10. Eden Hazard

Started by DavidEU,

This BS is partly why all skilled players prefer Spain and Germany to the EPL.

When Eden comes out with that face he had last night then you know hes in the mood for a craic. (Its a shame he doesn't get that face on to order)

And what results from that mood is moves like the one he puuled on Smalling. Made him look like a hammer chewer!

 

Heres his bits from the night

Great to see him being protected by the ref. Props to Michael Oliver for having the balls to paint a target on his back (not sure he would have done it at Old Trafford though). And Jose himself ranted a couple of years back how Hazard wasn't protected well enough, now he sends his thugs to kick the shit out of him and when his main thug gets sent off he moans.. again. Whatever, Eden was on a mission to show Pogba and co. exactly how to play football. I also wonder if best ever player Neymar could handle such treatment for 5 straight years without major injuries and hissy fits. I have a feeling he would dive so hard here he would reach the Earth's core.

We're all worried about signing new players. But the most important thing this window is to keep Eden. He we do that, then it's a successful window for me.

Does Eden even have a reason to leave. if we could just get in some support in the attack and a midfielder with passing ability. This team is as good as any other.

A reason to leave is simply the fact most of us fall for 'the grass is greener on the other side'.

More fans, louder fans, larger-than-life ego-boosting TV pieces & newspaper articles, more money, better weather/quality of life, play for the same team your idol did which just happens to be the most prestigious team on earth, score more & get kicked less. He'd become a hero, even to fans who don't even support the likes of Madrid.

Vs.

Become a local hero for Chelsea, which he's done. Um, 'prove he can do it in England', which he's done.

So what else do we offer him which others don't? Living in London? One of the biggest falacies in football. London is a shithole compared to its peers. More litter, stabbings & pretentious people than anywhere on earth. Doesn't even provide a healthy amount of sun/Vitamin D, nowhere in the UK does. It's only been a draw in the times of London vs. Manchester vs. Liverpool; days which are gone. What is the indication we're providing a long-term environment he & his family would stay happy with?

There are better options than us. He's already one of our best ever players; he's already won the league; he will win the Champions League wherever he goes if anywhere. There's literally no reason to stay here much longer other than 'loyalty' which many are quick to point out doesn't exist anymore beyond Totti, DDR & Terry. Nainggolan is probably the only 'modern' player who so far has displayed 'loyalty' (which won't last much longer surely). Now why are so many players loyal to Rome, even though they aren't as successful as say, Chelsea?
Great weather, great food, very vocal & passionate supporters & press. There's a reason we can't attract Nainggolan; there's a reason we failed to attract DDR.

We are not the massive draw we were; none of the English clubs are. Whereas other countries have clubs only becoming bigger draws with more rapidly-growing fanbases.

I think Hazard has a bigger connection with Chelsea than most fans realize.., and I think its mostly because of his connection with the last generation of Chelsea players, and appreciation for what they've accomplished here.

Joe Cole and Didier Drogba were a big influence on his decision to come here (not discounting our win in the CL the year that he joined). He also looks to get along well with Frank Lampard and JT. When you listen to recent interviews with Lampard and Joe Cole, I think they definitely see him with having great potential to carry their mantle forward for the next generation of Chelsea players.

I concur. He's only played for Lille before so I think it's fair to say this clubs means something to him. He's mentioned loving his life in London, has grabbed or kissed the badge more than a few times and has never expressed plans to leave the club. Every time they ask him about links abroad he says he's happy at Chelsea. I'm not saying he's a fan but he's obviously good at Chelsea (as long as the club remain competitive).

Hazard turned 26 in January. This is Hazard's fifth season at Chelsea. He's never leaving this summer so that's 17/18 confirmed. I find it hard to imagine him leaving at 27 after six seasons for Chelsea. But it's possible. If he doesn't leave at 28, he'll grow old at Chelsea.

Just hope Hazard doesn't go with national team. Would be great for him to have some rest :)

It would be fantastic if Eden could get a nice two weeks rest before the real shit starts boiling up.

Is he travelling with the Belgium team?

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.

5 seasons. How fast time flies...I remember all the rumours where he will go as if it was yesterday.

Glad he's pulled out. Now, don't eat too many pizzas Eden, stay in top shape, come back refreshed and finish this damn league title off for us.
