Well being our best striker this pivotal 2 months, especially last 5 games, just shows how helpfull he was lol
Yeah it just shows we can't rely on him. Dzeko and Lautaro even if they're having a bad string of games right now actually had more than half a season where they did very well, scoring loads and helping the team tremendously, while Mr MVP with his fat *ss is over here stinking up the place and missing open goal chances at the moment when according to all his fanboys "April will be his month", "Lukaku is about to stunt on his haters", "The king is back".

Many people were acting like after one whole year of being overweight at Chelsea + his injury + his abysmal WC, he would just magically lose weight, get his head back in the game and reach the form he was under Pintus. Now it's April and he has less non penalty goals than Dimarco and we still have to read about how pivotal he is and how he only need the right coach, etc.

There is always something to excuse how bad he is/plays, always. At the time we needed to sell Lautaro and get him a better striking partner, at Chelsea players like Werner, Havertz and Mount weren't good enough to play alongisde him (despite literally winning the UCL three months prior), at Inter it's actually Inzaghi who is keeping him from performing at god level.

If he was in any semi-decent form, he would have scored both misses yesterday. It was 3 years ago and people are still memeing Gagliardini for what he did against Sassuolo but the 115M€, 110kg, 20M a season, Top 5 striker is out there missing the goal because he can't even choose the appropriate foot to tap the ball in the net and excuses are already flying in.

He needs to step up big time against Benfica, that is his last chance.

Regardless of what he does against Benfica, we should not bring him back next season. Hat-trick against Sweden is irrelevant for us. He is out of shape, has poor confidence, and has scored 1 goal from open play in Serie A this season.

One goal from open play all season: that is a damning statistic in anyone's language!

I'm kinda confused by the fans' stance here.

Curva Nord makes a bunch of announcements after he leaves and even just before he arrives about this guy.

Then you see him coming on from the bench and they're chanting his fucking name as if he's some kind of legend. Then he doesn't get jeered as much as you hear for other players, including Brozovic and Barella.

Why does this guy warrant extra patience when it's obvious that he's rather unprofessional?

His alternatives being the same shit or worse might have something to do with it. I mean, Lautaro might give us the impression that he's our best attacker because he scores more goals than the others. But when he goes missing in several matches, fans expect someone else to fill his place and Lukaku is the first one that come up to mind, rather than Dzeko or Correa.

I am not talking about expectations or whatever. Only about reactions.

He seems to be praised just for existing.

These two are related. You don't react for nothing. You react because you expect something.

Lukaku is the first one that comes up to mind to fill Toro's place and he NEVER FUCKING DOES IT. How many open-play goals this guy has after his return? One against Porto when we played 11v10 ?

This guy is just utter fucking crap. He should be the guy who scores the goals so Lautaro can be the support guy. But this guy is fucking worse than Lautaro in scoring.

At this point, when we are playing these kind of salaries to players, the result is what matters, nothing else. And this guy is failing so hard. The level if failing is just at incredible levels.

To be honest, I would not even play him any more for the rest of the season, if there was any viable alternative.

I am understanding that you're not rating his hold up play very highly.
