Romelu Lukaku joins Chelsea

Started by the wes,

I really hope he develops his technique and doesn't just rely on his size and athleticism.

With Drogba mentoring him, and looking at how Drogba plays, I'm sure Lukaku won't be slacking. If he succeeds, then I can see him as our future captain... the hard work has just begun for him.

You can't really compare Kalou and Lukaku now can you :D Drogs and Kalou don't even play the same position, absolutely different players. And there is not much wrong with Kalou's technique, he just doesn't seem to have the intelligence to use it wisely... That's why he is inconsistent, some days work out for him, some days the opposition defenders are just worse, most of the times he just makes wrong decisions.

Kalou was originally a striker.

A different striker. Lukaku is already Drogba on steroids in terms of physics. Again, I see no basis why people compare him to Kalou/C.Cole/Heskey... Kalou just doesn't have it, whilst Lukaku definitely has the passion to make things happen and Drogba is his idol. I can't even see Drogba mentoring Kalou anymore, if anybody, it should be Malouda. Lukaku doesn't strike me as a sloucher/slacker type.

Lukaku's dad - "For him, it's an absolute dream come true. He will play alongside his idol, Didier Drogba. When he heard the news, he went crazy. He jumped for joy. He has directly put on the jersey of Chelsea and he started dancing in the living room. At that moment, I remembered that my son was still only 18. This naivety is amazing. I think it will help him succeed. He will play in one of the biggest clubs in the world but it will never be undermined by pressure"

Big smile on my face reading that. I really hope this boy succeeds here.

Are you in anyway suggesting that Drogba is technically gifted?

of course not but kalou is a striker, its us who have made him into a make shift winger. The point im making is that drogs aint a coach and we shouldnt expect him to be training lukaku in one to ones. Of course he will pass on bit of knowledge but he wont be the reason for lukakus success or failure.

Are you saying Drogba isn't technically gifted?

Perhaps we have to define "technique". When discussing technically gifted strikers, the names that usually comes to mind are Berbatov, Aguero,Van persie, Zlatan, D.Villa, Eto'o et al. players who possess great first touch and close control and decent/excellent dribbling skills among other skills. To me Drogba has always relied on his physicality and belongs to the same level as Van Nistelroy, Di natale,Torres, Luca Toni et al in terms of technical ability.

They Heskey comparisons may be harsh but people who watch Belgian football have come up with better:

On his good day he's Drogba

On his average day he's Adebayor

On his bad day he's Kenwyne Jones

Drogba is comparable with some of those you listed above.

If we are talking about technically gifted players than real Ronaldo tops all lists.
