    For a guy as tall and heavy (I know it's not fat) as him, I'd say he doesn't really do a great job. He actually often gets bullied by the opponents defender, Colley against Sampdoria, Koulibaly against Naples, Chiriches against Sassuolo. He doesn't win a lot of balls in the air. The only time where you can see that he is a bulky player is when he receives the ball with his back to the goal.

    But that's not my issue with Lukaku. My issue is when in your team you have people that run a lot, like Brozovic, Barella, Eriksen, Lautaro or Candreva, the amount of casual walking Lukaku does, hurts my eyes. He doesn't press, the only moment where he runs is when he wants to receive the ball. He never fights to win it back, in this case I prefer Lautaro and Sanchez' style of attackers because those are the one that make the team look dangerous when pressing.

    I feel like he gets kicked to shit in most games and because of his size refs don't whistle for it. Chiriches was the worst offender, but Koulibaly had to literally drag him to the floor before a foul was given.

    His lack of running might have something to do with him playing every game and never being subbed off

    Maybe , maybe not. If it was about him being tired at least for the first minutes you'd see him try and press. But you never see him do that.

    But man, when we win the ball back he is always the first to want it in his feetI obviously agree, Conte should bench him sometimes and sub him off every once in a while.

    I agree, Lukaku waves his hands after every pass that is not directly assisted at his feet, rolls his eyes, etc...his body language is in my opinion very demoralizing.
    Maybe Conte has given him to much confidence, power and as a result he feels entitled to throw his little trantrums all over the pitch.

    I didn't use to watch him at ManU so I don't know if it's a new behaviour from him.
    I don't know how his teammates feel about it either but I'd say that one Brozovic getting pissed off easily is way enough.

    I think he was like that at Man United too
    And yes, it does remind me of Brozovic sometimes.

    It's good to be critical but most of the time you're overreacting, he tried, shoot wasn't perfect but still lead to incredible miss from Gagliardini.

    It's difficult to play for our strikers with Gagliardini and Borja behind them plus Moses - Biraghi on flanks. They're relegation zone level of players and theyre making out strikers and central defenders look terrible.

    Would you make your heaviest striker run after a fucking ball to press when you have El Toro who can do that? The logic you use is the definition of retardation.

    Damn you are so smart.

    So big brain, tell me. Is Lautaro supposed to be the only one pressing? A whole backline of 3 , 4 or 5 players? Or is the team supposed to be pressing coherently? Especially when we are trying to score goals to secure the game?

    You think it's OK to have a player walk when the ball passes by him?

    Have you never seen Barella or Brozovic run forward and do the work Lukaku should do?

    Explain like I'm 5 because you're definitely too smart for me.

    He should have an easy outing today against Parma given the type of defenders they have. Hopefully he's more helpful than usual.

    He tries too many tricks he can't pull off. He needs to realize he is not the football equivalent of magic Johnson. In fact, he's very far from it.

    I’m far from satisfied with Lukaku so far this season, expected more from him. However, must be said its nice to have a very strong striker, something Icardi wasnt.

    I think he was our starter today by far. I didn't like him the first few months, but he's growing on me.

    Sanchez is obviously not fit for 90 minutes. He likely will get 30 minutes every game till the end of season.

    It's insane that we don't have a proper substitute for him. He shouldn't have to play against Brescia.
