for looking into high profile players on the decline (Kane?), then pedal the idea that we should have been going for younger players who can develop into world class forwards all along, and then also tear into the very sort of thinking that lead us into buying a Premier League-proven 24 year old coming off the back of scoring 25 league goals for Everton.
What Lukaku was, or rather what he looked like he could have turned into, is essentially exactly what you’re asking for right now. That he never managed to kick on and had the world’s largest chip on his shoulder is only truly apparent now he had his chances at the top and then blew it.
And this is the risk. Oshimen, Ramos, your man at Atalanta who has scored eight (eight!) fecking goals. It’s why Harry Kane makes even more sense. He’d come in and score, which is what we need.
At no point did he look like anything that I have said, aside from young.
