He and Ross Barkley are the two most technically gifted English players I've ever seen.

Wow that's a very big statement. in recent times alone I can think of Scholes and Rooney as being technically superior and then the older generation you have technical wizzards like Gascoigne,Hoddle,Waddle et al.

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:

Ross Barkely is a headless chicken, no football brain whatsoever, whenever he gets the ball all he wants to do is run with it.

JWP on the other hand is not as technically gifted but is so smart when on the ball and is one of the best set piece takers in the league.

Le tissier, Sir Bobby charlton, Mcmanaman, John Barnes, Paul Scholes+ when it comes to crossing/long passing and shooting only David Beckham and Frank Lampard created quite a few moments of pure technical perfection any footballer in the world would have been proud of.

I wouldn't mind trying to get JWP, although he'd cost a fortune, better than Barkley imo.

I should have said "in the last ten years".

Rooney has never lived up to his potential, though he is a very good player technically.

Agree. These are the type of English players the club should go for imo. Get em early, pull of a 'Chambers' like Arsenal, even though they're already quite expensive. Not good enough to be a regular yet but more than capable as a squad player (so no death loans).

Cesc Fabregas: Time for this Chelsea team to prove it has the winning mentality

Telegraph did an exclusive interview with Fabregas..

Great article. I really like the part where it is just a link to this exact page.

Fabregas is so good. He had a look around when the ball was already travelling to him. He had to make the decision in less than a second and it nearly paid off. And he didn't even need to touch it to be brilliant, it was pure vision. And of course Costa chasing it down to the last. :wub:

While he was injured, pretty sure he would have been subbed off has he stayed on anyway. Looks slow and not up to it in these tie physical games. Looks like Barcelona fan' criticism of his big match performances are not exactly wrong. At City he was ineffective and same with last week. At least has been racking up those assists in smaller games. Ramires certainly gave us much more energy when he came on, next game against PSG away I would start Ramires instead of Fab.

He will have his better games,when Ramires will play with him and Matic.A good box to box player is the key to bring the best out of Cesc

Fabregas-Ramires

--------Matic

Yep that would be fine too, dropping Oscar though and he shown tonight he can WORK and get himself involved in big matches now.

He's missed me rooting for him all way from Brazil :P

In all seriousness though, he has to be ready for Saturday, we need him, even more so as a #10... although without Yaya I'm not sure only Silva will be enough to cause our defensive midfield that much trouble. I mean Silva is quality, top player, but I think City miss a lot without Yaya. Either way, I'd rather play Rami in the pivot and have Cesc as #10 than have Cesc in the pivot.

Not happy about his performance tbh. I was excepting better from him defensively. Matic had to work for two midefielders.

Hope he is ok for Saturday of course.

I have to admit, he looks like an old man in high tempo games. In fact, he looked like Gerrard. This is not an easy problem to solve.

Coutinho dribbled him around the pitch and it was annoying. Hope he's not injured we have a lot of small teams to play where he'll bag us some points
