    • Romelu Lukaku
      Honestly at this point, I think he may be a better player than Costa.  You can harp on about consistency, but one guy plays for Everton, and the other for Chelsea. Easier to convert chances when a lot more are being created for you and you're surrounded by far better talent. Costa, for such a big and strong guy himself really struggles for me in regards to playing with his back to goal. Even Torres, for all the talk of being soft and a sissy at times was far better in the link up, and hold up aspect of things, and he originally didn't start off that way as a player. Costa really struggles with his touch and ability to shield the ball when coming back to meet the ball. Kills off a few of our promising attacks. When he is side on with his man, he is fantastic, and knows how to keep his man off him. I also don't mind his runs when he is facing goal and tries to take on 2 or 3 players. I've always considered it a positive since it keeps the defenders on their toes, and he is in fact a lot better at it than people give him credit for at it.  Lukaku looks like a completely different player than what he once was. His movement is great in the box, he can still slip the lines and use his pace, and he dribbling has gotten a lot better. If he was playing for one of the top teams, I think he'd be getting best striker in the league talks.

      Hypocrite ? Really ? Maybe you should ask Frank Lampard or Didier Drogba, who worked with him many years, they'll give you a better insight of his personality, about "attacking everyone" the problem is, he attacks everyone "all the time" whereas he should attack them one by one, Clough & Ferguson did just like that and are right up there as the best bosses Football has ever seen, so its common to be on the attack as a top manager.
