I saw numerous comments raising the question as to how would Fabregas fit in a Mourinho's team if Juan Mata (and to a lesser extent de Bruyne) could not. It is to misunderstand what was the situation

Already has more medals for Chelsea than Arsenal.

:lol:

I find his MOTD comment difficult to believe for a player that has played for 2 of the most ball dominant and creative teams ever in their prime. We played brilliantly in the 1st half but barca and Arsenal in particular have had much better halftime performances during his time at both clubs.

I have seen Barca and Arsenal literally batter teams into absolute submission with the opposition just desperate to hold on for dare life and not even able to advance the ball past their own half. for all the hype about our first half performance, we still only created about 5 clear cut chances and gave the ball away on a couple of occasions. The 2004-2009 Arsenal and 2011-2013 barca have had much better performances both halftime and fulltime.

But then again that's his opinion.

That's what happened in the first half though. It was complete and utter domination and only their keeper kept the score from being 3 or 4 (Foster made great saves to deny both Terry and Oscar; Costa missed a great chance by a few inches). It was as dominant a performance as anything I've seen from Barca, Arsenal etc so it's not far-fetched on Fabregas' side to make such a statement, imo.

I know it's only West Brom and the score wasn't reflective of how the game went but that first-half was pretty amazing. I haven't felt that relaxed watching a game in years.

24 sprints but with a total distance of just 9.4 metres between them. The Chelsea midfielder clearly lets his brain do most of the quick stuff because he can’t be accused of not working – nobody in the 2-0 win over the Baggies covered more than his 7.2 miles.

Ha, I remember when we were linked to signing Fabregas and some rival fans and even certain journalists from factions within the football media were perplexed as to why we were interested as he wasn't a "Mourinho-type player". Probably one of the most silly, overused and pointless phrases in current football vernacular.

It was always a criticism I had of him to be honest, typical Arsenal player, wanted to do the job going forward but nothing else, if its any manager its Jose that can shape a player to be better than before who ALREADY has attacking abilities and things need refining.

I can't wait for the Spurs game, got my ticket, scarf at the ready.

To be honest I wasn't sure what Mourinho planned with Fabregas. I thought that Fabregas would need to adapt and wouldn't find "his game" and so on. I think that I, like a lot of people, couldn't foresee what Mourinho planned for Chelsea, given the way sort of had to play during the previous season - lightning fast counter-attacks and hoping that our front man would get a toe in or that Hazard finishes off the move. Obviously Mou tweaked his system, because now he can - and we can see now how much sense the Fabregas signing actually makes.

It really wasn't that difficult to see for me. We've been screaming for a player like Cesc in the pivot for years.

This guy is absolute class personified. The vision of this dude is so unreal it surprises me every game I watch. Tonight Schalke didn't stand a chance with those pin-point passes/crosses all throughout the game. I am so damn chuffed he's here. What a bloody signing.

Keep it up Fabrepass!! :D :blue scalf: :blue scalf:

Fabrepass was absolutely on fire today. He had such a big smile on his face throughout the whole match. I really believe him when he says he's been having the most fun he ever had in football. The way this team has been mouth watering the last couple of matches. We're fluid, dangerous, deadly, involving, unstoppable and most of that goes through his feet.

He had a couple of through balls today that were absolutely stunning and his corners are so good that even the opponents feel tempted to score from them.

I don't remember a signing as good as this one in terms of fitting a team such as he had. Hazard, Costa and others are definitely amazing signings, but Cesc just fits so perfectly, it's so bloody perfect!
