I've been watching lukkaku closely these last few games, people who think he is world class are deluded. He will never be exceptional in any key areas, I've seen him 3 or 4 times these last 3 games when he gets in the box he can't sort his feet out.
Big strong boy can hold up the ball and all that but he will never be a world beater.

Your bang on target.

If we are in a crucial game and we need that match winning goal, i don't think Lukaku is that man.

14 Jul 2018 16:26:59
He is a big lumbering donkey if we are being honest, but he does work hard and can be effective at certain times. I like his attitude and he'll guarantee 20-30 goals a season, but we need more than that - it's a lottery whether he will make the pass or even control the ball, brute power only gets you so far.

People will argue that a striker just needs to score, but that is wrong, because you could have a striker scoring less, but laying on twice as many very easily. That said I think we have 5-6 positions we need to look at more urgently. Next manager will sell him for a profit imo and we will sign somebody with technical skills which get the best out of the players around them.

14 Jul 2018 16:29:10
Disagree massively. Yes he needs to improve his touch but he has come on leaps and bounds in his work rate, positional awareness and hold up play. When given proper service he is usually prolific. He has all the attributes to be a world class player. Unfair you are judging him on the World Cup because lots of players have looked below par. Kane is a key example. He has been a complete shadow of the player we are used to seeing at spurs, doesn’t mean he is not world class. But I’m sure there are football fans who are prisoners of the moment and judge a player on 2-3 games.

14 Jul 2018 16:34:42
Park 7ve watched him close for 12 months. In the crucial games you need to score those goals turn loses in to wins.

14 Jul 2018 16:42:18
Same could be said of Kane, who has contributed nothing in the last three games.
Rashford, playing very well though.
A big shout for Munier, who has played well for psg and playing exceptionally well today.
Jones just showing us why he should never put a United shirt on again, he is useless.

14 Jul 2018 16:46:33
Totally agree on lukaku, but to be honest there aren’t many world class players about. Far to much hype with some.

14 Jul 2018 16:50:44
Leahy we hardly create any chances but when we do he does often score. You give the service and chances the city, Liverpool and spurs create and he will be on 35+ goals a season. Yes he needs to improve against the big teams but we simply do not create enough or are not set up correctly to get the best out of him. He is world class and he will get better.

14 Jul 2018 17:08:13
Rashfords been horrible? What are you watching?

14 Jul 2018 17:15:26
Fzz, Rashford was the best front player we had today, what are you watching?

14 Jul 2018 17:15:45
The man got 28 goals last season and we don’t really play to his strengths? Look how he played against Brazil. Today he was poor, but he’s always a threat and he’s a goal scorer. I’d like to see him in a pair to take away the burden of being involved in the attacks. I think he’d link well with Sanchez or martial in a pair.

14 Jul 2018 17:26:10
16 league goals is not good. He scored 9 or 10 more league goals for Everton the year before.

14 Jul 2018 17:28:14
Today? a meaningless game Rashford turns up, sounds about right.

14 Jul 2018 17:39:00
Beast you say 16 league goals isn’t good. I remember before Ronaldo and Messi took goalscoring to a different level, reaching 20 plus in a season in all competitions was considered a very good accomplishment. If we play to Rom’s strengths, eg better crossing and playing the ball infront of him rather Ham him having to come deep and be involved he will score a lot more.
We knew when we signed him that his main assists are his pace, power and putting the ball in the net. His overall game is improving and improving fast. About a week ago we were talking about building a side around him, now he’s not high level?
He’s been much better than Kane in this World Cup.

14 Jul 2018 17:44:52
The boy will score bags loads.

14 Jul 2018 18:19:03
When you get in the box you need a bit of close control. He can not sort his feet out, he will score goals but when it counts against the big teams you don't get many chances and you have to put them ones away if you want to play at the highest level, now he has a good attitude big and strong but will never be and out and out goalscorer.

14 Jul 2018 19:05:32
At the age of 25 lukaku has 40 goals in 71 games for Belgium.
Ronaldo had 22 in 70 games Messi had 26 in 71 at the same age .
Lukaku scored 27 goals in a team that struggled to create chances.

But he will never be an out and out goalscorer? ,

14 Jul 2018 19:32:22
How many goals did Ronaldo score every year for the last ten years.

{Ed002's Note - More than 8.}

14 Jul 2018 19:39:27
I can't believe the madness! Who in world football would you want to bring in instead? He's world class compared to others of his age.

14 Jul 2018 19:52:05
He will always score goals, but the way Jose plays you'll never get the best out of him. But that's the case for all our attacking players. Rom will keep scoring, but is he enough? Nope, is he a big clumsy mess a lot of the time. Yep. Good player, but not world class by a long shot. I preferred him when he was slimmer and quicker. God knows why he thought he needed to baulk out more. he was big enough.

14 Jul 2018 19:50:11
Hes a great goal scorer but not for the big games. He might win us the league but he needs to work on his ability to score crucialgoals when it matters moet . For e. g. champuons league final or the fa cup final.

He missed good chances versus France as well in the world cup.

14 Jul 2018 19:57:15
Spot on caolan and jred. Lukaku’s number speak for himself. Already top scorer for Belgium. The guy is a goal machine if he played to his strengths. Top player.

14 Jul 2018 20:16:50
Lukaku's touch does tend to desert him and unless he improves in this area he will most likely never be regarded as great. However his game is more than just scoring. The ball he played behind the defence that led to Belgium's first was perfection. He's proved himself an adept crosser of the ball for United too. If he continues to score 20-30 goals a season and provide 5-10 assists one can hardly complain about his productivity, notwithstanding some skill deficiencies.

14 Jul 2018 20:35:14
Agree jred. he will score more this year.

14 Jul 2018 21:03:01
Angel 27 goals this season and we all know United didn't play that much attacking football .

14 Jul 2018 21:29:10
Lads I’m sorry but if he is striker who garuntee’s 20-30 goals (as some are admitting on here) what else do you want? Van Nistelroy averaged 30 a season. Would you rather morata who is decent on the ball or a goal scorer? Rom is only getting better and scoring goals. What more do we expect, if we played to his strengths he’d get 40 at least.

14 Jul 2018 23:16:18
He's a decent striker for sure, but we need more than just Rom. Completely understand why Jose wants another striker. At times we had Fellaini playing as a striker up with Rom. Be good to see Rom and another in the opposition box. Fellaini doesn't really work as the striker, Sanchez was used in that role too, albeit not a target man like Fellaini, that didn't work well either. Maybe another striker is what we need. Keep Sanchez in his preferred position. That being said we know Jose won't be getting everything he wants, so may prioritise other areas and not focus on another striker. Time will tell.

15 Jul 2018 00:09:44
I'm still not convinced. I want to be, but I'm really not sure.

15 Jul 2018 01:30:50
27 goals in a side that didn’t play attacking football. I’m not couting assists, where I’m sure he got near double figures as he is our best crosser. What more can you want. We knew when we signed him he didn’t have the technical ability that Van Persie had. But he’s got a killer instinct infront of goal and we need to play to it.
