Something certainly looks wrong with Lukaku. he has regressed badly. He was never this bad, surely?

We’re not playing to his strengths. Same reason he couldn’t get into that Chelsea team at the time.

Everton played off him and it worked well.

Our attacks have bypassed him before he’s even turned around.

But he has had some good moments under Ole, highlight being against Arsenal. He’s just not suited to fast attacking football, he needs to be the target man.

He’s a good player but not sure he’s for us. We are starting to have an identity again and it is about pace and quickness, not 2 of his strengths.

He is actually best suited to the inside right forward role in this team. He has done some of his best work running wide right and stretching the defense. His crossing from there is pretty good.

The only redeeming feature he has as a target man is that even the defenders don't know which way the ball will bounce off him. For his size, he is awful with his back to goal.

I think his role is an impact sub now.

He has had a dip in form and is low on confidence . it happens its not the end of the world.

Tony is spot on.
Lukaku does score goals and in the right set up he can be very effective.
So can he adapt his game? Can ole and the coaches find a way to fit him in using his strengths?
Does he want to adapt?
He is prepared to move to be a no1 in a more suitable set up?
Its one of the big issues ole will have to address in the summer if he gets the job.

He's not and never has been a target man. He's awful with his back to the goal but better running onto things.

I think ole has shown us the way he intends to play.

Lukaku will not be a starter anymore IMO. Either he's happy to be an alternative option or moves on. I'd imagine we will concentrate on getting fast forwards who can interchange between positions in the next transfer window, allowing us to be much more fluid in transition from defence to attack.

Lukaku does not suit that style of play. But he is a good alternative when we need to change tact.

I don't think he will want to be that at this stage of his career.
