  1. 10. Eden Hazard

    No offense but i wish fans wouldn't be so naive when it comes to player loyalty. Lamps, Terry, DD, Cech were loyal because at the time the club matched the ambition and financial investments that their quality demanded. They stayed loyal because they were able to challenge for trophies surounded by other quality players while getting well paid. It was in their best interest to stay so they stayed. That's why Lampard went to Man City at the end because it was in his best interest to do so.

  3. Alisson Becker

    If Allison deal doesn't happen maybe Navas ? Can't imagine him being happy being second choice at Madrid.
  4. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    He's staying. He'll be a valuable player coming off the bench and honestly what team is going to pay him the wages he's earning now ?
  5. 10. Eden Hazard

    Maybe i'm reading to much into it but the "if they want to let me go" part does seem to indicate that he isn't going to push for a deal and is putting the decision in our hands.
  6. The Conte Thread

    So you've got some inside information now do you ?
  7. The Conte Thread

    I'm with you on that but i'm just saying we don't now what happened behind the scenes and what happened between Conte and the players behind the scenes.
  8. The Conte Thread

    I think he retweeted that" Conte's gone " message at the top of the list. I think people need to also consider this, what if Conte was the "cunt". We don't know what went on. It's pretty clear Conte has clashed with a number of players.
  9. Jorginho

  10. Nabil Fekir

    Just swap his cigaretts with weed. Practice should be fun.
  11. 10. Eden Hazard

    Jorginho would be a big sign of intent from the board. The type of player he is, the quality he has, the fact we'd have beaten City to his signature. With Sarri coming in and the signings we seem to be lining up it doesn't make sense to sell him. Even if Real or Barca come in i'd tell them to fuck off if i was the board. Just do whatever it takes to get him to resign.
  12. Nabil Fekir

    Wasn't Callejon more of a winger though ? Not 100 % sure though but i though he was more of a winger type player. Would be my first choice if we buy someone. Seems to fit that winger type of mold. He's also still young. Also he's jamaican so he's gonna be able to hook us up to some good sh*t aswell Yeah agreed. I think it's important that there's a good balance in terms of off the ball movement. Conte preferred Pedro over Willian in Conte's first season primarily because he wanted that balance. We all know Hazard doesn't make a lot of runs in behind, although he has improved a bit in that area under Conte but still 90 % of his movement is towards the ball. Don't think we can have another player like Willian playing in a front 3. There wouldn't be enough off the ball running which would make it easy to defend. Yeah i think alot of players will flourish under Sarri. I also feel like the board hired a manager that actually embodies what they wanted before we hired Mourinho the second time.
  13. Nabil Fekir

    Isn't he more of a 10 ? I think we need someone on the RW that's going to make a lot of off the ball runs in behind the defence. Kinda like an upgraded Pedro.
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    Followed Chelsea before Hazard was a Chelsea player, to be fair wasn't as active as i am now but that also has a lot to do with me only starting to really love watching football at a later age. Changing reality lol. Wow really. Okay off the top of my head. Willian skied over after a pull back from Hazard against Atletico, Fabregas couldn't sort out his feet against Atletico, Fabregas missed after Hazard back heeled it against Arsenal while dropping 3 Arsenal players to the floor, Hazard put Willian 1 on 1 against the goalkeeper against West Ham, Giroud in one of his first starts missed after a short corner where Hazard found him inside the box with a free shot at goal, Giroud's shot saved on the line when Hazard passed it to Giroud, Morata missed several great opportunities with Hazard putting him in great positions, Hazard put Drinkwater in 1 on 1 with Mignolet against Liverpool. Going after Hazard's assist count is just weak as f*ck man. Not his fault playrs couldn't finish. I'm sure there's more but these are the ones i could think of right now. Hazard could have easily had 10 more assists added to his name if our team was a bit more clinical.
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    You're welcome maybe next time don't reply to me with fanboy and Hazard FC crap and i might drop the condescension. You're moving the goalposts now aren't you. Now suddenly Hazard is more then a dribbler even though you posted 2 twitter idiots stating Hazard was just a dribbler. Hazard influences games even without scoring or assisting and that's what you fail to understand. If Hazard goes past 2 players and then draws 3 more towards him that's 5 players tht aren't able to mark anyone else. Hazard opens up space for other players by going past players and attracting other players towards him. In the Belgium game none of our attacking players were playing at a good enough level to take advantage of the space but that's on them not Hazard. Another straw man argument. How have i implied that ? I even specifically stated that Ronaldo is a superior goalscorer to Hazard. I even clearly stated my point being that creativity and goalscoring go hand in hand and that one isn't superior to the other and that success means striking a balance between the 2. (+ ofcourse some form of defensive stability mixed in) Edit: Also on where i put Hazard vs Ronaldo. It's dificult. Overall career Ronaldo wins no doubt. Currently it's difficult because Ronaldo last season showed 2 faces. First half of the season he was really awful. Poor performances and worse not even a lot of goals. Second half he was great primarily in the CL although he also raised his performances in the league. Coming up big. I'd put Ronaldo ahead of Hazard becaue of his CL performances last season but it's anyone's guess which Ronaldo is going to show up at Juventus next season. Also Ronaldo's season last season is also a good example why just focusing on goals and assists is a bad way to go. 15 goals, 3 assists in the CL and 26 goals and 5 assists in the league looks great but his poor form in the first half of the season was the biggest reason why Madrid were out of the title race by december.
  16. 10. Eden Hazard

