Yes, Rom backed himself into a corner with the " Everton is no an option " comment. He would look awfully foolish if he stayed now wouldn't he.

I actually hope he does now ...so he can wonder what might of been playing with our new class players, while sitting on the bench next year somewhere after one of his many off days .

Think he'll have the same problem as last year, whether another club will stump up the money.

For all his comments and antics, Lukaku still doesn't seem to realise Everton are in charge of his future.

Well, yes, but if Chelsea fail to meet our demands, there's absolutely nothing he can do.

No for me. It's obviously not just press speculation though. It's lukaku who's speculating

Think he will get his Chelsea move eventually but maybe quite late on in the window

Think things will work out ok for us regardless of what he decides to do

I think the club is following the Spurs/Bale model, presumably to keep buying prices down then paying them off with as much as we can squeeze out of Chelsea. I suspect his comments lately are because he knows it will get done and the club have told him he can leave.

Seeing the money we're spending and the players we're after makes me quite happy if we sell him. If we can get a striker or two that will chip in 20-25 goals between them and a some scoring midfielders then there's no reason why we should miss him, in fact it would be a benefit not to be so reliant on one player.

He was given a lot of slack in the past with his comments but I think it's getting to the stage people have had their fill of it now, especially after his comment about returning here not being an option. The fee could be the problem, that and the possibility that managers at top clubs don't rate him as highly as he does. The fact that Raiola has been fairly quite so far would suggest that things aren't quite going to plan behind the scenes. There will probably be a domino affect where one big deal will trigger several others but if he's here next season I hope he doesn't get automatic first choice and has to fight for his place.

Would've liked an option between 'certainty' and 'press speculation'. Summat like 'probably, yes' reflects my feelings.

Would love to keep him but we haven't pushed on enough in that time to dovetail with his growth as a player.

He was Trolling Moshiri, He wanted Mosh to put his money where his mouth is...

i've read that interview, but never seen it on video, maybe his words where lost in translation again, either way, cant see him going anywhere.

This summer just feels like a new dawn and much as he is a great player I just feel now is a perfect time for him to go.

We're building for a bright future it seems and it's one he's made clear he doesn't want to be a part of.

It would be amazing if he stayed - for two reasons:

1) It is massively unlikely

2) I would predict that we would be genuine top-4 contenders by the end of this window if he stayed!

Hate the term off-season. So American.

I think he will leave in this transfer window.
Title: Re: Will Lukaku actually leave this off season?
Post by: Ross on July 03, 2017, 05:06:08 AM
I think it's inevitable.

Not convinced it's to his beloved Chelsea though.

We need a cleanse now of Lukaku publically using us as a stepping stone if we are ambitious about challenging the top teams.

Think it's a stand off, spaghetti western scenario at the moment. Chelsea (maybe others) are waiting to see if the price drops. The more we build, the more we need to sell him and the less important he becomes. We could even paint ourselves into a corner where we need to sell him. Personally I hope he stays because he is class and that's what we need to step up at least one level.

100% gone imo.

It really is a shame Moshiri, Koeman and Walsh came a year or two too late. Imagine if we could have invested £90m on a team around Lukaku and stones instead of replacing them.

But, life goes on and I'm looking forward to seeing whoelse we bring in. As I say, convinced we'll still look to bring in a pacey wide forward after the Keita deal didn't work out.

So top 4 by September?

Love your first reason though, surprises are more interesting

I'd have been happy if someone had told me we would have signed who we have by the end of the window, let alone by the beginning of July. With more to come (?) then if Rom doesn't go we'll have some team next year!! Can't wait either way.  😊

He either stays with us:  or fucks off. We're getting big. "So fucking what"! See ya you big like bolasie says. Fuck off, or play for us. It's only footy.  But it's blue.

That's Everton for you. If you don't like it? I don't think you're Evertonians.

Post by: Evertonian in NC on July 03, 2017, 07:13:00 AM
1) I think the only two options left are Chelsea or Everton

2) I strongly suspect we've set some bottom line numbers for them, along with a fairly strict timeline (this week, possibly next)

3) I would place the odds at Chelsea 70%, Everton 30% at present.

I think he'll go, but quite possibly not until the season has already started.

I'd much rather he achieved his ambitions with us though, highly unlikely as that is.

I don't think he would be so clear about it unless he knew something. Would be great if he stayed for another year with the likes of Sandro and Klaassen providing for him, but it looks dead on he is going to Chelsea.
Title: Re: Will Lukaku actually leave this off season?
Post by: mikey_blue on July 03, 2017, 01:47:24 PM
I think he'll go.

I've never been that arsed by the media attention that he gets or his ambition to leave and move onto a bigger club. Too be honest, I found the attitude and honesty quite refreshing. Over time  though, he's began to get on my tits, and it's went from being ambitious to a bit disrespectful.

I'll miss the goals and having a striker that can flip the game on it's head, but if we use the money we make on him and invest it around the squad wisely, then I think both parties can be happy.
Title: Re: Will Lukaku actually leave this off season?
Post by: ajax_andy on July 03, 2017, 02:35:20 PM
Already gone IMO.

Chelsea don't want it announced until their new kit deal is in place.

Everton don't want it announced until we've spent the money or his fee will drive up prices of the players we are buying.

I don't believe we'd be spending this big if we'd not already agreed to sell him.

It's pretty obvious that he's going, just hope it gets done quickly, don't want this to drag out for weeks, does nobody any favours.

Will he be at Finch Farm for the start of pre season training today?

Post by: Waltzer on July 03, 2017, 05:07:23 PM
No player is loyal, hes just more vocal than others. The fact is without him our chances of top 4 diminish loads. He is our most important player so we should be doing everything to convince him to stay.
I just hope some of our recent transfer activity is enough to convince him that were going places and makes him stick around, at least for 1 more year.
Title: Re: Will Lukaku actually leave this off season?
Post by: gizzblue on July 03, 2017, 10:53:47 PM
No player is loyal you say ....Baines ,Coleman  would both bag to differ ...both courted by alleged bigger clubs both stayed loyal ....and imho playing a team game, in stead of lumping it up to lukaku and his bouncy castle first touch ,should ensure we are a bigger threat going forward ....if he had more about him the 12 games against the top six would have been more fruitful for us ....i look forward to us moving on without him as a  team and not a one big ego man band.

Post by: Robioto on July 03, 2017, 10:57:40 PM
What annoys me is that he could have gone quietly. But instead of remembering Lukaku as a great goalscorer who gave his all for the club, I will remember him as a great player who was a bit of a loudmouth dick and didn't always give Everton everything he had or have full respect for the fans.

If he aspires to be one of the best in the world I think this attitude alone means he may not have his head in the right place to do so.

I know football has changed but that doesn't mean players shouldn't respect thier employers.
