Does anybody else think Lukaku's touch is not to dissimilar to when you bounce a rugby ball? On occasion it goes where you (he) intended, but more often than not it pings off in a random direction!

He has a head like a 50p piece and feet made of 20p pieces!

It should like trying to watch an Octopus control a ball.

"He's not a player that participates a lot in the build-up, "

Mourinhos comments on lukaku when we signed him, he wanted a killer in front of goal and that's what lukaku has been, can't remember too many times he's missed an abvious goal scoring oppurtunity a la martial, lingard and rashford against leicester.

Hes averaging a goal every two games in the league which although not on the same level as kane is still very much acceptable.

Lukaku is one of the few player where everyone always points out his weaknesses before acknowledging his strengths and he's been treated awfully by our fanbase from songs about how big his package is and booing him at old trafford. Fans should probably reign it in a bit and actually start supporting him.

The problem with Lukaku is that all this build up play etc isn’t his game, he’s clinical in the box, he does his damage there. He will score plenty of goals if he stays in the box. But the way we play it doesn’t suit him, I think if we had better delivery then lukaku would be brilliant. We have far too many individuals in this team who want to do everything themselves i.e Rashford, martial, Pogba etc.

Good post that pal.

Lukaku has been very good in the build up play.

He has laid on some great passes and cross.

Lots of players take a bad first touch, Rashford does it a fair few times (a lot of fast players do) .

Lukaku is in his first season and is doing fine. The last few games have been down to defence conceding stupid goals from City to Burnley.

But let’s all jump on Lukaku - getting like the Liverpool page here.

Utd Road totally agree with you. There has been a huge improvement in his link up play. It's not his fault that for example against Burnley he didn't get a pass when in great positions to score. He is not the reason we are going through a bad patch. At the start of the season he was scoring almost every game because he got the right service. Lads be fair.

Good post DSG.
I think of the summer signings matic and lukaku have both done well. Lindelof has shown good character and looks like he can recover in time from a desperste start to his united career.
Sure lukaku needs to get even better especially against the big teams. But in those games he has lived of very meagre scraps.
I'm not one that thinks he should be beating 3 men on his own and scoring you can't critisise him for not doing that as it's not his game. When he gets the service that play to his strengths he scores goals.

I admire the fact he is obviously working on the weaker parts of his game and I think lately he has created well for others.

Great post DSG. Lukaku is a killer in front of goal but we are seeing too much of him dropping outside of the box at the minute, probably down to frustration at not getting enough service.

But hat's off, he works incredibly hard.
