Lukaku's interview


http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/romelu-lukaku-everton-frustration-signings-12747512


Don't see anything wrong with what he's said, in fact it seems as though it's a:

"show me the ambition and I'll sign" rather than "I want out"

Yeah, very positive.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I don't agree with him. I expect us to sign better players then the ones he thinks we may have missed out on. And we're may not have wanted them. Gabbiadini for example is talented but was well known as a bit flaky. I expect him to drop off after a while but we will see. Perez? Hardly set the world alight. But this narrative fits what Koeman was saying at the end of last summer. This could be mutually beneficial arrangement between Rom and Ron if they both knew he was leaving this summer way back in September.

The only thing I disagree with there is the comparison to what happened at City. Those were different times, before the money explosion from TV, before FFP. He's ambitious - good. He actually wants what we crave, signings and the future to be part of winning, legendary teams

Have zero problem with what he said at all. Hopefully it lights a fire under the board's ass to make things happen this summer to keep him around. Need to show ambition. He has no ties to us so why would he stick around for a 10 year project. I'd do the same if I was him.

Only thing that has me confused is he doesn't know the boards plans. Thought the project was well known.

He's employed to play football, the board is there to make decisions on behalf of the club, it's not Lukaku's job to quiz the board, buy players nor pick the team. He should do his job to the best of his ability which he does and leave the rest to others within the club.

Rough translation:I'm boss, everyone else in the team is shite. Why didn't we sign Gabbiadini?

Well if that is your interpretation , I would love your take on the bible or quran

Yeah...I'd expect a bit of buzz around the changies but obviously not.

Why should Lukaku be informed of all the boards plans? We pay him to score a fuckton of goals, not be well informed on what carat gold Moshisi shitter is going to be plated at the Bramley Dock Megadome.

Well I don't imagine he asks for regular updates. But when contract renewal time comes around, he's going to ask about the plans like any top player would who wants to win things. And we should be selling it to him, the way clubs who want to keep their best players do.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.
