    Good enough :)?
  3. Romelu Lukaku

    Guys you gotta look at this objectively. Market prices are way overblown and we were in the need of a quality striker, and that striker market is very limited atm.Harry Kane - great young striker, clinical, technical, big and gets teammates involved, but Tottenham would never sell him to us and even if they would, it would be the price of their new stadium. 0Personally be my first choice. Alvaro Morata - young, tall, technical and very talented but never led the line all by himself and he's been an impact sub throughout his career. Too much of a gamble for that money. Andra Belotti - broke out last season, pacey, clinical with both feet and great arealy but also too big of a risk for that amount of money. Torino already refused 70 million from AC Milan.Lacazette - quick, clinical, get's teammates involved and consistent in French league, but don't think we were in for him anyway and for all his good performances for the last couple of years he isn't getting called for French NT. Arsenal got him anyway. Aubameyang - tall, super quick, not so clinical. Has his eyes set on Madrid and Madrid only apparently. Mbappe - 18 years of age, super quick, clinical, talented and great technique. Price would be too high, wants starter spot guaranteed and has his eyes set on Madrid. Too big of a risk for a player that's been here for a single year.Lukaku - tall, strong, clinical but not technically sound as the rest from this list but he's very consistent, been on the stage for a while and EPL proven. He was the safest pick for the money of all mentioned and that was one of the deciding factors. most intelligent post I've read in the past days!!
  4. Romelu Lukaku

    Didn't believe until I saw this video... Romelu literally says: I see you tomorrow at training. THIS IS OVER!
  5. Romelu Lukaku

    To sum things up: we totally fucked up a deal with a 23 year old potential EPL topscorer for many years to come AND who had a ***** boyhood dream to play for us????!!!!! we fucked up the relationship with our 1st striker that much that he's even willing to go to Madrid without playing for 5 months???!!!! our second striker got like 34 minutes over the whole season and must feel very unwanted even though bought for €40 million!!!??? Is this a professional football club because these things above can actually only happen in an amateur league team ran by the local butcher and gardener????!!! What will be the next move??? Offering €150 million for *** Harry Kane in a panic reaction??? AMATEURS!!!!!!!!
  6. Romelu Lukaku

    He's 10 goals away from becoming the all time TOP scorer in the history of Belgian National team (and this at the age of 23...) But if you only rate him on how many World Cup/European Cup finals goals... He's done absolutely nothing at all!!
  7. Romelu Lukaku

    The most reliable source in Belgian Media (Het Nieuwsblad) comes up with this news: Romelu clearly told his manager he wants to join Chelsea He is in contact with Conte for a while now and both agreed on the deal already a month ago. Both expecting it would have been a done deal by now! As a matter a fact a transfer was ALMOST done last summer but a dispute between both owners blew the deal off last minute! Raoiola on the other hand, wants him to go to Man U: he got Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan & Pogba signing at Man U last season and now wants to bring in a new big deal. WHY? Because Man U are paying him big bucks as a commission salary! We pay far less! All the waiting of our excellent board , made this to the situation we are in right now! Just finish this deal of ****! PLAYER wants to be here, MANAGER wants him to be here => Perfect match!

    Belgian Newspaper (reliable) reports that Chelsea and Romelu would have agreed on salary (€170.000/week)!
  9. Romelu Lukaku

    Here's an overview of all his 61 goals for Everton! Imagine there are still people on here who claim that his only strength is to run towards goal on a counter. Have a look at how many goals he makes in the 16 yard box. Exactly what we are missing at the moment! https://www.playsports.be/videozone/allecategorieen/premier-league/record-lukaku?vepE13_VID
  10. Radja Nainggolan

    Slowly but surely... he's getting here
  11. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Excuse me????!! TIBO!!!
  12. Radja Nainggolan

    Well you need a playmaker in front of them: like Cesc or even Eden! You just play them in a triangle with the point aiming up front!
  13. Radja Nainggolan

    He's like Kante with the strike from distance that we haven't seen here since Super Frank left! Are we even doubting this? Imaging what an astonishing midfield he & Kante would be!!! No one will be able to go straight through the middle :)!!! Sign him up!
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    I have only seen yesterday's first half. So I cannot judge on the second one... But I cannot understand people who are saying Hazard didn't show up, had an awful game, etc... If there would be any scouts in the stands, I'm 100% sure ALL of them would have written in their little notebooks: #10 of the blue team is very special. Because even in a 'terrible game from him': He's literally involved in ALL our attacks. He comes to look for the ball all over the pitch, even on our own half. He's the guy who speeds up the game with a little flick or diagonal pass. It might look that he slows down play because he chooses for the safe passes. But this is because he thinks way more quickly than all us together. Because if he sees an opening, he always passes diagonally, after which he normally makes a good run to receive the ball back. Not too many take on's yesterday, correct. However there were 9 Hull players behind the ball all the time... so it makes no sense to want him dribbling around 3-4 players all the time. He would literally lose the ball several times (he's not a robot) and then people would say he cannot go past defenders anymore :). Matic, Alonso, Kante, Moses (somewhat less) are all looking for him to break the dead lock. His only creative link-up options are Costa & Pedro (Fabregas if he's playing) => this is our main problem!!!! IMO yesterday was a difficult game because Hull was parking the bus... But more over because almost every creative spark depends on Eden (or Costa)!! The rest of the team is just passing around and looking for them. The bottle neck in Build up yesterday for me was Alonso. A lot of fluent attacks ended with him getting stuck. Also his crosses never reached target in the 1st half. You could blame the other for not being in the 16 yard box... but I think a player should know NOT to cross when only Diego is in a box together with 6 Tigers!! So when we are dissapointed with a game like this from Eden... when ALL scouts would put him in there booklet. We just have to realize that we are so spoiled!!!! I think we will only realize once Eden is not on our pitch anymore. And if he would ever play at Barcelona (for example)... I'm afraid we will see him at full potential in creativity and our jaws will drop down again! Until then... cherish the fact we have Eden Hazard playing in our Chelsea kit !!! Because OH MY he will be missed so much once he would be gone!
