50 Shades of Blue

EdenHazardBlue is the color, football is the game, Little Eden Hazard is scoring again!

Yes Chelsea fans our little wing wizard decided to show up this weekend and put on a dazzling display.

 

Guus on match day sprung a very unwelcome surprise by playing John Obi-mikel at centre back!! Yes the slow, ball dwelling, non ball header John Obi at centre back! It was a big kick in the teeth to the youngsters especially as Hiddink had done quite a few interviews stating that kids will be getting there chance.

Yet he prefers a Centre midfielder to play next to the awful Ivanovic!! Comedy gold from Hiddink.

Chelsea ran out victorious with a thumping 4-1 victory! Goals from Hazard(2) Willian and Pedro led us to victory.

Fabregas put on a footballing masterclass with 3 assists and should have had 4 if Pedro not been so wasteful. Fabregas has now moved into 3rd place for all time assists in the premier league!

Chelsea – Begovic, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic (c), Baba, Mikel, Fabregas, Pedro, Willian, Hazard, Costa.

subs – Amelia, Miazga, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Traore, Pato, Falcao.

 

Eden Hazards performance at the weekend was a welcome return to the team by the injured and out of form Belgian. His brace was his 1st since 2014!! For a player of his calibre that is very surprising and shows he has a very long way to go before he can be mentioned in the same breath as Ronaldo and Messi! He took his goals very well, running the show from the wing, and it was great to see the look on his face when he scored.Nemanja+Matic

Nemanja Matic also made an appearance and played a lot better than he has in previous months. It’s been a huge fall from grace for the Serbian tank and I know most Chelsea fans would love him to return to his dominant best!

Something that came to my mind over the weekend and showed how fickle football is.

Coutinho was nominated for player of the year, Martial nominated for young player of the year, Delli alli nominated for young player of the year and I agree they have had good seasons. The papers have gone crazy for how good they have been with goals and assists!

But here is the pipe bomb! Pedro has been labelled a flop at Chelsea, in his 1st season in the premier ship, playing in an under-performing side, Pedro has been labelled a flop……Pedro ladies and gentleman has more goals and assists as a package than Martial and Coutinho and is only 2 behind Alli! So isn’t it bizarre how we praise some players who we fancy at that time but then slate others without actually looking at the stats!

Personally I feel Pedro could have done better and he has seemed a headless chicken at times, but he has popped up with goals and energy and hopefully next season just be a little better when it comes to the final third.

 

In Other News:

JohnStonesIncoming Manager Antonio Conte has been urged to offer John Terry a new contract. Chelsea are very short on leadership and it is said to be a worry that the love of the club isn’t being fed onto the players which is why so much passion has been missing from our play this season.

Chelsea are said to still be chasing John Stones. Personally I don’t see what the hype is about. Yes he can play ball and make some nice challenges but he is very reckless and can’t smell danger! I don’t see the point in wasting 40 million on him, when we have a talented Aina, Miazga, Clarke-Salter and Christensen! Or are we going to sell them just to want to buy them back for treble the price we sell them?

 

Pit of the week:

Hiddink’s bizarre decision to play Mikel at the back! I think it was a huge kick in the face to the youngsters trying to force their way into the side!

Peak of the week:

Eden Hazard bagging 2 goals and playing with a smile on his face!

 

Next Fixture 2/05/16 Tottenham (H)

 

Until next time……KTBFFH
