Exactly. Because Mourinho will use it to fuel Lukaku and then Lukaku will go super saiyan against us.

Curva should just ignore.
This was not the case. If anything it seems that his confidence is ruined.
Saw that he failed to convert a PK. Don't recall the last time that happened officially (there was that time last season but then he retook it)
Romelu Lukaku failed to convert a penalty for the first time in his Serie A career after 14 successful attempts between Inter and Roma.

It is the first penalty Lukaku has failed to convert at club level since August 2017, when Manchester United were still able to beat Leicester City 2-0.

Finally his confidence is ruined. Not the horrible fans in EPL, not the Europa League final, not the CL final, only Inter fans could break the camels back. Good job, Dario, you are in the top100 of deduction for sure.

Last minute winner is as sweet as a trophy :D
Yeah can't blame the celebration there


Good win for Roma, we need them to put the pressure for CL spots.

I don't think they're good enough to compete for the CL spots. Both Napoli and Atalanta are far better.

That's another thing, which I agree but last minute winner is beautiful, no matter the opponent.
Exactly. It's like you get a lot of chances in a football match to score, while scoring after a frustrating 90 minutes can really be sweeter than peaches and cream

why are we still discussing this guy like he was Diego Milito?

He needed us more that we needed him, end of story.

I agree that Roma don't play particularly well, but Lukaku can still get you wins against quite a few Serie A teams. If they can keep Dybala fit, that helps even more.

Atalanta/Napoli are more fun to watch than Roma but not sure what to make of them yet. Atalanta are a fun team but I'm not sure where they will end up this season. If they get in good form, they have the ability to give most teams a hard time. At the same time, it feels there is always a chance of them dropping points in games you would expect them to win. Napoli under Garcia do not look as good as last season and there is some drama with Osimhen - at the same time, they have beaten most of the lower placed teams they've faced and Kvara/Osimhen in form can win you most games as well.

Keep in mind also that there is a chance that 5th placed Serie A team goes to CL. With the rule change, the two leagues with the best coefficient at the end of this season will get an extra spot (most likely EPL + one more league).

One player who failed to impress for Roma in their loss to Slavia Prague was Lukaku, who took just one shot and played only 11 passes, failing to make any major contributions as his team stumbled to defeat
La Gazzetta dello Sport highlighted Lukaku’s issues in the match, writing: “It’s true that he always played with his back to goal, but he has poor mobility and lost more balls than anyone (16).”

Corriere dello Sport also noted the Belgian striker’s isolation on the pitch, commenting: “Left alone so much. He did what he could, but he was too stubborn with the ball between his feet.”

Il Messaggero spoke about Lukaku’s on-pitch frustrations and failure to drive his team forward, saying: “He spent the first half arguing with his teammates, asking for a playable ball. The team’s score in the first 45 minutes (0 shots, corners and crosses) suggests he had a point. It must also be said, however, that of the few balls he received, he didn’t hold back one.”

Lukaku’s ratings in the Italian newspapers

Gazzetta dello Sport: 5.5

Tuttosport: 5.5

Corriere dello Sport: 5

Il Messaggero: 5
Lukaku fails to deliver when it matters the most.
