I’ve seen a lot of people on here in the last few days saying that Lukaku isn’t good enough to play for us, it’s something I strongly disagree with.

He’s only 20 and in my opinion has a very good scoring record so far.

Last year playing for West Brom he scored 17 goals in 38 games, I’d say that’s pretty impressive for an 18/19 year old. This season he’s scored 9 goals in 20 appearances for Everton, so he’s averaging almost a goal every 2 games which in my opinion is pretty good.

A lot of world class strikers have come over here much later in their careers and haven’t settled in anywhere near as quickly. A lot of people say he’s not as good as Drogba. Didier Drogba was 26 when he joined Chelsea over 5 years older than Lukaku is now.

He is nowhere near as good as Drogba is, his passing needs improving as does his overall game, but by the time he’s 26 he could be as good as Drogba if not better. He needs time to develop and he will improve when he comes back to us, training with the best manager and world class player`s day in day out will improve his game greatly and we will see a much improved Lukaku.
