  1. 19. Diego Costa

    No Diego's off the ball movement is sharper and better.
  2. 10. Eden Hazard

    No news so far about that. All depends on how bad the injury is and how quickly it heals. Belgium has 2 games. the 25th and the 28th but the one on the 28 th is just a friendly so i'd be very suprised if Hazard played that game. He said: "Hazard in the last training felt a bit of a problem in his calf and for this reason I preferred not to risk him." It remains to be seen whether Hazard joins up with the Belgium squad for their upcoming games against Greece and Russia. http://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/598059/Chelsea-News-Antonio-Conte-Eden-Hazard-injury-update-Stoke-win
  3. Stoke - Chelsea

    Great win, great effort shown by the team. Stoke, what an absolute shit stain of a club. The amount of dirty fouls and off the ball fouls that were going down was just ridiculous.
  4. The Conte Thread

    People need to realize that our managers actually have a big influence on our transfer targets. You just need to look at which players we 've been linked with since we signed Conte as our manager. The majority of them are either Italian or play in the Italian league. Clear examples are players like Koulibaly and Nainggolan. In the summer we made a number of bids for both these 2 players. I mean yes sometimes the board themselves recommend a promising player (like Batshuayi) to the manager but i'm certain that they first discuss it with the manager before buying. I don't get why people have such difficulty with the board having the final say on transfers. Whether it's a board or a manager both will have bad transfers and good ones. Also i'd like to point out that we actually did go for Stones and Pogba in the summer after our PL title. It was reported that we made bids for both.
  5. Chelsea 1-0 Man United

    Not suprised. This is the same fan base that claimed Kagawa was better then Hazard. They've always been very salty when it comes to Hazard tbh.
  6. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    True but i think 3 would be reasonable since we've gotten a significant amount of money to spend. For me it would be CM>RWB/LWB>CB>RW. Looking at the players we'd want to replace Pedro for me is the least of our worries. Both are given lots of time and space on the ball. Alonso can't go past players as he just doesn't have the skill or pace to do it while Moses might go past players from time to time but then he struggles to play that final ball. For me both are an issue and both need replacing.
  7. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Alonso is decent but i feel both Alonso and Moses are too easily nullified going forward. He's a good squad player but i'd really be looking for an upgrade in the summer. Next season if we actually want to achieve something in the CL we need better players then just decent ones.
  8. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    I'd risk it tbh. They'd be a nightmare to defend against and they'd compliment eachother quite well. Plus there don't really seem to be any well rounded wingback options for us to go after so i think our best bet would be to look at attacking players like a Lemar and try and mould them into a wingback.
  9. Romelu Lukaku

    Fuck no. When he's not scoring goals he's freaking useless. Would it really be that much to ask to just get a striker that scores goals but who can still contribute in other ways and can actually control a fucking football.
  10. The Mourinho Thread

    Not really a good comparison. It's more like dumping your ex. Being in a relationship with another girl and then having your ex constantly take digs at you and your girl. Finally you respond by telling her to fuck off and then she goes and acts hurt and pretends to be the victim. Also on a sidenote i absolutely loved the Conte Mourinho bust up. Mourinho and Faria looked scared shitless. Pretty sure Conte could have taken on the entire fucking Man United bench.
  11. 10. Eden Hazard

    I don' think the PL is superior but i do feel it's a more difficult league to play in as a top team/player that plays for a topteam. Teams in the PL are allowed to be a lot more physical then in la liga. Referees allow more in the PL then they do in la liga. That definitely favors the lesser teams. Even the lesser teams in la liga play out from the back and try and play possession football. In the PL there's a lot more teams playing a more direct, rigid, counterattacking football. Which makes la liga much more of an open league then the PL is. The difference between the top teams and the lesser teams, both financially and quality wise, is also a lot bigger in la liga then in the PL. A lot of that has to do with teams in la liga selling their tv rights individually rather then in the PL where it gets sold collectively and then divided in a more equal fashion. Just to illustrate how big of a gap there is between Real/Barca and the rest of la liga. In 2013/2014 Atletico madrid won la liga they made 42 million euros selling their tv rights. Barcelona and Real Madrid each made 140 million euros. About Hazard-Neymar comparison. I understand what you're saying but i feel Neymar has had more opportunities to shine on the big stage and he's also played in more favorable conditions then Hazard has. So i just don't think the comparison is a fair one.
  12. 10. Eden Hazard

