Lukaku In No Rush To Come Back!

Lukaku In No Rush To Come Back!

Our teenage Belgian striker, Romelu Lukaku, continues to make a big impression up at the Hawthorns.

On Saturday, he bagged another brace, against Reading, to take his tally for the season to 9.

However, any expectations of seeing him in a Chelsea shirt next season might not be realistic.

It appears that Romelu is having such a wonderful time playing for West Bromwich Albion that he`d like to stay for another season, commenting in the media,

"I am happy because I play - I don`t really care about what Chelsea are doing."

I wonder how the Chelsea hierarchy feels about that?

He should watch his mouth really, can't be saying that about his club. But other than that I agree with him. His development is going well at West Brom and his only 19 and strikers peak at like 27-30! so it's looking great right now...

I think he should shut the **** up, really getting to dislike d guy with d way he runs he's mouth without control...was really looking to see him succeed in a blue shirt but as it is...WHAT THA HELL ...*hissing continously*
14/01/2013 17:15:00
he currently plays for the baggies. he knows it would be disrespectful as hell to them screaming his name to hear him say...."i cannot wait to help my beloved blues...the hurtin they're under with that blonde ***** is enough for me to pull my locks out....imma coming cfc my keep lampard till i get there to remind the fans of a time of glory...i am drogba part deux" which i guarantee is what he was actually thinking...

he is young and feels rejected by his first love. also he sees this as a way to ingriate himsef more to the fans, coaching team and the board of the club. no doubt minders at chelsea would have contacted him and told him to watch his tongue next time he goes to the press. we might see an apology or a rejoinder to that interveiw soon. we should forgive him this time as he is young. Benayoun did same last season and it did not earn him anything. the boy will learn. patience folks.
14/01/2013 17:32:00
Leave the boy alone and let's persevere with torrid Torres. I wonder who sold Studge to Liverpool instead of Torres. It's confusing.

I agree with most of the previous posts & would add that doubtless words & their meanings change in translation; it can't be easy to think in one language & speak in another. The general thrust of what you want to say is doubtless retained but as ever, it's not what you say but the way that you say it that counts, in a non native tongue it's difficult.
14/01/2013 17:40:00
'i dont care about' could translate to 'im not worried about, at the moment'.
14/01/2013 17:57:00
I blamed AVB for this. I will never forgive him

people are quick to lambast Lukaku and am i sure people will acknowledge that i am one of the biggest critiques of the excessive way our players talk to the media but there is a greater issue here. I read what the young man had to say and far more damning than what he said about being uninterested in what Chelsea are doing at the moment are the two other things he said; that is is presently more concerned about his career development and the success of westbrom. This is another consequence of the headless policy we have at chelsea because of the nonexistent stability at manager. Lukaku is not alone here..KDB was more diplomatic but if you read his latest comments the boy is thinking more and more that his future may not lie with chelsea and he is flattered by the attention and interest in his career that Werder Bremen and others in the Budesliga are showing. This is also happening with Courtois. Let us not even mention Bruma and PVA. It is a systemic problem..the only current or recent example of any Chelsea player who has gone on extended loan that has ended up in the first team is Danny Sturridge and we all know how his story ended..The next best thing is Ryan who barely still gets game time..this is what these young men are seeing..Further there is no stable coach who can remain in contact with them when they are on loan to assure them that they are not forgotten orphans and that their parent club actually has a future plan for them and actually cares for their long term career development. It says much about our loan policy that we have the equivalent of two full teams out on loan and yet i can assure you Rafa probably has had little or no contact with any of these guys and there doesnt appear to be any plan to recall any one of is a problem and rather than just blindly berating the young man Lukaku we should realize that his outburst is just a tip of the iceberg,...we have a big problem in this area.

