Who Authorised That?

Who Authorised That?

Several times this season, when Fernando Torres has been misfiring, we`ve cast an envious eye to the Hawthorns and wondered about Romelu Lukaku.

Since joining West Bromwich Albion, on loan, the young Belgian has shown that, given the opportunity, he can score goals in the Premier League.

Several people have suggested we should have called him back when given the opportunity.

However, is that as easy as it seems?

Flicking through the pages of one tabloid this morning, it looks as if Lukaku`s loan spell could go on well beyond this current season.

Seemingly, so the article goes. Chelsea have given their blessing for Lukaku to remain a Baggie if he hits a certain number of appearances this season.

Now whilst accepting that we will receive a loan fee, can somebody please tell me why we spent £18 million on kid that, so far, has knocked in 9 goals in 26 appearances but looks further away than ever from pulling on a blue shirt?

I think all loan players will come back in summer, they will go on preseason tour and depending on how they do plus this season exertions, then decisions will be made. I believe the big five are now ready to play in first team on a regular basis. Lukaku and ba up front together.

Give Lukaku the #9 shirt he deserves it him and Ba upfront will scare teams.

He has a massive potential,he knows it and he fears that coming back at cfc may hinder his growth.

Yeah it seems if you can believe the papers that he will spend a further 18 months on loan at west brom

He has potential but was never going to play ahead of FT or DS23 not with his ball control. He's a beast yes but his other skills need to be developed. Merlin ....have you found out who gave the go ahead for Meireles to be sold, Essien and Josh loaned out all to ensure the playing time of the dude in the # 8 shirt? Who is it that turns a blind eye to our very poor midfield and will not chase diamonds like Diame and Sissoko?....We need answers sir and we know you can do the research. Please and thanks.

before the season started everyone was blaming that lukaku is not good enough for chelsea...he is not ready...and now he has scoresd 9 goals at wba and now everyone want him back...you know the value of a player when he is not playing at chelsea...no one valued lukaku before and now everyone wants him....similary its goes to danny and marin...people are saying danny is not good enough the guy has scored 4 goals for liverpol...and about marin people say he is not fit for epl...i hope he goes loan for other club like swansea and the same people who were talking rubbish about him will have to eat their words...thats sure.

Sturridge is more of a fluke player. 12 million is right. did not fit in our system so correct decision to sell. Lukaku should replace torres in our squad next year. Can rotate with Ba. looks really good for west brom. he is ready.

Mai, absolute rubbish from you. Sturridge is a goal scorer. He's got four for them now. I expect he will score more goals than Torres this year.

Mancini is an idiot. He sold Johnson, Balotelli and De Jong. His team lacks pace.

The article should be who is the person that authorized the loan of the recently voted 3rd best bundesliga players in kdb, who authorized the loan of essien, the sale of mereiles and sturridge and still leave a player like torres in the team?

United has won the epl already mate! They spent sensibly and bought a certain striker who game the whole team a new found confidence and they fully deserve the title! Fixing,coercing referees and yada yada apart,they deserve to win it! Everyone has been poor this season but that shrewd piece of business sets them apart!
