Lukaku: “I owe Everton so much”

Romelu Lukaku believes he owes Everton ‘so much’ for giving him a chance.

The striker, who scored 87 times across two spells at Everton left the Blues for Manchester United in 2017 with the Red Devils paying a fee of £75m.

Via Instagram, Lukaku explained: “Looking back I owe that club so much they gave me a chance and believe at 20 years old and I truly enjoyed my time there. The fans are amazing and it was a pleasure to play for such great club”.

  1. Don’t forget when we came 7th we still would of been 7th if he hadn’t of scored a single goal!!

  2. He’s fantastic but I’d prefer Lautaro Martinez if we’re going to raid inter. Not that we are.

  3. Id take him back but only if in the contract we stipulated that his dad didnt come anywhere near the club and couldn’t take about him…

  4. Sometimes his first touch and close control was an abomination.

    But an absolute goal machine. Welcome back Rom.

  5. He was an annoying mouthy nob when here regardless of what he did on the pitch. He can go rot his career away in Italy now.

    Nice of him to say so…didn’t come accross like that when he was here though…especially on international duty.
    Maybe ‘the grass isn’t always greener’ penny has…as it often does, belatedly dropped

  7. Also I’ve just looked, Lukaku has more or less a 1 in 2 goal record, we could do with that here. I could see the board stumping up the money, it would just depend on if he wanted to come back, usually former players always speak well about there time at Everton.

  8. Are we starting to look like a good proposition for him now, when he’s done in Italy? I could see him coming back, bu5 it would have to be soon, as I don’t want a repeat for the Rooney coming back when he’s more or less done.

  12. Easily the best goal scorer, but also the laziest player we’ve had in the past decade. I remember a lot of walking and pointing. The midfield would hustle and the win the ball back, but couldn’t do much with it, because Rom would be walking back from the previous play/miss, and be miles offside.

  13. [QUOTE=”PhilM, post: 7539052, member: 26411″]
    Technically he wasn’t the best player, however he’s quite easily the best goal scorer we’ve had in the past few decades and it’s hard to argue otherwise.

    ^^^ This. Did he EVER turn up in any big game?

    I remember coming home from that semi on a coach filled with retards screaming for Martinez blood, totally oblivious to the fact that big dope spunked 4 clear cut chances & a penalty.

    If Carlo wants him, I’d get behind it. I doubt he does though.

  21. [QUOTE=”PhilM, post: 7539108, member: 26411″]
    Absolutely. If he was one-on-one with the keeper, I expected him to score pretty much every time and I was shocked if he didn’t.

    It’s easy for people to mention his touch and love of goals against the lesser clubs rather than the best, yet an almost one-in-two goal rate speaks for itself.
    [/QUOTE]

    He did score against decent sides tho , scored 13 goals against rs, city, Spurs , Chelsea and Arsenal when he was here

    These sort of comments will always persist due to constant rumours about him wanting to move on from Goodison.If when he wants to get out of Italy would welcome him back no problem.Donkey what an absurd comment given his goal record here.
    [/QUOTE]

    It is an opinion I have held throughout his best scoring seasons for us, and before he ran grassing to the Belgian press. I haven’t rated him for a long time and reckon you can’t build anything around a striker who is deficient in almost every area of his game apart from scoring goals

  23. [QUOTE=”davek, post: 7539595, member: 1745″]
    Lukaku: handed us great service. He came back here and got undeserved stick first game at Goodison and reacted.

    He’d never come back here anyway. And I dont blame him either. The nobhead who owns this club claimed his mother practiced voodoo.

  25. A very gracious post reflecting on his career as the decade is about to end.

    Having read the Ancelotti fitness team thread from last week, I think our current managerial set up would get the most out of him if he were to come back. I don’t see it happening but never say never …

  26. If fans think hes pleading to come back then he must be pleading with all of his old clubs then as he mentions them all.

    Anyway, I’d happily have the arrogant sod back here, but he’s plainly angling for a move back to the Baggies, so I think we just have to accept his decision and move on.

  49. I owe so much to an ex employer from many years agos doing block paving. He gave me a good work ethic and made me appreciate where I am now looking back.

    Having said that, he was a horrible s*** and paid me the mimimum wage and even kept the beer we used to get given over Xmas.

    I definately wouldn’t go back.

  50. After the disaster show at United I’m sure it put things into perspective for him. The grass isn’t always greener.

  51. Probably bored in Serie A. Wants to join Carlo’s revolution. Imagine Lukaku under Ancelotti’s tutelage.

  52. I admired his honesty he never shied away from the fact he was ambitious and in that regard always expected him to leave plus I don’t recall him really ripping into us as a club.and reckon he would have stayed if we had a team to match his ambition.

    Don’t know if true but wasn’t it reported he said we should be aiming for the title not just top 4 during Bobby’s storming first season and Jagielka started laughing – can you imagine what he thought.

    Understood why he left. And at that fee, pretty good business by us. He could have handled the exit differently, but he was still a kid.

    To be fair, it’s just off his Instagram post were he has something to say about every club that he’s been apart over the last decade

    Did Rom just essentially do a “come and get me”?

    No.

    Yes, just what we need against City and Liverpool – playing with 10 men.

    Sidibe picking Roms head out of the box, Bernard and Richarlason creating space for Lukaku to plant his ass in the 6 yard box and tap the ball in, if only we had a natural scorer like Lukaku again

    I think us booing the crap out of him probably didn’t help like

    Get him a forward pass and he’ll do the rest.

    Absolutely. If he was one-on-one with the keeper, I expected him to score pretty much every time and I was shocked if he didn’t.

    It’s easy for people to mention his touch and love of goals against the lesser clubs rather than the best, yet an almost one-in-two goal rate speaks for itself.

  96. The lads on toffee tv were saying he wants out of italy because of the racism. Maybe this is him extending an olive branch for a possible return to the pl?

    You’re right, all we need is to get someone with good link up play and to share the goals around the team.

    And why go out and spend a huge sum on Lukaku when we’ve already got Cenk Tosun?

  98. Where we are now, perfect, if we get to the point where teams sit off of us and defend in numbers then I may as well play upfront for Everton.

    We do have Tosun still, to be fair.

    Yeah it’s a shame only two strikers exist in world football.

    Monumental bellend. I’d be hesitant taking him back despite his scoring record.

    Bizarre opinion

  102. Best striker we’ve had in decades – would welcome him back whenever. We’d be in European places with him in today’s squad.

  103. [QUOTE=”Davidoff, post: 7539040, member: 17711″]
    Didn’t think he did humble

    Probably just grew up a bit, realises that his time at Everton was probably the best he’s been treated by fans and a club

    We’ve been over this. It was completely deserved on our part.

    He can come back here and get us 20 odd goals a season again anytime he wants as far as I’m concerned.

    I couldn’t agree with you more mate

  108. [QUOTE=”PhilM, post: 7539052, member: 26411″]
    Technically he wasn’t the best player, however he’s quite easily the best goal scorer we’ve had in the past few decades and it’s hard to argue otherwise.

    Not really, I just think he’s a bit ‘direct’ and to the point (crass?), but even when he was here I thought his comments weren’t actually disrespectful.

    The above comment is a quote from a message where he talks about all his other clubs as well, so I don’t think he has an ulterior motive.
