£20M plus Sturridge, here you go Chelsea, we'll even gift wrap him for Xmas :)

Blackburn have signed Scott Dann. That's a really good deal for around £6M. Dann will be there for longer than Jones would have been anyway and they're £10M better off with an established player replacing a rookie (however promising).
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

By handing in a transfer request he's just saved us some £ on any pay-off. Playing a blinder here Raul.

You've got to question some of the advice these players are getting from their agents.  But like you state, he's playing a blinder lol

Meireles has signed for Chelsea for £12M. Pity. But no point keeping a player who wants away.
Cheers,

Sad news indeed, liked him a lot.  Oh well, onwards and upwards as they say.

Agreed Gurdeep but his appearances would have been limited especially with Gerrard soon to return.

Adding another striker is good business. I just hope Raul doesn't slot a through ball onto Torres for him to score when we play them.  :o

Exactly. Team spirit and morale are priceless. Maybe this is why we tied Jordan Henderson up so quickly.

Anything less than 15 million would be dispappointing.

Bit strange strengthening a rival especially when we didnt really need to sell after shifting so much dead wood.

I have no problem with them getting a consolation goal, as long as it's not at the Kop end.

absolute madness allowing Moreless to leave.....and especially to one of our rivals.

Madness.

We are weaker tonight, after today's events.


In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

We know there's been discontent all Summer over his contract situation. He fitted in well here but we'll only have strengthened a rival if he slots in as well there. Torres is a case in point. Ditto Benayoun.

Let him rock the Chelsea boat when they bring in another midfielder in January or next Summer. Other players, at least publicly, have relished the competition new signings have brought. He, apparently, felt the opposite. He'll not neccessarily walk into Chelsea's midfield either. Still, counting his money will take him longer each month.

tis barmy, Ed............we have been trying to offload two of our most technical players since May - Moreless and Maxi.   

And we pay 36 million for someone who can't trap a bag of wet cement, and looks like a donkey running in wet treacle.

I think I am in the twilight zone.
