Surprised there hasn't been a thread on this yet, so I thought I'd make one.

Colossal display from a man who is supposedly a "lazy, mercernary cunt who's now got the fat pay-off he wanted".

Suppose you have to accept that he's no spring chicken, and he's always struggled with fitness, so people may see that as lazy. For me, I've never seen the attitude problem that others have, but I'm too tired for any more debates about him.

Class, pure and simple tonight.

Top quality tonight. His touch is out of this world at times

All you had to do was look at his face during the celebration of the second goal. He loves this club, he loves football -- and more importantly -- he loves scoring goals.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

That cant excuse the fact that he HAS looked disinterested in the last couple of games for whatever reason.  When he decides he's going to play and to put in a bit of effort he's up there with the best.

He does look disineterested at times I agree, but I think you just have to accept thats the sort of player he is. I can't actually recall any game where you could have said he really put a shift in.

Louis Saha played well tonight.

It's odd that you don't want to start a debate yet started this thread.

I don't want a debate. He deserves special praise tonight. I've gave him it.

Yet you chalenged my labeling him as a lazy mercenary.

As I've said before, Louis Saha is a great player, WHEN HE WANTS TO BE.

Takes boatloads of confidence to score the second goal he did after missing a penalty, not many people have that, good on the lad, I've been disappointed with him recently but he's shown tonight what an absolutely superb player he can be at times. May his Goodison Park reign last for many more years.

Can't believe that he recovered so well and netted a second after failing on the penalty.  Top quality and Long Live the King!

Well considering he didn't half take some stick on here the other day, I felt it wrong that no-one had said anything about probably our man of the match. Criticise him when he's shit, but don't praise him when he's on it?

In fairness as a striker it's hard to look interested when your getting no service, people call chasing players down aimlessly "hardwork" but if your not the fittest of striker why waste your energy!

It's not the chasing down of players that's been my gripe with him though.

It's his lack of unselfish runs when we have the ball more than anything.

Last night, much like against City, he put in a much more aggressive performance which saw him cover a greater width of the pitch. This pulls their defensive shape and creates space for others.

He's a world class forward on his day, but to be world class you have to put the hard yards in. Yesterday he did that.
