I hope folks on here have seen Conte's dig at Manchester clubs on spending. It's very ironic given that its coming from a Chelsea manager. Anyway, we all know Mou might respond...and when he does, Let's not get petty but remember who started it. I feel it was uncalled for by conte to go that route.

Let's try to be objective here folks
Lol yeah we were 3rd highest spenders so we are the wrong example for conte to use for his statement
Link please...I was hoping Conte would give it back to the whining specialist. Well done!

Rednickle123 - FYI. http://www.totalsportek.com/money/premier-league-clubs-transfers-net-spend-last-5-years/

If a Legendary BUS Parking manager can take dig at others calling them defensive when they have scored 20+ goals more than his team and currently fighting for title. Conte has every rights to talk about spending because the whining specialist will go out and spend 200m again next window and fail to win PL. Mark my words!!
+2
Bazinga___For someone who gets really upset whenever Mou talks about Chelsea, I must say that I'm surprised at your response when it's Conte this time round.
We've become this petty huh?

With Mou record,your wish of wanting to see him fail will be tough thou. That I know
It's high time he gave some back and his comments can be factually verified unlike the twice-sacked individual's far fetched lies.
+2
Gapha since your dint read my post let me post it again.

If a Legendary BUS Parking manager has balls to take dig at others calling them defensive when they have scored 20+ goals more than his team and currently fighting for title. Conte has every rights to talk about spending.

Your ok for Jose to provoke others taking dig after dig...but others should take them and stay quite? Interesting that you guys never posted about any of the Jose's whining earlier this year and now post it when Conte did it once ? what an irony!

If he win's PL next season i will change my DP to Jose for ever and quit footy.
haha ok Baz.
Didnt watch the match cuz i was im jungle lol but how was

1. Batshuayi

2. Ake

3. Costa after coming on

4. Courtois and Alonso after injury
Batshuayi, played pretty much with no service for 60 minutes, he had 2-3 good holdup play moments though and one led to Willian freekick goal.

Ake, best Chelsea player after Luiz.

Costa, he didn't do much and missed a point blank header for 5-2.

Courtois, conceded 2 good goals, wasn't forced to make any saves.

Alonso, meh.
I thought Batshuayi did well to be honest. His movement was better than Costa's for the last few games.
Fabregas said team-mate Hazard could reach the level of Lionel Messi if he was "selfish" and showed greater "killer instinct".

But Conte said: "In my team, I don't want selfish players. I prefer to lose a game than to have a selfish player.

"For me, it's sad to listen to this."

"The first target for every great champion is to play for the team and to put your talent into the team," he said. "The best players in the world don't exist without a team.

"I will never understand this. Never, never. I don't want this and I can't accept this.

"I don't want my club to buy me a selfish player one day. Never. No."
+2
I'm going to have to agree with Fabregas on this one. I'm not sure that Conte understands what he was trying to say. Not that Hazard should have more selfish game play overall, but once you're in the box to have that killer instinct to score the goal and not try to give the responsibility up to someone else
+4
Cesc is right. Hazard still has random games where he takes 0 shots, which is unacceptable for a player who can easily beat 1-2 players and create space for himself.
+3
Messi is far too much but he has killer instinct then he would probably win ballon d'or.
Lost in translation ?
I think conte took Cesc out of context.
Because in Conte's mind Hazard taking shots is probably not 'selfish' but 'correct'; 'expected' because obviously

And he thought 'selfish' = Ronaldo esque hogging FPL points :P
+1
I do think he has stepped up that instinct a bit this season and improved because of it, still a little ways to go there.
Alright, let's all change our default pictures to JT for the remainder of the season.

I'm going to post several options, the one that has the most likes by the end of tomorrow's game will be the winner. Vote for the picture you want us all to use.

Ok so a very important classico game for Real Madrid and an in form Isco cant even play ahead of out of form Bale. Even when Bale is taken off, isco still doesnt get a chance to play this vital game despite being in a great form. Is he really better than Hazard like SIF claims? If he is why do Real Madrid want Hazard for a massive price when they cant afford to play a better player than him? And why would not Chelsea easily accept to give Hazard to Real for a better player + cash?
+1
No way in hell is he better than Hazard. Isco us f*****g amazing though buy not Hazards level. Just because he played well against the last team in the league, doesn't mean he's better or even level with Eden.
+9
Hazard will own most teams in la liga single handedly

Add Kroos, Modric, Marcelo etc to the mix and it will be proper damage
+1
Isco was and still is inconsistent, couple of good games doesn't change that reality.
+1
I mean hazard is inconsistent too, just look at all of last season.

Hey it's just my opinion, who says I have to be right? From what I see, I think Isco matches or surpasses hazard's best qualities.

Idk why Zidane chose James, maybe he's fresher, maybe because he's more of a forward (Isco is used as a CM not winger).

Like I said, the main difference between the two is hazard has better acceleration and is more suited for the forward role while isco is more of a midfielder and used in CM. They don't exactly overlap in positional use, at least in Zidane's system.
SIF, im sorry but you cant be serious " look at last season"

Hazard has had ONE bad season in the last, what, 7 seasons?

All other seasons he has been scoring, assisting, winning awards and deciding games on his own. He is objectively a better player, wich does not make Isco a bad player.

