What a difference lukaku is making 5 goals in 5 games 6 in 6 if you count the Madrid game .
But his movement pace work rate and fact he gets in behind are a major plus points for the whole team .
Player like that was the missing part of the jigsaw .

I think we still lack the missing part of the jigsaw, the wide goal scoring forward, a Bale, Sanchez or Griezman type player.

Lukaku is having a good patch and his power combined with movement is a major plus. I hope there are enough goals from others if he has a dry run.

Red man
Both bale and griezmann are better playing down the centre.
Griezmann especial is no longer a winger.

13 Sep 2017 09:47:35
I don't think Jose wants an out and out winger, To score you almost need to be in the 'centre' yet I think as we see with Rashford, a right footer on the left, scoring goals causing problems, threatening the goal, can go wide, but also cutting in to the stronger foot, Jose wants someone on the other side, perhaps a left footer who can come central and score.

Rashford and Martial have scored as a wide forward from the left, yet how many goals are coming from our right? That's where I see the issue, the left side will be better again if Shaw becomes the player his talent suggests it could be. I think Sanchez as a right footer could get goals from the right but we need that player, that's why I single out those players or those type of players.

The jigsaw remains incomplete when we have Young or Valencia and Blind as fullbacks.

Matic just sad vital a component as lukaku Any fool can see that.

13 Sep 2017 10:56:03
I think a lot of goals are coming from our right .
Matas movement and interchanging has been very good he seems to be at the hub of every thing creative .
The jigsaw is never complete that football.

Matic has played really well but so did Herrera last season imo .
We controlled plenty of games in the cm last season looked pretty solid but lacked up top .
Matic has had a great start but lukaku has changed our attack and team imo 15 goals as a team in 5 games .
We look a real threat, real pace up top keeps the opponents playing deep stretches them gives our creative players room to work in .
Pogba as well has started this season like he finished last year and should continue to improve.

Also how many times have we had a player come off the bench and score that's a great sign of a strong squad and everyone playing for a place .

Decent 11 out last night with Shaw Herrera ibra bailly Jones rojo not even in the squad.

I agree about your point redman that a right side attacker may be very welcome however jred makes a good point neither bale or greizeman are playing that role . What if Miki continues to create lots of chances in the centre would u still want greizeman if he wanted the same spot. I'm a big bale fan but at what point do we say u had yr chances to join but now u will be almost 30 by the time it's possible and not even playing the position we want . The left side is becoming very productive goals wise and will get better when we have a FB who can get beyond the attacker on occasion . I'm not saying forget greizeman but let's see how productive Miki becomes in that role otherwise we could end up buying a replacement for our most creative player but let's see if he remains as creative . We don't yet know who will emerge as the best right sided attackers this season and we still haven't really looked properly at getting rashford playing there . but I do agree with yr point redman I just want to see who is doing the business this season playing in the position we want .

Mata miki and pogba are always trying to make things happen probing passes good running off the ball and they are our major ceative force. Lukaku ran the angles really well las night. When in the box he thrives of good service he would have got 2 last night only for a terrific block. Miki probably should have scored twice.
Fellaini has been very good and is playing well for a manager that obviously respects him.
So far so good.
Back to The league on sunday against a wounded everton who have been under performing so far. Its important that we keep winning our home games. This will be a tough fixture and will see the return of rooney who will be busting a gut to score i'm sure. Let's hope its like the return of rvp so if he does score its only a consolation goal.

13 Sep 2017 11:49:13
Everton could well be a hard match they always seem to do well against us.

13 Sep 2017 12:25:16
I think it will be hard jred.
Ithink we could well see a valencia bailly jones back in maybe darmian too.
Personlly i'd like to see 3 of the same front 4 bringing rash in for martial. With matic and fellaini in midfield.
Im wondering though if he will be tempted to bring herrera in too and move to 433 again. I think we do look better in 4231 . At home i'm hoping he keeps the more attacking shape. He can rest most or all of them for the league cup next week. Then players like jessie smalling herrera young shaw lindelof rojo carrick darmian romero martial even the likes of tuanzebe and wilson can get their opportunity to press their claim for more game time. A lot of those have hardly played and its important as a player to feel that you are part of things and that you are making a contribution and also to believe that you have a chance.

13 Sep 2017 12:36:27
Herrera may well come in for pogba.

13 Sep 2017 13:01:07
Redman. Crying out for a Steve Coppell or Giggs last couple of games. 😆😆.

13 Sep 2017 13:03:14
He might but that would seem harsh on fellaini can't doo much more to get a start.

13 Sep 2017 14:51:11
True but Herrera is well rested and should be fresh.
Depends how Jose plans to set up.

13 Sep 2017 15:02:11
Yeah that's what i'm wondering. Pogba will be out for 4 or 5 games may e so it would be nice if we could set up the same shape without him. Cska away for example will probably see us revert to 433 with jessie in. So it will be opponent specific i'd imagine.
I think everton are vulnerable so i'd like to see the same 4231 on sunday it provides a bigger threat offensively imo.

14 Sep 2017 08:52:30
Mata has started the season very well indeed in my opinion.

He's Juanderful.
