Welcome! Can't wait for all the Cuck's posts. Let me get them out the way. Your trash. Conte wanted you to sabotage our finances. Its an inside job. Horrible first touch. Was aweful last season. Was overrated at Everton. He is obese as shit. Guy probably can't run with all that fat. Serie A is too defensive for a player with such a poor first touch. If we wanted a big forward we have Rannochia. WAYYYYY TOO MUCH MONEY. Thanks Marotta!

There is no correlation between age and quality of first touch.

Sorry to break the party but we will need so much luck and capability from Antonio 10+ M per year Conte to make this work.

Anyways welcome romelu I pray this shit works out and i hope our fans are patient with him and especially i wish for CN to be fucken quiet and put the racist shit away otherwise we might be in for a shit storm.

Also can we get his brother from lazio? Dude wont be worse than dalberto carlos and for some odd reason i would find it funny to see them play together.

Also can we stop to act like his first touch is absolute shit? yes there are youtube videos where he absolutely butchers it but there are just as many cases where he takes a high ball perfectly or where he shoots perfectly with his first touch.
Yes it s not his main strength but he s far from a disaster and i feel like his first touch got a lot worse as his confidence faded in his second year at manu. You ll also see that most of the gifs and videos of his horrible first touch are in a manu uniform.

Really, so a players first touch in his prime at age 26-27 is exactly as good when they are 36-37? Sorry, I just disagree.

Half of the top ten scorers the last 5/10 years had Average to below average first touches. (Immobile, Iaquinta, Piguain, Toni, Milik, Zapata, just to name a few of players with average first touches and similar builds) You are also severely underrating his first touch. (which is not the best, but far from God Aweful) My guess is your referring to some of his touches last season that made the YouTube rounds.

"Inter were the only club I wanted, because Inter is Not For Everyone. I’m here to bring the Nerazzurri back to the top." These were Lukaku’s first words as a Nerazzurri player.

I'm happy with the transfer though, I think he'll do well here.

I've never been a fan of Lukaku, not even during his time at Everton. It's a matter of taste. But even though I would have never signed him for my team, I've always failed to understand the acrimony with which people often talk about him. Is he the best striker in the world? Of course not. But there's acknowledging his technical limitations, and then there's trying to pass him off as a bum who only happened to get lucky more than 200 times so far in his career. His stint at United didn't pan out as expected, and he must take most of the blame for that. However, I suspect that the toxic environment and tactical cluelessness that has been plaguing United since Ferguson left might have played a part in his (and his teammates') failure to live up to expectations. We, as Inter fans, should know about it.

It is said that Conte had already tried to sign him twice in the past. Third time lucky, as you would say. Even though I'm not particularly fond of physical strikers, I realise the importance they may have in Conte's tactics. He likes his forwards to put constant pressure on the defenders so as to force them to commit turnovers in dangerous positions, thus exposing themselves to quick counterattacks. He also likes them to be quick in transition as he prefers a more direct and vertical approach with regards to tactics. Lukaku - at least his Evertonian version - fits the bill perfectly. Now it's up to Pintus to get him back into shape. As for Serie A's mythological tight defences, they didn't prevent two absolute lugs such as Petagna and Pavoletti from netting 16 goals each last season. I don't see why a clearly superior player like Lukaku should be cursed to fail.

Whether Conte will be able to get the best out of Lukaku is still to be seen, but let's at least give the big man a chance before we throw him under the bus...

Welcome Romelu and prove us all wrong!

I have a good feeling about this transfer, we got what we wanted and on our terms. Bravo Beppe for taking this opportunity after an average season and unproven manager, normally a striker like him costs much more!

Lukaku still has his best years ahead of him and he strongly wanted to come. I don`t see why he would not dominate Serie A given his characteristics - it`s not all about tight spaces. Conte plays more on the counter than Spalletti, and he will be able to use his power to force his way through opposite defenders. I`m sure he will prove doubters wrong.

Happy that Suning finally sent out a signal with regards to players as well, we start to look like we mean business.

Welcome Rom, good luck Lukakone!

Lukaku has not been on the pitch since June 11 when, thanks to his brace, Belgium defeated Scotland in the final European qualifying match before the summer break.

Because of it, Conte may ask Inter to organize an extra friendly match on the August 17th or 18th, a week before the official start of the season.

Man U wanted to get rid of him. You miss this fact. They didn't exposed that as Inter's management did with Icardi but it was quite obvious. 65mln + 10 more = 75mln which is only 8 below demanded 83mln by Edi.
Inter could have handled this smarter but it was clear from the beginning that Lukaku is our first and the only one target for the attack, so United kept firm to the very end.
In addition - nobody else was really interested in Lukaku.

