Few of you seem a bit too overjoyed about the thought of Mikel leaving, crazy. You're saying it like he's a terrible player :banghead: He's a decent player IMO and if he does leave I wish him all the best.

I'll wish him all the best, but I'll be happy we've moved on from him. Some of his performances last season were atrocious and the disdain with which he treated the Europa League (before the Kazan leg, not the final where he couldn't wait to get his hands on the trophy) was pretty much the final straw.

I thought maybe Mourinho could help reinvigorate him, but I honestly don't think we'll miss him with Lamps, Rami, Romeu, Ake, Chalobah and Loftus-Cheek here for the present and the future and people like De Rossi being mooted for him.

But apparently there's a list of some players who can have gifs posted for them and some who can't - fuck know's what Marin did to be on that list apart from not being good enough. Can't blame the kid for trying though.

I'm not crying 

What does he do? attacking wise he offers next to nothing, defensively he's lazy, hardly ever tracks his man, rarely wins back the ball... when he does it takes him 30 seconds to actually release the

lol @ people saying he was instrumental in our CL run

we got dominated for most parts of each game we played

it's not hard to look good as a DM when you're parking the bus

the job of a DM is partly to distribute the game from midfield so you are not resorted to parking the bus

I wouldn't mind him moving either, but I aren't jumping with joy over it. Every player has a few bad games a season, to me he's just a quiet player (till he tackles aggressively) who I don't really notice, a good thing? I aren't sure, but somebody has to start the ball from midfield either it be a simplistic pass or a switch from one side to the other. I can't see us using Romeu either, i'd rather see Chalbs given ago, Ake or even Cheek for the lower games of the season.

You won't see me posting gifs about any player, but i can understand it for some - Bosingwa, Benayoun, Kalou don't belong at a club like Chelsea, and their donkey play is so apparent for all to see.

Anyway, Mikel stepped up when Essien was injured under Carlo and we won the PL. He was also instrumental under RDM and was probably our best player in the CL final - that is enough good imo. He's very inconsistent that's for sure, but generally he does a good enough job - but unfortunately for him, fans have come to expect much more from that position having watched Maka and Essien in his prime.

Bosingwa was instrumental in stopping Messi, not once, but twice!

Kalou gave us a vital goal against Benfica in that away game from last season CL.

And still people celebrate their departure.

So I don't see much difference between what you just said for Mikel and other past players.

If people want to celebrate, let them. Just as long as they are not abusing a player...and when I mean abusing, I mean like racist slur like with Benayoun.

Yeah fair enough. I just don't think Mikel was as bad for Chelsea - during his entire time here - as some of those other players to deserve that.

Today's rumour is that Gala are willing to pay £20m+ for him.

Mikel doesn't want to leave and we're not actively pushing to sell him, but agents are doing everything they can to make a deal go through.

£20 for Mikel? Will that come in two instalments of a tenner now and a tenner when he scores his first goal?

Might have a nap after the press conference because for a moment there I thought you said £20 million. :lol2:

Come next season, this place will not be a very happy place. Mourinho will reduce Mikel to a bench role and there will be a lot of heartbreaks here and also "delicious irony".

Mourinho does not accept bad attitude from his players and besides being a limited footballer, that poor attitude is another of Mikel's shortcomings. Can't wait for next season to start.

If Chelsea are not interested in selling Mikel for 20m, does that mean Mourinho and the rest actually rate him?! Who would have thought that :rolleyes:

Where have you heard we aren't interested? The reports from Nigeria seem to indicate he is unwilling to leave, not that we aren't willing to sell.

He seems intent on pissing off as many Chelsea supporters as possible if that's true.

I don't hate the guy but by god if we can 20M for him then I will pay his first weeks wages.

£20 million makes me think this is a joke, and a particularly cruel one at that. Is that really his market value? That would be a great amount of money for a player who was barely a bench player towards the end of last season and would be a show of faith to some of the younger guys who will be pushing him for a spot next season.

20Million is a hell of a lot for a player as limited as Mikel, and again, i hope people don't think I hate him with that comment but I have thought this for a very long time. We need to look long and hard at this area of the field this summer, it's letting us down time and time again, get De Rossi or somebody of that ilk and bingo, things are starting to look rosy again.

Mikel >>>>>>>>>>> Chalobah

Always has and always will. Deal with it.

That "limited player" was first choice under every single manager since he was signed apart from of course the two with the worst winning percentages at the club,

The complete lack of respect for easily our best outfield player in Munich is sickening.
