My son with Eden today [emoji7]

I hate Eden Hazard because he hasn't already scored 200 goals for Chelsea and he because was bought for £32 million and because other people like him and because other people hate him and because he h

I think Hazard has reached the stage for many people where even playing well isn't seen as good enough any more. He has to be on fire for entire games otherwise he will be criticised for not doing enough. Nobody else in the team seems to get that kind of scrutiny by the way; other players will be assessed for their general performance but Hazard's game will be broken down minute by minute: "Well he was quiet from 3-9, picked it up for 5 minutes but then slowed down again. WHY? Had a good period from 21.12 to 27.32 but then inexplicably went missing for another SIX MINUTES! Where the hell did he go?! Bottler." :Goober:

To right, and to think we let Malouda go to accommodate this clown :Goober:

Just finished the game as I missed it yesterday and tbh, I'm confused whether I watched the wrong game or not. I'm really hoping people here are just being naive and throwing around words like "excellent" loosely because aside from 2 or 3 dribblings Hazard's performance was nothing I'd ever call excellent. Robben's performance vs Spain at the WC was excellent, Zidane's performance vs Brazil at the WC 2006 was excellent, Cech vs Bayern 2012 was excellent. If you're seriously considering Hazard's game yesterday up to those standards you're getting carried away waaaaaay to easily.

Yeah Hazard has his dissapear moments in game where he does nothing in attack or defence for several minutes. Then he makes something fantastic though, but he has to be more consistent.

Also he is fast, but many times he looks like he is slowest guy on pitch. Thats evident when he tracks the ball. His dribbling should also include more pace to beat defender quicker and not allow opposition to get back in formation.

He looks slow SOMETIMES because he dribbles to maintain possession instead of making something happen by driving into the box like his goal. Robben/bale does that with their every dribble so they looks fast and dangerous. Imagine if hazard does it more often, his dribbling makes him one of the hardest players to take the ball off.

Hazard will learn to take the mantle more often soon enough, he's still young.

People are really taking this "consistency" thing way too far.(basically what Styles said couple posts before)

You can't expect Hazard to create danger when he doesn't have the ball or expect him to be brilliant every single time he gets on the ball.

I was lucky enough to see the greatest English dribbler of all time . Sir Stanley Mathews .

His method was to stand absolutely with the ball at his feet ,, and then accelerate over 5 yards. Rarely could a full back stop him .

Hazard is one of the very few I have seen using this method . HE IS SUPERB

I'm gonna look him up. I like Hazard's style though. I don't want him to be like Robben, selfish and frustrating despite several moments of brilliance. One minute he'll leave you in awe, the next he'll have you cursing his name.

I still haven't watched the first half yet - my internet has been acting up until now, and I was posting through my phone basically... I plan to catch up with the match soon, but based on the vid posted last page, I don't know how could someone call his first half bad.

People go from one extreme to another with Hazard so often... He seemed quite good and tried to create something. Maybe he wasn't flashy enough and that's why people labeled him bad in the first... I swear I don't understand it.

the first half the team were very poor ,, took over 20 mins to get the ball to Hazard.

a combination of our sloppiness and their hard pressing . I always felt we could dominate in 2nd half.

Hazard and Oscar along with Bran drove things forward

He's still so underrated by many people here. He was beyond every player on the pitch on Saturday. I honestly can't remember a player who creates so much with such flair and makes it look so easy.

I'd recommend that you re-watch Saturday's match and watch Hazard's ability to play his teammates on into space. He's unparalleled by any player in the world in this aspect.

He's a lot like Zizou and Ronaldino but he adds his own flair.

Not Ivanovic or Courtois.
