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. 

If memory serves, my whole argument in this very same thread was that Eden's influence in the game is more subtle than of say KDB's, especially for Belgium. And I remember a very similar story in last WC.

By subtle I mean that yes, movement, and dribbling *MAY* cause problems and open up spaces, but they also may not. It did NOT cause too many problems to France as they kept their shape despite all that dribbling from Eden (however many take ons). Dribbling is also less effective in tougher matches - can attest to that being Brazilian and having watched several world cups with many types of players.

There are assists and creating chances... Assist tally is important because it infers the quality of the chance created, although they also depend (as you point out) on the quality of the finisher and players around. However, Hazard is low on chances created too, once again, for the player he is/his tier. Regardless whether the chances turn into goals or not, he does not create enough chances nor is he consistent enough creating them, esp in tough games. He just does not put players in front of the goal often enough for me.

IMO his goal tally is less of a "problem" (just something he lacks) than his passing in the final third.

First it was chelsea that lacked quality around hazard. Now apparently belgium lacks quality too, but one thing is certain: it's never on hazard as he is immune to criticism.

I really dont understand RM going for Eden. He will sell them allot of shirts and advertizing but with their goal machine leaving who will they use now? It makes much more sense in them buying Mr potato head or Salah.

Who the fuck is Mr potato head?

Can't actually believe what I am seeing some people write on here. Hazard can improve, but we have a genuine top world class player on our team who has been a shining light in this World Cup. Like just truly baffled how after his performances in the last few games, people are actually trying to blame him. He was excellent against Brazil and was the only player who actually looked good against France. Hurts my eyes what I see people come out with sometimes, it genuinely does.

Hazard won't improve. Hazard is a very good player, but this is probably what he is about. He is world class, definetely, but will never be the kind of player that we probably expected he would be one day. I mean, Hazard won't ever be the best player in the world. He has been a Chelsea player for the past 6 years. Do you remeber a GREAT performance from Hazard in a big UCL match? We are talking about 5 editions of UCL.

Hazard is already 27 years old.  6 or 4 years ago he was 21/23. So the excuses that he was still a "kid" was okay back then. Right now, not anymore. 

To be honest I would choose Lampard and Drogba over Hazard easily.

Hazard has arguably been the best player at the World Cup which is the most prestigious competition in the world far more prestigious than the CL and unlike the Champions league, Hazard is on a team that isnt defending for 90 mins. You're back with your attention seeking bullshit again

But with RM losing one of the best goal scorers there are its daft them replacing them with Eden who is not a top goal scorer No matter what group of players you put him with or where you play him.

True but no one can replace Ronaldo's goalscoring.  You can't always make like for like signings. Neymar is going nowhere and the chances of Madrid signing Mbappe is less than 0 percent. The most realistic avenue for Madrid has to be Hazard whether we like it or not. Hazard and a number 9 like Icardi to replace Benzema. Kane will be very difficult for them as well. He's even more difficult to sign than Hazard at this point.

I think the whole Eden to RM move is strange personally.

Apart from not being the rop goal scorer they need I find it stranger with ZZ leaving APPARENTLY because of the simple fact Perez wouldn't sign Eden. Perez doesn't strike me as someone who would admit he was wrong so I dont know how he will explain it and what ZZ will have to say IF it comes about.

I think you make some very good points, but there are several things to consider. First, the club are not in a position where they would even consider an offer. We just came off a disappointing(to say the least) season, and with only one month left for the transfer window, finding a replacement could prove difficult. Second, while Eden has openly stated his admiration for Madrid, he has also openly stated his willingness to continue with Chelsea. As of now, it doesn't seem as if Eden will make the moves necessary to force a transfer. Third, I don't think Hazard has the profile Madrid are looking for as a replacement for Ronaldo. Eden is nothing like Ronaldo, both on and off the pitch. Lastly, Eden has two years left on his contract. Madrid need a major signing now and they can't play the "we'll sign him on a free in a few months if you don't sell now" game, so unless a move had been in the works prior to Ronaldo's move to Juventus, I don't see Madrid making a major push for Hazard.

In all likely-hood, Madrid have already secured Ronaldo's replacement as it would have not made much sense to sell him without a replacement lined up. We will find out very soon who that target is, but I think if it was Eden, we would have heard many stories about the transfer within the past two weeks or so, just as we did when Neymar left for PSG. At this point It's all guesswork, though.

Spanish sport repoting it could be a Battle between Barca and rm, with Barca having best papers..

If he decides to leave I'd rather see him at Barca than Real. Also I think it would probably be his preference to go Barca over Real now Zizou is gone.

Still think there's a huge chance he stays and resigns because if Sarri comes, works the team into his idea of football, brings Jorginho and a few others as well as possibly revitalise ageing players like Cesc, Willian, Pedro... its a different ball game all together.

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.

You mustn't have looked far, then. I think many believed he was nailed on to win it had Belgium reached the final.

 

Guess it will probably be between Modric & Mbappe now

Whats the point in keeping him if he wants out? its hard enough sometimes to get him in the mood to play on a good day.

I'm just hoping that IF he stays that he has a change of mentality and hopefully fresh blood and new management will put some vinegar in him.

Real Madrid fans would rather their club signed Eden Hazard than Neymar as they look to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a poll in Spanish publication Marca.
