Re: your comment in the MDT on Willian only dribbling sideways or backwards most of the time - it makes sense because he's out wide and in a more confined space, so we don't get to see his dribbling skills as often. He definitely does have the ability to dribble past players in tight spaces (going forward of course). Remember the chance he set up for Ramires last weekend?

That's the thing though. You have more space out wide. That's why dribblers play out wide. Only special players can dribble through the middle, where it's congestive. Of course, on the counter-attack, there's space to exploit if you're fast. (That run in the second half I think it was btw, when he tried to play Hazard through on the right, I've never Willian run so quick on the ball, that was some serious pace.)

I'm sure he's better a dribbler on the left, cutting inside on the weaker side of a fullback, but I highly doubt he's capable of dribbling through the middle. Not that the centre is a place you want players to dribble.

Great deserved result. Poor first half but much improved in the second and created chances almost at will. Could have finished 5-6 in all honesty.

Willian was brilliant and I thought Iva had an excellent match despite the miss-position for the goal. He did very well in both offense and defense especially in the first half where I thought he was our best defender by a mile. Also very good game from Cesc as well.

Drogba who "has lost it"

Ramires who "can't pass"

:lol:

Holy shit I just love football karma sometimes!

Both those things are still very true. Neither of those players should be in the squad next season with all due respect to them.

I was sick of telling people how good Willian really is when played in the right position and given more freedom to do things on the ball, rather than being played as a wingback. Glad Jose has seen it too and given him some room to do his thing, because he has been phenomenal the last month. Two MOTM performances the last two game.

And I think you'll find some of the "Boring, Boring, Chelsea" chants were coming from our own fans mocking Arsenal and Leicester fans. Haha. I found it hilarious to be honest.

Oh yeah, Stevie G, come take notes off Terry to really find out how to not "let it slip". Captain there when you need him.

Absolutely beaming after that match. Really turned it on in the 2nd half, and Leicester did fuck all.

Willian was great today with his work-rate and pace with the ball forcing the issue/ and being that spark plug.

And would you know it JT and Drogba provided the goods as they have so many times over.

I know a lot of people (me included) want us to finally move on from Drogba, but you gotta appreciate these final joyful contributions he's providing to the club.

It wasn't his fault Costa & Remy are injured, and he's trying his best to still be a productive player for us, and he's done it again. Tha King!

I prefer to think about next season once we're done with this one (not that I agree with you).
