Personally, I wish he would stop talking about that missed opportunity as it serves as a reminder as to how close we came last season. Undoubtedly, we had a chance to make history and missed out because Lukaku is completely useless. Guardiola's frequent mention of the miss makes me think that he is still in disbelief about it.

I was only thinking about it yesterday, the manner in which we were eliminated from the Champions League this season. I tried to pinpoint what was fundamentally different from last season to this season and all I could come up with was Arnutovic's numerous and wasteful misses in the first leg against Athletico and the fact that Lukaku was not playing as a foil for Lautaro.

All along, Brehme was right about him: a striker who fails to take a chance from three meters out in a Champions League Final, is anything but elite.

Some posters might find Guardiola's referring to Lukaku's miss as funny. But they are also a reminder of a real and unexpected opportunity that was by Inter with there being no way to foresee when we will again return to a Champions League final.

These comments are anything but funny. They're much more like there being a gaping wound that Pep sees and says "let me pour this cannister of salt into it".

He just lacks the ability to finesse in one on ones. Thuram’s last goal is a perfect example of what I expect in those situations of a striker with high skill. I could be wrong but Lukaku has never done that in his career 😂 just knows how to force the ball in with hope and good will most times.

The moment Saudi clubs started giving huge salaries left and right, it was sure that Lukaku will eventually end up there.

He's also said, every time he's left any club because of a particular reason, it turned to be a good choice. What a clown :lol:
