Lukaku finally signed up at Man U, let's see if another 90 mill can buy them the charity shield again, so Ed can bleat on about it all next summer.

Well seeing as we didn't win the EPL or FA Cup we won't be playing in it.;)

Crazy money.

No way is he worth anywhere close to that. Great deal for Everton. Was hoping Chelsea would get him the last minute. Man Utd were willing to pay more in wages though.

I can see the commentary next season. Lukaku scores a wonderful header against Burnley, this is why Man Utd paid so much for him!!!!

No worries, tee shirt sales alone will pay for him.

If I'm being optimistic, maybe Lukaku can make some draws into wins against the 'lesser' teams.

Isn't all professional football for commercial reasons and the PL in particular and for the top six teams especially so. Sponsors names on shirts, stadiums named after airlines. Player product endorsements from perfume to underpants.
Long way from when I bought a pair of Stanley Mathews football boots from Bata.
