    Out of curiosity... who do you think has the strongest squad? Man Utd or Chelsea?

    Also, were you confident you'd beat Man Utd on sunday?
    Chelsea definitely have a stronger squad. Midfield is where that is very clear, and hence why I selected Chelsea as my prediction for 1st... and Arsenal 2nd.

    I didn't think we'd lose, and thought a win far more likely than a loss. The game was a tad bizarre by all counts, really.

    OHHHHHHHH!!!!

    HOW very FORTUNATE.

    Chelsea have got previous for this rubbish, what with tapping up Ashley Cole... and then they get away without any penalty whatsoever... It really is such an embarrassing decision.

    They're not even a big club ffs.

    Kakuta's contract wasn't valid, why should we be punished? The only embarrasing decision here isn't CAS's, but FIFA's in the first place.

    Probably Platini-Penguin more than anything.

    But take my word for it, if it had happened to Arsenal, they'd have confiscated the Emirates and made us ground share with Spuds :puke:

    Chelsea have had their transfer ban lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport after reaching an agreement with Lens over the signing of Gael Kakuta.

    A statement on the Cas website said that the two clubs and the player had accepted the player's contract with the French side was not valid.

    Thus Kakuta could not have terminated it prematurely, so Chelsea could not be liable for inducing it to be breached.

    The Cas said all parties agreed the proceedings would remain confidential.

    Actual transcript from secret recording taken


    Bruce Buck: Now chaps, aren't you being a tad unreasonable about this whole Kakuta thing?

    Lens Guy: Mais non?

    BB: Well if you read the contract, it turns out the whole thing wasn't actually valid! Your lawyers, despite being experts in this field and having written plenty of other contracts that are perfectly fine, have let you down decidedly here.

    LG: Sacre Bleu! You Engleesh types are right! Excusez us! Can we make this go away without any money changing hands?


    BB: Of course, we here at Chelsea are nothing if not a loveable, helpful bunch.

    LG: Theese ees of course, tres embarrasseeng. Can we perhaps... mention nothing to ze papiers?

    BB: Certainly, my good man, we shall protect your reputation after your most grievous error, think nothing of it!

    LG: Ahh... merci. You are a wonderful 'uman beeing.

    What isn't? Terry's been outstanding in recent weeks, he's still our captain and he's still expected to do a job - and I have absolutely no doubt that he'll deliver another world class performance.

    Captain, leader, legend.

    Yep, and if Capello has any integrity in this decision he'll drop him from all future squads. Who cares? I'd prefer us to win the commuinity shield than England winning the world cup.

    Anyway, the media have it win, win regardless of England's performance in the summer.

    Top notch of people in the England football team..




    Rio won't be half the captain JT would've been in the World Cup. Although in some ways I wouldn't be surprised that (if we do win) Rio and JT raise the cup together.
