People say he is best player in the league for years but when you think about it... 
He is soon 30yo, has just 2 PL titles and in one of these seasons played just 28.4% of PL games.
Unless City win many big trophies in the next 3 or 4 years his career is nothing special. I mean for someone he people would label as one of the best PL players in history...
Hazard only won two titles as well, Suarez won nothing and he scored 31 goals and made 17 assists in 33 matches in one season. Titles are usually not won by the offense, titles are won when your team is able to actually defend.

For Christ's sake, how many times will we have to go through this...?! Hazard earns 540 000 fucking EUROS per month, which does 135k euros per week = £116k at the current exchange rate. All French-spe

The only way KDB is gonna get back in the Chelsea lineup is by actually playing well, something he hasn't done since this summer.

I stayed away from this topic as long as I could — and hopped to do so for the upcoming months — but I am too bothered by what's going on in this topic. And, Choulo, if I'm quoting you on this, it's n

just sold the wrong Belgian at the time - honest mistake. :ph34r:

Hazard was brilliant here, just sold him at the start of his decline for a big bag of money. That was one of the most brilliant complete deals ever: Buying him, let him shine for years, sell him at the end of his career for three times as much <3

I know... just a jest and a bit of personal preference in terms of characteristics: think KDB is the rarer commodity. Belgium will suffer when he's gone. Big fooballing countries go decades without that type of player.

It surprises me you see it that way given how highly you thought of him before we bought him. I agree tho. KDB is a very rare player. Incredible talent but not a showboat. Simply a very creative player with a very straightforward way to play. KDB will probably never win the very big prizes but everyone who saw him play should be able to say what a special player he was.

Yes, overall I know that Suarez had an incredible career. But winning the PL was not something he achieved, even though his stats were insane.

On Havertz, I still rate him highly, but KDB is a different beast overall. If Havertz could get half of KDB's passing abilities, he will definitely reach WC level. But KDB and Havertz are different players though. I think that Kai, if he fulfills his potential, might score a little bit more goals, but assist wise he will not come close to KDB.

Also negotiated his contract with City directly apparently. Didn't do it via agent etc.
