Lukaku just scored with the strenght, power, pace and confidence of a proper striker.
I still think Chelsea were wrong to toss him
+5
Diego Costa, ehm ehm !
+7
He's one of the motm, just showed quality hold up play and then brilliant through ball assist for mirallas goal
+1
I'd like to agree with you, but I think Chelsea were very right to sell him. Look at his terrible first touch before his run and goal... With Chelsea, he's rarely ever going to play against high defensive lines like that and a poor first touch means the attack is pretty much over then.

With a sub-top team like Everton he can be at his best. He gets the service he needs there, plays against teams who aren't afraid to attack them and allow him space and the crowd will love him AND forgive the occasional mistakes he makes. He would have none of that at an absolute top team like Chelsea.
+10
Most of the fans are sad we sold him but he would always be a back up to Diego
+1
Lukaku Is a class player but I have to agree with Jeroen. I couldn't really see Lukaku being a part of this Chelsea team with the football they're currently playing.

His first touch is below the standard required for a player of his potential, it's only his speed and strength that help him to recover from time to time.

I do however believe that he could be something special if he works on that part of his game. He has a lot of the qualities to be a brilliant striker on the future.
+1
He's a good player, but his strengths aren't a major need at Chelsea, and his weaknesses will be exposed most games.

I'm not even going to compare him with Costa who's on ridiculous form the past 2 seasons, but I think Remy is a better fit at Chelsea as backup.
it's the same with welbeck and sturridge. both moved to get more playtime and in the end i think it will be best for their careers.

lukaku is just 21, i think he's at the age where he will only improve with experience. in 4 or so years you can be sure there will be big teams after him. there are not many players his age better than him across europe and almost none can match his goals tally so you know he has a big future if he can continue to improve his technical and tactical skill. in this game you can see improvement. he's not perfect at it but he's gotten better even from the last time he played vs chelsea earlier in the season. much better than he showed at the world cup.
Ya there is no doubt they made the right move.

Out-Lukaku- £28M

In-Costa- £32M
+4
Long-term we Will probably regret it , definitely he is good enough to play for Chelsea right now and he will continue to improve.
Really impressed of how much he had been involved in Everton attack and build up his hold up and passing has improved so much
Regret? Sure he could become a great striker but there will be no regret.

Chelsea want to win everything possible in the short term, and that is not going to happen with Lukaku leading the line I'm afraid. He is not near the standard required to lead the line for Chelsea...if he was then Mourinho would have kept him and not bought costa. I rate Remy higher than lukaku actually at the moment
+2
Didn't Lukaku want to leave? He wanted to be first choice not a back-up and he wasn't willing to stay and fight to earn that spot. Tbh, he made the best choice, he went on loan to West Brom and scored 17 and 15 at Everton while on loan with them. On the other hand despite his quality Chelsea got 28mil for him after buying Costa for 32mil. Both parties are happy. Only time will tell how good he gets in the future but if he can improve his technical part of his game then his going to be sought after by a number of clubs.
Only thing Lukaku did wrong was not force a move to Arsenal:p
You won't improve sat on the bench. Training with top players does help you, but nowhere near as much as actually playing.

He's got regular gametime for a club with European ambitions and he'll be tested against the very best rather than watching them from the sidelines.

This is what his career needed, so good luck to him. Chelsea aren't exactly missing him right now. Everybody wins.
+2
It's great that Chelsea sold him and got a new talent in. It resulted in spreading the wealth and pushing the envelope for strikers in this league. They just sold him to the wrong team! lol
I have eyes to see his bad first touch. I meant to say I still think Lukaku is a proven goal scorer one should keep based on potential. Bar Costa, Aguero, Sachez, maybe Berahino, who is exactly a sure goal scorer in the premier league?
Seems to me Mourinho is happy enough with teams Everton can trip on the way, not with the future of the club, you can't explain old Eto'o and Lukaku otherwise

- Mike Williamson - least reliable defender in PL history
- Jason Roberts - his hilariously funny miss of empty goal may have been a ticket to Championship for Blackburn
+1
^least reliable defender...you ever heard of Cygan
I saw him in Pro Evolution Soccer 05, not sure how he played. Have you seen Williamson defending? He's not even marking other team's players.
Scholes (LOL @ your description putting him as a flop)
Giggs
Gerrard
Lampard
Henry

Bebe
Veron

Henry
Zola
Solskjaer



Forlan
Veron
Jeffers

Forgot how much of a flop Anderson was. Didn't he cost like 23 mil or something ridiculous?
+1
No drogba on half your lists = list invalid :P
Tired of seeing the same legends over and over again

Jääskeläinen (Bolton)
Ferdinand (ManU)
Fowler / Hyypiä (Liverpool)
Given (Newcastle)
Dunne (ManCity)
Hibbert (Everton)
Drogba (Chelsea)

Note some of these guys are maybe not PL legends, but they are legends at their clubs in this millenium
+2
Kevin Phillips (Sunderland)
Luis Garcia (Liverpool)
Mark Viduka (Leeds)
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (Chelsea)
Jay Jay Okocha (Bolton)

