Lukaku coming back and sitting next to Ausilio and Beppe justlike Bonucci did after Milan transfer and back. To watch Dzeko scoring.

Get the corns ready!!!

The only thing I take from his comments which I and many of us live every day, is having Inter in our hearts.

Inter are an unforgettable club and no apology, amount of money or going to the last season’s Champions League winners is going to change that.

Unfortunately for Lukaku, he realised it too late.

The grass is not always greener.

To the frustrated Chelsea fan reading...

No refunds.
Speaking of Chelsea fans, i love they're blaming the quotes on interview timing (Chelsea court reporter rushed to inform public it was done 3 weeks ago) and Fabrizio's "poor" translation. :lol:

Don't want this idiot back here at any cost, even if 50% of his salary goes into my account. He has a big mouth and he's gonna fuck up our gameplay pretty bad. No thanks. Don't even think about it Zhang.

Now he just comes off as a pathetic glory hunter. Stay where you are boy. If I weren't too lazy to change my pfp and fave player you'd be gone. I'm sure that keeps you up at night.

Yeah Matt Law and Kristoff Teurrer said the interview was done 3 weeks ago and Tuchel and Lukaku have cleared the air between themselves already. So it's not like this shit blew to Tuchel's face today.

Don't have one.

Those kinds of comments don't mean shit coming from him. In fact, given his history of similar stuff with previous clubs and current one, it's fucking laughable. He should be considered a proper clown when it comes to any sort of integrity, and him blabing his mouth about tuchel and chelsea not even halfway into the season is further proof of that.

😂 this guy is a fucking clown! Just exacerbated a situation that was already difficult for him. He’ll schedule another PR interview just to fix this mess but the Chelsea faithful won’t forget this shit 😂 Yo I keep saying we got lucky with his sale and at the right time too! The only thing I miss are his penalties 😭

Told you guys it’s downhill from here for this dude. Only thing that pissed me off after his sale is we didn’t jump on Vlahovic immediately.

Cool. Just wanted some clarity. Looking forward to the results!

This is fairly basic stuff.

All "vital" goals are not equal. "Winning" goals is nothing important, it's just to classify some goals as the final goals that separated the game. A 2-0 goal doesn't qualify for example, since the winning goal would have been the 1-0. With Lukaku I think all of his winning goals were PKs.

As I said earlier, if I were to do this more professionally, I'd assign several metrics and do case-by-case evaluations. For example, several of Lukaku's 'vital' goals came at the dying minutes of a game we were leading, but since this is standardized everything is equal. Making it 3-1 on the 90th minute when the opposition appears to have given up should not be the same as making it 2-0 at the beginning of the second half, killing any momentum the opposition would have going etc.
Also, "low effect" goals include goals scored after a 2 goal lead or goals scored to reduce the deficit up to 2 goals. So in a 1-4 situation where the score becomes 2-4, it's still a low effect goal. There was a case with Kane vs Bayern iirc there which this applied. It also applied with Immobil in a situation where Lazio went from 0-3 to 3-3. Clearly that goal was more valuable than Kane's after all, since it enabled a comeback that gained Lazio a point. But once again, this is standardized so it's not going to be seen there.
Oh, and Lewandowski and Bayern score a shitload of goals and have large margins, so it's rather awkward to compare him with everyone else :lol: He's had as many 'low impact' goals as others have scored in an entire season, reminds me of Cristiano at Real Madrid, whose stats should look similar.

P.S: I couldn't be bothered to add both 'vital' and 'winning' goals together, so you can just see the low effect% or add them together if you don't like the one that excludes already included PKs.

Who cares about charts.
so happy when he lefts inter . Guy is best in system where everybody works for him and that system is overrated and flowed. That is why he sucks against big teams because other big teams have as good or better players then inter. So he either have to create chance for himself or others and he can not lol.

Can we do a poll on whether we'd want to take him back on free loan? Interested to see the results, my guess is no, which I never would have believed 4 months ago.

Lukaku is pretty in line then with the average for vital goals?

Ibra on 100% vital goals is both just batshit, and goes to show how ass Milan are. That's a really interesting chart Brehme, thanks for putting that together.

On Lukaku, big fat meh. Just say you wanted to leave earlier and we could have kept Hakimi, that's the only thing that leaves me furious.

The official story is that Lukaku didn't want to leave until Chelsea came into the picture, which was way after Hakimi left.

IIRC in a recent interview Skriniar talked about how Lukaku said he would leave if the right offer came along. Could be wrong.

I dont think we'dd have kept Hakimi eitiher, realistically. We needed to reinvest money into a forward, and Hakimi's 80mil transfer out was still higher than our discretionary spend last summer (e.g. excluding Vanheusden where we exercised our option?)
