Obviously I am delighted that hazard plays in blue and very pleased with the season he has had, but he still needs to do more to convince me that we have a world great on our hands. This is the first season he hasn't disappeared a bit in the big games, let us hope this trend continues and next season he can make more of an impact in europe


Fan Favourite
I preferred Hazard at Lille, he's become too disciplined I think at a club like Arsenal where the result isn't as valuable he'd be a larger offensive threat

Hazard is a very good dribbler but not efficient.
What? He might not be that flashy, but you don't have to be to get past players. I'd say he is very efficient at dribbling in the box. He's quite short and I think the low center of gravity thing helps him as well, a lot. Playing in the EPL has toughened him up as well in my opinion, his second season is definitely showing it.

Also also gotta agree with Shifty, he reminds me of Ribéry as well instead of Robben. The way he moves with the ball, not really a long shot taker, a good passer etc.

Chelsea win the league with Terry, Cahill, Zouma, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, Filipe Luis, Mikel and Matic on the field after a dubious penalty call that led to a Hazard missed penalty, only for him to then head it in on the rebound.

I can't think of a more appropriate ending.

That's understandable, Lee, I can see where you're coming from. We can't change the past, but just know that you will not get any more issues from this little corner of the internet. Even if we can never make it right, we are still deeply apologetic about the past.

I'm sure. Forgive me for sounding ungrateful Nady but I've endured years of abuse from this forum and an apology is nice and I'm grateful for that but it will take quite some time for me to forgive any apology issued here, but appreciated nonetheless.

Come on, most of us were kids making fun of another kid back then. We are all grown ups now. The past is the past.


Club Supporter
London is blue! Chelsea are PL champions
As a fan, I’m going to try and describe this. It is content. It is happy. It is relief. It is awesome. It is pride. It is admiration. It is…..Chelsea FC. More

I have a question that I'd like to ask but already know the answer to.

If Roman Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour hadn't have bought Chelsea and Manchester City and if they were both ownerless, would they have won their Premier League championships? No.

If Manchester United weren't owned by the Glazers, would they have won more Premier League championships? Probably.

So? Are you still clinging to a lurid romantic view that having had your finances secure for a longer time makes your achievements somehow more valid?
