  1. 10. Eden Hazard

    Again the failures in the transfer window are hurting this team. Too many complimentary players no where near enough pace and technical quality. Sans Kante this team is a mess in the midfield. If Debruyne has a bad game there's Silvia, Sane, Aguero, Jesus etc. Chelsea loses Morata and they don't look like the could score in a whorehouse.
  2. Kevin de Bruyne

    The thing is people are far too short sighted in this issue. At the time he was sold I made a post about 250 pages back that he would be world class and Chelsea would rue the decision. All this nonsense about winning two titles is complete garbage. They are independent events. Where this hurt Chelsea was 2013-2014 where having KDB in lieu of Oscar would have won Chelsea the title and it would have made Chelsea set up for the future. KDB is worth 150 million quid right now and Chelsea sold him for what 20 all because Mourinho's ego? This is the worst sale I can remember in football and it never needed to happen.
  3. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

    Hell, I could dribble better than everyone on this team bar Hazard
  4. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

    This team is waaay too slow and lacks far too much technical skill
  5. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Not quite the same. Charley has done f all thus far in his career. De Bruyne had 10 goals 10 assists for Werder Bremen and had 4 goals and 4 assists for Belgium for WC qualifying. De Bruyne was even MotM V Hull. I think Charley is talented but he hasn't shown himself to be a potential WC class player to this point.
  6. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    This team is atrocious in regard to technical skill. Maybe it was physical and mental fatigue from the Atletico match, but some of the passing and dribbling was diabolical. The lack of control made Chelsea look like a U15 side at times. Conte had a mare. Not sure how playing hoof ball with a 5'6 Hazard up top is going to work. Kanye was good at ball winning but his passing oof. Bakayoko was dismal. Alonso was far too ponderous. For this type of game (City, Spurs) Conte needs to rethink his team choice and the formation.
  7. Diego Costa

    Exit Costa enter Bellotti
  8. Bournemouth 1-3 Chelsea

    Costa was diabolical for parts of the game. His strike on the own goal was something a 7 year old does. It's almost like he sees everything Eden does then think he can do it. Costa is far too ponderous and not a good enough dribbler to be a playmaking forward. He needs release the ball much more quickly and get into positions where he can be a goal threat.
  9. Youri Tielemans

    Allegedly Chelsea made a bid of 22 million pounds
  10. Youri Tielemans

    18 goals and 11 assists in 42 games across all competitions in 2016/2017 compared to 7 goals and 4 assists in 45 games in 2015/2016. Top class player.
  11. 10. Eden Hazard

    Do you even watch Hazard play? Do you understand why he doesn't touch the ball for certain stretches? Because he's receiving no service. Good grief, it's like discussing things with people who have no sense of nuance. Go rewatch the West Ham game and see how many times Eden has go back to Chelsea to initiate the Chelsea attack. The soccer IQ in here at times is embarassing.
  12. 10. Eden Hazard

    Amazing that people still don't understand that Chelsea has issues in the midfield that kill the ability to properly use Hazard not to mention there is a distinct lack of quality in terms of creativity and technique all around the pitch. Hazard is is human he has bad games, but he's not getting the help he needs.
  13. 10. Eden Hazard

    The problem is that Hazard is either having to come back the to midline to help crack pressure and he's getting 3-4 player surrounding him. The midfield passing against Liverpool was appalling save for Cesc's cameo. Matic Kante is far too limited as a pair. Chelsea needs someone like Cesc/Mousa Demeble who can can create space with passing or dribbing to draw men towards them and away from Hazard. I always find it odd that Hazard gets so much stick for having off games when he gets so little help. Messi Ronaldo have so much talent around them that if focus on them the rest of the team can win easily. Choke off Hazard and the offensive play looks stagnant at best unless Cesc is in there. I wish Conte would look at either a 3-5-2 or 3-4-1-2 with Hazard as a shadow striker or CaM to Costa and Batshuayi
  14. Yannick Carrasco

    Scored Atletico's only goal tonight in their 1-0 win
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hazard needs help and stylistically he doesn't matchup with the current roster. He would thrive playing in an up tempo tiki taka system. He didn't have a great game but he was doubled and tripled in the game versus Liverpool.
