Im happy for him, he deserve this for a long time. Thats why it annoys me, he done some amazing things in Shaktar last season and havent got the call, now he's playing 3 games in Chelsea and he gets it? pathetic by Scolari and the Brazilian team... but anyway it had to happen.

Lucas fucking Leiva is in the squad and Fernandinho not :ph34r:

Actually the fact Lucas is in the squad alone deserves a :ph34r:

Btw what happend to Fred? (the striker)

Looking at their squad, I'd have Rafael over Maicon and Filipe Luis of At. Madrid over Maxwell, and any of Fernando of Porto, or Sandro or Fernandinho over Lucas Leiva. I'd also keep an eye on the likes of Coutinho and the lads at Shakhtar as well. But I'm happy Willian is in the squad and hopefully that should get him to perform even better for us.

trust me, that's not how Seleção works.

With the exception of Leiva vs Fernandinho, all other guys you suggested while very good, won't fit.

Menezes before Scolari got plenty of guys like those you suggested and we all saw how well that worked.

There's a certain profile of players that work in our NT and others don't. That's why we'll have Julio Cesar in the WC (the only player confirmed since August) despite him not playing one match for QPR in months. We need experience in the back (including dm), and that's how we work best.

In the AM and ST positions is where we're willing to make bets, but preferably having at least one or two experienced players in the squad. So if you make suggestions like that to replace Jo or Hulk, then they're likely to happen, but they're very unlike in the defense and even in the DM

I see, it's still a very strong squad nonetheless.

I have never doubted he was a great player, but I still think we should have used that 32mi elsewhere...

Find it funny that the praises (some OTT) for Willian so far has all been about his defensive workrate. While it does deserve credit, I don't think we pay 32m for an attacking player to just be good at defending...

He's still adapting... if anything he's struggling much less than I expected after playing in leagues like Russian and Ukrainian... none are known for their physicality and playing for Shakhtar is basically the same as playing for any Brazilian side 1) high amount of Brazilians 2) Brazilian style of play

Also he didn't play for months before joining us... he had no match rhythm or form at all.

Rapha

I feel like money was never the issue there. They have an opportunity to sign a player they've wanted for a long while and the player also wanted to come. So maybe it was more a question of pride and good opportunity than choosing where to put the money.

The FFP is a joke, I don't think we'd have problems if we had spent another 32M in an additional player and I don't feel like Roman doesn't have another 32M to spend.

2 assists and a goal with barely any minutes is quite decent, it's also worth a mention that he's been directly involved in quite a few goals besides his assists. I feel the defensive work has been talked about a lot with our players in general as it's the least Mourinho expects from his players, therefore, it you don't do it, or if you don't do it well enough, you pretty much don't play at all.

He's a very well balanced player and he's one that'll probably establish himself. He doesn't give the ball away he's fast and driven and he's got good technique. He offers a mixture of oscar's work rate and drive and shurrle's pace. He's also got a very good pass, he's one of the most 2 footed players you'll see too.

Well, how about his goal vs. Norwich? He certainly has it, but we just have to hope he can do it in England!

Errr, ya. Just 1 special goal and there's nothing much else so far. Still want to see more from him especially offensively..

Disagree, he have added a lot to Chelsea's game through his offensive passing, could have had an assist against Arsenal if the shooting had been better.

There is also skill in being a the right place at the right time, and even though he missed against Cardiff he was alert enough to almost score.

I think Schurrle is a great player that will become excellent, but the question is if Willian is not already excellent and can become fantastic.

Those are just bits and pieces or glimpses. Not saying he isn't great but so far, he still hasn't shown much attacking wise especially for one who was bought for 32m.
