Lukaku has been simply outstanding this tournament. He looks much leaner and explosive than he did during the season. That run for de bruyne’s goal was world class. We need to build the team around him and play to his strengths. He can be the best striker in the world. I am so happy we got him. I wouldn’t even swap him for Ronaldo because his potential is huge.

Absolutely chuffed for Belgium. Wanted them to win because I cannot stand Neymar and his antics. He is an Instagram footballer who falls to the ground. He has so much talent yet his antics ruin it for me. Hazard was phenomenal tonight. What I would do to have him at united. When on song he is up there on the group below Ronaldo and Messi.

Finally, our marmite player fellaini. I will admit I was furious when he signed and to an extent I still stick to my view he is not what we need if we are to get back to the top. But tonight he had a great game snuffing out the Brazilian attack. He has the heart of a lion and I can see why managers love him. His attitude is exemplary and he always gives his all. I stick by not wanting him to sign a new deal. But if he is used in certain circumstances and not a starter, then I am happy to see him in the squad.

This World Cup has been crazy and I’ve loved every second of it. It has been a great advert for football and russia have been great hosts. It is refreshing to see unfancied teams with the potential to make the semis. I am firmly in the camp that believes england can bring it home. And if they don’t, well Gareth and the boys and restored the pride of the country and instilled a sense of togetherness and hope for the future. He is building something potentially great and it has been great to see.

Park, i have always loved how lukaku has played for us this season. I don't understand the stick he gets. You supply him, he scores. Simple as that.
Fellaini did ok without being outstanding. He gave the ball lot and his control in tight situations is poor. But he plays to his maximum and we can't ask for more.
I thought Belgium were outstanding.

Agree mate imagine if we were able to provide him the service he gets playing for Belgium. The guy would be unstoppable. He is so dangerous when he is running behind or coming off the right and playing players through. His distribution is so underrated. I worry we won’t be able to keep him and that his head may be turned by the likes of Real. I would love him to be our no 9 for years to come.

Agreed fellaini’s close control isn’t the best. But when asked to fulfil a disciplined role like tonight he did a very good job. Belgium are a great team to watch and I expect them to turn France over.

I've enjoyed the world cup and always felt Brazil would be the team England found just to difficult, lukaku was fantastic against them as were others but it's the utd page
On a side note maybe it's just me but if Sweden were to score against England I'd fancy it was from a long throw, a corner or a free kick so would anyone apply the horses for courses theory and play Cahill or Jones as a cb and move walker to wingback for just this game to counter this . I think trippier has done fine but walker always gets a game for me.

Pogba has been excellent this world and so has lindelof and jesse. Almost as if we have a really good team with great players in it.

Agreed on lukaku Park. Problwm is we do not posses proper wingers. Mata Rashford and Martial are not wingers, I've been saying this for three years. We need to buy or promote wingers. We have a couple in our youth and maybe give them a chance. In addition, our fullbacks offer nothing coming forward. Sorry, i don't want to start the Mourinho debate, not for another couple of months anyway, but the system he deploys at United does not allow our fullbacks the freedom to go forward.

I think the problem is how the team is set. Does Belgium play with proper wingers, I think not, they are playing with wing backs, and haven't seen any of them even providing great crosses.

Lukaku has pace, makes runs behind the defenders, players behind him needs to see his runs and release the ball quickly, Utd game play lacks that. Even if we buy wingers without changing our game play nothing will change.

All in all Lukaku had great season, and by performing well in the WC brings him with good reputation which is better for Utd and himself.

You are right about our lack of out and out wingers AAA. I have grown up with United always playing with width and quality wingers. There does seem to be a lack of proper wingers these days. The only ones that spring to my mind are sane, Willian and Pulisic. We need to stretch teams by having our wingers stay wide so that the likes of pogba can pick up those pockets of spaces in front of the defence. This will also create so much more space for Lukaku. If we do not have proper wingers, then or full backs need to have the quality and the freedom to bomb forward and create the width. At the moment they have neither. Hopefully we can improve the personnel, especially at lb. hopefully with that, we shall see a more expansive style of play. But agreed we do not set up correctly to get the most out of our most important players (pogba, Lukaku) .

What we we need is a midfielder like Belgium, someone who can break up play, elbow people in the head and release the ball forward for our front line to attack with pace. 🤔.

Lukaku has looked exactly what he looked like he was going to become at Everton.
Pogba playing well and playing in the middle .
Hope it finishes all the will excuses he needs this and that can only play x y z position.

There lots of wingers out there. Perisic, Douglas Costa in addition to the two you mentioned. But it is our fullbacks that should be taking a share of the attacking roles, but i don't think they're encouraged to do so.
