Courtois has a great game Saturday for Chelsea, barely mentioned all night.

Lukaku has a great game for another team, thread explosion.

People generally get more excited over goals than a bloody goalkeeper, not that they don't for the latter. But you know that and are just looking for a way to put people down, correct? I really don't get your post.

You did respond to me though. It was a question, because if you kept reading I said I didn't understand what you meant by your post.

Was referring to the grass is greener aspect, if Courtois was sold and performed like he did vs Bournemouth for another club, thread in overdrive in fact his thread was a lot more busy when he was a Leti player.

Courtois made a couple good saves against Bournemouth. A team we should be battering. LOL. Lukaku scored and had an impressive performance and reached a landmark amount of goals. Of course Lukaku is going to be more mentioned. Courtois could of made 3 penalty saves against Bournemouth and tbh I still would not feel right to give him high praise when we lost to one of the worst teams in the league. That is just ridiculous mate, come on.

I feel quite embarrassed that some members may feel Courtois needs to be praised for having a 'great game' against a team like Bournemouth at our own ground. Speaks volumes about how bad we have gone overnight.

I doubt it. Not every player's threads light up with activity after a match. Maybe is the game was won people may be in a likelier mood to shower a Chelsea player with praise. Besides, maybe it is a relief to watch and discuss a player that is actually doing well as opposed to the dire situation this club is in?

Good games are expected of Courtois. He has generally been consistent for most of his career. Not entirely true for the patchy and streaky Lukaku. It seems as if a lot of fans on here still have an affinity with Lukaku and there is nothing wrong with that.

Sorry, if I came off the wrong way, I just had no idea why you brought it up.

Ofcoutse it shows how bad its got, but that's reality and Tibo kept us in the game first 30.

Good for you Lukaku, always been a fan of his attitude/workrate towards the game. I wish he was given more chance to perform with us. Could really use a player of his caliber atm.

not a fair comparision. cech has had some very good performances and made some very good saves since his move to arsenal. dont think anyone has been doing this in the cech thread.

goalkeepers seldom get the praise they deserve.

i love DD with all my heart, but sometimes it feels so weird when people say DD "won chelsea the CL" because of his goals against napoli, barca, bayern and penalty. the truth is cech did much much much more. he kept us in several legs. but people hardly give goalkeepers (or defenders) their credit.

anyways, why wont people want to abuse jose for the lukaku fiasco. anyone with a smidge of footballing brain could have seen lukaku's potential. because of jose, we have lost a 22 year old striker who would easily rank as one of the best strikers in PL currently. if lukaku plays in PL, i have no doubt that he is going to break several records. and we wont be the team for whom he will be making these records. 10 good years of having a very good striker. thats what jose has cost us among other things.

Perhaps if the club hadn't resorted to bringing in "has beens" such as Eto'o and DD over the seasons, he might have stayed and try to become number 1 rather than being pushed down the pecking order.

The irony being is that with injury and suspension problems upfront, he would have got plenty of game time.

Not his fault, as he or the club wouldn't have known that....but at the end of the day Lukaku did what was best for Lukaku and chose to leave

It is ridiculous really. The club invested in KDB and Lukaku which was very pleasing and when Jose got rid of them, the board should have not allowed it. Jose just fucked it up because he does not build for the future. Any other manager would of seen the world class potential in KDB and Lukaku rather than ship them out. So bloody frustrating that Jose fucked this up for us. So painful to see KDB and Lukaku thriving while Jose's chosen ones are continuing to under perform.

Now the fact that we sought short term success rather than long term is affecting us now. Could we do with Bertrand? Yes. KDB? Of course. Even Mata. Lukaku. All of them was sold by fucking Mourinho. Lukaku was breaking records in the league at the age of 19 but we wern't patient with him and should of actually given him the chances he deserves. Now look. He certainly has improved his qualities where he could play against a team that puts all there men behind the ball. It is actually Costa who seems to be struggling with that now while Lukaku has improved on these elements.

Great goal again, Should have got an assist if koné would propperly finish it.

He is proving how complete of a striker he is again. Great strength/hold up play, movement, assisting, heading, technique. What does he actually lack?

At this rate, he may get Vardy's record. Can't stop scoring.

oops he did it again!!!! :lol: i still cant believe we let a 21 year old PL proven striker go despite having striker problems for the last 5 years. oh well!!! and the worse thing is that a lot of people had agreed to this at that time, cos apparently one world cup is good enough to judge a player. :lol:

I dont watch a lot of Everton games but he missed a lot of chances vs Norwich and his general movement is awful. He progressed in a sense that he uses his big body more efficientely but I have serious doubts about him being the main striker here.
