Why Lukaku is the Ideal Replacement for Rooney

Why Lukaku is the Ideal Replacement for Rooney

As the season is drawing to a close, Manchester United are spectacularly in the running for one of the four European spots despite a largely uninspiring season under Louis Van Gaal. Having sold three forwards since his arrival, the Dutchman has somehow managed to keep his side in the running for the Champions League places and possible silverware in the form of the FA Cup, thanks to youngsters Anthony Martial and more recently Marcus Rashford, covering for their captain's prolonged …

Roberto Martinez must tinker his football philosophy

Roberto Martinez's first year in-charge of Everton was full of pleasant surprises. The former Wigan boss did a wonderful job as his side finished in fifth place and gave Arsenal a scare for the last Champions League spot. In hindsight, the 2013-14 season was one of overachievement for the Merseyside managers. Brendan Rodgers took Liverpool to almost win the title, eventually finishing in the second place and his counterpart at Everton ensured Everton finished with the European spot. In striking …

Player chemistry on the pitch is key to any successful team, go back through the ages and any successful team has partnerships on the pitch in various positions.

Romelu Lukaku - Why He'd Make Any Premier League Team

Romelu Lukaku - Why He'd Make Any Premier League Team

It's almost hard to believe that Romelu Lukaku was once an unwanted outcast with Chelsea back in 2012 when he was shipped away on loan to West Brom after making just 15 appearances in all competitions for the Blues. An impressive record of 17 goals in 38 games during his season with West Brom prompted interest from Everton and after another successful loan spell, he signed for the Merseyside club permanently in the summer of 2014.

In fact the last few players to cross Stanley Park have included Nick Barmby (Everton to Liverpool), Abel Xavier (Everton to Liverpool) (remember him, remember the hair) and one I didn't know about or seemed to have forgotten about is Sander Westerveld (Liverpool to Everton). But there's one player currently plying his trade at Goodison Park that I personally would love to see playing at Liverpool and no, …
