Nah on Fabregas, most neutral fans like him a lot, he's a great PL player

Super update, I can't believe that banner and that the captain would be so respectful towards Mr Peters.

If this is true (and I guess it is) then the Torres to Roma deal looks really unlikely

Me too. I don't think this rumour has legs, he doesn't look like the kind of player we've been interested in recently

Oscar's probably the best tactical no. 10 in the world, Willian would have to really step up his game to approach Oscar's level imo.

I doubt that Fabregas will be given quite so much space in the coming months but at the moment teams won't know whether to focus on him, Hazard or Costa and that's a great advantage

Meh, I grew up watching them score goals at a similar technical level

2) it wasn't in the top corner, if you see the angle behind the shot it swerved insanely in mid-flight back towards him
Commented on Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas inspire Blues to 3-1 win against Burnley on Aug 19 2014, 12:19p
From what I understand, having never truly experienced the feeling, not all players have this capacity just as some people are better hunters than others
Commented on Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas inspire Blues to 3-1 win against Burnley on Aug 19 2014, 12:14p
I don't think this is an issue that can be put to bed after playing one game, a game against Burnley

The Drogba goal in the FA Cup against United had a similar assist from Frank too

I loved his explanation too, that he considered shooting but thought that Schurrle probably had a better chance than he did

Same, Courtois has looked nervous since he joined

I'd love this to be the way we're going to play every game: that technique, intensity and intelligence (Schurrle's run for the second goal had me drooling) is what I fell in love within the days of Zola and Vialli
Commented on Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas inspire Blues to 3-1 win against Burnley on Aug 19 2014, 8:41a
He's done it quietly but Oscar's gone from taking Drogba's number straight after he left to Lampard's number.

Yes, Graham's pointed out several times that we won a lot of those games due to Luiz and Matic being physically dominant in midfield

Yes, stupid to sell their best striker to a rival too

Time will tell but in the context of Squirtle, Agger and Toure I think it's different to not say he's a great buy

Commented on Don't panic, Didier Drogba probably isn't out for six months on Aug 11 2014, 11:54a
His positioning isn't as good as Cole's, he doesn't get tight to his marker quick enough and so the opposition have more space to attack.
