Football Season 2017/18

My prediction for the season.

Lukako will become the next Gary Birtles, sold in the next transfer window.

He has his strengths. He’s powerful, fast and a good finisher.

But, he scores most of his goals against relegation fodder, usually late on in the game when the opposition is pushing lots of defenders forward or disheartened. He struggles to score against the top teams with well organised defences.

It could be argued it will be different at Man U, he’ll be playing with better players. But that wasn’t the case in the Euros last year, it was blatantly obvious his Belgium team mates wouldn’t pass the ball to him in a congested penalty area, it was embarrassing. Good job he didn’t go to Chelsea, Eden hazard was the worst culprit.

 

Another Evertonian here. I'm really looking forward to this season. We've bought astutely and we've bought early for a change. Koeman's getting rid of our  "inferiority complex" players. Brought in skillful players with great work-rate, the tempo will be totally different and we won't have to tailor our play to just the one striker. I really like what's happening!

COYB!

Yes, a very refreshing change to our usual transfer dealings! I don't think Koeman's trading is done yet - Sigurdsson and another striker according to the rumour mill at work.

I think Lukaku will score a shedload for the Mankychester Utd but will give it until Christmas before "His Satanic Majesty" Mourinho starts to criticise him openly. Isn't it this season the Divine Mr M he is scheduled to fall out with his current club?

COYB!

Probably trying to turn his back on Anfield! Apologies for the irreverence.

The rivalry between EFC and the other lot makes for odd behaviour. A Blue relative of mine worked in the city center and commuted in by car. The quickest route was past "The Other Place" but he always took a route by which it was not possible to see it!
