Well done the Ev for this.
It's true to say that if Shankly had told us to invade Poland we'd be queuing up 10 deep all the way from Anfield to the Pier Head.

They truly lucked out with Lukaku. Will be interesting to see what they do with his money in the summer, it's extremely difficult for the club of their stature to find a striker who can score 20+ goals in the league, their fans will be disappointed if they think they can replace him just like that even with a lot of money at their disposal.

The problem I envisage is one where they try to replace Lukaku like-for-like. Not necessarily in style of play, but a top quality, 20 goal a season striker. You know, the kind of striker like Lukaku who wants to play Champions League football. They will get a bare minimum of £50 million for him and they will have the cash to reinvest but the smart play would be to continue to improve the squad. Of course they will need to buy a striker to replace him but 2 or 3 15-20 million signings will be better for them than trying to look everywhere and kid themselves that they can attract a superstar (or even someone a tier below with potential to go higher like Lacazette).

They need a new goalie, Baines is on the wane and they need a couple of centre halves. Gueye and Schneiderlin together is a decent pairing and Davies looks like a talent. But I think they'll do a West Ham and throw money (or at least pretend to) at every striker across Europe in the hope one says yes. They are a massive, massive club after all.

Part of me thinks they could get icardi if they throw enough at him, no big club seems to want him for the obvious reasons and he could get paid more at the shite than at inter.

Luke shaw could be a decent option for them in the summer, would have to get him to take a big pay cut tho.

But I think they'll do a West Ham and throw money (or at least pretend to) at every striker across Europe in the hope one says yes. They are a massive, massive club after all.

And this is where I see their problem being. Lukaku has been involved in 27 of their 51 league goals this season. I think the only team more dependent on one player might be Sunderland, who have relied on Defoe to either score or assist 16 of their 24 goals. They also have plenty of long-term holes that need to be filled: Williams, Baines and Jagielka are all in their mid-30s. They could do with a first-choice keeper too. Schneiderlin will likely be Barry's replacement for the next few seasons. However, they also have a chronic need for depth up-front too.  Forwards are not cheap.

Everton would arguably need a Lukaku replacement and another one. Enner Valencia and Arouna Kone have scored an anemic three goals combined.  And given Valencia is on loan, Niasse will be loaned or sold again and Kone is massively injury-prone and 34, they could end-up realistically needing to recruit  three forwards.

They've had a piss easy run though to be fair. You can only beat what is in front of you I suppose, so they do deserve credit. But the one properly good side they faced they lost to, 3-2 flattered Everton when they faced Spurs. Hull, West Brom, Sunderland, Bournemouth, Palace. They couldn't really have asked for many better teams to face.

Flattered by their fixture list just like in the first half of the season till the tough games come acround and they flopped. Lets see how good they are in 2 weeks, given our 2017 results against little nothing clubs like themselves a result shouldnt be beyond them but they'll bottle it.

It's slightly mad that Lukaku is the first Ev player to score 20+ goals in the premier league for them given they've always occupied around 6th place, although not so much when you actually look at the players who held the previous high scoring records :D

I've never seen them so giddy. It's hilarious. Our heads are falling off apparently. Yeah, definitely. I hope it gets built. My head will fall off with laughter at the thought of them building a 60,000 seater stadium and the subsequent realisation that it will have 20,000 empty seats every fortnight.

Or my head will fall off in 2 years time when it dawns on them that they have 'funding' issues and it goes the same way as the Kings Dock plan, or the Tesco stadium, or the Walton Park stadium. History has a way of repeating itself, somehow they are oblivious to this.

I'll be amazed if it's over 40,000

It will probably be something along the same lines as the King Power or St. Andrews

About 35,000 is my guess. And they'll still struggle to fill it

 ;D Thought I'd look at their stadium thread to see some actual news and unsurprisingly it's all about us. Really, really weird. Can anyone tell me what we are all meant to get upset about? A football team playing in a new football stadium? Is that it? And look at how incredible the likes of Arsenal, Sunderland, Darlington, Reading and co are now! As long as they fund it themselves I couldn't care.

In fairness they did stop talking about us for 2 minutes to say stuff like "We can fill it forever because West Ham do and we are bigger than them". Ignoring the fact that whatever West Ham say the attendances are it looks half empty each week and will be even more so when the novelty has worn off and the team is still shite.

They will get a bare minimum of £50 million for him and they will have the cash to reinvest but the smart play would be to continue to improve the squad.

That has never worked for anyone in recent memory. Us with Suarez, Napoli with Cavani, Spurs with Bale, you have to put the money back into that same position. Lukaku cost £28m and they will sell for about £50m, they need another £25-30m player to replace the things he offers.
