Hazard and Mata behind any striker should be good to watch for Chelsea next season. Funny he went there after plenty of city fans being exceptionally confident of getting him a while back.
It would really hurt me if United didn't get Kagawa.
Agree on all of that mate. Getting Kagawa be great for us I said few weeks ago if land him for anywhere between 12-15M pounds it be a bargain & one SAF best bits of business he will give us more options in attacking sense as so often in attack look out idea through middle so give ball to wide men in order to produce the goods with Kawaga can finally have a player who can create stuff in center. Also we are only club interested in him, so that puts bed any rumors concerning Arsenal.
Also Hulk on Chelsea radar & according to Telegraph 90% done & didn’t Sao Paulo president come & say that Chelsea had bid 32M for Lucas? If Chelsea can wrap up those 2 deals combined with buying a RB (Van der Weil of Ajax maybe?). Now that Chelsea squad for 12/13 is scary good. Feel kinda bad for Mata if what Hazard saying about wanting play through middle is true then mean Mata get shifted out wide though he still good player there his more effective off CF that said a front 4 of Mata Hazard Marin & Torres is still impressive.
As I said at the time on Hazard if we got him great but if he joined Chelsea or Man City then no hard feelings, both those 2 clubs challenge for cups each season, have CL & big money on offer & between Manchester & London, alot people will want London imo more so if got a young family like Hazard has. My only sour feeling is the way its all been handled think been shambles from player very unprofessional. Though I have the weirdest feeling announcing where your going on Twitter will become common theme now in next few years for players (I hope not) only good things is this transfer over with early. Good luck to him at Chelsea, hope he delivers in PL, his got all tools needed to become a very good player over next few years, so were see what he does for Chelsea for next few seasons.
Liverpool appointing Rodgers is interesting choice, He will get Liverpool playing better in attacking sense(after some time), Liverpool problem was not scoring enough goals in PL last season & being 1 dimensional in attack for long periods of season. Away from home it was fine cos focused on counter attacking, but at home there suffered by doing this as Teams sat back & never bothered by Liverpool attacks all that much. Rodgers Swansea keep ball & played short passing with aim of finding gaps to thread balls through other teams defense if couldn’t find it just keep ball & keep waiting to see the gap appear, if Rodgers can recreate that formula at Liverpool then it would be a great start. I look forward to seeing what he can deliver at Liverpool, might want start with getting RW though & CM who can play balls around a bit in attacking sense. But I honestly don’t believe Liverpool unless serious major investment is made on top players how they can finish in top 4 next year (Which the owners wanted them to do last summer) So are Liverpool owners going be looking at 3 year plan here & say to Rodgers what you do in first season isn’t so important just get us challenging high up in PL but progress beyond 8th finish hopefully top 6 & improve on that in your 2nd season or will they give Rodgers the same line they gave Kenny Daglish & tell him Liverpool need finish in top 4 come May.
I also feel for Swansea though, losing Rodgers is such kick in teeth. I hope whoever takes over from him keeps the same passing idea/style that Rodgers used or something similar as I really enjoyed watching them last season; finishing 11th for club is great achievement.
