    I would understand your worry about a players speed after this type of injury, but CHO is far too young to have that effect him currently. Absolutely no chance in that to effect him because he is still growing

    You're not going to watch your team in a European Final because we might lose?
    Shocking mentality.

    TheChelsRVA got a reaction from mojo in Eden Hazard   
    Same.  My favorite ever Chelsea player.  His attitude and skill are going to be missed. I was hard on him during the jose last season fiasco.  But he is on another level skill wise and we struggle to do ANYTHING productive in the final third when he is not on the pitch.  
    Ultimately I think the move to real is bad in the long term.  English football is on the rise - all the best coaches, majority of the best players, etc.  Real fans will whistle him when he doesn't score hat tricks every game.  
    I wish him the best, I truly do.  I got an autographed top from him and It's framed in my bedroom.  He IS a Chelsea legend.  Good luck Eden, even if it breaks my heart to see you in Madrid.  Do us one last favor and rip arsenal a new one

    TheChelsRVA got a reaction from wallosh in Jorginho is a Blue   
    Jorginho's limitations have been evident all year once teams started man marking.  We need a new way of playing.  Our fans shouldn't be booing people off the pitch unless they literally give up and stop fighting.  Jorginho tries, he's just incredibly limited.

    Three players in our squad consistently show the heart and desire I would expect from a championship caliber team: Kante, Azpi, Rudiger.  Everyone else has no heart.

    TheChelsRVA got a reaction from Dean in Jorginho is a Blue   
    Jorginho is so limited it's baffling the fee we paid for him.  As said above he lacks proficiency in any particular skillset, other than arguably understanding how Sarri wants to implement his football.  He touches the ball a bunch but can't dribble.  All his passes are sideways or backward.  He cannot properly defend when teams counter as he lacks real physicality and pace.  I would really like to see kovacic in this role.  His defensive ability alone would really help.

    You won't get an argument from me over Sarri's tactics. But I don't think Jorginho is looking anything other than a very, very average footballer. Even his passing is nothing special IMO. And he has no natural attributes that make him stand out. No pace, no power and strength, no aerial ability, no vision and creativity. Nothing. Nada.

    I would also play him in Jorginhos spot.  Jorginho has shown time and again this season his lack of defensive football and work rate.  He just sprays the ball from side to side and backwards.  I get it, he recycles possession and gets a lot of touches, but he can easily be marked and when put under loads of pressure he folds.  Kovacic Barkley and Kante sounds more dangerous to me.

    No, don't you know, Hazard has got no "end product", according to some footballing genius in here a little while ago, and should be sold as soon as we can.
    Seriously, yes Hazard and Giroud do play well together, but Giroud doesn't have what we need three times a week.
    But actually, my post was about that sad poster who only ever turns up here when we have a baddish patch and then whines and moans.  We never see him/her posting when we are doing well, not do we ever see him/her posting anything positive.

    But tbf, don't you think Hazard links up better with Giroud?  I do.  The problem is Giroud cannot play 90 minutes and isn't going to ever score enough goals for the team.  He is a true target man though with skill, he can flick and lay off with ease unlike Morata.

    TheChelsRVA got a reaction from yorkleyblue in Willian   
    Agree he had that terrible giveaway and if not for a brilliant save from Kepa would have equalized.  But I guess my point is no matter what way you look at it, Moses came on and was worse.  Willian got us out of tricky situations plenty (especially first half) and was very creative.  As far as a creative outlet for us he's our second best player on the ball and is needed in close games and tight spaces.  Moses comes on and tries to take on players but stumbles over his own two feet/backheels it to no one.  
    If Willian was tired, that is another thing.  I agree regarding Pedro.  I think Pedro suits the playstyle much better and sharing the position between the two is very important to our success going forward.

    TheChelsRVA got a reaction from just in David Luiz back at Chelsea   
    I too have a soft spot for David Luiz...and like the poster above it's mostly down to nostalgia.  But his weaknesses are going to cost us points this year if he doesn't sort them out.  We have gotten lucky so far...we should have dropped points against Newcastle from his laziness on the header equalizer.  Bournemouth had 2 very good chances and Arsenal scored a couple cutbacks in part (not wholly) because of Luiz' laziness defensively.  Against bigger teams these will result in dropped points and I'm just not sure I can justify it.  
    So far it's easy to cancel it out, but the first huge mistake against a better team that capitalizes on it and I think Sarri will be forced to make a change.

    Honestly what’s the point of these international friendlies, especially after a WC. Basically no break for certain players and then are forced to travel and play meaningless games with a new team, completely rushing injury and breaking chemistry at the club level. It’s so stupid
