Can you clarify who you mean, also does it matter what stage of the CL? I can imagine you haters will be like "but he did not score in the semi final" then "oh but it wasnt a final" then "oh by chelsea were already winning" then "oh he didnt do that for us" then "oh but did you see he missed 3 shots" then "oh he contributed nothing and his goal meant nothing"

The clarification part I'd actually like answered, stages and teams that count and any goal scenarios, in advance. I think anyone who doesn't consider Lukaku world class is just clueless, we all entitled to our opinions of course :)
It’s funny because you just generalize people who criticize Lukaku into 1 category lmao because I never use those excuses. Fact is Lukaku was shit in CL for us , couldn’t score a single goal against Shaktar when we needed it the most, he couldn’t finish a one on one situation against Sevilla when we needed it the most and he couldn’t do shit against Italy when he was spoon fed missing a header and a tap in (unless you consider Spina’s block a miraculous one). It’s a well known fact that he chokes when it matters and he’s great against smaller minions which is how he helped us win the league. Dude left already, so forget about him lmao
But you are right, everyone is entitled to their own opinion; they are entitled to cherish any player they want.

That's his bread and butter. Kinda similar to Ibrahimovic.


Yeah, but Ibra really scored against everybody in (any) league. Not being a boss in CL is where they are similar, but even what Lukaku does is actually impressive, let alone what prime Ibra was doing.

Lukaku 'only scoring against smaller clubs' doesn't really mean much. He's still doing it. Imagine he is playing for a club you own. Any player that can guarantee goals against most clubs is worth more than players that scored a few clutch goals but doesn't really have huge numbers.

He did score an amazing goal vs ACM (was it in February?) in what was probably the most important victory in the title race. Vs on of the best GKs around. And assisted for the first goal.

He's not a choker, he's just not the best there is at every given moment, but far from choker. He would have missed at least one penalty if he was one.

Not every moment, but the most important moments makes him a choker, also penalties are a different case, some of the best players in history were clutch in specific moments missed important penalties in various tournaments.

EL Final, the CL group stages and with Belgium in the WC and Euros.

In the Serie A win he contributed a lot but it was a whole team effort, because he could have scored 30 goals and still Inter could have finished 2nd had the team not performed up to par.

100% agree that the title was a team effort. Probably 12 or 13 players effectively contributed imo

I am glad to see him doing well, especially to shut up the folks on this very forum who attributed his incredible success with us purely to Conte.

In the form of his life. How is this possible, no Conte and on his way down from the "peak" he was on.
I think Lukaku just learned how to play football properly. Or more presicely, how to use his strengths.

Typical performance against a good team. In the first half Chelsea had a decent counter and he had the chance to put Werner through on goal with a through pass between the defenders and completely botched it.