lukaku do one thing leave chelsea play somewhere else score lot of goals after three four years when you will established yourself as the new drogba...we will come back for you with 50 60 million bid and you wil get to start in first team...and people who were complaining about you will say he is ready now...and would why did we sell him inn tbe first a old tradition at get in first team...
14/01/2013 18:59:00
Spot on ,GabeU!! With the way the club is being ran,and the very limited opportunities available for youngsters,it is easy to see why they prefer to hang on and endear themselves to their various loan clubs. The only thing there to be blamed is the lack of stability which has been a shameful state of affairs and one that leaves the loanees bemused as to the uncertainty of their future. Lets hope the problems is sorted out soonest so that this youngsters can live their dreams of putting on the blue stripe.
14/01/2013 19:12:00
I was gong to post a comment here, but gabeu summed up everything I wanted to say in a complete nutshell. Of all of our loan players there are only 4 which we can really say have a chance of getting into our first team. Lukaku, Kdb, josh and courtois, four players who are of absolute star quality. I would love to know what is being said to them. Again as gabeu said the only chance of our younger players getting absolute game time is if there is a manager who is given licence to incorporate then into the starting line up with no pressure. Piazon is another, I don't think he needs to go out on loan, in the games I've seen he is more than capable of being able to play a good quantity of matches for the first team. If these lads leave it could be the greatest mistake ever, bigger than letting lampard and cole leave.
14/01/2013 19:13:00
Any new manager that comes in should have a remit to incorporate a maximum of 4 youth players into the starting line ups, it's not as if there isn't enough games to play them in.
14/01/2013 19:16:00
Would anyone blame the kid, we obviously don't expect him to disrespect West brom, a club that has given him the opportunity to develop and prove himself... If he come back here and doesn't get to start scoring goals immediately, Chelsea fans would be the 1st to run him down, we'll find one fault or the other..... Won't blame the kid even if he decides never to return to Chelsea.....
14/01/2013 19:18:00
Romelu Lukaku is a con man, boy perhaps, I'm afraid he used chelsea and Drogba to make himself famous, his desire to attain prominence at early age made him fraudulently declared himself as a die hard chelsea fan with portraits of Drogba and Anelka adorning the walls of his bed room, he even posted video of his visit to SB on the Internet. Fast forward to few months after he signed for Chelsea, fait accomplish! mission accomplished, the so called Chelsea fan did not want to touch the biggest accomplishment in the club's history, the CL trophy!, reason being he didn't partake in winning it. Romelu does not give a hoot about what goes on at Chelsea his childhood club? and that was not first time he's making such statement. If it find hard to believe any true fan would support the petulance of this kid who had stopped saying any good thing about a club he once told us he loved to watch while still plying his trade in Belgium.
14/01/2013 20:34:00
Lukaku has nothing to lose either way. He is only 19 and has the world at his feet. If he goes a top club will sign him.
14/01/2013 20:37:00
Why should he care about a club that doesn't want him? Even if he goes he has a full career to look forward to.
14/01/2013 20:42:00
He said: 'At this time I'm just looking at my own career and West Brom, I don't really care about what Chelsea are doing at the moment.' he went further......"You have to be somewhere where you are connected with the people. You have to be in a good environment. Where I am now is similar to when I was in Anderlecht. That's why I have settled very well here. On the pitch, I want to win.".
14/01/2013 20:47:00
I don't like him or his attitude anymore, and those stating his case for him are lukaku's apologists which aint a bad thing per se, but he strikes me as a loudmouth, he came to chelsea and expected to be played instantly when he has a horrible first touch, he plays football like a damn rugby player then chelsea sent him to westbrom, where thankfully he is developing, a player that really loves chelsea will not say those statements and that is the truth, who here have seen kevin de bruyne last interview? The lad said I try to watch chelsea most times and celeberate when they win and I get annoyed and sad when they lose, I wish I have the link here for u to see and differentiate the attitude between the two, then u'll see who really love us, the bitter little *****.
14/01/2013 21:19:00
Well said @raybell..i think this kid should just shut his feckin mouth up and let his football do the talkin,for the past few months he has been mouthin a lot and he throws a jibe or 2 at chelsea with every chance he gets,he should really watch his mouth..what sort of a true fan would not care about his club(not to talk of parent club)?? What sort of a fan would not want to touch and celebrate his club's victory in europes greatest club competition?? Well,just as raybell said he might be a con man cos for them its all about selfish desire
