  1. Hazard when asked if he regrets not joining Madrid sooner? Hazard: "On a personal level, I was really happy at Chelsea. It was special. Watching those Chelsea videos earlier was very emotional. I do not regret leaving Chelsea sooner".

  2. Lampard back will be fucking great IMO. I've read it all about he won't do this and he wont do that, he's average, he did nothing with Derby etc etc. This club is now under a transfer embargo, our best player has left and the previous manager didn't want to be here. The last manager had zero connection with the fans and club, this move ticks those boxes. The biggest trap the club can fall into is setting great heights for Frank in this first season, how the fuck can you without buying? Introduce younger players, let RLC, CHO and Mount flourish by playing them all the time and get the smil

  3. i've been reading comments by Madrid fans saying Hazard has joined a better club and that Chelsea ruined his career, no wonder he was asked that question if he regreted not coming to Madrid sooner, clearly trying to stir the pot, seriously what the fuck? Hazard as always was classy and professional with his reply. fucking spanish morons, fuck Real Madrid and their fanbase, too many bandwagons

  4. Think any manager that comes in and benches or worse, gets rid of Jorginho would be making a serious mistake. Guys shown more than enough times this season particularly in the last 10 or 15 matches he is more than good enough.

  5. Frank Lampard to become Chelsea’s first English manager in 23 years. Jody Morris will follow Lampard to Chelsea as his assistant. Petr Cech signing as the Sporting Director. (Sky Italia, Daily Mail and ESPN)

  6. Sorry, but not sure why we need to take parting swipes at players who gave their best and achieved a lot at the club. Hazard was loyal to Chelsea throughout his time here. If someone brings up his media comments to suggest that it seriously impacted our games, I'll just laugh. How about.. just say thank you and move on, if theres nothing better to say? I hope Chelsea does well. I hope he does well. If Chelsea meets Madrid, I hope we kick their arse. That's it.

  7. I'm not keen on Lampard taking over but if he does he'll have my undying support some on here are writing him off before a ball has been kicked. It's not a doomsday scenario it will be one of our own taking over not Allardyce or Pullis.

  8. Have to side with @Mana here. I really want Lamps to manage us at one point, he is my favourite player of all time, but I just don't want to see him being bashed by plastics and reputation demolished by this atrocious state the club is in at the moment. Let Roman sell up, clean up the mess that is our board and then let's try to make something of us again.

  10. Yeah man, keep clutching at straws. I think he has made it clear several times. He loves Chelsea. He has always loved Madrid. Ffs, Madrid aren't even traditional rivals. We beat them in the European super cup ages ago, but that's it. Not sure why fans are getting so worked up about things like these.

  11. BUt hE IssNt RedDy YeT!!! 100% agree mate. Ones in here have regurgitated the same old shit for weeks. He didn't bring Derby up, he's not ready, he hasn't proved himself. Personally I am properly excited about it. I don't care about his stats or whatever. Man bleeds Chelsea. Jody knows the youth inside out. Bring them in, give them time. Can't wait

  12. True, you will not catch Hazard doing what Courtois is doing now. And lot of idiots trying to stir the pot, including a few shitty tabloids trying to rub it into the face of Chelsea fans., that he's gone to Madrid. And what do you expect..clubs like Madrid and Barca unfortunately also come with a lot of bandwagon fans..most of which have probably taken notice of Hazard only after the world cup. Only Chelsea fans, and to a lesser extent, EPL fans, fully appreciate what Hazard has done. You look at all of Hazards presentation videos in Madrids channels, a lot of the comments are from C

  19. I doubt it. We showed unprecedented patience with Mourinho, Sarri and to an extent Conte. Lampard will be given even more leeway because sacking him for something petty would permanently turn the fans, plus I know the board are dumb in football matters but I do trust them to acknowledge that top 4 under current circumstances would be a bonus, not a do-or-die target. If we don't completely implode, I think he will get a long-term opportunity with Jody to slowly and patiently grow with us.

  22. Sarri made it difficult for himself ... During the early part when teams didnt understand him Sarri managed to get wins but once his strategy was found out ... it is then he didnt have a plan B. The reason Sarri is getting the stick is because he kept trying the same thing over and over again expecting positive results. There are total of only 2 games after Nov (once the opposition read him) i.e. the City and the final of the Europa where we looked like a team other wise we were poor & it boils down to the manager. I also believe he could have had more players but he didnt request fo

  23. She is usually great at selling stuff. (Even if we completely fucked up the kdb, salah, sturridge and lukaku sales but im not sure she was in charge of those) but she is shit at buying. And like in capital markets, buying and selling require completely different skillsets. So someone with such concentrated talents should not have such a wide range of responsibilities.

