The exact player we needed, i said it when we were linked to him the first time. Why nobody wanted to trigger the £21m buy out clause is a mystery to me, £21m in football nowadays is nothing, precisely fuck all. We now have a player that can have the same impact as Hazard but on the right. His touch is ridiculous, he's quick, he's technically fantastic and he scores goals and makes goals. A player with end product is what we've been crying out for. I think we're near complete now. I woke up excited yesterday, i'm even more excited now.

This guy has won fucking everything, he'll feel no pressure like Cuadrado for example who's trying to make a name for himself. This team has now got a lot better. Hazard was awful yesterday, we won. We wouldn't have won with the same line up as the first 2 games. If Hazard doesn't play, Pedro will and when they're both in form, beware premiership.

Just how cute is that?

I noticed there's a scratch-wound on his left cheek just below his left eye... why is that? because i'm pretty sure it wasn't there when the game started.

There was some hard tackle on him on the right side of the pitch by the end of the game, if I remember correctly. Maybe then?

Agree with everything you said except for Hazard being awful yesterday.

I thought he was great at times and good overall. Maybe the terrible conditions caused him not to be at his unstoppable best but he was still dangerous.

Really excited to see us with 2 top class wingers now. Feel like I've said that with every new RW signing but Pedro is a big step up on any of them. Imagine if he has an Alexis-type season for us and we'd also have Hazard on the other side!

anyone know how much Pedro is earning here?

120k, I think.

This guy, showed Salah, Cuadrado and Schurrle how you basically should make the jump. BUT. Give into consideration the fact that he comes from Barcelona with vast experience and his technical ability has been worked on there, immensely, and I am not surprised he can do wonders. BUT, what a debut, son. He just adds so much more to the right hand side.

I just don't think Hazard was in the game, he looked dangerous towards the end on the counter but he over complicates things at times and his end product wasn't there but as i said, we now have a player that can change a game if Hazard isn't at his best and when Pedro's not at his best, Hazard is there. When both are playing to potential, we could be amazing. And we've finally got Willian in his best position down the center. It's worked out so well.

Admins here are so inconsistent, if we have full names for players this guy should actually be called 'Pedro Eliezer Rodríguez Ledesma' and almost all our other players have long names :ph34r:. We need consistency guys :D

Other players say goodbye to their old teams criticizing everyone with selfishness, being ungrateful, ungrateful and bad people.

Pedro has been different today and he has behaved like a gentleman. He is doing that I have to swallow my own words and Pedro is closing my mouth. And I'm happy with that. I wish he can score in the next game at The Bridge to consolidate in our starting eleven.

Pedro - Pedro Rodríguez - Pedrito - Peter

Regards.

Fabregas on Pedro...

http://www.chelseafc.com/news/latest-news/2015/08/reaction--hard-work-pays-off.html

'I knew straight away he would make an impact because it was something we didn’t have in our team – a player who goes behind defenders, that goes one against one, and stretches the team. The mentality of this guy is fantastic and I’m very happy for him.’

So glad everyone is happy he's here. I knew how good he'd be, several people didn't want him, but what a game he had. I think he can be as important as Hazard for us.

Doesnt this season already feel fuckin different??

A few days ago I wasn't happy. I didn;t hold out much hope for us. Yes i thought after a month or so of training/experimenting we would wake up. But its amazing how a couple of players that we need in Pedro/Baba and with 2 players who we very much need going thru the transfer mill right now (one way or another) Im feeling much more optimistic.

YES we still have problems. Deadweood that needs chopping down to let the forest grow. And we need upgrades in 3 or 4 positions but at least Im happy that we dont SEEM to have any problems behind the scenes which is just as important.

We have a team willing to look at and spend big money on excellent players we badly need.

Im praying this week is good to us. If we get who we want then Im booking my flight to the San Siro guys.

The lads really well loved by Bara eh!
