  1. Any player who can lead us to two EPL titles whilst being Chelsea player of the year 3 times and winnng the PFA award is a Chelsea legend in my book, not Lampard level but to it’s naive to say he isn’t. That’s besides counting all the memorable goals and countless times he came through when the team needed him. I’m not one who’s stuck in the past to only acknowledge past legends, I'm forward thinking and I’m willing to crown new legends whilst respecting the old ones.
  2. Such a good post, very aware of the nuances in analysing stats. People need to analyse players in the context of their team and the systems they play in. For example we don’t think Hazard scores enough but yet feel Morata’s scoring record is okay as our lead striker even though they’ve scored the same number of goals. Salah has scored more goals than both combined but Chelsea are ahead of Liverpool in every way this season. Hazard scores less than some of his peers as we need less goals to win a game. Most of these players score loads of tap ins to beef up their stats, guy just doesn’t have th
  3. Well let’s agree to disagree. I’m just curious as to who this supposedly great players are that are that better than Eden. If you think he’s overrated and you’ve actually watched a lot of our games then I have no words for you. We just see football differently. Merry Xmas

  5. Lol okay. Im sure you can think of so many “best players” that Hazard is nowhere near. I’m sure most managers and players don’t think he’s one of the very best. I mean why rate a player who has been instrumental in two title wins especially when his team plays defensive football. He’s obviously can’t be as good as we think that’s why people keep comparing him to Messi and Ronaldo. I mean when KDB or Sanchez play well they are said to be the best in the league, when Hazard performs he’s said to be one of the best in the world. These ex players and managers really do overrate him for some reason
  6. Over Sterling or Sane ... Really? Well we are all entitled to our opinions. I’m sure most players, ex players and managers think otherwise. Matter of fact, the only players in City that come close to being mentioned in the same breath as Hazard are KDB and Silva. Hazard will elevate any team in the world atm. Imagine what he does for CFC even without seeing much of the ball and playing from deep. He will be so much more devastating when receiving the ball a lot, in better positions and a lot close to goal. My opinion, unless you’re Messi, Ronaldo or maybe Neymar he certainly will take your pl
  7. You’re mostly right but people are blinded by hype and media narrative. There is also a myth that Hazard is not consistent and that’s because they use the Messi/Ronaldo goal scoring yardstick to beat him. If you check his match ratings, average player ratings and MOTM awards, you quickly realize he mostly drops 7/10 at least with 9/10 every other game.
  8. Yes, I'm with you on his similarity to Suarez, especially when it comes to their doggedness and brilliant instincts.
  9. Belotti reminds me a bit of Costa with his sheer determination to harass opponents, but with a much higher football IQ imo. He has everything you will want in a striker and has no real weaknesses. Realistically, him leading the line is risky seeing as there's no way you can really tell how he will adapt to the EPL. On the other hand, I'll still take him as I believe both Lukaku ( although EPL proven) and Morata may also struggle to adapt to how Chelsea play and how teams set up against us. An additional benefit of Belotti will be that he will almost certainly improve Hazard's game (he's very g
  10. I really think he is trying to downplay himself and relieve some pressure prior to the Wales game. It's a way of putting more pressure on Bale. You never know though, but it's very possible, players do this all the time before big matches. I personally know how much he rates himself and the club and I'm taking this more as a "tongue in cheek" battle prep statement rather than taking it to heart and bashing "Belgians". Also, I'm not a Muslim but I find the reference to Muslim carrying a bomb a tard offensive, there are many other things to compare with, you don't have to bring religious jokes i
  11. So you meant potential to be even more fantastic then :). Criticising him for his performances this season is fine, but you know nothing of his ambition. You have to pay a little more attention to people's temperaments. He is not the type to show visible signs of anger or determination but chances are that he is quite determined and ambitious. "His character is quiet but very, very determined, (Hiddink). You dont get this far with very few career injuries without being meticulous about your work, no matter how talented you are. Also, Bale, Sanchez and Hazard are very different players in very
  12. Potential to be a fantastic player? He is a fantastic player, he's won most individual awards in the leagues he played in since he was 18. Also, unless you are in his head I dont get how you know he isn't doing the best he can at the moment. Mind you, not only does he have to play well for Chelsea, he also has to play well for himself as he has become a household name. Him being a prima donna, really? Do your research, even Jose who he supposedly didn't have a good relationship with said he is a humble star "He is humble, very humble. Very nice. Very polite. Selfish – zero. Egocentric – zero.
  13. Wow, you're so well informed..
  14. Exactly! Spot on, I couldn't have said it any better
  15. Well I'm new here and don't really know the level of attention people pay to players, but as a fan I know he has been without an agent for quite sometime even before he signed his new contract, so I would have easily dismissed the alleged story immediately. The point I am trying to make and not to you in particular, is that as fans we can do better than just believing these rumours and actually put simple facts together to get a clearer picture, rather than making assumptions based on conjecture.
