Don't have one.
Good game from him, but his penalties are not good enough, even those he scores are not convincing, really needs to work on that.

If icardi didnt leave, lautaro would not be as important as now.
Now we know his quality, even when icardi is back lautaro is on par with icardi..

If icardi is single perhaps we should call him back :lol:

That's bullshit, Lukaku replaced icardi not lautaro, and lukaku was a disgrace tonight

Lautaro replaced Icardi directly last season.

Last season when we played with one striker, yes. Now we have two strikers. And bought lukaku in the summer when it was clear we were selling icardi. So yes, lukaku replaced Icardi

Conte doesnt use poacher in his formation. A target man and a roaming forward. So no direct replacement here, three different players with three different styles of play. We replace, if any, Icardi with two strikers.

It is totally true that Lautaro still ate bench if the drama didnt happen.

Icardi is a CF, Lukaku CF, lautaro SS, I don't know how you are getting caught up with this but I suppose anything to try make the inter had balls deal look better.

If the drama didn't happen last season, then yes odds are lautaro still ate bench. Not sure how that has any relevance to this though

I love how his highlight reel this season will have him banging in the goals while slipping and sliding all over the place :lol:

One aspect of his game that I am impressed with is the capacity to put his corpse in opposition to receive and control the ball when he's not facing the opponent goal. The way he moves his body, the reading, his placement, the way he then passes the ball : That's the sign of a player with a very high football IQ.

Good game by Lautaro indeed. But let's not talk about Icardi level yet. However his movement is very good, he just needs to stop falling so much easily. He has already built a reputation for himself and refs won't whistle to him nearly as always when should.

And he needs to get those penalties correct. He's young so he has plenty of time.

Icardi has missed quite a few penalties as wall, some crucial ones too. He did seem to improve in them last year except for that Empoli game.

Anyway, really happy for Lautaro. As long as he keeps playing like this, I'll have no complaints
He's making smarter decisions and overall improving by gsme. That was a really nice touch for the pass to Brozovic to open the counter on the 2nd goal too.

Penalty aside, another absolute monster of a game. More than anything else, he just looks like such a pain in the ass to play against.

I have a feeling that Lautaro will go in Braca next summer.

Depends on the new contract. If he 'stalls' the talks because Barca involvement, remember all the shady deals they've done, most recent Griezmann. Then Yes. 111M is nothing for Barca.

Hopefully we delete that clause ASAP.

I would sell him for 200m, anything less is a bargain for a striker with killer instinct, who is a hard worker, has great first touch, his dribbling doesnt look top notch but it is, just look at every defender he faces, he(defender) doesnt want to get too close to him cause he might make a fool out of him,good speed, good shooting, with both feet, and head, and he is young. 200m striker these days.

I love Lautaro as a player but people need to be more realistic. Griezmann 120m Felix 120m Ronaldo 100m Mbappe 180m but Lautaro is 200m? (deals which actually happened, not fantasy).

Don't turn this place to RnB or FM forum pls.

Griezmann is older, and overrated, Felix has shown nothing consistently, and wont ever score as many goals as Lautaro will, Mbappe was 2 years ago, the caps for transfers are raising, I wont even comment Ronaldo.

The point is, Im not making it a fantasy thing, I am just saying if we sell him for less it would be a good buy for the team we sell him to.