Come on.
+5
There is a reason you can only think of last season. Inconsistency is not in Hazard's books.to be inconsistent, he would have had to turn up and then go down..

also, there is a reason you're the only one who thinks Isco is better than Hazard.

IMO, Hazard is better than Bale, James and Isco..Neymar is better than them all
+1
Why the comparison though? Hazard is a natural winger and Isco is natural CAM who can operate very well as a CM/playmaker. I am quite surprised by all the argument about who is better.

It is like saying, Moses is better than Kante
+2
Only think of last season is false, hazard has been inconsistent most of his time at chelsea. he'll have a few outstanding games and then disappear for a stretch. You can't tell me hazard's always consistent?

tomi the comparison is because isco has one year on contract and real are considering signing hazard.

unless ronaldo's moving up to #9 on a permanent basis, where will hazard play? is he going to bench bale? I think they'll move hazard to midfield, essentially asking him to play an advanced midfield role, but not a wide role, so he'll be occuping similar spaces as isco and possibly asked to do the same things. remember kroos wasnt so defensive at bayern, bale was not locked into the right wing at spurs, etc. I dont think hazard will be given his normal position either, he'll be asked to fit into the current set up and probably replace isco since their qualities are so similar.
Hazard is always consistent big game player. You cant tell the same about many stars including Isco who is yet to have his best season. He does not even play regular 50+ game in a season like Hazard with responsibility of being the main man.

Consistently giving big performances against small team and then disappearing in big games does not make them better. Ozil has the same problem.

Hazard and Isco do not have similar quality. I'm not sure what is your base of this assumption. They are both different with different qualities.
+2
.... And Real can go suck an egg, Hazard ain't leaving. No way. Next year we will go far in the CL and home league. Big players will join us, not leave.
i think they are both attacking mids.. thats enough to draw comparisons. hazard is played like a forward in conte's system, isco is played as a midfielder in zidane's system. The only major difference is pace, and maybe defensive contributions. Hazard's acceleration is much better, which is why he is used further up the pitch.

if you can compare hazard to silva or kdb, you can absolutely compare isco to hazard.
And who compared Hazard to Sliva , KDB now?
Um..my point is its been done before, several times. they are all attacking midfielders and have been compared at some point.
I'm sure you would have had different opinion if Hazard was playing for United SIF. Because even Real and Barca fans who follow Isco week in week out do not seem to agree with your view.

If he was really better or as good as Hazard. I'm sure Real would extend his contract wont come after Hazard ..Lets wait and watch
imo this has been Hazard's most consistent season at Chelsea, but it's also the first year he's played a central role for more than 2 games, so it's hard to compare with his previous seasons.

One thing I'll say though is no team should waste money on Eden if they're not going to play him as a #10, this is the position he always wanted to play but couldn't because of Mata/Oscar.
+2
Isco is pretty good. Yeah his inconsistent at times but does the guy start every game? No. So when he does play or comes off the bench after a while, his going to be rusty and his going to try to adjust to the game. I honesty believe if Isco played week in and out, he would be one of the best n10 in the world. During Carlo's final season is where he really shined bright and proved his worth, he was excellent that year.

I mean watch the guy during his Malaga days and tell me his lesser than Hazard. He was showing so much potenial. His mistake was that he went to Madrid to warm the bench and didn't follow Pellegrini to City. Now his 25 years old and if he wants to reach his potential he has to leave them.
Kante deservedly won the PFA player of the year.
This year ballon d'or is pretty much open though. Messi has played superbly and scored tons of goals but barca will likely not win any major title. Ronaldo has not had that many goals this season. Higuain has hardly scored in Champions league. If griezmann can win champions league he might have a good shot. What do you think? Who is lmist likely to win?
Ronaldo will win CL and win Ballon d'or again
and this is exactly why the assessment for Ballon D'or is ridiculous. Why should winning something matter if the trophy is for the 'best player' which means the 'player who has contributed the most to his team' ?
+6
Kante won the PFA players' player of the year! Congrats N'Golo!
+10
Well done N'golo! what a player. I like him as a person, doesnt go around social media posting things or saying bad things about player or club, I'm pretty sure he wouldnt have cared if he had lost it to someone else. His focus is on the game and how he can improve. Humble lad!
well deserved, he is like having 3 extra players on pitch.
+1
Well earned, his been a beast all season. If you took him out of the equation, I think the team would probably have lost more games along the way. Brilliant player.

What a fairy tale for him btw. Went from Ligue 2 with Caen to Ligue 1, signed for Leicester and won the league. Moved to Chelsea to win the league for the second time and won the PFA Player of the Year. What a player.
+1
We haven't won the league yet, Moe66!
+2
he is immaculate in what he does for his team. wins the ball so casually, most times the players dont see him coming. he's tiny but you cant get the ball off him once he's won it. well deserved.
+2
..not as good as Isco though, right Sif 😆?
+3
Messi with a truly iconic goal and celebration
+6
What a match, glad Barca won but feel bad for Marcelo, such a good player worked his socks off.
+1
What a player.
+9
I can only imagine Marcelo and Neymar in Barca...they would probably be just as good as Dani and Messi
+1
Messi is a beast!
