    What a thread... Amazing the sort of rose-tinted glasses some people put on when things are going well. :lol:

    Damn, guess I got a little carried away when Lukaku was banging goals at the start of the season. Kane has continued to prove he is in the elite bracket of strikers and Lukaku hasn't shown anything to suggest he's near Kane thus far.

    You're not the only one to have been proved wrong. At the beginning of the season, my impression was that the difference between the two was negligible, with Kane perhaps a bit ahead of the curve.

    I now know better. Kane is quite clearly among the very best in the world, while Lukaku is nowhere near that level.

    lool. Well was good in hindsight. The only thing I can say Rashford still has time to perfect his craft. Lukaku is just Kak, everyone is talking about his improved hold up play but watching Kane, he's miles behind even in that aspect.

    I don't think Lukaku as a target man is even better than Giroud, other than he is younger.

    The Lukaku Kane comparison is more reasonable. Comparing Mbappe to Rashford however is ridiculous. They are miles apart currently and Rashford has some catching up to do.

    This thread looks really funny now. Kane turns out to be so far ahead of Lukaku now, while Mbappe is also miles ahead of Rashford.

    Least some of us came out smelling like roses, though it wasn't the biggest of calls to say Kane > Lukaku and Mbappe > Rashford. Should be painfully obvious to anyone with an iota of football IQ.

    It was pretty daft when the thread was made. The replies were fairly unanimous that Mbappe is miles ahead of Rashford (apart from the few talking about Ligue 1 being a farmers league ignoring that Mbappe also performed in the CL) while Kane is ahead of Lukaku

    Is Rashford a wide forward or CF? Can someone tell me definitively?

    Still well short of the discussion of if you'd swap Januzaj for Ronaldo with most saying they would not
