When Chelsea bought Michael Essien from Lyon, it meant that Tiago would be getting limited time and possibly leave the club. Tiago ended up going to Lyon where he has been playing extremely well. So who would have you picked?

tiago is better byfar in my opinion,lyon was very clever in selling essien with a huge fee and getting a better player with a less amount of money

Tiago. Since Diarra is doing a lot of defensive work. Tiago bring a lot creativity. The three Diarra/Tiago/juninho is better than the three Essien/Diarra/Juninho to sum it up.

Pity Tiago got a yellow in the end of the first leg. Things would have probably be different... :wallbang:

Shrewd bit of business by Aulas it appears.

But you never know, next season Essien could be great, Tiago could be rubbish.

Football opinion changes overnight.

Essien by a country mile.

What a crap thread this is, Essien will shut most of you guys up again soon anyway.

I hate the fact that he plays for Chelscum but I admire this player. :thumbsup:

Essien is much better for Chelsea than Tiago was, mind you Gudjonssen is much better than both were.

so it seems both clubs did well out of the swap.

I think tiago was a bit limited at chelski, he was playing a grafter role and not allowed to be involved in a lot of the play, Essien has done ok nothing out of this world but he hasn't been a big dud, but IMO Tiago has been more impressive this season

Essien will prove the better player playing for the better club(Chelsea). Diarra is on his way to Chelsea as well.

Well, with Fletcher in the team i could run our midfield. But for 30 Million, or however much they spent on him they could've got a much better player
