I tell you what Peter Roberts, Alan Bodell, Jay Harris, Darren H... Let's call a truce and save this thread about 200 comments.
You know it makes sense.

I don't care if every goal Lukaku scores is a spawny touch of the studs (as yesterday) or off his arse from one yard out. If he sticks 25 a season away, then I'm happy.
On another point, Islam Slimani made a good debut for Leicester City yesterday. I wonder how much our DoF was involved in scouting Slimani when he was there? We could do with some decent back-up / competition up front.

We're now 50/1 for the league and 5/1 for a top 4 place (PP). When were we last priced so low at this stage of the season?

I might has been mistaken but the ball came into him at one point against 'Boro and it stuck like glue, before he laid it off to continue the attack. I nearly fell over. Maybe Ron & Co are already rubbing out some of the weaker parts of his game and he knows it. I think the club have made a great signing in Bolasie who already appears to be able to give Rom the service he wants. All in his hands to be honest.

Looking at the stats he has been adding to his consistency in regards to his goals tally, plus watching him he has become better at his hold up play and first touch over the last 12 months.
He's fairly decent in the air, very good with his left foot, strong and fast, all that is the making of a good forward, but if Rom can add something extra, like work on his right foot, plus work his close control when in full flight, he will surely become one of Europe's finest strikers.
I think Rom has a good idea of what he wants to become, this helps hugely in your quest to better yourself.
Sign a new deal Rom and keep up the good work.

A young age, and he is scoring as often as those playing in top European sides. He has a good fitness record, and apart from the end of last season, a good attitude. Now he has a better coach and better players around him, he will score even more.

Of course, he's no Bale, Ronaldo or Messi, but the biggest comparison I can draw in terms of style at least is Didier Drogba, and Rom far exceeds him statistically at this point in their careers.
Trying to project career trajectory is incredibly difficult but he has a few positives in his favour which are promising. Age and performance to date is the obvious one. The next one is playing in different teams and different styles he's done it with 3 teams now and consistently scored. The Anderlecht, West Brom and Everton teams have all had significantly different characteristics and he has still produced.
All that along with the stats in this piece bode well for him in my view and the club whether it is goals or cold hard cash we get!
