10 years of FIF
There's neither a top performance nor a major fuckup from him so far so there's nothing really new to discuss. Decent start in his new stint at Inter but it's clear the guy still needs time.Interesting how dead now his thread is... It's like no one wants to argue about anything cause we know him well and there is no point arguing anymore
and that is exacly why dzeko works in europe and lukaku does not people in europe or top team serie a are more afraid of dzeko then lukaku. in europe unlike italy people do not put that much enphasis into big guy beating defense, no defence is scared of lukaku type of player but benzema lewa for sureLukaku strikes fear into defence and this is exactly an upgrade we need from the last season. The first goal was the concrete testament. Watch how Spezia hesitated to press forward because Lukaku could exploit the space behind. You can see Spezia number 14 was marking Lautaro, but when Barella played long ball to Lukaku, he scrambled behind and lost focus marking Lautaro. This is so different with Dzeko at the third goal. See how the defenders were more relaxed chasing Dzeko because they knew they could catch up the dead man walking anythime.
Yeah but they play on that tiny Olimpico pitch so the games always seem tight there.We haven't really seen any chances for him yet to get the ball in space with room to run. Lazio tends to play a more open style. I'm hoping Lukaku has a bit more room to operate on Friday.
I think it's generally agreed to follow the 105x68 dimensions at the top division. I think Napoli used to have a larger one than average and they were forced to change or something.I think no. There are some requirements, but it is not fixed to only one particular dimension as far as I know.
Apparently you are right. I've checked couple of stadiums and the field dimensions is 105 x 68.I think it's generally agreed to follow the 105x68 dimensions at the top division. I think Napoli used to have a larger one than average and they were forced to change or something.
It just looks smaller due to the size of stadiums or the closeness of the stands.
Would be interesting to see if there are still differences. If there's a list someone post it on the Serie A thread please.

Lukaku was quite similar to the present one, when he came from Man U. He was fat, slow and looked always tired, just like now.Really nothing new to discuss? I don't remember Lukaku ever playing like this under Conte. He participated with our attacking movements, received and distributed the ball well, made runs to create space for others and also tried to press a little bit. He's no longer the end point in our attack, and it's quite a surprise that he did well.
That's said, it's Spezia so can't say if he will be able to play like this regularly.
