Has been since Mourinho left.

Hmmmm....comparing Oscar to Frank...

I'm pretty sure the only similarities are the number 8 on the back mate. Oscar is the type of player who only has his tail up when the team are winning, whereas we all know what type of player Frank was for us. 

Funny coming from you since you want to criticise Hazard to the hilt when he's playing injured. Fact is, Oscar has always been this bad but Hazard's previous form does not even buy time with some fans for a bad patch of form during a difficult time. Maybe you just don't like him because he pushed away your idol Mourinho?

Mourinho isn't my idol. Think my idol is still Dimmi Kharine. Loved the bloke and his goalkeeping top in 94-95 looked a lot like the chocolate eclairs you'd get in the newsagents just down from the old Fulham Broadway entrance. 

I'm not criticising Hazard to the hilt. Think the hilt in this place is somewhere closer to calling the guy a cunt and a cancer. I'm mildly questioning his attitude but I'm probably a bit 'old-school' in that regard.

Oscar isn't much like Frank either, sadly. I'd still look to offload the guy but he took his goal very well and got into the right position.

Mikel is excellent with the ball in tight areas. Always has been. Certainly better than Matic in that regard.

My issue with him is simply his attitude. I don't think he prepares himself properly for the start of the season hence his slow starts, every report says how he's the first off the training pitch and into the canteen when we've been used to players like Lamps and Didier putting in the extra hours so they're better players....I just think it's all so easy for him that he's never looked to make himself better and that's fine. He's got a lovely young family and he's doing what he loves but you always want those players who put everything into everything they do don't you?

 

What was your thoughts on Oscar's attitude to saving himself for the World Cup in the second half of 13/14 then? As soon as Mourinho sold his competition in both Mata and KDB? Pretty shit was to repay the faith a manager has shown.

Your argument is based on hearsay, you have no idea what he's like in training. I'll only judge what I can see and I saw a man who was trying to play on despite clearly being injured.

Mikel can pass with either foot which helps a great deal.

Best footballing performance since the proverbial "Swansea away" that has been hung on to for how many months. Everyone has played well. 

Starting to look like a FOOTBALL side, rather than a Rugby team up in Leicester.

Absolutely shocking. I thought he phoned in the rest of the season and I thought it was slightly hilarious Brazil were so shit too. Wouldn't have been sad to see him gone then.

If the news of Hazard only came from one source then I'd agree but it's widely reported. It's like you saying about Oscar saving himself, again that's not something we can prove but we both agree with it. I just don't think Hazard bases his entire life around football and 99% of people probably have that work/life balance. We just have different expectations as supporters.

Excellent first half imo. Really enjoyed our play especially after the goal. Thoughts:

- Apart from the goal Oscar has been by far the weakest of our front three, shows glimpses but not enough. Ta for the tap in though mate. 

- Costa played very well, no tantrums. Blimey, is Guus' chilled out approach working wonders?

- Zouma is an absolute warrior. That tackle was like Ricardo Carvalho in his prime, I can't praise him any more than that because I loved Riccy!

- Mikel has been excellent. Retains the ball so well in tight areas and has calmed down proceedings, lucky not to get booked though..

 

Come on Chelsea!

We look so much better without Hazard in the team.

 

I've liked the way we have played today we are finally showing some fight.

 

Just need abit more up top

Zouma has been a beast so far. Probably has won EVERY aerial duel in this game. if only he could improve his on the ball game..probably should shut him down with some technical coach or something like this. at the moment he is looking like a 3rd league player on the ball and cant barely pass it upfront.

Besides this, pretty solid 1st half. Should go for the 2nd one though