    End product doesn't mean just goals and assists. Hazard creates a sh*t ton of chances. Not his fault they get missed all the time.
  17. 10. Eden Hazard

    Nice straw man argument never said he was the best player in the world also even if i had still a big difference between that and labeling Hazard as "just a dribbler" and before you try and weasel your way out you didn't say it outright but you're clearly implying it. I'm trying not to reply but you're making it hard because you keep posting such stupid things. If and when i put people on my ignore list i'll decide thanks for the suggestion though very thoughtfull. I try to give people plenty of chances you are making it very hard though. Quick question you think Ronaldo would have scored as many goals as he did if it weren't for him having a supporting cast with quality creators like Modric, Kroos, Marcelo overlapping, Benzema also supporting him ? (The answer is no by the way.) To be clear not trying to say that Ronaldo isn't a superior scorer then Hazard. What i'm getting at is that creativity is just as important as scoring goals because it works hand in hand with each other. If you want to be a succesfull team you need a good balance between creative players and goalscorers. Hazard is a tremendous creator, labeling him as anything less and yeah i am going to respond to that.
  18. 10. Eden Hazard

    Someone who can't appreciate a proper baller like Hazard, doesn't understand the game of football and isn't worth talking to, so bye.
  19. 10. Eden Hazard

    Yeah yeah little robbie not really sure what you're trying to proof with tht twitter post. plenty of fucktards on twitter, congrats you're one of them So now suddenly Hazard doesn't create chances, like really ? Hahaha Again none of his attacking teammates showed up. France with 11 behind the ball and if Hazard wanted the ball he had to drop deep. Difficult to create when there's 11 french players between you and the goal and the rest of your attacking teammates are playing like shit. Like i said before though what's the point discussing things with you. Can't seem to understand a thing past goals. So done with you and your'sh*t
  20. 10. Eden Hazard

    What a load of rubbish. Not suprising it's coming from you. Hazard was the only attacking player that bothered to show up. He couldn't directly influence the game because he had to do KDB's job. Hazard had to drop deep to pick up the ball. Difficult to score when the moment you get the ball there's 11 french players between you and the goal and KDB-Lukaku too busy playing hide and seek.
  21. Final - Knockout Stage Thread

    Hope so but i'm worried about us defensively. Even with that extra midfielder there we're still vulnerable at the back. I think both sides will be worried about the attack of the other team. I expect a closed off game unless an early goal happens.
  22. Final - Knockout Stage Thread

    It's probably going to be Fellaini not Dembele. Chadli for Carrasco will probably happen aswell. Martinez was really positive about Chadli even before the WC.
  23. Aleksandr Golovin

    I don't know. It's a possibility imo although i would agree that a 4-3-3 with Hazard as a LW seems more likely. I think the 3-5-2 worked for a while with Hazard as a second striker/nr 10. I think the problem was that teams started playing a lot more narrow and compact against us . Most teams would play in a very narrow and deep 5-4-1 or 5-3-2. It just made it difficult to get Hazard on the ball and if he did get the ball he was isolated surrounded by opponents and the only close support he had behind him (Bakayoko, Kante) with both wingbacks too far away too really link up with and closely marked by the opponents wingbacks making them difficult to reach. I think it would be different under Sarri. He plays with a lot more players in between the lines making it a lot more difficult to close off the passing lanes to all of them. Besides that he also focuses more on quick short passing and also the composition of the midfield would also be different. From a Bakayoko-Kante -Fabregas to a Hazard-Kante-deep playmaker that can actually defend midfield. I suppose we'll see. Even if Hazard plays as a LW i would still expect him to play in between the lines. That's where he prefers to play and from what i've seen that's also how Insigne played and how Sarri likes his attackers to play.
  24. 22. Willian

    Cmon DYC. 50-60 million for Wilian add another 20 million from our own money. You're telling me we can't find a RW that can score more then 8 goals in the league and actually be productive in the final third for 70-80 million ?
  25. Aleksandr Golovin

    Golovin isn't a deep playmaker at all. He's a runner, dribbler. An attacking palyer that works hard both sides of the field. The Hamsik role probably although could also play as a LW,LM in a 4-2-3-1 with Hazard then as a 10. Can't imagine us not going for a deep playmaker. That position is absolutely vital for the Sarri system to work. Agree. I just don't see it with RLC. He looks like a nothing player. He's tall, strong, fast and technically sound but none of that actually gets put to use as an actual quality, as something that he offers the team consistently. He doesn't have the work rate to be a defensive player so that just leaves an attacking role but what does he offer going forward ? Not a great shooter, not a great dribbler, not a goalscorer, not a great passer, no great ball movement, no great hold up play. What exactly does he offer that would make him worth having here ?
