This kind of symbolises the feeling around the club at the moment. Whether it's true or not people around the club can see it's just drifting. Best young players/agents wanting them out, manager delivering boring football, talk of takeovers which don't go anywhere, ground moves that don't seem to go anywhere, boos at home games, listless performances... Who could blame Lukaku, really, for wanting out.
The flip side is it could all be so different. We have the best squad in a generation and we could be lighting up the Premier League, which in turn inspires a buzz around the club and then things start to happen off the picth, with the increased positive exposure. I know it's been said on another topic but the man in the centre of all this who can be instrumental in it going either way is Martinez. Massive next half a dozen games.
