Romey 1878

Longest Thread For Drivel (or the Romelu Lukaku thread)

Recommended Posts

It does seem an odd situation for him at Chelsea. AVB continues to play an under-performing Torres (who he didn't even buy) rather than a player that he obviously thought highly of considering the fee they paid for him. Perhaps some pressure from Abramovich to keep on playing Torres?

 

I'd like to see us take a punt on Lukaku on loan, however I can't see it coming off and if I had the choice between him on loan or Stracq as a permanent option I know which one i'd go for..

As far as I can remember he has only played as the central striker once and that was when he bossed our back 4 in the league cup. He has the raw ability but like a lot of youngsters that join big clubs, he will rot on the bench when he needs to be playing week in week out.

In an interview to a Belgian radio show today, Romelu Lukaku expressed his wish to play one level higher than West Brom. He said he didn't want to return to Chelsea per sé, but that he wanted to get back in touch with European football.

 

Chelsea will definitely keep him in the EPL. So there's 7 teams that are better than West Brom who'll play European football. Neither of the Manchesters need him. Arsenal and Tottenham are too close competitors to Chelsea, plus they're from London. That leaves Liverpool FC and Everton FC.

 

It's vague and it's speculation, but it's his wish and it's a loan that would make sense to both teams, but I suppose he'd get more chances to play at EFC than at LFC, because of Sturridge. All I'm saying is that it is a signal and with a bit of 1+1=2, we can take notice of this. Plus Fellaini and especially Mirallas are buddies of Lukaku

 

Oh he's Belgian? Darnit didn't know that... Well I suppose I'm gonna have to face some repercussions from certain Swedish individuals for this then....

No. 5th is the last spot and we can only finish 6th.

 

Oh okay then I stand corrected and this thread is obsolete and may be deleted. Lame that you only get 1 EL spot from regular competition. I thought there were 3.

I like Lukaku, would have been nice.

Dunno if you have noticed Mirallas but I have given you credit when credit is due, Ive been hard on you when you post shit. Sorry if you think ive been too hard on you. Like you said I do tend to go all in with my emotions.

 

I am swedish and ive been pushing Guidettis name around here a lot. I understand that nationality colours your preferances in players. Im also guilty of that. Its nice to have someone of your own nationality in the team. Its a shame that Hammar is leaving. He was the only swede.

 

One of the reasons that it is nice for a smaller football nation than England, like Sweden and Belgium is that the national newspapers like to cover the teams with players from their own countries.

 

Everton recieved more coverage in Sweden when players like Alexandersson, Blomqvist, Limpar and Linderoth featured for the club.

What a shame that we won't be qualifying for Europe. It seems 3/4 years 6th will get you into the Europa League due to the League Cup winner/FA Cup winner or runnerup having qualified for the Champions League or Europa League.

Yup....it's really unfortunate. Also we've already got more points than we had in 04/05 when we were fourthsad.png.

Fifth place receive one

FA Cup winner receive one

League Cup winner receive one

Team with least yellow/red cards who haven't already qualified for Europe receive one

If Chelsea win on wed night, do we get their spot because they are in the champs league for next year?

Is that least yellow/red card qualification legit? I call bullshit but I cant see any sarcasm in your post Louis.

 

"English winners of the UEFA Europa League will enter at the Group Stage, gaining an extra domestic place only if they fail to qualify through other means for the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League. If the holders of the UEFA Europa League have already qualified for Europe, no extra domestic place will be gained."

 

So if Chelsea were to win the Europa they would qualify on that had they finished outside the top 5, but since they have already qualified for UCL, nothing happens.

If the English league finishes in the top three in the UEFA fair play table then there'll be an extra Europa place for the highest team in the premier league fair play table not already qualified....won't be us; Liverpool, Southampton, Fulham and Reading all better placed at the last count.

I would love Lukaku at Everton. I think him and Jela would link up well together. Unfortunately not going to happen, if Chelsea loan him out again it will be to a Spanish side I reckon.

I'd love him, too. Hopefully, we could work something out with Chelsea, and maybe there would just be a "can't play against us" clause.

They won't need a clause for that, there's a PL rule about it.

Lukaku could use his strength to hold off the defenders and lay the ball to Jelly. The problem with Jelly this season is that for the first half of it he had no service (and therefore lost confidence) which meant that when the service did get better to him he couldn't hit a barn door.

Why would Chelsea loan a striker out when their current strikers are not in great form?

