Question about Lukaku

So in the summer you obviously let Lukaku go. At the time, it was clear that Ole didn't want him, which hastened his exit and his desire to leave. From the outside it looked a pretty decent decision. Ole stamping some authority on a side and moving on a player that the fans never really took to for whatever reason. Now though, with United's faltering start and struggle for goals, and Lukaku flying in Milan, it does look a dubious decision. The question is not about hindsight, nobody could say how well Lukaku would have done, my question is regarding your style of play and quite why Lukaku wouldn't have fit in? Recently you have played with 2 up top, surely Rashford and or Martial could have operated off a focal point. I see nothing in your play that requires a certain type of player to make the system work. You don't really press all that well, something that has Lukaku was criticised for. Many pundits including Jose have spoken about Rashford and Martial being unable to lead the line and the issues that causes your attacking play. If you were struggling but you had a clear direction then could the sale of Lukaku be justified? As it stands, I feel that your team would be a far bigger threat with him being available. Was selling him this season, before Ole had actually implemented his style a huge mistake?

Thanks.

Again, I thought we'd nailed that as well, that either incompetence or design ed or whoever fecked it up and left you light up top. It's that simple and we really we can't say one way or the other which it is. It's all supposition.

But we can

Ole.said he wanted 1 player but he wasnt available. He has also said there are funds available, and that he has the final say on ins and outs.

Whatever lad. Not ar$3d what Ole said, just because he says something doesn't make it true.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

There is no reason to doubt what he said on this matter Lad.

By the way, another big game today where Lukaku showed why we wouldve been absolutely insane to turn down the money Inter offered.

You were moaning Ed took too long selling Lukaku earlier, now you are praising Ole for getting as much as we did for him.