Most people like to think in a rather binary way about this. I think these things don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

Icardi can be sold at a huge non profitable way, and we could be totally ripped off by the acquisition cost of Lukaku, but Lukaku can still be a somewhat decent player.

Basically, the financial aspect of these two intertwined deals have nothing to do with Lukaku’s ability, only the latter has a control over the expectation of his performance.

I dislike the financial dealing of swapping out Icardi for Lukaku for the net expense, but I still consider Lukaku as an useful addition.

Conversion rate of only 20.2%. You can't blame the United team for that tbh. That's on him.

Please someone refute me.

Actually, his conversion rate is in line or even slightly better than that of some of Serie A's most acclaimed forwards.

In the same time frame, in fact, Icardi scored 40 league goals in return for 174 shots, which leads to a 23% conversion rate. However, if you don't take into account the 11 penalties that helped him boost his stats (Lukaku never took a pk for United), his goal/shots ratio drops to 17%. I refuse to check the stats of any of our other players because I don't want to get depressed. :D
Taking a look at non-Inter players, last season's MVP (:lol:) Ronaldo scored 24 goals over 185 attempts (c.r. 12%, 11% w/o penalties), while the "gunslinger" Piatek got 23 goals out of his 120 shots (c.r. 19%, 17% w/o penalties).

This doesn't make Lukaku a better striker than them, but should at least dispel the myth that he's a lousy, extremely inaccurate striker. Especially considering that two of the three players I mentioned have little to no football talent besides the ability to shoot at goal.

Just for laughs, Messi and Mbappé fared a little better, boasting a conversion rate of 21% (19% w/o penalties) and 26% (25% w/o penalties) respectively.

Numbers dropped like this without the relevant context are meaningless. There isn't much proper data analysis on football to quantify quality unlike baseball which is a static sport and to an extent volleyball where there is no physical contact between teams.
All other sports will always sound like hipsters using these "advanced statistics" or even fancy basic ones such as goal/total shots aka conversion rate...

Man U wanted to get rid of him. You miss this fact. They didn't exposed that as Inter's management did with Icardi but it was quite obvious. 65mln + 10 more = 75mln which is only 8 below demanded 83mln by Edi.
Inter could have handled this smarter but it was clear from the beginning that Lukaku is our first and the only one target for the attack, so United kept firm to the very end.
In addition - nobody else was really interested in Lukaku.

What is paid now is 65M. We may add 10M with some conditions, which we don't know yet. The bonus may be paid, may be not. The demand was 83M, straight cash. So, as things stand it is 65M compared to 83M, it is 18M less. Paid in 5 years.

The neo-Inter's training with the Belgian Under-18s was therefore agreed: "I know their president well. If Romelu had not been authorized to practice here, then a call would have been enough and three minutes later we would have stopped training".

According to CdS his bonuses are tied to appearances, goals scored and trophies won. I don't like apperance- or goals scored -bonuses AT ALL. Specially appearance-based bonus is unbelievable, I don't get it.

I remember Zlatan criticizing the bonus models at Inter in one of his books. How he wanted that everyone would have just win-based bonuses and not that games played shit. I think it should be that way. Goals scored base bonus also can guide to wrong decision making in the games. Hopefully Lukaku won't get the penalty-taker role to get the bonus easier. He has the top scorer bonus there which is apparently a big bonus.

edit Also according to CdS his wages go like:
1 year: 6M
2 year: 7M
3-5 years: 8.5M

So first year is the cheapest, good as we need to pay the taxes fully till the end of this year. Then it's the reduced tax rate.

Whether this transfer fails or succeeds depends on what our demands of him are.

At the moment it looks as if he is here to be the focal point of our attack, be its leader and the team's main striker. For me that has disaster written all over it. Leaving the financial side away, which is a terrible deal on its own, he is a player I wouldn't mind having as a 2-3rd option in a 2 man attack. Next to a strong striker/finisher or next to someone who is fluid enough to drop deep and create his own scoring chances (so either Icardi or Dybala given our situation). Since we will very likely end up with Lautaro being his partner, it feels unfair to both.

I don't think many people would have complained, high price or not, if we signed this guy last season (let's assume his bad season was the one before that) and we had the same 3-5-2 formation in mind with a Icardi-Lautaro-Lukaku rotation everyone would be ecstatic. But reduce that to Lukaku-Lautaro-Eder and you see how things can change.

That's the major problem here. This guy is not a leading striker for a top team but he could be useful with an effective team in place.
The only thing that saves our season (ie make progress from last year) is to sign SMS and what will take us a leap ahead is to reduce Lukaku to a secondary offensive weapon which would be his best suited role.

