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:

So I see that you're back to slating Jose again now the Fabregas story doesn't add up? Great.

dude, can you tell me one post where i say that jose did not deserve to be sacked.

http://forum.talkchelsea.net/topic/20792-chelsea-sunderland/?p=1189501

this is just one post from today and i can show another 10 on similar lines. i mean atleast actually read and know what you are accusing someone of.

understand what a person is saying rather than trying to be condescending.

otherwise, dont bother.

Great avatar.

We do need more Emenalo avatars in this forum!

Pretty much.

Sounds like he has been trying his hardest and yet is still unable to perform to a decent level.

His legs have gone - there's no magic switch to get them back.

You guys have great taste

Yep, that is the sad reality. Fabregas has always been a rather 'slow' kind of player. Yet, when he was playing for Arsenal and even Barcelona, there was more dynamism and 'pace' in his play. Nowadays, his physical engine has worn out ; there is no longer the little 'extra' of mobility (to not confound with speed) — and even agility — to get past his opponent or/and to offer himself more opportunities to pass the ball. Hence the dramatic drop of level he has endured while playing for us. Well, it is understandable for a player that has played professional football since he is 16 years-old (?). It was kinda the same problem with Torres : started at a high level at a really young age (and both of them captained their team at a young age, too) and started to decline in his mid-twenties.

Though, I do not agree that much with the 'unable to perform to a decent level' part. One have to admit that his role in the team was putting emphasis only upon his deficiencies : the defensive work and the speed. People conveniently chose to exempt Matic of criticisms because his partner was Fabregas — though it works in both ways. At the end of the day, the Serbian is neither fast nor has an exceptional positioning sense... Hence, for an attacking midfielder as slow as Cesc, it is really hard to accomplish a proper defensive work when your partner is also someone that has an erratic positioning and who is as slow as Matic...

Anyway, Cesc is no longer what he was and neither will be, though he has still a role to play. Firstly because for the few next years, unfortunately, we will not able to buy players much better than him so he has to play a role. And secondly, with a system that works and a good environment (i.e. not parking the bus), I am pretty sure we can get more than decent performances from him — in other words, he can still be useful.

Well tbh it's not the best thing to say on R4 in the middle of jose's sacking

So, he would rather focus more on taking legal action against someone than trying to get himself back into form? If that story is true, then he's dumb. Focusing on petty matters like that isn't going to help us turn our season around and win the fans back any time soon.
