4 CL medals, and only played in one.

He contributed about as much to the other 3 as Arnautovic did for Inter.

Barely even played after the group stages in the first two.

I dont get how Jorginho is starting over him, that guy is one of the worst midfielders there is.

i appreciate not every midfielder has to create assists to be useful, but given his vision andd range of passing, his creative output is really.. woeful

Completely off today.
Vision/creativity has never been where Kova excels. This has been repeated over and over and over. It's like expecting Kante to carve open opposition defenses and getting mad when he doesn't deliver. It's these Modric comparisons I suppose that serve to confuse. Kova is the guy to safely carry the ball the from defense to attack with passes and and direct running into spaces. Partnered with Jorginho their job is to control the midfield. But in the final third they're useless. You have Mount, Pulisic and Havertz whose job is to deliver in those areas. In any case not one of Kova's finest moments.

Kovas always been just above mediocre. THe only thing he is good at is taking the ball forward and running with the ball at his feet. Thats all. Passing range, shooting, defensive play, movement, he is below mediocre.

How the hell did he won 4 CL titles is beyond me :D

well, they're all from the bench.

10 minutes last year in the final, none in 17/18, none in 16/17, none in 15/16

he's basically ranocchia - his prime part of his career is being spent on the bench.

That's all? None of our midfielders can do that without losing possession in dangerous areas :lol:

That's why coaches and Chelsea fans love Kova, he's integral to their build up / transition play. If we had Kova we could send all our players foward, (even Handa!!) without worrying about losing the ball.

He also won Chelsea player of the season in 2019/20.

How many midfielders would've started ahead of Modric/Kroos/Casimero or Kante/Jorginho?

He was shit yesterday but he improved massively. Imagine him here instead of fkn Cahla. We would demolish seria A like never before. Thats how good he is now. 8 months ago would never imagine to write something like this lol

I said above mediocre. Good player to have, but nothing spectacular. His ability to take the ball forward is great to have, especially if you play counter attacking football, but it's not like he is world beater or something i'd die to have.

2 well placed assists today, especially the first one was a beauty in the 7 - 0 trashing of Norwich

My boy just scored an absolute banger against Liverpool. He looks nothing like the player we had at Inter.
He is in his prime now so that’s not too surprising. What was he 21 when we sold him?

Happy for him he’s found a home at Chelsea. He is still not a sure starter there though.
