    Lukaku pointing to his teammates where and when to press put me a in a mind of a boss that just got sacked but he/she didn't know. No, you're no longer under the protection of Jose Moanrinho, so stop trying to play president and do some running.

    Similar to di Maria, if we can get 50 mil for him, I'd let him go yesterday.

    Almost all of these were winning goals or the first one to unlock the game, not just goals after the game is done too. Magnificent record in such young age.

    Rashford 8 goals and 2 assists in 17 starts 8 sub in PL against City/Chelsea/Liv/Ars/Spurs

    Martial 6 goals and 3 assists in 22 starts 7 sub in PL against City/Chelsea/Liv/Ars/Spurs

    Lukaku 1 goals and 4 assists in 13 starts 3 sub in PL against City/Chelsea/Liv/Ars/Spurs

    (apologies if any errors. Short on sleep right now)

    Di Maria was (arguably) a world class player. Wouldn’t be surprised if we have to send Lukuku on loan to get rid of him.

    Love everything about Rashford, but I feel he needs time in the gym, as he seems to be getting muscled off the ball in a lot of 50/50 situations.

    That is impressive stats. Lukaku is going to find it tough to displace Rashford now.

    We already have one striker addicted to the gym, no need for another!

    Even when he wasn’t scoring Suarez was a monstrous player though. He was always creating havoc for whoever he came up against. It wasn’t his last season, but the game against United where Kuyt scored the hat trick against us, for example, Suarez was the one who destroyed our defense that day. When Lukaku can do something like that then we can talk about not just judging just his goals.

    Jose is not the manager for any attacking players.

    Feed the Rash and he'll get the goals. I hope he stays injury free and gets this run upfront for at least the rest of this season. Sell Lukaku in an elaborate exchange with Dybala at Juventus when Ronaldo goes to jail. Buy centre-half, full-back, replace Matic and win league. Seems almost too simple as one types it out...

    I don't know if he can "easily" beat Rooney's record, but I hope he does.

    A Mancunian Academy graduate as the club's all time goalscorer has a nice ring to it.

    Bit harsh. Lukaku was motm at home to Spurs and Chelsea last season. Set up the winner vs Spurs. Scored and set up the winner vs Chelsea. Played well at home to Liverpool too, setting up Rashford's first goal. Played well away to Arsenal.

    People have short memories. He's out of sorts atm but let's not be silly

    I always can't comprehend why there is a need to praise one player by degrading another teammate when they are both from the team you support.

    The people in the know sung his praises to high heaven. Same as Lingard.

    Rashford is doing a very good job. Ole is definitely a wonderful coach to him. Keep scoring. We are climbing up the table.

    You're right, forgot about the City goal this season. 2 vs Chelsea, 1 vs arse, 1 vs City this season, winner vs Spurs last year, debut vs liverpool. Maybe some others in between but those are what I remember.

    Lingard is missing Spurs and City I think.

    Yeah I reckon as things stand someone will be getting a bargain in Lukaku during the summer.

    When we sell Lukuku, I couldn’t care less if he turns out to be a goal machine for another club. He’s not shown the right attitude and application here, and he’s not the right type of player for us.

    I really don’t see a top club buying him. We only did, as we literally had no one to play upfront.

    I'm 100% consistent despite your best attempts to try and suggest otherwise (seriously dont you have anything better to do with your time). He'll be the best attacking player to come from the academy for that I'm sure, whether his best position is as a number 9 though is another matter

    Easy to forget how old he is sometimes.

    I will admit, for a few months i have been calling him at work as being over-rated. The new Danny Welbeck and so on. It felt to me like he would frequently dribble to ball out for a throw in, trip over the ball and bamboozle himself when trying a skill move. Since Ole has come in he has been nothing short of remarkable. He is now our first choice forward and i am happy to admit i was wrong. His confidence.... Like all the players it seems, was shot!

    The Mou effect!

    I think his job was to hold it up and defend when needed. which he did right up until that final break away but I guess he's the next one for the caf to attack just as people did with carrick and rooney

    That's sort of what I said but also (as someone who's fresh vs players who have played 70 minutes), he should get around and close them to slow the ball out of defence. He didn't.

    That isn't attacking a player. That's a comment about one game.

    Chill.

    He's certainly bulked up in the past year or two. I think he is about right currently. I'd worry if he gained any more muscle that he'd lose some of that explosiveness. Pace normally remains about the same with muscle adjustment (to a degree) but acceleration is normally the first indicator that there too much muscle mass.

    I'm not one for calling for playing to be shown the door after one bad performance but I would say that I was a little surprised that he didn't work the channels better. There were a few occasions where we were pinned in and it went wide to a fall back. At this point you'd expect that a forward player would move to that side of the pitch to make an easier target and also to improve the chances of winning the ball. Who knows it could have been bad positioning on his part of perhaps he was instructed to do this.

    You are comparing Suarez with Lukaku?
    Come on buddy....I realise Lukaku is a MUFC player, but you need to be careful who you compare Lukaku with.

    Please. No more "bulking up". :D

    When will football fans realise that wrestlers do not make good footballers? :lol:
    Have you learnt nothing from weight gain of Lukaku and Memphis?
    EPL footballers in 2019 need to be waif-like, but also strong. For me, Vardy is the exact type of physique which will do well as a striker in the EPL. Not surprisingly, he always seems to play with energy, pace and has great stamina.
    Now, take a look at Rashford - his physique is already very similar to Vardy.
    I am not quite sure where the idea has come from that a good footballer, can double up as a wrestler. We already have a Lukaku in our team and he can barely run for more than 10 minutes before looking gassed.

    One of Rashford many qualities is that even when he is not playing that well he doesn't hide or drop his head or shurk his responsibly.

    Not only a fantastic prospect but a real tryer with an excellent work ethnic.

    Perhaps now people will stop referring to him as Gashford (:mad:) or making ridiculous, unfounded comparisons with Danny Welbeck.

    Yeah someone like West Ham would only be delighted to take him. And you are right he will be a goal machine somewhere else but looking like it won't be here.
