  1. General Match Thread

    Kinda annoying though...how the 3'rd placed team from the group Athletico gets offered a route back into the CL, whereas we get dumped in the very next round.
  2. 10. Eden Hazard

    Mate, in the previous summer Gary Cahill AND Azpilicueta were stressing the need for new players. You can look it up. Azpilicueta even went to the extent of saying that some of our replacement players might not be as good as the ones that left. Its nothing new here. Players say stuff like this all the time. They're just clever in the way they say it, without naming anyone. Besides, I doubt any player bothers about what's said about them in the press, especially if its in indirect quotes. You're clutching at straws here, I think.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    The entire quote: "I'm waiting for new players next season," said Hazard. "I want good players, because I want to win the Premier League next season." Hazard is also aware that his next contract could be one of the last he signs during the prime of his career, adding: "That's why I'm taking my time. It's something big, so I need to think about a lot of things. But one thing is for sure: I'm happy here." "Like I've said many times before, I think the FA Cup final is not my last game for Chelsea," he said. "It's the last game of the season, that's it. "After the World Cup, then we will be ready for the next season. But, for me in my mind, I'm here. I have one week to play now. Saturday is a massive game, I just want to win, for me and them also. "We are Chelsea and we need a trophy at the end of the season and, at the moment, we have nothing. We have not qualified for the Champions League, so this season has been bad. Now we can save a little bit this season, with this trophy. So, we will give everything."
  4. The Conte Thread

    You have to wonder what he was thinking with the starting line up for the past two games... On a winning streak, chance to get back into the top 4...and suddenly he alters the lineup, and makes Christensen and Bakoyoko regulars again.
  5. 11. Pedro Rodríguez

  6. 2. Antonio Rudiger

    To add, he's been recorded as being among the top 10 fastest players in terms of top speed in the PL this season (no. 1 being Leroy Sane). Not bad for a center back, eh?
  7. 18. Olivier Giroud

    Should put Morata and Giroud in the box and get Azpi to keep whipping in cross after cross.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    And while he may not be the most consistent goal scorer some people want:.... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5693851/Eden-Hazard-set-finish-Premier-Leagues-dribbler-fourth-season.html Eden Hazard is set to finish as the Premier League’s top dribbler for a fourth season and is creating chances
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    Just like against Messi and Barcelone at the Bridge, was head and shoulders above his counterpart Salah today...but unfortunately not getting the same amount of plaudits due to the goal count.
  10. The Conte Thread

    Wait....isn't that exactly what happened? haven't forgotten what happened in Jan though
  11. 33. Emerson Palmieri

    Don't want to jinx it, but he was good today. Good going forward and defensively no mug.
  12. Mohamed Salah

    Brilliant player and humble attitude to go with it as well.
  13. The Conte Thread

    I'd rather stop talking about both seasons altogether, and move on to the next one asap.
  14. Chelsea Kits 2018/19

    The vintage shirt looks better. Narrower hoops, darker shade of blue
  15. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Its also one of the reasons why players like Hazard are severely underrated by opposition fans. Because he isn't exactly the 'goals and assists' type of player
  16. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hey its just my perspective. Some players I feel just deserve it because of what they contribute to the club, not just in results but also defining how we play on the pitch. I used to say the same for Drogba too ...especially during that end 2011 and early 2012 when a lot of people on this forum were ready to give him the boot.
  17. 10. Eden Hazard

    Would argue that he's as committed to the club as Azpi or Willian are...considering he could have easily left a couple of seasons ago.
  18. Southampton 2-3 Chelsea

    You're telling me Drogba never went down easy? If you told me Drogba was very clever with how he went down (i.e. choosing the fouls to 'dive' for) then I would agree
  19. 10. Eden Hazard

    Whether board really feels that way is up for debate, .but I do see your point. Even if that there were indeed the case though, I still think the alternative is far more risky. IMO, I think the board has just been trying to act too clever in the past few windows and the strategy backfired on them. They thought that making someone like Drinkwater play in Chelsea would elevate their game, ala Kante, and that giving up experienced Matic for upcoming but untested Bakayoko would work like a charm. Without a director of football, and champions league lure, we will struggle to attract known players of top caliber. Fair comments, these are subjective things, and I'll admit Kante is one of a kind as well. Azpi, I'll give points for his commitment to the cause.
  20. 10. Eden Hazard

    My opinion is that he's the best of our sorry bunch. I'm just saying that Hazard should be the last person on the squad to be scrutinized.
  21. 22. Willian

    Honestly hope we can nick one player from United next season....payback if nothing else. Either Martial or Luke Shaw
  22. 10. Eden Hazard

    Our top scorer he is.
  23. 10. Eden Hazard

    And what is the bigger picture? Replacing him with 3 Drinkwaters or 3 Barkleys? (The irony is that after all the recent results, its Drinkwater that's hankering for a move. Wouldn't mind that actually. Probably means Loftus-Cheek can come back and take his spot) Hazard is the closest we've had to a Zola, Drogba or Lampard. Its pretty much guaranteed that we won't get even one, let alone 3 players of that quality.
  24. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Young was a poor choice of words. I meant someone who still doesn't have much experience of leading the line as first choice striker. Plus, at 25 there is still every chance of improvement. You can't say he's at his peak.
  25. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Think he's still working back to the player he was. Especially before the winter break...was very deadly when he first started playing for us. As a young player, I think he still deserves more than a second chance. Just need to see how confident he was playing in the first game against Utd: Heck even Bakayoko was playing so well back then.
