10. Eden Hazard

Henry never scored in cup finals, can't recall him netting in a semi either compared to Didier who has scored loads in latter stages of tournaments yet barring our versions of Ty i doubt anyone would say Didier was the better player. Eden has only had one shot at the late stages of the CL and he just came back from injury and was facing a defense which was almost as good as ours in 2005.

 

A team has to get to cup finals before a player can even dream of scoring in semis and finals. Thierry Henry could do everything and waiving his entire Arsenal career because of a few lost finals is nonsense.

Neymar was phenomenal in 2014/2015, since then until PSG game last Wednesday he hasn't been very impressive imo. He has the ego of a star but he is definitely no alpha, he is actually a bit of a pussy as a man actually. Sometimes he turns into a black hole ending most of Barcelona attacks by always wanting the ball and diving after a little charge. Definitely not Premiere league material.

If Hazard worked with another manager instead of Mourinho for two and a half year, I think he would have been a bigger attacking thread right now. What I find funny is that some people who think Neymar is much better than Hazard have been the most ardent Mourinho supporters.

Neymar is a wonderful player indeed, but those dives are disgrace to football. Even Barca fans admited yesterday that he and Suarez are cunts when it comes to that.

On another note, should Eden play in barca, he would be on same level as Neymar, but different qualities. I have no doubt about it.

I completely agree with your assessment. It is good for us that he choose us but if he play for barca he will be even better than current Hazard.

1st he does not have to much defensive work, 2nd he can learn from Messi.

When Hazard came in our team, he was straight away our best player, there is no one to learn from imagine if he can learn from a player like Messi.

Hazard doesn't suit Real's aura at all imo. The club mostly consists of egomaniacs from top to bottom, he's far too chill and laid-back guy to fit in there. There's also immense pressure playing there, you must always perform, but who knows maybe it would benefit him. I just feel that we are a much better fit to Hazard as a club and a team.

I definitely wasn't an ardent Mourinho supporter... doesn't suit your narrative unfortunately. 

If Neymar isn't an alpha what's Hazard then?

You're saying Neymar isn't PL material just because the truth hurts. Wow. Almost as bad as those that think Messi can't cut the PL. 

PL isn't superior to La Liga at all. Even German and Italians clubs have been consistently doing better in Europe for years now.

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.

Are you having a laugh? Don't confuse me with someone else. Have a look through the Mourinho thread. I have argued with lots of people over Mourinho for a long time. Don't let the truth get in the way though. I know the truth hurts but it is what it is. Literally, quick search brought up this. Been criticising Jose since 2014, boy.

Saying anything remotely negative about Mourinho now equals to slating the club to some. Fan-fucking-tastic.

This is tiresome tbh. You sound more like a Mourinho fan than a Chelsea fan to me tbh. There is no way in hell that Jose didn't justifiably get criticised over the last few weeks. He wasn't the only person that got criticised either, the players got lots of criticism too, so it really wasn't just Jose who got flack for our performances.

Yeah, I think that's it for me. Finally, fully fledged member of Mourinho out now. You know what, if we were hovering around 10th/9th, I'd still give a vote of confidence but this is unprecedented and very atrocious.

Just not good enough. We have a lot of good players under performing. It points to one man.

I agree with all of this and know that, wasn't disputing otherwise tbh. My main point was more about the quality in the top teams of each division I mentioned. They're ahead of the top teams in the PL. 

Also agree with the fact that Neymar has had better conditions which I did state. It's unfortunate but it's one of the reasons why Hazard is behind.

Indeed. La liga is better in many terms, but when it comes to individuals, its certainly easier to players. First the schedule is not as difficult, then the refs dont allow harsh challanges and finaly the opponents are not as physical. 

During the course of season(s), it gets to the player and usualy it takes few seasons to adapt. 

Clear example should be Suarez who scored 40 goals in laliga, something that would be impossible to do in Prem

Not to mention that there are only barca and real on another level in laliga and Neymar plays for one. On technical side, sure laliga teams are better, but that doesnt mean they are harder to play against. Lot of players will say its more difficult to play stoke than Arsenal because of the opponents physicality. 

Bottom line is the CL where Neymar been far superior to Hazard. But IMO playing in laliga gives you alot better prep to play in CL than PL does. Heck even Ligue 1 is better starting point to play season and have CL matches between. 

PL is very physical and thats why we are winning the league with the likes of Alonso, Kante and Moses. Because they can play stokes week in week out without fatigue and injuries. Then in CL they lack that technical skill neccessary to win it. But we cant play technical players because league demands Moses and alonso type of guys. Modern english teams want to evolve, but nature of league doesnt allow it.

Guys like Pep, Conte, Klopp, even Pochettino will do their upmost to improve their teams and bring it in line with Europe's elite. They're all too good as managers for the top teams in the league to stay behind Europe's elite for too much longer. United will continue to spend heavily too. Next season we'll see the quality of the PL evolve as it's a big big transfer window for a lot of clubs.

Honestly, if Eden went to a club with top class quality forwards and midfielders and the right manager, he'd probably still have kept up. It's up to us next transfer window to bring in these sort of players.

We will forever be pragmatic team, as long Conte is here. We could attack alot more like we did earlier in season, but you can see we now have a very safe and strict way of playing to WIN games. For such style there is no point of having several Edens.

Therefore even if Griezmann, Dybala, Verratti etc become available, I doubt we would try to create superstar squad. Improvements yes, but as long it doesnt unbalance team. We saw psg and their attacking stars try to play bunker (for whatever reason) and how they failed. 

IMO like it or not, we wont dominate games for a while. At best we can outpower the opponent and kill them with high efficiency. Conte will not risk defensive stability in order to bring one or two superstars. Thats why I doubt we would replace Matic with Verratti and Pedro with Dybala even if those two could arrive, mostly because they cant defend in same fashion. Same for wingbacks. 

I would say this team under Conte will get maximum of one more star player and even he will need to be quite a worker. Conte will always prefer Vidal type of players to give that stability. 

Not that Im against this. If we get back to efficient killer machine we were in 2005-2010, I dont mind. But those who think we will sign another "Eden" or two in summer and play fancy football next year are IMO wrong.

It's not the same pragmatism as Jose's. It's different. I wouldn't necessarily call Conte pragmatic per se. Fancy football isn't just possession football. Conte implements Juego De Posicion very well at CFC, and with more quality players we'll be able to play better football, it's simple. 

You look at Napoli or Dortmund this season for example. Not possession based or fancy sides at all but they have one of the best transition football in Europe. And it's mostly based on Juego de Posicion. Their attacks can be stunning. This is what Conte is trying to implement. You can certainly have superstars that play in this way. 

You're seriously under rating the likes of Verratti and Dybala if you think they can't play well in Conte's system. Also, seriously demeaning Conte's philosophy. That Juve team Conte created was amazing and he wanted to push it even further with more superstars, but couldn't, hence resigned. Even Griezmann. You're totally ignoring that he plays for the most pragmatic top team in Europe. Of course they'd thrive under Conte.

Don't think we're pragmatic because of Conte, we are Pragmatic FC and he was chosen because of that and if he was not the chosen one, would be someone of a similar profile. And there's nothing wrong about it, it's the reason of why we don't lose 5-1 to Bayern, instead we beat them with a much inferior team in their backyard, no one wants to face Chelsea even when we're in bad form.

edit: sorry for double post.

Really can't see him staying beyond this summer especially if we win the double this season. He'll have won everything there is to win in English Football.

 

From Hazard's POV, now's the absolute best time to make the move to Madrid.
