Why are you telling me this like i don't know Hans lol?

I'm not even saying De Bruyne isn't talented that would be ridiculous, i'm just saying Hazard has a lot of skills that De Bruyne doesn't but as of yet he hasn't figured how to hone those skills into being a consistent and effective footballer.

That's it lol, i even said De Bruyne is better lol and have been for two years.

And considering Pogba's price tag, he'll ultimately be judged on his statistics. So anyone giving excuses like ' he's a deep midfielder' or 'he's a b2b midfielder' can go *bleep* themselves tbh.

Smh. Pogba's form to end last season was insane.

He can get goals & assists every week. Just needs the freedom to do so. He's not going to be productive holder for Rooney & Griezmann.

That's just ridiculous. Because of Pogba's price tag, he should be judged on statistics? Despite where he plays and how he plays? If Barca sold prime Xavi for 100m would he have been judged by stats too then? Fabregas always picked up more goals and assists than him so would you take Fabregas over Xavi then?

Very Happy I said some time ago in the overrated players thread that I thought Pogba is overrated, seems to be truth coming out now considering the huge price tag now.

Good to see everyone realizing how good KDB is nowadays. As for comparison with Hazard, KDB will always be more all round player and Hazard will likely to continue being the winger type, just different players. A bit like Zidane vs Ribery.

Hazard has been playing under Mou and Conte. If he played under Pep there would be threads saying he could be a Ballon D'Or candidate. I mean he's making that sissy runner Sterling looking like a high IQ wad of man talent instead of a flamboyant over rated player like he did under Pellegrini.

Remember when people were saying Hazard was better than Neymar? Was that Gil? I can't remember who but that debate literally lasted one good season lol

Anyways, back on topic. The knee jerk on GL is ridiculous. I remember when KDB first arrived at City people were calling him a over rated player, and now everyones like yeah the guys talented as hell! I said it many times, he just had to settle, and he now has the perfect coach to get the best out of him. Same thing I say about Pogba now, he just arrived at his new team, and his current set up around him isn't designed to get the best out of him so there will be some growing pains but he WILL come around. He's got a fantastic tool set to work with, and he will come good just like KDB did. Hazard, for as much as I like to crap on him because someone compared him to Neymar, I also think he's a damn fine player.

de bruyne was already far superior in 14/15. Like not even close.
Just at that time the thought of De Boss being the better between the two seemed so foreign still, with all the hype arounf Hazard, with performance in Bundesliga not acknowledged either, that it fell under the radar.

But actually, not even close. Hazard's performances have been developing parallel to Götze's. At that rate they'll finish their career outside of the top 5 leagues.


Just seen this gem. Hans were you drunk when you wrote it? Hazard had a whoscored rating of 7.96 in the league that season and de Bruyne only had 7.95. Get a grip ffs.

Judging players by their whatever's rating Laughing. What is this, Football Manager? De Bruyne was rock solid for Wolfsburg (even for frakking Werder Bremen) and has consistently had more impact than whatever Hazard has done these past few years.

Tbh I hope you guys are joking because otherwise you are just clueless.
Obviously I don't care about the rating but Hazard was player of the season in 14-15 and won Chelsea the league. He was great that season.

He was great that season, yes. But overall De Bruyne has had more impact.

I'm not passing my judgment on a player by just one season.

Sterling and Sane should be the wingers eventually. Nolito is like a jittery Pedro and ruined so many attacking moves, De Bruyne isn't a winger.


Interested to know, do you still feel the same now with KdB?

He was quite meh before the Man Utd game tbh.

If he wasn't then definitely, he's definitely comfortable in that system now and i expect him to go from strength to strength.

Jibers wasn't wrong at the time btw, he was pretty much just getting the ball and side passing.

He looked really uncomfortable, either Pep changed something or De Bruyne adapted because he obviously he looks fantastic now.

He was producing goals/assists despite being meh before the United game.

Aguero is probably the best player so far and then KDB.

Oh I know. I was just asking as to see what he thinks of him now and if he still thinks he'll be on the bench or not.

How much is he actually worth now?

Because he's on a different planet to the rest of this league, a pleasure to watch live and worth the price of the ticket on his own.

http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/10583414/kevin-de-bruynes-form-an-embarrassment-for-jose-mourinho-and-chelsea-says-sunday-supplement-panel

Pretty funny, although a bit harsh on Mourinho (and I can't even believe I'm saying that).

If I'm Mou a few years ago, and I look at Hazard and KDB, I would have thought it perfectly understandable to sacrifice the latter in order to fund Matic and fill in a different midfield role. Hazard, when he's great, is truly great. And Matic had a season or so where he was phenomenal at Chelsea.

But in hindsight it does look like KDB has become the more consistent attacking midfielder from Belgium, and Chelsea shipping him off has come back to bite them. Pep has sung KDB's praises recently - http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11679/10583036/kevin-de-bruyne-just-behind-lionel-messi-says-manchester-city-manager-pep-guardiola

Over and over, the OP argument has been damaged and disproven. De Bruyne's been a really solid buy in this ludicrous contemporary transfer market.
