Willian's heat map vs Man City.

From Mata to Oscar to Willian. Everyone does their best when they play in the hole. :wank2:

And arguably Hazard too! There definitely seems to be so many no. 10s nowadays and much fewer true wingers.

You can't be a generic number 10 any more, if so you need to be technically perfect like Pirlo. You either need to be tricky (Hazard) or a physical specimen (Vidal) to grab people's attention.

Yeah today the nr 10 role is the "coolest" role in football I guess and everybody wants to be one.

I bloody HATE any squad being built around this player. If he cannot tackle well, nor hold up the ball, he's not doing enough for me. If he can do those things, I approve of this kind of number 10. But someone needs to be a real centre midfielder and someone needs to be a real winger. For me, Chelsea should be able to play 4231, 433, and a 3rd formation effectively. No squad should be dependent upon solely the 4231 formation and dependent upon some advanced, central midfielder behind the striker. drives me nuts seeing this same shape and movement time and time again. just not enough. It is OK to utilize this 4231 formation, but this number 10 player does not deserve as much spotlight, glory, nor status in the world of football when strategy involves him dribbling in front of defenders too often.

I am admittedly not Lampard's biggest fan, but I will say that it's been foolish that Chelsea have adopted the 4231 formation and stuck with it so frequently while it has not suited Frank during this last years with the club. Point is, the center midfielders and the CF in a 4-3-3 can be just as effective as a 'number 10' in the hole.

Very good performance. If only he would not hold on to the ball so long most of the time. Quicker 'handling' alone would make him a much better player.. wonder if he'll ever improve on that.

Nonetheless, fine job.

To me Willian fills the gaps Schürrle has and otherwise. Schürrle has amazing runs and knows where to be to receive a ball. Willian silky touch (tbh, although Hazard has excellent technique, it looks clumsier then Willian's) is what sets him apart. Sometimes he tries to be too safe by passing the ball back (or standing still when he hits a defensive wall), but he rarely loses it.

He was my "favorite player" all year and when I changed it 2 games ago to Azpi, he's played out of his skin since... :ph34r:

Haha, keep it with Azpi then! :lol:

I really don't understand why you guys praise Willian so high. He is not creating enough chances which is his job.

He's rated because he puts in one hell of a shift for the team, what he lacks in some areas he makes up in others, what's not to understand?
