Hopefully under a less stifling atmosphere, our attacking players will start to find their mojo again.

Funny that you keep saying things like this when the first things Guus has done since he came in have been to make us more defensively tight, playing more "direct" football, much less concerned with possession in the oppo third; and he has even openly told the attacking players they need to work harder defensively.

So Hazard off to Madrid in the summer apparently. Bale in the other direction?

Hazard has been "off to Madrid" almost as soon as we signed him. I'll believe it when it happens, not before, and certainly not based on articles written by 'Phil Space' where an unnamed "friend of the player" is claimed to have said the player will leave. No direct quotes. No attribution. Yet these articles will be believed by the more moronic elements of our fan base who need a reason other than the former manager running players into the ground for the drop in form (remember, Hazard isn't the only player to have under-performed this season... are they ALL trying to force moves elsewhere by playing poorly?)

Do believe Hazard is going. He has clearly stopped playing for us for a pretty long time. I dont think he has the stomach for the PL year in year out. Never really thought he would stay in the PL for up to 6 years. He just wants a easier time in Madrid and a easier league too. Would be glad to see him go. He has talked about wanting to stay here and become a legend like Lampard blah blah. All trash, he doesn't have the loyalty or heart to become a legend here. Lost respect for him to be honest. He can take Oscar with him too.

Reasons of who is to blame aside, it is sad that this hasn't worked out. Not saying we should keep him, infact I would advocate cashing in, however it's just regretable that it hasn't worked. He may have been far from his best this season, but Lukaku blossoming elsewhere is nothing compared to what we potentially are losing with Hazard, he will no doubt flourish at PSG or RM.

To be honest I would get sick of getting kicked by talentless cloggers every week too.

And that's just in training!! ;-)
