  1. Romelu Lukaku

    Here's an overview of all his 61 goals for Everton! Imagine there are still people on here who claim that his only strength is to run towards goal on a counter. Have a look at how many goals he makes in the 16 yard box. Exactly what we are missing at the moment! https://www.playsports.be/videozone/allecategorieen/premier-league/record-lukaku?vepE13_VID
  2. Radja Nainggolan

    Slowly but surely... he's getting here
  3. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Excuse me????!! TIBO!!!
  4. Radja Nainggolan

    Well you need a playmaker in front of them: like Cesc or even Eden! You just play them in a triangle with the point aiming up front!
  5. Radja Nainggolan

    He's like Kante with the strike from distance that we haven't seen here since Super Frank left! Are we even doubting this? Imaging what an astonishing midfield he & Kante would be!!! No one will be able to go straight through the middle :)!!! Sign him up!
  6. 10. Eden Hazard

    I have only seen yesterday's first half. So I cannot judge on the second one... But I cannot understand people who are saying Hazard didn't show up, had an awful game, etc... If there would be any scouts in the stands, I'm 100% sure ALL of them would have written in their little notebooks: #10 of the blue team is very special. Because even in a 'terrible game from him': He's literally involved in ALL our attacks. He comes to look for the ball all over the pitch, even on our own half. He's the guy who speeds up the game with a little flick or diagonal pass. It might look that he slows down play because he chooses for the safe passes. But this is because he thinks way more quickly than all us together. Because if he sees an opening, he always passes diagonally, after which he normally makes a good run to receive the ball back. Not too many take on's yesterday, correct. However there were 9 Hull players behind the ball all the time... so it makes no sense to want him dribbling around 3-4 players all the time. He would literally lose the ball several times (he's not a robot) and then people would say he cannot go past defenders anymore :). Matic, Alonso, Kante, Moses (somewhat less) are all looking for him to break the dead lock. His only creative link-up options are Costa & Pedro (Fabregas if he's playing) => this is our main problem!!!! IMO yesterday was a difficult game because Hull was parking the bus... But more over because almost every creative spark depends on Eden (or Costa)!! The rest of the team is just passing around and looking for them. The bottle neck in Build up yesterday for me was Alonso. A lot of fluent attacks ended with him getting stuck. Also his crosses never reached target in the 1st half. You could blame the other for not being in the 16 yard box... but I think a player should know NOT to cross when only Diego is in a box together with 6 Tigers!! So when we are dissapointed with a game like this from Eden... when ALL scouts would put him in there booklet. We just have to realize that we are so spoiled!!!! I think we will only realize once Eden is not on our pitch anymore. And if he would ever play at Barcelona (for example)... I'm afraid we will see him at full potential in creativity and our jaws will drop down again! Until then... cherish the fact we have Eden Hazard playing in our Chelsea kit !!! Because OH MY he will be missed so much once he would be gone!
  7. Radja Nainggolan

    The fine art of the Ninja tackle!
  8. Yannick Carrasco

    Carrasco's manager, Christophe Henrotay, confirmed that 2 clubs apparently bid the €100 million that is set in his contract as a release clause. Both Man United and we are named as having placed the bid! Interesting to see how this evolves in the coming days...
  9. Radja Nainggolan

    I think we should give this another try. Conte clearly is a big fan and he knows what he's doing. Radja on our midfield means bringing in a warrior. This would be a great extra for our attacking department. With a warrior behind you... you know you can focus on what you do best: attacking! Not only is Radja running all over the pitch to regain possession (with his famous tackles)... He also has the stamina to attack in every game! With his amazing technique he also scores stunners from outside the box in like at least 1 out of 10 games! Bring him in :)! AS Roma coach Luciano Spalletti lavished praise on midfielder Radja Nainggolan, describing the Belgian as a thoroughbred after his two-goal performance in the 4-0 win over Sampdoria. "He's on another level – a great player who can play anywhere you put him," Spalletti told reporters after Thursday's Coppa Italia round of 16 tie. "He needs space though because that's when he really comes into his element. If you pen him in, he finds it harder. When he's able to play on instinct, he becomes a real handful. Nainggolan has been the driving force in midfield this season, leading Roma to second in the Serie A table, one point behind leaders Juventus. His first effort against Sampdoria was one of the best goals of the season in Italy as he met a misplaced clearance with a first-time volley which dipped wickedly into the net. http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-soccer-italy-rom-idUKKBN1540VJ
  10. Chelsea 4-1 Peterborough

    If Bats is playing selfish and struggles ... this is due to the situation! Conte absolutely didn't do him any justice by not playing him when Costa was suspended! He's a very good player but indeed, shouldn't be the lone ST. Need him to play in attack as the 2nd striker to play him best.
  11. Dries Mertens

    Check this out: one month ago in the WC qualifier against Estonia. I can tell you that it was intentional
  12. Dries Mertens

    Oh yeah he also humiliated Hart with that last goal!! World Class. Check it our from 5.00min in the highlights!
  13. Dries Mertens

    Started his topic in October 2011 but it is locked now Back then he was a steal... now you will pay a good amount of cash for him. Just scored 4 goals in his today game against Torino. That makes 7 goals in 2 games & back to back hattricks in the Serie A. He's a perfect false 9 and has a very good link up with Eden! Am I the only one that would still go for him?
  14. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Nothing to worry about!
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    The brothers united on the pitch! Soon in darker blue?