    Disagree. I'm sure i'm gonna get stick for this but i didn't think he was that great actually (performance wise). Don't get me wrong the freekick and the assist were sublime but apart from those 2 moments he didn't really do much else all game. Scored a penalty that wasn't one and dived to win the first penalty. Kinda mental actually that he gets such plaudits when he barely did anything for 88 minutes. He does deserve praise but the praise he's getting is way over the top. Pundits calling it "one of the best performance they've ever seen from him". "Best player on the pitch" Lol Neymar disappears plenty. He went several months without scoring a goal ffs. In a league where the difference between the top teams is that big that's just ridiculous. It also helps that he's got a team of all highly technically skilled players to play with.
  13. Chelsea 1-0 Man United

    Full strenght i think. He already played Costa, Hazard and Moses against wolverhampton. Also given how shaky our defense was that game i can't imagine him going with Ake Terry and Zouma.
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    High praise from Lampard.
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    To follow up on what Spike said. Hazard has been fouled 75 times this season, Mane 47 times. Hazard created 54 chances, Mane 41. Hazard has 120 successful take on's out of 153 attempts ( 78% succes rate). Mane has 61 successful out of 106 attempts ( 58% succes rate). and yes Hazard played a whopping 2 games more then Mane.
  16. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    Yeah apparently he was accidentally kicked in practice. He should be fine though according to reports he was training again on friday.
  17. Riyad Mahrez

    Poor comparison. Costa and Hazard had only good/great seasons before last season and have only had the 1 poor/average season. Mahrez is the opposite. He's only had 1 good/great season the rest have been average at best. No reason to buy him. We're not that desperate.
  18. The English Football Thread

    The outrage is over the top. I like and respect Ranieri but after 25 games they're 17th in the league 1 point off relegation. Leicester had to do something.
  19. 10. Eden Hazard

    Look if you wanna criticize him for the poor passes then fair enough but blaming him for "not touching the ball for long periods of the game" is a bit ridiculous considering how awful we were on the ball. I mean that first half. I lost count of the amount of times we just hoofed the ball forward without any purpose. I really wish people would stop looking at individual performances in isolation. Team performance effects individual performance and vice versa. If the team is playing shit on a stick football then that is going to have a negative effect on your 5ft 8 ball carrying attacking player. About the off the ball movement. Hazard and Costa were making plenty of runs, problem was that the passes they got were a lot of the time aimless, poor and coming from way too far making it easy to defend against.
  20. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    Team to face Wolves: Begovic; Zouma, Terry (c), Ake; Moses, Chalobah, Fabregas, Pedro; Willian, Diego Costa, Hazard. #WOLvCHE
  21. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    Wouldn't be suprised if Conte goes with a strong lineup. We will have a week before we play our next game after this.
  22. 10. Eden Hazard

    It's bullshit. Watch this highlight vid. http://www.fullmatchesandshows.com/2017/01/31/liverpool-vs-chelsea-highlights/2/ at 8:28 you'll see Conte's actual reaction to the missed penalty and Hazard isn't even on the bench as he's getting treatment inside.
  23. Franck Kessié

    Yeah, this season we're just gonna have to make due with what we've got. Just hope we don't get hit with injuries.
  24. Franck Kessié

    Problem is we need actual starting quality players not squad players. We need to be looking for better players then Moses/Alonso/Pedro/Willian.
