Still can't see it happening.

Meanwhile at Mendes Wanderers, 1 Portugal International moved out to make room for another coming in.
Hee hee! The new wonderkind missed a sitter in the Cup defeat against Stoke.

Add me to the list of people that know nothing of Rashica's body of work, or had even heard of him a fortnight or so ago, yet are more excited about this signing than any other in a very, very long time. I've even found out the Kosovan pronunciation of his name.
Shitza has an ominous ring to it. I think he will give defenders the runs.

I wish you lot would lay off Sasa Curcic.  How many clubs can boast of a player voted Rookie Illusionist of the Year in BOTH Las Vegas and Reno Nevada?

Milivojevic would be a good pick up imo. Was on the bench for Palace yesterday so not sure whether he's carrying an injury or out of favour but he's a proven premier league DM who I imagine they'd sell for 15m.
I know he's 29 but I just don't see why Palace would sell him for £15m.

I would definitely like a midfielder with experience and PL nous though.

From today's Guardian's review of the weekend games

"Chances dwindling for Chelseaís academy kids
Much of the praise heaped on Frank Lampard about this time last year focused on his apparent eagerness to find a place in the first-team setup for the academy graduates that had been rendered collateral damage by the money and splendour of the Abramovich era. But against Liverpool, the spearhead of last seasonís locally sourced side, Tammy Abraham, was consigned to the bench by the £47m Timo Werner and the £72m Kai Havertz was picked ahead of Callum Hudson-Odoi, whose mettle will be further tested when Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic are fit. Ruben Loftus-Cheek was not in the squad at all. Fikayo Tomoriís emergency introduction was the first time he had kicked a ball since February. And Mason Mount is playing in the position preferred by Havertz. Suddenly Lampardís new-look Chelsea begin to resemble the old one: expensive signings, a squad overflowing with pedigree Ė and a manager who needs to get results in the here and now."

Time for a call to Tammy's agent?

The way Dean was talking on Friday the most I could see is another loan move for Tammy.  Iíd be over the moon.

There was a tweet at the end of last week from John Percy of the Telegraph saying we had bid for Tammy. The link when I clicked it had been removed and now the tweet has been deleted by the looks of it. Something in this then maybe as normally heís seems to be quite a reliable source?

He is hardly likely to swap the Chelsea bench for ours though

Don't forget he also won the Serbian version of Celebrity Big Brother. 'Big Brother VIP Serbia'. Wasn't there also a story of him considering himself to be a real lothario/sex stud. He seems to fall into a category somewhere between "A bit of a character" and "Batshit Crazy".

I'm sure when he retired from football it was so he could spend his time making love to beautiful ladies instead, which is fair enough if you ask me.

And I've been to Croatia a few times, if the female population of Serbia is anything like theirs he was ridiculously spoiled for choice.
