    Still the pressure is off and everyone was celebrating, so not sure if makes any difference.

    Saying "It's all about him" is just making mountain out of a mole hill.

    Something like this. He's been shit for ages. I think he knows he owes us these goals so he's not celebrating yet.

    If he scores the winner in the CL final in the very last minute, in a game where we've been 3-0 down, and celebrates by calmly walking back to the center circle, i still wouldn't give a flying feck.

    I think it’s a humble reason. He’s shouldered the blame for the city defeat. Doesn’t think he deserves to celebrate until he is forgiven.

    Not really. He owes us nothing. He had scored 13 all season before yesterday

    I feel for him. May he improve his finishing and be more involved in the game

    I'm pretty sure he's going to go mental when he scores a stoppage time winner against City in Kyiv in May next year.

    Was he not just showing respect to a former club? That cnut Welbeck could learn a thing or two about that.

    You're probably right but I still have an issue with any player who celebrates in an overtly self important manner.

    I think this is probably about right.
    He isn't going to celebrate wildly about scoring against Bournemouth, when we are 11 points behind City, and the media are focusing on him only being able to score against the likes of Bournemouth...

    Think he will celebrate when he scores against one of the big boys, I assume its a cross between not being happy with his form and some of the criticism he has received for not performing in big games.

    If you believe you're a top striker, then I'm pretty sure a 10 game goal drought will leave you feeling that you owe the team

    He didn’t have a 10 game goal drought though. He scored the previous game

    Oh yes. That previous game that ended his 10 game goal drought? In which he also did not celebrate? I see your point...

    Bad as it was, Gary Neville takes that accolade. At least Lukaku isn't meant to be a defender.

    If he is showing he is upset at criticism it's a bad thing.

    If he is upset he let the team down it's a good thing.

    Since we don't know which it is, it's pointless.

    My point is that of basic epistemology, that you may *think* you know what goes on in his mind, but that doesn't mean you actually do. Perhaps he came here mainly for the money. Perhaps he came for the chance at trophies. We don't know for sure. Obviously he's going to say lofty things in an interview when signing for a new club. If he'd signed for Chelsea instead, he'd say the exact same thing.

    If I remember your previous post correctly, you had an idea that he didn't celebrate because the title race is probably over (sheer supposition on your part), and that this makes sense because he came here to win the league (another supposition). I'm not saying that's definitely wrong, I'm saying there's no way for you to know that it's right, as you don't know what he's thinking. Your mental model of the world is not the world. You've constructed a hypothesis based on very little verifiable information, and you think it must be correct. All I'm saying is that you have no way of knowing if it's correct or not.

    He scores against the lesser teams for fun (31 in his last 38 I think it was I read) so what’s there to celebrate ? Maybe when he scores against Liverpool or City or Chelsea then he’ll have something to celebrate.

    WTF was that post all about?

    This is a forum where people discuss things. I never claimed to know what his feelings on this is. Why don’t we just close this thread down then, as none of us ACTUALLY know why he’s not celebrating?!

    Mods?

    Who cares!! Atleast he's scoring, that's all that matters. Can not celebrate for the whole season carry it into Fifa 19.

    I bet it's all because those two goals against City, he took the blame big time. Hope to see him happy and win something with us but all what matters is him scoring goals.

    It feels as if he is unhappy with the way the team plays behind him, it is not his style to drop back and pick up the ball, but sometimes it barely reaches Lukaku and that is frustrating for any forward.

    I hope for our sake the team starts providing the service to Lukaku, because both Martial and Rashford have proven to be inconsistent in their goalscoring, so it is up to our number 9 to hit the back of the net most games, at least until Ibrahimovic has regained match fitness.

    I understand why he feels down. He makes runs for most of the game and no-one finds him, when they try to find him the quality of the ball is shocking, and he gives them a thumps up and clap and tries again.

    I find it pretty cool not celebrating, like that's not much of a big deal, just more goals. Celebrations became so choreographed and fake this is kind of refreshing. Never forgot this one, though.

    You know how when we're down and the players don't celebrate scoring a goal, but they grab the ball out of the net and get back to business? He may feel that he's underperformed in some matches so it's time to get back to business instead of celebrating. We should support him and get him back to his best.

    Welbeck plays for like 3 months in a year and scores something like two goals all season. So, it makes sense for him to celebrate each goal as much as possible :D

    He did it out of respect for his triple goals that famous 5-5 game.
