Just thought I would mention this for the Lukaku not being replaced, which is true by the way.

Let's put this into perspective, Rooney has scored as many premier league goals this season as Lukaku has at Utd. All those saying we are missing his goals, well the stats do not lie,

I was in the sell the Lukaku camp, provided we brought in a top class striker, once we do this results will follow.

We have taken a few steps back, but have no doubt Sam will fix our defence, then bring in a striker, small steps first but getting there already without any reinforcements.

January will be an interesting window and I expect Sam will go for his former Kone.

No doubt Rooney is still quality. if not the quality he was when he was early 20's. And yes his goals equal Lukaku's. but remember quite a few of those goals came in the last few games where we picked up points. Before that we lost a lot and no one was scoring whilst we were conceding 2/ 3/ 4 a game. If Rooney keeps on scoring at this rate we will have only defensive problems to sort. and Sam A will surely do that. So let's keep positive and hope these 2 things coming together will mean we can move upwards in the League.

It wasnt just his goals, his presence, height, strength, pace and the mental factor to our players as he gave everyone an option but to also the opponents defence as he would draw deffenders. We were more balanced with lukaku.

I agree with all of the above. It's worth noting however that Rooney's goals have earnt us 9 points on their own (I've included the West Ham game in that because I doubt we would have scored a goal otherwise, he played a blinder that day) . Didn't Lukaku's goals earn us about that many points all season? We just need someone quality to fill Calvert Lewin's place (as he needs more time to develop in my opinion) and a solid CB and we are good to go in Jan.