  25. I'm so excited by this. Been reading on here why this manager would be good and why that manager would be bad, it's been laughable. Lamps for me is top of the list, love the guy, if he does well or he doesn't whatever that means, just give him time he'll come through. Welcome home Frank

  26. I might be thinking heart over head here.., but it has always been a longitme dream that one of DD, JT, Lamps would one day manage the club. Am never going to say no, if that is indeed a possibility. Like Drogba himself said : “I think it is a very good option for the club. “Is he ready for the job? Well, when is he ever going to be ready?" “Does he have to wait until he is 40 or 50 to be ready? I think it depends on your experience and depends on your desire to succeed and do it. “If he feels ready I don’t think it is too early. Every summer is big at Chelsea. Every

  27. Oh, Hazard I will miss you. I don't disagree with the move but it doesn't mean I have to approve. England is conquered, the ever consumate professional hungers for new challenges and to step out of a comfort zone is difficult and admirable.

  30. othing with Eden, but do you think Drogba or Lamps would stay here if they played today? Just accept the fact we are not at the very best level in football, while Hazard is. And lets not ignore he always said its his dream to play there, so theres that. Doesnt change the fact he left 7 wonderful years here. As for legend status, Id say he is pretty much only below Lamps, Didi, Cech, Terry. Not there because he left at 28, but close.

  31. I think it is a nice way to end Eden's passage by showing a video of him when he was only 10 years old! His youth team (Braine) got in the 1/4 finals of the belgian Youth cup. Starting at 00:26 seconds, interviewer asks him if he's feeling allright: "a little bit stressed. But I feel good about myself!". "What would you think the result will be" => EDEN on a very cute and typical Eden way "we will lose! OH no wait, we're are gonna wait. But I don't know how much"! After the game, which they lost 6-0 (their first loss of the season) Eden gets back in front of the camera at 02:12. "was it i

  32. Yeah, I expect United to have a significantly improved side next season. Whether Olé Gunnar is up to the task of taking them to the top I don't know. Spuds will surely add to their squad this summer. Lampard getting a Hazard-less Chelsea team with no new additions to 4th spot would be one of the most ridiculous achievements ever.

  33. Not that I'm optimistic myself but not sure why everyone is all doom and gloom over the top 4 right now. The season hasn't even started and we don't even know what's going to happen. We don't even know if Arsenal, United are going to improve significantly for next season. Arsenal don't seem capable of attracting top players and Lacazette/Aubameyang can only take them so far while United look like they might take the youth route under Solskjaer judging by stories of his transfer targets.

  34. From what i heard he's been offered a ambassadorial role and turned it down as he wants to carry on coaching. Is it me or has his return gone a little bit too under the radar? You would think his return after all this time even as assistant would have caused unprecedented fanfare but he's barely been adknowledged atall, not even an initial fuss was made of him.

  35. This. If we don't qualify for the Champions League but show progress with the playing style, playing squad etc, I doubt the board will just sack Lampard and start over again. Like you alluded to, they might not be the brightest of people but even they can't be that dumb to turn this job into 'get Champions League or you're fired' thing. No one is going to take up the job in the future if we go down that road.

  36. Lampard shouldn't even accept the job if those are the expectations. We barely managed Top 4 with Hazard and now we are without him, have a transfer ban, and our rivals strengthening. So unrealistic.

  37. Media knows fuck all. Looks like there is a chance we won't let Sarri go, if we can't find a proper replacement. So, if we start the pre-season with Sarri, I will be happy enough.

  38. Derby will demand £4m if Chelsea try to make Frank Lampard to be their new manager, Sky Sports News understands, due to a clause in his contract at Pride Park. Chelsea are yet to make a formal approach, but Derby are bracing themselves now an agreement has been reached for Maurizio Sarri to take over at Juventus. Under the terms of his deal, any club wishing to take him is required to pay £3.5m in compensation to Derby - that figure rises to £4m if the buying club is playing Champions League football - as Chelsea will next season.

  39. We are crap anyway you look. CL and title are way off. So at least we can make the most of it and develop youth. I rather see some future planning and then rip the rewards compared to grinding top 4 year after year with zero optimism.

  40. Almost storming off in the league cup final with millions watching around the globe. (I know what Kepa did was bad, but that doesn't make what Sarri did RIGHT) He's just as bad as Conte (although I can't remember a Conte situation is as bad as Sarri, except the Costa drama and those incidents weren't even filmed)

I will always appreciate and remember fondly what Hazard did for my club but time to move on now like he has. My loyalties are with Chelsea and I really couldn't care less how successful or unsuccessful Hazard is for Madrid so long as it has no impact on Chelsea.

  45. I have to agree with @Tomo on this, our squad I don't believe is anywhere near as bad as everybody makes out and if we had a reliable striker I would be very confident of a comfortable third place finish, even without Hazard. We're not going to be challenging City and Liverpool next season but I don't see any reason why we can't still be competing for top 4 with the rest of the 'big 6'. Some areas could obviously be improved but with the exception of our strikers, the rest of our starting XI is on a par or better with what Spurs, United and Arsenal have. We usually go with two strikers in
