5 subs, no Mount and Pulisic. Lukaku, Kai and Hakim were shocking and he did not play a second? WTF?!

Brought on RLC and Barkley instead ffs, what was the point of Ross especially? He was clueless and good for nothing other than holding onto the ball for too long and making easy passes. We had nobody making runs in behind which Werner could have done, instead we kept on passing between our 4 midfielders and defenders until the ball was hoofed to Lukaku and lost. 🤔 Some baffling decisions there.

He is one who I think is as good as done here barring a miracle. The big thing being TT talked about not having runs or runners v Juventus but yet he didn’t sub him on. The proof is in the pudding, why didn’t he bring him in? Does he trust him? Does he not?

Defending lukaku and writing off werner when werner has played better in the last couple of games looks pretty silly tbh

The point is why hasnt Tuchel started him once in the PL since Lukaku came in though? Or even bringing him on v Juve then talking about missing runners or runs in behind post match? 

If he had faith in Werner surely he would of played him more than 209 minutes in the PL so far? No? Or subbed him in v Juve? 

Not one mention of Lukaku in that post either but guessing you mean one from Another thread.

Because lukaku at £97M is probably undroppable as hes the only out and out finisher weve got!?

Werner cost £30M and no doubt does need more goals but comparing them is like comparing kante to rudigar lol?

Werner cost just short of £50m - Timo Werner - Player profile 21/22 | Transfermarkt

Also, price shouldn't have a notable impact on selection. Pick the best players for the job.

Only one so far but they started together just last weekend.

Am surprised no one mentioned the whole deep defences against Werner thing!

Tuchel explained last week on why Werner hasn't played much. Now, whether you want to believe his comments then, it's up to you or whether he's just talking shit...god knows at this point.

Then Lukaku should be dropped based on form like some other players

Will they drop lukaku? doubtful.

50M euros, 45m ish quid

If hes not offering us more by end of december/Jan ill adjust accordingly

Imagine wanting him to leave, he is one of our most important assets, should be above Ziyech, CHO and Pulisic in the picking order. I hope Tuchel sees this and starts playing him more, always a constant danger even when he misses, his runs alone help this team massively.

Say what you want but last 5 games Werner with 2 goals is our only attacking player with goals. All other goals defenders or defensive midfielder. Should be 3 but ref.

Apparently, Werner has had 16 goals ruled out due to offside, VAR etc since joining us.

Just saw that it’s crazy given he has scored  15 goals for us. 
He looks comical at times and can’t time his shots to save his life but his attitude is just gold.

Here's something quirkier - since Lukaku arrived, only two other attackers have scored - Werner and Havertz - and that Havertz goal came from a corner. 

And here's our full goalscorers list for the season:

Lukaku - 4
Werner - 2
Chalobah - 2
James - 1
Havertz - 1
Rudiger - 1
Silva - 1
Kante - 1
Chilwell - 1
Ziyech - 1
Pulisic - 1
Alonso - 1

If his realization of big chances last season was 55% instead of 25% he would be easily POTY. Dont forget he had double digits assists from open play.

Not sure if that's a positive or negative, considering the last striker we had was slated for the same thing.

Either way, you have to commend his perseverance. If he could finish with regularity again, Lukaku might be benched (where he really deserves to be on recent performances).

All of the offside ones are down to him really but the VAR ones are just trash. From my memory, the VAR calls at Leicester, Liverpool and today are BS.

At this point, best to just take the good and bad with Werner. He's gonna score goals but he's also gonna miss chances. Hopefully, he'll do the former more than the latter.

We'll have to hope, as I don't believe this will be Lukaku's only dry spell.