- - - Updated - - -


Brehme, what do you say about SMS supposedly being more overrated and overpriced than Lukaku?

SMS is both overrated and overpriced. The big differences between the two though are:

(1) Lukaku already had a stint at a big club and the reports are he didn't have the right mentality to deal with the hyper focus and criticism. Strikers form dip and recover and strikers need to have really tough mentality at big clubs to succeed, overcome the dip in form and start back scoring and being relevant. It appears Lukaku really didn't do that well @ ManU. With SMS, he's never been at a big club so it's unknown how he will handle it mentally. So you are more willing to gamble on somebody who is unknown vs somebody who is known (in a bad way).

(2) SMS is technically proficient. There really are no technical or even tactical flaws in his game. The concern is consistency at a high level. For lukaku, there's technical and tactical limitations. It's my biggest issue with his price tbh.

(3) It's never to be underestimated but knowing a league matters. SMS knows the league and has had success in the league. Lukaku is 100% unknown in this league. It's like piguain in EPL. Played well in Spain and Italy. Looked out of pace in EPL. Not saying one league is better vs the other, but they style, how the train, how they play games....it matters. Not many players adapt at a very high level to the top leagues.

I cannot see any point of Brehme's comment and he lack of idea of any tactics what Conte has used in preseason. Have you even watched any our games?

Icardi is not the type of player who can play with striker partner. We saw that last season when Spaletti tried to put them together with Lautaro. They are too similar players. Maybe he could play with players like Lukaku, but he created this for him and he leaves.

Lukaku will create space for other players. Midfielders have more space between lines because this big fellow will take 2-3 defenders/midfielders to him. Also Lukaku is fast and likes to run through balls behind defenders. We saw those balls at preseason where Perisic runned for them, but he as we is a "winger" he drifted too much in the sides.

I am sorry to bash you like this, but i have been reading too much your "Icardi has been robbed" comments in forum, so your every point of view seems to my eye to be that no striker who we buy will be better than Icardi.

As you say that Icardi would be player who drop deep and create he's own changes shows that you didn't watch any Inter games last season or 2 seasons, because Icardi was not that type of player who drifted back. Some games he did that but we could see that he was not okey with dropping deep down and build the play up to the wingers (perisic, politano). We created more spaces to them by dictating the tempo by Brozo.

Lautaro showed really good movements all he's game what he played last season and was really clinical. We could see that Lautaro was not okey to play as single striker in the box with 3 defenders near him. He was not as lethal than Icardi was, but now when Lukaku shows up, i can see that creates so much space to Lautaro to be the striker / SS what we have been waiting him to be.

Brehme, what do you say about SMS supposedly being more overrated and overpriced than Lukaku?

SMS is not overrated. I'd say he's quite underrated but if he stays at an unmotivated Lazio side he will regress soon. This is his moment to leave and fulfill his potential.

But he too is overpriced.

Price is relative. It depends on how you value it and how you expect your investment to pay off.
Some players are quicker to repay their extravagant fee. Sign Lionel Messi for 100m and within 2 weeks you got your money back through crazy sponsor deals, overpriced corporate season tickets and shirt sales. And he may pay you dividends with on the field success as you will advance further in CL and could win the league. So more prize money, more ticket sales, more tv rights etc.

Milinkovic-Savic is overpriced because he does not offer that.

Romelu Lukaku is also overpriced because he does not offer that. And he also does not help us weaken a rival to value his overpriced fee with a different light.

As for Lukaku, he is moving to a tougher league for him, he has already taken the step up from his own Lazio situation but his career had more ups and downs, he didn't light up the world after going to Man Utd so we may very well have a player with a weak mentality here. It's not like Man Utd was terrible when he got there. They were on the rise and his transfer sort of coincided with hindering their success. Zlatan got injured and Sanchez was depressed of course whilst the rest of the team apart from Pogba and maybe De Gea were not up to the coach's standards so it is unfair to put any sort of blame on him, but the fact that he is not wanted by the coach because he cannot take up more than one specific role.

I mean looking at Lukaku, the best way to utilize him in Serie A is to have him against 3 man defences drifting out wide, dragging one of the midfielders and opening space for someone in the box. But unless we have someone who can score from crosses or have more than 3 bodies in the box, this offers us nothing much. Against 4 man defences that have designated DMs he will probably suffer closer to the box and our best use of him would be to attract bodies outside the area. But then you'll need at least two box-to-box midfielders, the 2nd forward + one wing back to be able to pull off an attack several times.

His usage is fairly limited as the main striker. Especially for a team like Inter that will only be counter attacking in small dosage during the season.