+2
Yeah could make a strong case for drogba as he won more trophies in england but I think henry had a lot more goals and was more of an icon of the league due to his showmanship but yeah he's a prem legend for sure because he showed up in finals and eon 3 league titles etc 3 or 4 fa cups and a couple league cups and community shields.
Legends:

Gerrard
Fowler
Rush
Kenny
Ibratelli

Flops:

Owen
Torres - Chelsea
Carroll
Downing
Kakinho
Torres is in half of the posts posted as flop. What if he would never leave Liverpool, would you call him legend then? I watched PL 08/09 and he was a superstar scoring in match vs. Man United which ended 4-1 for Reds. Then he left to Chelsea and now you call him a flop. It's a bit unfair since he played brilliant football when he was in Liverpool.
+1
suprised no one mentioned Abidal
Yes Abidal the Premier league legend, played for such Premier league club as:

Monaco
Lille
Lyon and
Barcelona
+1
well the english teams beat the german teams in this week of CL.

schalke 0-5 chelsea
city 3-2 bayern
arsenal 2-0 dortmund
wolfsburg 0-2 everton

we're coming after you next, la liga (jk)
+3
Good results!...But whats important and matters is "How many English teams will make it to last 4"
#respect to english teams this week
+1
Seems funny now how people were talking about english teams being bad in CL this season. It would be great if all of the english teams would make it to the final 16. On the other hand I'll might not cheer for Liverpool since there are 2 Czechs playing in Basel -Goalkeeper Vaclík and defender Suchý.
To those that rival us,

Everton currently bossing German #2 Wolfsburg at their home ground. Score still tight but Everton well on top.
British Secretary of State for Culture, media and sport Sajid Javid is calling for FIFA to make its full report on corruption in the bidding for Russia and Qatar to be made public.

United States attorney Michael Garcia, who led the two-year investigation into the allegations, said it contained "numerous materially incomplete and erroneous representations".

http://m.bbc.com/sport/football/30203666

Blatter and co. Trying to hide behind Swiss privacy laws. This whole thing is snowballing. This will soon be out of FIFA's hands. Governments are starting to distance themselves from FIFA. as soon as one government decides its immoral or illegal to hide the findings in Micheal Garcia's report the house of cards will fall. This is IMO the quickest way to get to the bottom of all this. FIFA is policing itself but the allegations that Garcia's report was covered up should spur some kind of outside investigation. Once that happens, FIFA are done for.
+2
FIFA conducting an investigation into FIFA.

"Yep, clearly nothing's wrong here, carry on."

International federations should start threatening to abandon FIFA, to disband and abolish confederations, form new ones with a set of rules that include at least some sort of transparency into the inner-workings of the organization. It's an unlikely scenario, but it's the only way to fix what's wrong with the system. The corruption in FIFA runs too long and deep to cleanse itself, in my opinion.

Blatter is a sexist, corrupt old man. And he's in charge, and has been for years? Honestly, if we can't do better than that, we should find something else.

The house needs to fall.
sponsors are pulling out, but that might not hurt them too much. There will always be some company who wants to get on the global footballing stage as a partner.

However the fact that big players such as Sony are reviewing/retracting their association with FIFA might help raise awareness and drive public pressure towards forced reformation.
Yes we already saw Sony and Emirates pulling out. Sony claims for financial reason which of course is bs. They're just covering their tail.

Personally, if either one of the sporting brands pullout then you'll definitely see a change. Nike is probably the biggest power player given their global star power. But Id imagine they'd make some calculations based on how much the Nike signs would be viewed across the globe, eg. On shirts and kits. The advertising medium is muddy waters really...
As requested by BluFFmaster.

Lol! This guy kinda looks like Tevez. XD

LOL fantastic. The rest of the team is not doing much apart from having a smoke and playing pocket billiards.

Sony not renewing its sponsorship contract with FIFA sighting lack of transparency. FIFA starting to lose its grip on Qatar.

So the only building standing in the way of Tottenham's new 400million ground has been ravaged by a fire. "The building belonged to the last remaining land owner on site next to White Hart Lane marked for re-development." The fire stopped shy of White Hart Lane. The police are already treating it as Suspicious.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2848532/Fire-rips-business-blocking-building-Tottenham-s-100m-new-ground-White-Hart-Lane.html

Daniel Levy was in Barbados. Perhaps an alibi?? Who knows, but you can't deny that its a tad suspicious
+5
Yeah definitely looks suspicious..looks like Levy is Breaking Bad
+4
It's hilarious.(I'm going to hell) ;)
I doubt it, there're many ways to go about it, this is the most ridiculous way of getting rid of a building, especially with the imprisonment term that comes with it. It's impossible for him to get a suspended sentence or a conditional discharge after all.
Even if Daniel Levy was in London, he wouldn't himself go light up the building. The alibi angle is ridiculous.
@Tomikato offcourse not, the reason i said he was in Barbados at the time was because he might be connected without himself being anywhere near london.

Or maybe some Spurs fan lit up the steel factory which would be equally shameful
