He must be pointing to his next club.
Or the Fridge...
To the chips
I think we all knew hed score against the majority of the cannon fodder in Serie A and fall apart when he faced anyone half decent.
Because there’s some absolute mentalists on here. Pitty Haram is gone, he was obsessed with Lukaku and thought of him as a Messi / Ronaldo hybrid. Bless him.
Gone as in banned? Or did he decide to leave and support his favourite player's new team - Inter?
Banned I think. He was always good for a laugh tbh. I imagine he’s holding out to see who José joins so he will be able to support a team again. In the meantime he’s probably a staunch Inter fan spamming their forums about how awesome Lukaku is.
Youre making this assertion after the guy has started just 6 league games, scoring 3 league goals, in a new team, in a new league. There's no sense there.
Give the fuy at least half a season before the "we were right" proclamations come in.
Does anyone know if that English speaking ‘Forza Inter’ forum is an accurate representation of what Inter fans really think of Lukaku?
If so, the majority of people on there haven’t really taken to him.
Well, it’s pretty similar to what people were complaining about on here - first touch, hold up play, lack of movement, and his pointing!
Saying that, if I knew we were not going to get a proper replacement for him, I would have kept him.
Maybe we should tell them they got shipped the wrong player, and swap Rashford for Lukaku?
That comment about trying to be a player coach was too true. Absolutely hated how he had the gall to chew out his teammates for their errors and even his. He just got there and he's already trying to tell them what to do. This guy isn't going to be very popular with his teammates.
Or fans. He’s got no self awareness.
Very dislikable person. Which is a shame, as everyone would have said the opposite 3 or 4 years ago. He’s someone who has let going to a big club go to his head, and now thinks he’s made it. Again the opposite is true, he’s a poor player with a shit attitude who likes to many chips.
We need someone to check Italian forums, @devilish.
He got in a big row with Brozović cause he was giving lectures to other players how to play and to listen to the coach. Brozke was having none of that.
How is he doing over there?
If United were run like a proper club we would be sat here laughing at Lukaku’s apparent initial struggles at Inter. Make no mistake, he is a cart horse who belongs nowhere near a top side. But as it happens we are sat here with even more rubbish options, secretly wishing we still have a striker who struggles to break the 15 goal mark in the league.
This will age well.
He does already have an excellent career, good scoring record at one of the top league in the world, a wc semi and likely to finish as his national side’s top scorer (if he isn’t already). He just won’t ever be a great of the game, or one of the leading players of his generation, which in his inflated opinion of himself he probably already is.
I haven't watched the game but an Inter friend of mine was quite pissed off with his game against Juve. Meanwhile the ratings at various sites gave him between 4.5 and 5.
He still looks massive.
I have berated both Jose and Ole for their failure to get him on a diet, but if even Conte can’t do it maybe it’s just too difficult to get him to cooperate. In which case we were absolutely right to move him on.
He will smash San Marino and people will be back with "he scores when chances are created" completely ignoring the level of opponents.
Which isn’t terrible, no? I’ve read somewhere that Italian newspapers are very tough with their grading and a good performance is usually a 7.
yes, Italian media tend to be quite cynical especially if you see them from the typical Sentimental United top red perspective. They also don't buy this 'hardworking' BS thing very well. Gattuso had to win multiple league titles and a WC before AC Milan fans accepted him as a suitable heir to the likes of Ancelotti, Rijkaard and co.
Oh really? I wonder what happened.
5 is bad, 4.5 is terrible
It's also only the second poor game he's had for inter so far, on the whole he's not had a bad start, but the juve game is huge and pretty much takes precedence over the rest.
As to inter fans, they're starting to turn. All the stuff that drove you guys mad(the poor touch, the pointing, etc) is starting to get to them too. Many still trust Conte though
Well that's an upgrade over Rashy Welbeck who seem struggling to score against anybody really.
I don't know if it's accurate but you will see the same things on french and italian forums.
So glad he's gone, regardless of goals being an issue. His attitude stinks and you can't rebuild with players like that around. It must stem from pure winging it as a footballer these days and not understanding why he's not very good.
I do find it weird that two world class managers in Conte and Mourinho are both so smitten with him as a player. What do they see that everyone else do not?
Is this his fecking agency comparing his record to Henry's?
I am sure Henry's World & Euro winners medals will provide him with comfort in dealing with the pain & humiliation...
I bet Lukaku passes out just from watching all the running Henry did during the 2000 Euro final
..and if someone passes to him where he wants, he fails to reach or control it and then gives thumbs up to that player. Pointing and thumbs up, key aspects of his game.
Why wouldnt he? Lukaku crushes him in that regard?
Henry was never a star with France, it's not as laughable as it looks
It so laughable - and just after Lukuku scores twice....
Against San Marino!
Did this go out with Lukuku’s blessing? If it did, it makes it so much worse, and just shows how deluded he is.
International football is stronger now than it was back then.
Did Henry only play in world cup finals every international break? Henry would have faced the same amount of average sides as Rom has.
Some strikers just take to international football better than others. He compliments KDB well (apparently)while Henry was getting criticised every international break for not performing as he did with Arsenal and not merging well with Zidane.
He probably leaked team plans to the press before matches. Probably leaked other information to the press too - such as player speed. He did it because he wanted to engineer a move away as he demands to start matches. He can't score against top teams. He's a flat-track bully. He had to go. He was Mourinho's man - his BTEC Drogba. Both are gone now. Time to move on to something better.
He has scored a competitive goal in international football against Croatia. The other top nations he has scored against are Holland and Portugal in friendly games.
The rest of his 48 goals or so come against cannon fodder. His international record mirrors his domestic record, he's a flat track bully of a player who rarely makes a difference against a top team.
You shitting me? Teams like Greece, Costa Rica, Finland, Norway, Ireland, Sweden.. all used to have stronger teams in the past like way stronger compared to now. Even the mighty Czech Republic that beat England yesterday used to have such a strong team 10+ years ago.
