      I think even though he hasnt set the world alight at Chelsea has being missed, he has something which is glaringly missing from Adams game, movement. He is defo a better pass and move player.

      Undoubtably he has been missed, his runs, passing and his odd goals are all missed

      His movements for us were very good and that helped Suarez, Kuyt, Maxi and all last season.

      Can pick out a pass as well and can score goals.

      He was always willing to shy away from a tackle, good luck to him.

      Personally think Maxi could do the Job that Meireles done and better to be honest, Maxi is a much more intelligent footballer.
      I think they both showed they were a good fit for our pass and move style.

      I said this a few weeks ago and I was laughed at.

      Think Maxi could easily play in a midfield 3.

      charlie is clearly a favorite, whilst maxi and carroll seem to have done something wrong.. as for raul he clearly and perhaps unfortunately wasn't part of the plans, but maybe his (and some other) attitudes aren't what our manager is looking for..

      I don't think he is missed as many have said his movement was more electric then the static Adam, however he did have the world's best defensive midfielder playing alongside him something that Adam, Gerrard and Henderson have not had the luxury of since November last year. As he show's at Chelsea he shies away from tackles still and does not offer an effective forward attacking game.

      He would've been part of the plans. We got rid of him because the fooker handed in a transfer request.

      Agree, plus Maxi provides goals.

      Meireles was a very intelligent mover and a little harder worker than Maxi I think. But I think Maxi has far more goalscoring ability and is a bit more intelligent in the attacking third. Wish he was on the pitch more.

      Every single time we're talking about Meireles, there's always this talk about tackles... often from the same posters who love Henderson... I find that odd!

      I'm a big fan of Meireles as a player, despite not throwing himself into every challenge he's a better defender than Adam and Hendo, having played a few times as DM for Porto and Portugal, had better movement and his finishing was top notch as well. He was a top buy and I was really disappointed to see him leave. Maxi is nowhere near as good as him at this point of his career (probably was when younger), Maxi had decent 2 weeks last season in comparison to awful 6 months or so, but what is remembered are his hat-tricks.

      Not really kicked on at Chelsea like I expected. Thought he would have taken his game to a new level after having a year to settle.

      Good player, but I don't think we've missed out on much.

      I think he suits us more than he suits them for sure, but still. Hope he's having fun! >:D

      Chelsea fans HATE him. Just having a look on one of their boards. They are not happy we sold them Torres and Meireles for not far off the price of Ronaldo ;D

      I like how Chelsea buys Fernando Torres and Raul Meireles from us and they are not playing at a level even close to where they were with us, ;D.

      I haven't missed him at all to be honest.

      A player who on his day can look great but his day doesn't seem to come often enough.

      I really liked the look of him before we bought him and thought he was a very good signing but apart from a great spell in the middle of his season with us I don't think he was a player we should have been begging to stay.