Icardi dropped deep couple of times in games, but the build up play what he offered was not even remotely good. He was and will be box player who wants ball's to the box by through ball or crosses.

Welcome and good luck, Lukakone.

This is a “declaration of intent” and a very meaningful signing that will be remembered for better or worse, in terms of image and not only.

After Felipe Melo, I have to go with another brilliant football mind in Bobo Vieri: “Lukaku? He's a beast and he can score 30 goals if he unleashes his full potential” (or shaves his beard like a bomber, I would have added taking the opportunity to combine standard etiquette and clever advertising).

With that being said, it's not easy to argue against those who doubt the Belgian and are skeptical.
There are wild beasts in Italy who are far less expensive, can fit a vertical style of play and score their decent amount of goals in the intricate Serie A jungle, like Andrea “Cinghialone” (Big Boar) Petagna.
And when he plays with his back to trees... I mean, with his back to goal, Petagna looks even more comfortable than Lukaku.
But I hope Conte will create a bit of grassland in the final third where our bison can run, do group and thrive.

Time for this polyglot and appearingly smart student of the game to be a presence and deliver in nerazzurro (or at least to bring Jay-Z to San Siro with a couple of sponsorships ready for Inter: thank you in advance).

I am partially biased because I have seen well enough of SMS exposing himself in NT. He is 24 and has been playing for Lazio for 4 years now, in terms of mentality it doesn't get more autopilot than that. Not going to contend for scudetto in a hundred years, but also not going to relegate. Every year CL is the goal but at the same time nobody scolds you or gives you the stink eye if you fail to qualify because everyone knows that there are objectively better clubs that meet the quota so you can't be blamed.

As a player he has pretty decent footballing qualities but his mentality and heart are garbage. The guy and his manager (one Mateja Kezman) are a pair of mercenaries only looking for the highest bid and salary, so don't be fooled. If he stays at Lazio after this mercato this just confirms what I'm saying even more, someone with a burning itch to win and compete will force a move one way or another.
Between him and Dybala I would go for Dybala anytime, and that's knowing that the little twink has his own fair share of flaws as well.

If he stays at Lazio after this mercato this just confirms what I'm saying even more, someone with a burning itch to win and compete will force a move one way or another.
Between him and Dybala I would go for Dybala anytime, and that's knowing that the little twink has his own fair share of flaws as well.

Which Mateja Kezman!? Is it the overrated striker from yesteryears who never lived up to his potential? If it is then wow :lol:

Just to be clear, about the SMS talk. Stanković has confirmed before June that we were enquiring about SMS. If it happens, than this is the biggest mercato we have ever done and we can contend with Juve and Napoli (even tho I believe our squad is not as good as those two)

If it happens that we get SMS and we send Gags the other way, that's pure awesomeness.

I also think that Icardi is a better finisher, and that both players have certain things they lack (Icardi being involved, Lukaku's first touch), but I don't think the difference between them is that huge. I was really impressed with Lukaku in Belgium's game against Brazil. I thought he really bullied Miranda and I rate Miranda highly as a defender. Lukaku generally lacks something against big teams, but he still has time to change that. Hopefully he scores a lot of goals for us.

brehme1989
09 Aug 19, 18:59
Lukaku's best characteristic is his finishing [and shooting] and he's inferior to Icardi in that. So there's no serious comparison between the two. Icardi's finishing is not even his best characteristic. Evading defenders is and moving on the correct lanes is. His finishing is elite of course, but those other two attributes he'd be rated 100 out of 100. He gets into good finishing situations often because of these two.

Being a big & strong body is always helpful but it's not really a football attribute and he cannot use it effectively to his advantage. Cassano and Del Piero for example were too small to be considered great at the box, but they were pretty good with their back to goal and very tough to snatch the ball off of. Lukaku seems incapable of these things but he can bully his way against some defenders due to sheer size. If he had learned how to do it he'd be on Drogba's level.

It's a pity because they'd complement each other in a way.

No, this is far from truth and 100 percent debatable. Lukakus outside shooting is better. Has a harder shot. Icardi may be a bit more clinical. (But this was not always the case. Pretty sure his shot percentage at Everton and first year of Man U was just fine)



So there's no serious comparison between the two. Icardi's finishing is not even his best characteristic. Evading defenders is and moving on the correct lanes is. His finishing is elite of course, but those other two attributes he'd be rated 100 out of 100. He gets into good finishing situations often because of these two.

I agree Icardi is good at these things. His great sense of awareness of when and where to run on the field are great. But guess what, he dug his own grave. So doesn't matter much. Your also underrating Lukakus ability to do the same. Lukaku knows how to run at spaces but does so in a much more physical way.


