Hazard: The Star which is shining now

If you ask any fan which player has improved this season most, they will say Hazard. He has just taken his game to different level in last few weeks. It is amazing how thing have just turned around for him in just matter of weeks. It was in November when he was dropped from the team for being late in training and also there were reports that coach is not happy with his discipline in training. The amount of talent he has, he should much better than what he was doing in start of season. And if any coach ever looks from a response from a player, then take a note of Hazard, he has been nothing short of phenomenal in last few weeks, he is the difference between draw and win in Chelsea fc matches.

If you see his game last year and this year there is one major difference is about his reading of game, I don’t it is because of Mourino or he has just become that good, there is no doubt that his defensive side of game has been a plus sign for team, he and Oscar pushes the team to their half and also track back if it required. Going forward he has been nothing short of phenomenal in last few weeks, he has terrorized defense with his direct running, I think last few week referee has not given him at least 2 or 3 penalty, hazard is not a driver but he commit people with his pace and skill that they often don’t able to make a last minute adjustment to his play. He has already scored around 8 or 7 goals, but more important 4 goals in December only. He has stepped his game at right time for team, and with Jose I am sure he will become better.

If hazard has still some weakness then not shooting more some promising position, he did that thing against Liverpool when he leveled Chelsea fc back in the game, but often he and Oscar not shoot they just pass one extra and the movement is gone. Once he starts to score more, then he will be more deadly. I think he is worthy replacement of Ronaldo and Bale in the premier league. He can be the next poster boy of BPL, I think next season we will see a different Hazard, but how Chelsea fc keep this team intact will be vital to his performance. He is still developing and that is frightening for the opposition.

Imagine Hazard running at pace to the defense and there is Oscar and other forward player as well, they can be as deadly as anyone in the world when they attack like this, they have shown that against Liverpool. And yes, they outplayed and outsmarted to them.

P.S. : Hazard face make him so innocent looking boy, but he can be deadly with boll in his foot. J

Year review of Chelsea fc

Again a dramatic year end of Chelsea fc, as a fan I have stopped being surprised by this club. This is my club, but they can make any scene a drama and they do come out in the end good out of it, like in movies. This year was again the same, when they entered the year with Rafa in charge it was like club fan vs club management, but in the end he delivered the club what he was asked to do. A trophy and top 4 finish in league. This can do the maddest thing in world but yet in the end it goes well.

Players like Terry, Lampard and Cole realized that they are no longer starter in the club; they can be shown the door by the club, yet contract was offered to cole and lampard but I am still not convinced club will have them more than this year. I think cole will leave, and lamps and terry will stay. Chelsea fc new deal of Kit with Addidas made news, it is significant because now people know how big Chelsea fc has become. I think they will be first club to crack the US market because they always visit there in the season start of end of it. They are moving in right direction in term of finance and also in term of vision of club, for the first time we made profit as well that was significant.

The biggest drama was arrival of Jose Mourinho, well if any club can do that then only Chelsea fc in the mind. He comes back to club he love, a club who loves him and fans adore him. He is like second god to most Chelsea fc fan, because the passion and desire he shows on the pitch to win the game is matched by no one else. He is still shaping his team and I think it will take time to get again the mourinho special team, this term he has a great quality squad, but balance is still missing. How he will deal with it is very important.

In term of player, there is not much change in the team, they have only bought willian and eto, otherwise rest team is same, if you see the amount of player are out on loan, then you realize how much talent Chelsea fc has on his books. They might not be best team now, but in future they can be better team without any investment. This team can become more powerful and more amazing with just little addition. I think we will lose some loan starts, but profile will be there in each of them.

Lastly last year we lost too many big games at time, but with jose back in charge we are winning again those big matches, just we have to now not lose those small matches to make sure we stay in the hunt.  Last 2 season we were out of race by this time, but now with jose back we know it will be close, we might not be the championship material, but he will make sure we take the fight to the last round. I think jose will make the difference in the title race, because he know it is important to win, but also very important to not let other win in the league which he did at Man utd and Arsnel.
