Shame Matic robbed him of a second assist. That ball was amazing and inch perfect.

Costa on the end of that would have been buried.. He keeps this up he will continue to be favourite player in the squad

I will admit he has improved alot this season. specifically his passing game and creativity.

This is who I wanted to hear from. His biggest critic.

Fair play oscar :clap:

Great improvement this season, Cesc's addition has brought out the best out of him and Hazard. Less pressure, more pleasure. He plays like a connector/linking player, helps everywhere where needed.

Something I still don't like about him are his nonchalant backheels/backheel shots. He tries it too often whenever he has an OK/good game, he should stay focused and down to earth. For example, yesterday he could easily pass to Willian but he chose to do a backheel shot. Just keep it simple and kill the game, you can do this when we're 4/5-0 up.

Hazard has his Rabonas, Oscar has his backheels. Can't take that away from him, he'll eventually score one of those one day and it will be glorious.

He scored one a couple years ago. Against Brentford I think.

Oscar rocks. Brilliant both on and off the ball, offensively and defensively. His movement in particular today was incredible. Don't know how long he'll keep this up but I hope the movement will always be like this. He's a complete menace because of it.

what I realized is that lately he's been passing faster. Not at all instances, but in the attack many times he passed in the first touch or quickly after it.

That's vital for the pace of Premier League and it helps us to keep the fluidity going and make us more dangerous.

I'm loving all the progress he's been making in such a little span of time. It seems like he's progressing steadily in all areas of his game this season.

If only Willian would make up his mind as quickly..

or just choose better, even if he takes a tad long. He had a great match, no question about it, but it still showed at least 50% of the time his decision making in the third final is terrible, but you're right, he's also indecisive about what to do and that many times messes up with the decision.

Hopefully he'll get there, I really like Willian, despite all the frustration that comes with him.

He has immense flair and ball control though.

For me, he's the second most talented player in our squad after Hazard which makes it even more frustrating!

I was against the signing because I thought we were completely over-paying for him and he is too "light-weight" for the PL! :lol:

tbf, people would have expected that from you. You still think Obi Mikel is not a shit footballer.

Oscar the bricks behind the Roman Empire at Chelsea

Congratulations are in order for Mr Abramovich he has cracked the code!

For years the chairman has sat in one of the most lavish of directors boxes on offer in the world.

But, in recent seasons his football-watching experience has not been perfect, certain changes had to be made.

His leather seats were not what was bothering him; it was the years of viewing lacklustre football that meant the business tycoon was a frustrated man.

Every season he teetered with his system, making bold sackings and wacky transfers has been a mere means of displaying a desperation for something more.

But now the Russian can turn-up expecting to witness samba football, not having to fear this is going to affect his ruthless expectations of cross-competition trophy success.

Romans trial and error experiment has resulted in the positive realisation he needs to take a step back when it comes to transfers.

Before when he made mega-bucks transfers, he seemed to throw mud at the wall to see what would stick, but rarely would those signings adopt the style of play that both the brains and the piggy bank behind the club wanted.

This season, instead of making rash domineering decisions, it is understood he begun to openly communicate with others at the club before splashing out on the likes of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas.

Astute long-term signings like these were bound to improve the flair and results of last seasons trophyless side.

Furthermore, the managerial merry-go-round seen at Stamford Bridge is proof enough of the chairmans dissatisfaction with his recent employees.

Fans fondly remember Ruud Gullit and Carlo Ancellotis tenures in which similarly mouth-watering football to today was played.

Ancelottis sacking at the time miffed many, but now could look a stroke of genius.

The right transfer policy was not in place as signing David Luiz and Fernando Torres for extortionate sums led to no success in his second season.

Two previous managers to reach the Champions League final at Chelsea were sacked soon after for dull and tedious football Avram Grant and Roberto Di Matteo failed to adapt the technique which got Mourinho sacked in his first stint at the job.

Nullifying opponents attacks gained them success in Europe, but this parking the bus style looks a distant memory of what they are today.

Chelsea achieved their record-scoring Champions League victory in midweek against Maribor moving the ball with a swagger and will certainly look to seriously push on.

They are not playing gung-ho all-out-attack football. Each movement at Chelsea starts off at a slow tempo, matching the level of energy needed to expend, and crescendos into measured and well thought out destruction.

Free-flowing football, reminiscent of the samba approach Brazil have played over decades, is being made effective in a league which relies on strength, power and speed.

Chelseas effective samba football can be partially attributed to the adaptation of player roles.

Full-backs Branislav Ivanovic and Felipe Luis have proved adept at the top of the field, while Gary Cahill and John Terry look completely different to last year, not so concerned about holding a deep line but attempting to win balls in the midfield area.

However, the pinnacle of this energetic football comes from their unsung hero Oscar.

The 23-year-old is turning into the complete footballer, modelling his game on Kaka both offensively and defensively.

His high work-rate is demonstrated by hounding opposition players all over the pitch, looking to turn the course of play into the perfect attack.

Surging runs are not his game, unlike the silkiness and confidence of Hazard and Willian who bully defenders by running at them with the ball.

Oscar confuses defenders with his off-the ball movement and positioning, which is better than anyone in the Chelsea team, enabling the side to play in the way they do.

He knows who is around him and if there is not the potential of a goalscoring chance, he will pass it back and get himself into a better-placed position.

He has the highest shot accuracy of the Chelsea midfield this season and his goal against Crystal Palace last week is a prime example of his raw talent.

The current side could be on the road to great success, with words like quadruple and invincibles being bandied around.

But it is Oscar who is the clubs present, the clubs future and who will one day be looked back as the epitome of Abramovichs most successful achievement.

These are the times I can't stand B/R articles.. "Do Not Give in to Temptation: Remain at Chelsea". I'm struggling to remember the last time a player, in their prime, moved away from Chelsea to a bigger/better club. Perhaps Robben to Real? And even then you could argue that was prior to said 'prime'

Another shit game. Against Schalke he was the worst, and in many other games.

The only player that maybe is playing worst than Oscar in the starting eleven this season is Willian and Willian doen't have a garanteed spot in the team. The same happened last season but at the end Willian was a lot more important.

You can all continue saying how good he is, and the grat games he is doing... but in reality he was the weakest link between the AM's in the starting XI last season, and this season he will be again.

We compare the performances of Matic, Fabregas, Hazard, COsta and the regularaty of Willian and we can see that Oscar is far from what you say he is.
