  1. Eden Hazard

    1 Euhm... about a week ago where he scored the winning goal against Bournemouth and created 7 chances (the most chances a player has created this season in the PL btw) 2 nope

    It's not about shifting blame. It's just that when you start comparing our squad to other top teams you notice that those teams have several game changers. Here we have 1, Hazard. Also if you look at City, Madrid, PSG, they all have several players that handle the build up and creative side of things. Here we only have Fabregas, Hazard. Also when you look at the top teams there's a genuine abillity across the team to hold the ball and pass it around. Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi all three of them could stand around doing absolutely nothing and their teams would still be pinging the ball around effortlessly It's actually pretty weird why "scottish_mike" is complaining about Hazard not tearing the Roma defence when we were struggling to string along 3 passes. Instead of wondering why Hazard doesn't save our ass on a consistent base we should be wondering why we need Hazard to save us all the f**king time.

    Messi fair enough although as insanely good as he is he also has poor games. Ronaldo is well past his best and nowadays is just a goal poacher relying on the top quality players he's surrounded with at Madrid to get him chances. Bale and consistency . Really ? He's been injured half the time and he's been poor for the majority of the last 2 seasons and look this season injured again. Neymar is a massively wasteful player. The amount of times he loses the ball is pretty crazy. He needs several good opportunities. Eden unfortunately doesn't have that luxury here.
  4. Why not a 3-4-3 with Fabregas-Bakayoko midfield ? 1 defensive player is more then enough against Crystal Palace, imo. I'd only play a 3-5-2 if there's a genuine need to battle for control in the midfield. Hazard-Michy-Pedro up front.

    Any apology would sound hollow. You've made your bed Costa, now lie in it. Let him rot.

    Him and Bakayoko apparently played in a friendly today. 8-0 victory. Hazard scored, Musonda twice. Maybe already on the bench on sunday ?

    I think it is easier to play in 1 of the 2 topteams of La Liga then in 1 of the top teams from the PL. The physicality in the PL is a big part of that. Smaller teams profit from that as referees will blow their whistle a lot quicker in La Liga then the PL. There's also a bigger difference between the top teams and the smaller teams in La Liga and the PL. That has a lot to do with the tv money not being divided equally on La Liga. There's also more of an emphasis on playing out from the back and playing possession football in La Liga. Even smaller teams. That leads to more space and openings. So to summarise in La Liga, when you play for Real or Barca, you're playing with better players against worse opposition with more space and more protection from the ref. On Sanchez, i think his role is different for Arsenal then it was for Barca. At Barca his job was to keep things wide and stretch the oppo. At Arsenal he's allowed to roam more in the central areas.

    I think Hazard can sometimes be a bit too calculated when deciding what to do with the ball. I do sometimes wish he would try and force the issue a bit more. Try things that might not work 9 or 8 out of 10 times.

    At 12:20 it shows a number of clips from the game where they highlighted just how much space there was in the central areas because Gueye was man marking Hazard.

    It's not about being found out. Man marking is essentially a trade off. You limit the influence of 1 player but weaken the overall defensive solidity of your team (as you lose 1 player who's not concerned with anything else but the player he's supposed to mark). Problem with having Hazard run into our own half is that it plays into the other teams hands. The point of man marking Hazard is to limit his influence. Having him move further away from goal would only help the opposition. Problem with having Hazard out on the wing is that it's a more isolated position. It's also easier to defend out wide as the sideline acts as another defender. If Hazard is wide then the only place he can go with the ball is to the inside. Regardless of what Hazard does when the opposition man mark him his influence on the game is always going to be less then what it could be. The solution is for the rest of our players to take advantage of the extra space that they are given. Only thing Hazard can do is keep making runs and make the moments he's able to get away from his man marker count.
  15. Kante is pfa player of the year

    Agreed. You can make strong cases for both Hazard and Kante winning POTY. Both have been vital to us.