 

It can be advantageous to a big club to lend a player out in order to have him hurt their rivals, but not sure they would lend him to a direct rival like ourselves. Had we a striker who had scored 17 goals, we would have finished above them. Not going to happen.

exactly, with their loanee having a very productive season they would be stupid to get him go out again. then again, this is Chelsea.....

 

edit: not sure Chelsea are considered a direct rival though unsure.png

Chelsea should keep hold of Courtois this season too. He's been nothing short of brilliant for Athletico this season and I think he could be another Petr Cech should he get given enough Premier League experience.

If we get 8 mil for Jelavic (who I still feel should get another season at Everton) its a no brainer to reinvest that and pay another 2 for Lukaku. Good investment for the future.

 

There is no way that any team can get Lukaku for £10 mil. It's a pity from EFC perspective, but it's reality.

How many times have we heard this.......Lukaku has already been told he isn't going back out on loan. So basiccaally if someone offers 10mil for him then they will accept it.

I was just referring to bluenosetoffees post. Do you think Lukaku will be more than 10 mil?

That is what I think he is worth 10-15mil at the most. He is young, talented and if Sturridge can go to Liverpool for 12mil then surely they would let Lukaku go for 10-15mil. All depends who they buy this transfer market. If they are proven strikers then they will probably let him go as he won't want to be a bench warmer.

 

The only problem is Chelsea paid 20mil (10mil plus add ons) from Anderlecht for him and doubt they would accept 10mil. I am just basing it on what I think he is worth that's all.

thats exactly the reason why it will never happen. Plus the 17 goals he scored during the season. Hes still a 20m striker because of his age and goal return.

 

Unfortunately for us :(

Well it seems logical to me. He was bought as a rough diamond 2 years ago for £17 mil. Now he has proven himself one of the top scorers in the premier league and he's still only 20 years old. The guy is like Drogba, but a bit more combative and active, but his kicking technique isn't quite as good. Chelsea know better than any team in the league what the value of that is. I think they won't sell Lukaku for much less than 20 mil unless he has a discordence with the board or manager. That's maybe above his value, but it's just for the simple fact that they just don't want to sell him.

The prices of players nowadays is outrageous and over the odds. Everton seem to be the only club that don't ask for over the odds for players. Arteta was worth more than 10mil, played well for Arsenal this year. Rodwell worth more than 10mil. Compared to Henderson, Downing, Fletcher, Jarvis etc. Rodwell to me is better than those 4. I know Fletcher plays in different position.

Rodwell was / is constantly injured so 10m was a good fee in my opinion

 

Arteta was a steal for Arsenal, but also saved us a massive chunk off the wage bill and considering he hadnt played well for a quite a while at the time (mostly because he was being played in Fellis CDM position it seemed, and vice versa) 10m was probably about right.

If Arteta was playing for spurs before he joined the arsenal then there's no way he would have been let go for 10 million I would imagine it would have been more than double £10 million

Daniel Levvy would charge you for the ink used to sign the deal. Should be called Daniel Levy (see what I did there)

If Lukaku really was available for £10m I'd be gutted if we didn't get him. The kid has massive talent. Him and Guidetti both could be available this summer for a bargain. Chelsea may have paid a few quid for him, but they can afford to take a loss. Guidetti seems done at city. Either would make me very happy!

Please tell me in what universe you are living on to think lukaku would be 'available' to buy this summer anyway? Also 10 million, 10 million?? Chelsea bought him for 17 million 2 years ago he's virtually a younger drogba what would possess mourinho to sell him at all let alone at a loss of 7 million when you could sell him for much more if they did wanted to sell him which is unlikely. The best we could hope for is to get lukaku on loan for the season.

Why wouldn't he be in their first team thoughts? It's not as though their strikers last year were banging them in.

You would expect players like Lukaku at these wealthy clubs to be very much in the minds of the managers but they always seem to overlook what these younger lads have achieved and throw mega money on a big name. I can see that being the case at Chelsea regardless of what the media says.

 

I'm of the same thought as StevO that Lukaku and Guidetti would both be great players for us along with Vellios who will hopefully see more first team action under a new manager We could have three great young strikers who all bring something different to the mix..a very long shot I know but it is silly season :)

I totally agree with you here. It was the same story with Sturridge, I believe if he was there he could have got more goals than Torres. He is a good player the only thing I don't like about him is he is quite selfish at times but he is young and will learn.

 

Same with Lukaku, he might be banging the goals in at WBA but if Chelsea buy a big name player then he might as well pick which seat he is wanting on the bench and make it is home ;-)
