Still talking shit isnt he?

First he posts a video that he knows will clearly spark the rumours, then he claims that as bullshit. And next week he will be revealed at Chelsea probably.

Cant he just chill on holidays and wait for whoever announces his signature, since its crystal clear he is leaving everton?

Why did he post the video? He's playing around with people in the offseason. That's why. It's everyone else's fault they look into things way too much during this part of the year. Just like playing with a team on Footballs Manager or following a club or player on social media. Not everything these people do have to be inspected under microscope as some hint of their intentions.

I'm afraid not a lot of you will have seen the interview (let alone be able to understand a single word they say ). So here's the summary of the most important things that have been said: He's feeling

Big words from Drog.

Wrong shirt at the wrong moment Romelu

I wouldn't surprise if he is 'forced' to stay at Everton next season, and will sell him next summer after WC. It looks like they will hold for 100m price tag, and we won't paying that.

Everton's new signing Sandro Ramirez is the next coming of christ, I'd put all my eggs in that 5m basket instead of this outrageously priced one.

Graham Beecroft who has lots of connections to Everton was on Talksport this morning and was asked about Lukaku, he said it's nailed on he's off to Chelsea and said our Nike deal taking effect is what is delaying the announcement of it.

I don't get to listen to talksport often being in the US, but from what I've heard, it's a Liverpool, Arsenal and United wankfest at a level that Sky and BBC could only dream of.

If we are waiting for the Nike deal to be confirmed before announcing Lukaku, okay fine but I would still be surprised if Antonio Conte wanted Romelu Lukaku over Alvaro Morata. I just don't get him coming here, he isn't in that mold that Conte likes and for anything over 40 million it is a ridiculous waste of money unless Conte absolutely insisted on signing him.

My completely unsubstantiated guess:

the club wants Lukaku back. He's one of the highest scoring strikers in the league the last couple of seasons, was once a Chelsea player and "loves the club". Conte probably wanted someone else, but he was told that they'd go in for any big player Conte wanted in exchange for bringing Lukaku in and that player is Sandro. The only reason I'm thinking this is because there was no talk about Sandro coming here until the Lukaku rumors started to look more promising.

 

Or maybe Conte believes a big, power striker is what this team needs.

It's just a shit Radio Station really. Alan Brazil is always pissed on air talking about pub lunches and Champagne. Mike Parry and his co presenter are always arguing about who looks better dressed, Hawkesby and Jacobs just talk utter drivel and bore the life out of the nation and Adrian Durham is the biggest prat on the earth and just winds people up so they ring in and pay his wages.

I think its the club in all honesty. Like Luiz. Its an interesting move yes, he has got a lot of goals in the PL but his overall game still makes me wonder, is he going to be able to provide what Costa does? Because lets be honest Costa has gotten a lot of flack at times here but he isn't just a predator in the box he is an aggressive player off the ball, can play with his back to goal, runs the channels, wins a lot of fouls/balls out of nothing, can link well with Hazard/Pedro/Willian were as perhaps Lukaku doesn't have all of that, I think I seen somebody on sky sports say is Lukaku going to be on the same wavelength as one of Hazard, Cesc, Pedro or Willian like an on song Costa is? Or is his back to goal play as good as his? I have the same questions myself, I don't think he is the right fit, Morata is unknown to the PL maybe but he has played a few years in the Champions League, has played at two of the biggest clubs in Europe and ultimately is a winner, having won Serie A, La Liga, CL (fair enough RL probably got a medal when we won it), Club World Cup etc.

It's somehow depressing to learn Lukaku's only 4 years younger than Costa. I guess we bought Lukaku when Costa was 23 and still hadn't even made his Atletico impact?

It's 5 :)

But yeah, Costa broke in late, just like Drogba. We signed Didi at the age of 26 after one season at Marseille. At 23 he wasn't even playing in League 1.

Let me be pedantic and protect my ego. Lukaku is 24 and Costa is 28. Neither have a birthday coming up. It's 4, for now.

And there's nothing wrong with that. But it puts into perspective that they're the same generation. Lukaku's always had a narrative forced on him that he's the 'next big thing' from the 'next generation', but he isn't that young, it's simply surprising :P

Every single striker people compare Lukaku to and say he's better than if we're linked with them (Lewandowski, Aubameyang, Costa) are at least 4 years older and were worse than Lukaku at his age. Now I'm not a fan of the notion that 'look where he was at his age' but more important point is a lot of the slights aimed at Lukaku like 'he's not a big game player' (very debatable), 'no CL experience' could have been attributed to these players when they were 24.

It could be said to any alternative to Lukaku of same age bar Morata and Mbappe, not sure if I'm getting my point across but I think people need to realise he's not in his prime yet and like many other CFs right now in Europe his best could well come in the years he's about to see. He's in a different stage in his career than the likes Costa

Yeah, he is not a teenager anymore but this can be the first time when he can really prove his worth. He scored 25 goals this season and 25 last season, it's pretty much everything one can achieve at Everton. Now is the time for him to make a big step.
