Great goal by Lukaku!

He's got to be the text book definition of hit and miss.

Amazing build-up and incredible finish.

Lukaku goes from the disastrous to the sublime in the space of a few minutes.

Weird player. A real enigma.

This time Skriniar remembers to foul as 2nd last man.

Why the f%&k didn't he do that last week??

Lazaro pulls a classic Burdisso. Thankfully Handa kept his cool.

Vecino still managing to have an awful game despite being up against really poor opposition.

Pretty good game and no injuries (except maybe Gags?), I'll take it.

Further reinforces my point that Lazaro is a dud.

Seems like a nice guy, but I don't think he has enough quality.

Lazalbert is my new nickname for him.

You'll take it? C'mon Nax. 4 goals and a clean sheet while missing our entire first-choice midfield.

Genoa are amazingly bad, but it was a great result.

Can't ask for more than that

Biraghi keeps annoying me as well. I'm not sure what it is about him, but he should be able to have better performances. Maybe he's just unable to stay focused for entire games.

- 2 goals and an assist for Lukaku (and his Xmas gift to Esposito)

- 2 assists for Candreva (for Lukaku)

- Gaglia had a great game (as he always does against Genoa)

Thought it was a fun match TBH.

We should have realistically scored 6 or 7.

He's a good crosser but that's about it.

Every other aspect of his game is average or below average.

I suppose there's a good chance of a LWB signing in January.

Yeah, it was an entertaining game. And no injuries to important players, Gags seemed to limp just before being subbed off, but hopefully it wasn't anything serious.

Shouldn't Asamoah be back soon? Or did he get injured again?

Jesus

Motta got sacked

He proved to be really quite awful. This trend of taking punts on former players with zero first-team management experience - just because Guardiola, Luis Enrique and Zidane were successful - is really back-firing (Vieira, Seedorf, Motta, Filipo Inzaghi, ) Let's see if Arteta is the next one of these....

Hopefully we sign Vidal or RDP in January (Kulusevski will be in the summer I think). Although despite all the press B.S. surrounding Vidal, he started and scored yet again for Barca today. He really is having a good season for them, so no idea why the hell he'd leave or they'd agree to sell.

RDP absolutely HAS to be available at 30-odd million. I know Udinese are way down near the relegation zone, but there's surely no way they'll be relegated ahead of SPAL, Genoa, Lecce, Brescia....

Anyway, we can potentially put out a full-strength team - minus Barella - against Napoli and Atalanta.

Strong chance Alexis will be back mid Jan.

Lukaku is a beast, perfect for these home games. There’s not a lot of CBs in the world who can contain him.

Vieri was like that at times. He could blow it over the bar from a yard out. But then again, in matches where he only gets one sniff at goal, he'll score. It's one of those things...and Lukaku is a bit like that at the moment.

I do really like Lukaku's willingness to learn and adapt. From being a player who was notoriously poor for his game with his back to goal, he now looks like he's prime Shaq backing up in the paint at times. I really appreciate his unselfishness and team spirit as well. In these senses, he's far above Vieri.
