How big is YOUR penis?
Unfortunately, your team will no longer have the support of one Syaz-Wan, he is said to have rooted back to Manchester United, but that is of course until Ronaldo goes to Real Madrid.













But WTF anyway ? I'm just curious how Scolari will do in the EPL....

Yep, and prolly a few more, if anyone notices any mistakes such as that, or wishes me to incorprorate something to the first post, such as loans, rumors, history, whatever, post it here or PM it to me and I will.

btw, to everyone reading news that a deal for Frank Lampard to join Inter for 9M quid has been sealed. thats just bollocks by Goal.com(and its "reliable" source = Sports France!!), his agent denied reports that such a deal was made.
just in case anyone was believing the s.hit goal.com is posting...........
cheers

BBC Sports says that either he's agreed a 4 year deal with us, or a deal with Inter... I hope it's the former.

Abramovich seems to want Arshavin, and Scolari wants Kaka and Ribery. I dunno what my thoughts about this are, actually.

9 million for Frank? 9 million for FRANK LAMPARD? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA, now that is all the proof needed that it's total bollocks. Boy, the papers are so stupid to print such drivel.

I reackon Arshavin will go to Barca, as it's always been his dream team and Barca do want him it seems, so good luck to him there.

Roman is also thinking about Zhirkov coming to the Bridge. I know very little about Zhirkov so I don't have an opinion of the guy really.

He was the best left back in the Euros so i think he will be a great addition to an already fantastic squad.

Just watched on Portuguese TV that Deco was/will be doing medicals in order to join Chelsea. He was asked by Scolari. Usually when it comes on the TV news it means it's almost certain, especially RTP (the state channel).

Now it seems more likely that Lampard will leave you guys I guess, even though I find that somewhat surprising, at least I looked at him as Chelsea symbol.

Deco just confirmed as a new signing. Looks like Lamps may be on his way. Unfortunately for the Premiership that should take the shackles off Ballack. :(

Deco signed for us, hope he does well, although I'm not very optimistic, particularly as this suggests Lamps might leave.

I'd take Deco or Ballack ahead of Lampard any day!

You won't find one Chelsea fan who agrees with you though Deni. Like JT, Lamps IS Chelsea to us. I will be very surprised if he leaves though, very surprised.

Chelsea considers Frank Lampard as having, and I quote, "no price" and being "not for sale for any amount."

“There will be other meetings with Frank and his entourage and he will be offered a very rich agreement in the unlikely event that Lampard decides to reject our current offer, therefore we prefer to keep him for the last year of his contract without allowing him to move to another team. We have had no contact with the Italian club or with anyone else. Any interest in Frank is unnecessary and not welcome".

And Roman Abramovich has already agreed to offer Frank a big pay raise to renew his contract.

If Frank was unhappy at Chelsea then that would be the only reason to move on, but he is not unhappy at Chelsea, so I see no foundation to this constant media speculation regarding Frank.

I'm intrigued by the signing of Deco. Should be interesting I think. I don't think he'll have much trouble adapting to the EPL. Deco's a tough little guy, and still has a lot to offer. Intersting signing indeed, and at £8 million well worth it.

I hear that Scolari is also pushing hard to sign Robinho from Real too, and says that he knows how to get the best out of him. Could cost us £25 million to sign him.

The funniest thing today? The Chelsea hating Daily Mirror, claim that we are gonna make a bid for Adebayor.:rofl: Seriously, who the fu<k would pay this guy the £120,000 a week he is looking for. Jose maybe but certainly not Scolari. I assume this is his agent attempting to scare Barca or AC Milan into making a move for him. £30 million for HIM? You have just gotta be kidding me. :)

Good news that Maka has signed an extension to his contract though. I love this fella, and I'm happy he's re-signed.

£30m for Adebayor? :rofl: £3m would be genorous. I'd like to see what Scolari will do with Sheva, because depending on the system, I think he could become invaluable next season. No sign of Drogba leaving yet either, although I think you would be better off without him.

I don't think Robinho would suit the EPL. It's been a strange summer so far, not too many realistic names bandied about so far.

Maka is a fantastic player with a great footballing brain. You don't lose that, and that's why he has stayed at the the top for so long. i see Deco as similiar. His intelligence will overcome a lack of pace, and his vision will tear holes in teams. I can't see Lampard going to easy, especially not for the £9m quoted, even if he is in the last year of his contract. Lampard is the main consistent source of goals for yas, and they would want to think twice about selling.

Any chance on letting us have Ballack?

Mainly agree with all that mate.

Yeah, I'm happy about Maka, and I don't think anyone expects to see the Deco of 5 years ago, but as you say he still has talent aplenty.

Any chance on letting us have Ballack?

In a word?........Nope.:D

Now that Deco's here, mixed feelings really. lets hope he toughens up and we won't need JT hammering the ball to his legs for him to snap out of diving. :D

Great player, as we've seen in the Euros, and despite his age, his game is not based on pace, and thats a plus. What worries me is his commitment, we all saw how he self-destructed at Barca last season. And what worries me now is how Lampsy sees all this.
But the good thing is, Scolari made it top priority to sort out Frank's future with us and keep him here where he belongs.
Now all we need is for the Carvalho speculation to die down and sign a decent and younger striker/winger.
