Well, Romelu, the grass isn't always greener on the other side (unless of course they broadcast the image after modifying the source feed color, which makes the grass seem more vibrant).

Poor Lukaku has come full circle in getting insulted and ridiculed by everyone in the EPL again. My guy should have never left. On the other hand though, those 100m 😋

1. We didn't pay 115m for any of those players
2. They don't make half the salary he's making
3. Noone here or they themselves ver claimed that they are top 5 striker in the world.
4. We all know forwards are our weakest link

Sure he’s underperforming but he’s being used as a target man at Chelsea. It makes no sense to use Lukaku as a central non moving focal point, his ball control and hold up play is not good enough under pressure in central areas. They may as well have kept Giroud if they wanted to keep playing that way. Lukaku needs to have space and as such begin from wide areas where he’ll have more of that to use his speed and also his crossing which is severely underrated. Conte when he was a pundit on Sky Italia said like 3 months aga that Chelsea were using him wrongly and he was right

The system Chelsea is using him in isn't all that different from how Belgium uses him.

Maybe he thought everyone over there was aware of what a big achievement it was what he did at Inter, but they're the CL winners, playing in arguably the best league in the world, so no one gives a shit over there about Serie A or Inter. Maybe.

And if true, he should have known ffs, he HIMSELF left Inter for Chelsea :palm:

I still love the guy & I'm sad cuz I don't see how is he going to turn this around

System on paper may not be different but his role is. At Belgium De Bruyne begins on RW, he has the freedom to drift inside, Lukaku has the complete freedom to drift to the wide areas. Roberto Martinez was the first at Everton to even use him as a RW

Think Tuchel doesn’t fancy Lukaku and Lukaku knows it. But Lukaku is Chelsea’s best striker or Forward.

Tuchel should take most of the blame for the loss against City, instead of pointing the finger. Thought Lukaku was actually one of their best performers, which indicates how poor they were.

must say the comments from Chelsea fans are funny to read...
I guess it is a fault of their management and Tuchel as well. You either play Lukaku the way he can perform or you don't buy him at all.
2 things are obvious:
1, Lukaku isn't happy with Tuchel => his confidence is low => he playes shit
2, Tuchel is not happy with Lukaku => he put pressure on Lukaku, which makes Lukaku unhappy even more....

Chelsea have a funny question to answer. Question worth more than 100mil, lol

You've just highlighted why selling him after Conte left was the right thing to do. And why selling Hakimi was a terrible mistake, since it could have been avoided.

Yes, it was. But selling Hakimi was probably not a mistake by that time. Either they didn't know Lukaku will leave (and for that big amount of money) or it was just the excuse and they needed the money anyway.
Management said, that they didn't need to sell Lukaku, but they also haven't reinvested the money. Either they were suprised by that move and didn't want to panic buy or they needed the money.

That is fucking Suning had to do as soon as possible. They must sell Hakimi because Suning fucking debt.

and our management promise not to sell anyone after that.

Then fucking Suning accept Chelsea offer, Marotta already said Lukaku is not for sale, but Suning is fucking need that money.

Marotta is the best football director in the world. He already stated only sell Hakimi, because in Marotta eye Lukaku more vital than Hakimi at that moment.

Plus only Hakimi had nice offer from other teams such as PSG and Chelsea at that time.
