10. Willian

He had a run of 3-4 good games, now he's back to the same old Willian. Atm this is by far my least favourite player, I'm no fan of Ramires as well but atleast he does something useful most of the times.

Thank god he made that early pass for Remy to score yesterday. Could have easily taken the ball to the byline and crossed it straight to a Hull player.

I'm with you mate. Antithesis of what exciting footballer should be about. Completely devoid of any excitement, this player. Mechanical man without even passion and character, Azpilicueta for example also is mechanical but has passion about him at least.

Willian has assisted only 3 Premier League goals in 28 matches this season.

He has managed 2 in one game against France.

Not only he assisted twice but also plays very well.

Mourinho kills his vibe.. He was such a good player at Shakhtar and he's still got it.

AND what does that suggest????

Don't play a player that Likes to to cut in on his strong foot at a position where he can't do that.

thanks that explains EVERYTHING .. why we play a RB at LB and a CB at RB .. in the old days Rt footers played on the right and Left footers played on the left .

It seemed to worked well

How about that then? In a game in which Willian didn't have to play as auxiliary RB and defer to Ivan (or in this case Danilo) on every occasion, he was able to produce a great performance against a side of real quality. People can argue that Willian's problems in attack are 'nothing' to do with Mourinho's tactics/instructions and everything to do with the player's own deficiencies, but the way in which he has been playing (and producing) for Brazil under Dunga provides a strong argument to the contrary as the sample size begins to grow larger.

Jeez that would be too mainstream.. Too simple. Too effective.

Not to mention that Zouma played as DM and Fábregas is slowly becoming a DM too :)

I certainly dont point out Willian is suddenly world class winger or sth, but its clear as day that Mourinho is sole reason why Willian, salah, schurrle, cuadrado show so little in our time, creativity wise.

His instructions are killing our attack and no one can prove it otherway. He kills the spirit in players and forces them to concentrate on what Rb does instead of what Rw does. Or they will get benched.

Hazard is one that Mou gives alot of freedom, and he excells at that. If other attackers would have it, our attack would be much more fluid.

I think too many sessions go for tactical defending and positioning instead of trying some attacking actions.

But thats not it. Our attackers have to cover up for defenders shit they make and it costs us alot. Mourinho has to work more on defense and offense for next season IMO.

Thats why its kinda pointless to keep signing right wingers because everyone will be instructed the same and it will kill all the creativity in them. I guess even if we bought Messi, Mourinho would told him to play as secondary RB, him or hazard.

Exactly. As you (and others) have been noting, it honestly doesn't look as if Mourinho has the squad practicing/rehearsing attacking moves at all. Against France, Brazil's attacking play was slick, controlled, and effective, 'despite' having Oscar and Willian occupying two of the four attacking positions; to listen to some posters on Chelsea forums, you would think that such attacking play should be impossible for a team that deploys both of these players simultaneously.

Willian's performances for Brazil are particularly notable, because he is producing end-product fairly consistently (2 goals and 3 assists in 7 games) whilst also contributing well defensively. Dunga has managed to strike the correct balance with Willian and Danilo (the RB) on the right flank, and 'strangely' enough, it DOESN'T involve Danilo (a more natural attacking full-back than Ivanovic) bombing forward at every opportunity; Willian is very much the player responsible for the majority of the attacking play down that right-hand side. The effects of having an increased amount of attacking freedom (and defensive security behind him) are obvious; Willian attempts to dribble more frequently, displays more of a willingness to attempt through balls, and even makes occasional off-the-ball runs in behind opposition back-lines. At first I thought that these performances of Willian's were simply 'one-offs', but he is continuing to produce them quite consistently when playing for Brazil, irrespective of the form he has been showing at club level.

In short, both Oscar and Willian are receiving proper coaching for their attacking play in the Brazil NT, and it is allowing them to display something closer to their full attacking potential; they are NOT 'world-class' attacking players, but they are not as far from being so as you would think from watching their attacking contributions for Chelsea.

Unless we play Azpi at RB next season, it won't matter how much Mourinho works on the defense...he'll just let Ivanovic do anything he wants on the right wing and force Willian/Cuadrado to cover him

Hopefully those rumors of PSG, Bayern Munich being interested in Ivanovic are true....
