I don't know how good Eden Hazard is, but he is whoring himself about like LeBron James. Very unappealing.

I will also officially let out a primal scream if Man Utd buy Leighton Baines and he suddenly starts being considered as a guaranteed player for England. He's been consistently very good for Everton for years.

And I see Heskey just got released by Villa. I'm sure Allardyce will have him at West Ham in a stunning display of shit strikers who fall down a lot alongside Carlton Cole next season.

So Barton banned for 12 games then. 12 months would have been better.

I wonder if the QPR players are getting T-shirts made up in support of Barton, and if there will be a witch-hunt against Tevez, Aguero and Kompany because it was all their fault after all.

They'll still make him captain, when his ban's up. They guy's a ******g liability - throw him out altogether.

One thing I really liked about when Barton blew up is when he faked the headbutt at Kompany - and Kompany didn't flinch. That was nice.

I think it was down to Kompany remembering Barton was a pacifist.


Although Barton himself obviously forgot.

So Chelsea have released Kalou and Bosingwa. I don't particularly think either of them has been astounding - Bosingwa in particular being pretty dire the last year or so - but Kalou was a solid squad player. More important he is only 26. How do you release a 26 year old international who you tend to play often? His wages must be mental if the club aren't interested in renewing a contract. And 17 million for Bosingwa 4 years ago and now they get nowt for him and he's only 29 as well. I just haven't heard lately of a big club just releasing young-ish players like that without trying to get resale for them earlier.

More importantly it confirms that at Chelsea the manager does not buy players. He may not even have any say into what kind of players are needed. They don't even have a manager and have bought two players, recalled two from loan to stay next season, loaned one out again and probably will sell Ferreira, Essien and Malouda.

So Hazard's going to the Chavs http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/foo...-his-game.html

We've released Saha http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...Tottenham.html. Anyone want him??

And I've heard a rumour that Juve may be kicked out of the CL due to alleged match fixing...that means there maybe a place going spare, I can think of a very deserving case that could fill that slot

Maybe not the kind of banter a Spurs fan wants mind...
