5 thoughts on “Romelu Lukaku: A Good Player Never Made for Chelsea

  1. As an Everton fan I’m pleased we’ve got Lukaku, he isn’t the finished article yet and I think with the title in mind that is what Jose wanted. A player who knows how to be part of a winning squad. Lukaku is young player and he knows he needs game time to improve, arguably game time he isn’t going to get at Chelsea given Costa’s arrival, Drogba’s return and £50m laid out for Torres, with those players he’d be down the pecking order.

    At Everton he will be starting most games for a decent Premier League team and playing in Europe (albeit Europa!), his competition in the squad will be Arouna Kone, similar type of player perhaps technically better than Lukaku and whom ever else Martinez brings in on loan. For Lukaku’s career Everton appear the better option.

    I think the deal makes sense to both parties.

  2. I’m ecstatic to have signed Romelu. For years we have been desperately seeking that elusive 20 goal a season striker and in Lukaku I think we finally have them. The best thing is his age and potential. We haven’t signed a 28 year old with a couple of seasons left in the tank. Romelu can lead Everton into a new era.

    However he is still young and there are aspects of his game that need to improve and I think Mourinho was unwilling to guarantee him a central role as he saw these shortcomings. For example, his first touch is very heavy and his link up play is often lacking. Allow him to run at a defence and he is deadly, but he isn’t so good at creating his own chances and can fade out of games if he isn’t receiving good service. This can all be trained into him though.

    The bottom line is that Rom is powerful, pacey and a deadly finisher who will score goals. A striker who can score regularly is exactly what Chelsea were lacking last season, so from that point of view it is hard to understand why Jose didn’t show some faith in the lad, especially with the likes of Scherle, Hazard and Oscar providing the chances.

    Diego Costa looks like an excellent forward and good luck to him but I think Mourinho has made a mistake here and I’m very glad he has!

  3. I think Lukaku is a young striker with potential to be a world class act but he talks to much and probably demands too much also. Certainly Chelsea and Jose can not start him ahead of Costa and even Torres. He’s sold and we wish him all the best in football.

  4. Let his football doing the talking than a small boy player causes a problem with Club, the club big than him? his attitude toward Chelsea and the Coach are not good. Lukaku didn’t want to gives respect to others senior player in Chelsea because of that he did not deserve to be in Chelsea. Lukaku can not play for Chelseafc he isn’t so good at creating his own chances and can fade out of games if he isn’t receiving good service. No team in the league playing against Chelsea gives that space to a striker which Lukaku need to exploit for Goal. Since he did not ready to learn the trick, isn’t the finished article yet he want permanent base Chelsea need to sell him.

  5. Keeping lukaku at chelsea would cause a lot of problems in the dressing room, because of his 16 premier league goals last season with Everton he feels he’s above everyone in the club. But thankGod Jose is wiser than him. We wish him all the best of his career with the toffees.
