  1. Lucas Piazon

    Sent my friend the questions he sent. Also - he is being interviewed live right now for anyone that wants to follow on TwitCam: http://twitcam.com/6swc0 You can ask questions there directly to him!
  2. Lucas Piazon

    Hi guys - Just found out my friend is going to interview Lucas Piazon tomorrow for SambaFoot. Was talking to him about it and we thought it would be cool to get questions from people here. So - if you have any questions you'd like to ask Piazon, post here or DM me!
  3. Official: Juan Mata Leaves For Man United

    Very excited for this signing. SO excited in fact that I wrote a blog post about "Top 5 Reasons Juan Mata is a Perfect Fit for Chelsea". Instead of re-iterating what I said there, here is a link: http://www.theelastico.com/?p=1093 Would love to hear people's thoughts.
  4. Lucas Piazon

    Luzas Piazon just scored a great goal in the final Brazil vs Paraguay game in the South American Sub-17s. He starts the play with a give and go, then spins around a defender just outside the box and rifles a shot home. He has faded in and out of the game, but has been overall impressive when he gets involved. Right before the goal had a nice play where he beat two players on the left wing and crossed into the box.

    Nothing that particular about Lucas Piazon. It is a report on the salary that players make in Brazil these days compared to the 70s/80s. Unsurprisingly salaries have gone up, including ones for young player that haven't even made their debuts for the first team (this is where they highlight Lucas). They don't go into his style of play or potential at all beyond the fact that he was seen at Sao Paulo as worthy of a high salary for his age.
  6. Lucas Piazon

    Worth pointing out that the "new Kaka" label is based almost entirely on the fact that Lucas Piazon looks similar to Kaka and also comes through the Sao Paulo youth system. Couple pictures of him that shows his resemblance to kaka: http://s.glbimg.com/es/ge/f/original/2011/03/02/felipemelopiazonamauri_div62.jpg http://s.glbimg.com/es/ge/f/300x230/2011/03/02/lucaspiazon_div_62.jpg He is a striker though, and not an attacking midfielder like Kaka. I've seen several of his games, and he is certainly a promising player. Good finisher and instinctive in the box. His technique, as expected with a Brazilian, is also very good. Although he at times doesn't protect the ball well enough. He also fades in and out of games quite easily, and drops too deep when frustrated and not getting service. All things that good coaching can take care of, and he'll certainly get that at Chelsea. Also worth pointing out Lucas hasn't even made his debut for Sao Paulo first team. He is quite a ways away from being ready for the top level so set your expectations correctly. On a side note, I will say that IMO the best player in that Brazil U-17 team isn't Lucas Piazon, it is #10 Adryan. Looks a class above everybody else on the field. Creative, always getting into space, making great passes, rarely losing the ball. Also deadly set piece taker. Overall an incredible talent and one to look out for. He was also one of Flamengo's best players in the Copinha this year (Flamengo won the tournament), and he was one of the youngest players in that squad. Side note #2, the young Sao Paulo player I wish Chelsea had bought is: http://www.theelastico.com/?p=10 Would be quite a bit more expensive though...
  7. Didier Drogba

    Drogba isn't going anywhere. And BTW, its Vagner Love. Not Wagner.
  8. Didier Drogba

    Now we know where he gets that bad habit from!
  9. Injury News

    Why Bran over Alex? I know we all want to see Bran in a competitive game (carling cup?), but Alex was superb last season and superb coming in for Riccy against ManU. He deserves to partner JT. Alex is world class and is our 3rd choice... if we don't play him when Riccy or JT get injured... he might start thinking about moving elsewhere.
  10. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    I do wish some of our youth/reserve players went out on loan to Premiership sides. I guess we have Sahar this season at Pompey. Would be nice to see some others though as you say. I think Stoke could use some better defenders...
  11. Didier Drogba

    Very well said. Although to be fair there still seem to be a few players out there we can admire. Players like Terry and Maldini. Granted these days they are fewer and far between... and with each passing year there are less than them.
  12. New Kits

    Looks nice but nothing that really makes you say "wow". At least it isn't that awful highlighter color anymore.
  13. Gael Kakuta

    I agree completely. The rationale for it is to ensure our squad is deep enough in case we get hit hard by injuries, but if that is the case it is precisely the type of situation we should have promising youngsters have to step up into. And if its such an important game we really don't want an inexperienced youngster to play... then we've seen under Mourinho other players can become makeshift in certain positions (Essien and Ferreira at CB anyone?).
  14. Didier Drogba

    That isn't really confirmation. Drogba is simply saying he has a contract with us and hasn't reached an agreement with another club. He made no mention of wanting to stay. And lets not forget that AC Milan confirmed just this past week that Chelsea gave them permission to speak with Drogba.
  15. John Terry

    This will not be the defining moment of John Terry's career. His legacy won't be "The player who missed the winning penalty in the Champions League Final and cost Chelsea the cup". It will be "The Captain Fantastic, true Chelsea legend who led the club both as a exemplary player and phenomenal leader, to success on and off the pitch for more than a decade".