Being a big & strong body is always helpful but it's not really a football attribute and he cannot use it effectively to his advantage.
This is bullshit. Many large forwards including Lukaku have shown exactly how to use their builds effectively. Dumb statement.



Cassano and Del Piero for example were too small to be considered great at the box, but they were pretty good with their back to goal and very tough to snatch the ball off of. Lukaku seems incapable of these things but he can bully his way against some defenders due to sheer size. If he had learned how to do it he'd be on Drogba's level.

It's a pity because they'd complement each other in a way.

Lukaku too is hard to handle in the box as you said. You just pointed out two small players using certain skills to accomplish and excel despite their stature. Lukaku too is capable of bodying defenders, getting around them, burning them with speed and large strides. I mean, have you ever watched him play? The guy can move, can use strength, can dribble around players. Overall he is way more versatile to Icardi. Not only that, but he's way more important to Conte's system. I know that its all an inside job blah blah. Take your head out your ass.

There are also other strikers who did only 5-7 games for their national team which is the same amount of prencence that someone like Dario Benedetto had.

Let put in logic. When you buy a player for a big fee, your biggest concern is that, the player could flop. Not necessary because he is not quality, there are also other factors, how he adapt to the league, injuries, stability at that club and so on (Schevchenko at Chelsea, Bergkamp at Inter). So, I consider this is maybe the most important factor by a transfer: damage control, how fucked you are if the player flop?
We pay for Mario 40m. I would have preferred 30m with until 50m bonuses if he pan out. We would have been less fucked!

They should have had him invade Turin, wreaking havoc in the streets and leaving utter destruction in his wake as (the few) juve fans run for their lives.

The camera would then zoom in on his face, and he would utter the catchline "Not for everyone" with a smirk. The End.

Anyone who came into contact with Romelu Lukaku in his first week in Milan was surprised by the simplicity and by the fact that he already knows Italian very well. Friendly, polite and helpful to everyone, Romelu is confirming day after day all the good things were said about him before arriving at Malpensa. A gentle giant, with a contagious grin on his face, Lukaku has never hidden his happiness for this transfer to Italy, desired and chased for months. To achieve it, he had to break out of the traditional ways of doing things by forcing his hand with Manchester United to let him go. In both private and professional life, Lukaku is a very scrupulous person, attentive to everything. In short, he’s a perfectionist.

Yesterday, he spoke with Otro, a digital platform created by the best players around the world of which he is a member along with Messi, Neymar, James Rodriguez and Dybala but also to former great players of the past such as Beckham, Cantona and Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane. In a short clip, Romelu looked back at his first days as an Inter player: “Training sessions are very hard. It’s different. We work a lot in England but here, it’s real work,” said the Belgian with a huge smile. “The city? It’s beautiful but I’m not here to live, I’m here to help the team achieve something,” he added before closing with a joke about Italian cuisine. “Italian food? Salad.” And another laugh. That concept is extreme, of course. But it is true that Lukaku is very attentive to nutrition and as soon as he arrived at Pinetina, he had the opportunity to draw up meal plans with nutritionist Matteo Pincella. But he doesn’t have weight issue. His weight is all tied to muscle mass and losing weight for him would mean losing power. Better to avoid it, for him and for Inter.

The player’s home is currently at the Melia hotel in the San Siro area, a few steps away form the stadium that he has already immortalized in an Instagram story to share with his 4.7 million followers. And it is more or less the area that he has chosen to live. The apartments of his choice are not far in that area and in the City Life community, the new district of Milan’s skyscrapers. Romelu would like a newly built house, suited for his needs, which first of all must be spacious and bright. He spent last Saturday going around town to buy clothes and had dinner with a trusted person. During which, he demanded to watch Inter-Valencia on his mobile phone. His post of congratulating Politano for converting the penalty confirmed it. He then went around town seeing the Duomo, Sforzesco, Navigli and Bosco Verticale… all from his car window.

His days have been pretty non-eventful because he is trying to catch up athletically with his teammates. Waking up at 8:00 am, light breakfast, then off to Appiano Gentile with the car made available by the club. Lukaku spends almost all day at Pinetina, as Conte continues to insist on having double training session. He arrives one hour before morning session then has lunch, rests and then returns to hotel at around 8:00 pm. Big Rom will be presented next week, maybe not like the giant around the city like his welcome video indicates. But it will be an event because a star deserves one. Because Inter “are not for everyone” and neither is Lukaku.

Hmm, now that he's eating salad and is finally doing some "real work" at training after so many years, perhaps we'll see an improved version.
