Do you really think nobody wanted Lukaku at that age with his goals at West Brom and Everton?

IIRC, Lukaku told his agent and Chelsea - "get a deal done with Everton, I won't talk to anyone else."

He most certainly did.  I read it in multiple media outlets at the time.  Of course, it was a harbinger for when he insisted on the United move (and nothing else).

Got it.  It didn't happen because you don't like him.

IIRC, some of the reporting (after he was signed) came from the Chelsea camp.

We can (and should) be looking at building a winning culture with a better dressing room than we have had.  Not feasible to just toss gobs of money at the biggest dickheads like Liverpool does.

OF COURSE he's a flop.  He's not willing to sacrifice his career and personal happiness in order to play in London!!111

No Zouma means Holgate as 3rd choice CB, and really fuckall behind him.  Assume that if a major signing like Mina needed time to adjust (and he HAS looked good in the South American Euros), then one imagines the same applies to whatever lesser depth option we may bring in this window.

Anyway when is that dreamboat going to appear in our new flash kit?

Seriously, he should run for Mayor when his playing days are over.  Who can say no to that face?

At least we have Jags off the books. 50k for an emergency option is steep. Granted we could say that about a lot of those

though our 4th CB...would be Schneiderlin if we don't sign Big Kurt!

Ahhh yeah - good point. Forgot we are that short.

That's why I hoped Jags would have a nice "farewell" season with us.  No big deal if we get Zouma in, but otherwise it gets a little itchy.
