Saha was some finisher. Admittedly not as productive as others mentioned, but some of his goals were the dogs bollocks. :)

I don't know really.

I think Lukaku scores more goals, which suggests he's the better finisher, but he often looks like it's hard work or he's mis-controlled it into the net.

TBH when Lukaku was here I would still have rather seen Mirallas through on a 1-on-1 with the keeper as I felt more confident in him finding the net.

Lukaku would really bottle it sometimes.

One of the best finishers I've ever seen for us was Trevor Steven. A few volleys here and there and the odd header but mostly - calm passes into the empty space between the keeper and the goalpost. Beautiful to watch. Or is that my Blue-Rose-tinted glasses......    #GettingOld

Mirallas was a good finisher but still not as good as Lukaku for me.

You’d notice if Lukaku missed because he normally wouldn’t.

Re re comparison to the Yak it’s hard to tell as Lukaku has 4 seasons of goals so he’s amassed more examples.

Remember this like it was yesterday - listening in my bedroom playing on the megadrive.

Just realized that the Yak played more games for us than any other team; crazy that.

One year ago Rooney scored a hat trick including that goal

Behind the scenes an absolute bellend signed a form to not only become the manager of Everton but also one of the highest paid too

Simply simply lovely

And didn't he mock Marco Silva around this time as well?
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
