Good one Hazard- demanding the club signs new good players before he (Hazard) can put pen to paper on a long term deal. I wish he gets his way.

Agree3 Disagree1

Hazard is a good player no doubt, but once again we see players having the power at our club.

Sure we'd miss Hazard but if he really doesn't want to be here we should just cash in on him.

We have too many players not really 100% committed to our team (clearly that's just my opinion) . Courtois and Hazard both included.

Ummm - not a great endorsement of his present team-mates! I wonder how that will play in the dressing room.

Bobby23, affluence naturally breeds influence. If someone is rich in something- it naturally gives you influence and it's no different in football- hence player power is inevitable- when the player in question is very talented. The real question is, 'ARE THE DEMANDS OF THE PLAYER (EXERCISING THE POWER) REASONABLE OR UNREASONABLE? '

If bringing in more players like Hazard's demanding would help us win more trophies- fine by me. Hazard's loyalty isn't in doubt, I think he's backing it up with ambition by demanding for more better players (I admire his ambition) .

If the club is successful winning trophies by his demands, I bet everyone will be happy.

Miss Darren Wood, would you think he's wrong?

16 May 2018 16:06:21
Good point Miss Darren Wood.

obinna123: You are correct, we start winning regularly again and everyone will forget everything. However, your affluence breeds influence is correct BUT the club is way bigger in both and to have a player that was mentioned when there was Mourinho discontent and also Conte should be dealt with. I know you think very highly of Hazard but his good "on his day" but sadly for a player to be great he has to have more than the "odd great day". Comments like his reflect on all the players around him and I am sure there will be many that would like to see the back of him. If we got £100m for him I would take it. This is the best league for his talents as I do not think he will do well in Spain; look at his International record against some poor teams and it has been very ordinary.

C1955, your point is great and similar to Miss Darren Wood's.

Though I guess I see opportunity cost; something has to be forgone to get something. Big players do what Hazard's doing most times to win more but if the club can't live with it (big players demanding for better players) - then sell him (Hazard) . But I think BIG PLAYER= BETTER FOOTBALL= MORE TROPHIES/ SUCCESS= BIGGER BRAND= MORE MONEY FOR THE CLUB (and everyone's smiling) .

Besides Hazard's character is impeccable as a human being (similar to Messi) . If he's complaining, I think its for a good reason.

I feel if you will take £100m for Eden Hazard in today's market; then maybe you aren't seeing his ability- When a free transfer Pogba cost above £89m; Coutinho (below £10m from InterMilan to Liverpool) and Dembele (just below £15m from Rennes to B. Dortmund) all cost above £100m. Maybe truly a Prophet isn't regarded in his own town.

Besides Hazard demanding for new better players, haven't we all seen this season that we need reinforcements.

16 May 2018 19:15:47
obinna123: You are starting to sound like an accountant! I agree we DO need reinforcements, carefully thought out ones NOT position fillers.

16 May 2018 21:25:14
Haha. No, I am no accountant. When the transfer window actively opens we will see the real Chelsea accountants (from their comments) .

I’m not confident about our club going forward without the manager and director of football positions being resolved asap.
