Footballers' contracts usually have a long list telling them things they aren't allowed to do. We would have thought driving a cart round like this with two team-mates on board is one of the items on that list. Chelsea star David Luiz did a bit of off-roading at the club's Cobham training ground this week, [.

Winning a cup competition can bring out strong emotions. In the case of Chelsea interim manager Rafa Benitez, a dramatic victory in tonight's Europe League final appeared to stimulate a fetish for men with long hair.

BENAYOUN TREATMENT - A DISGRACE

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

Quite rightly, the attention in the aftermath from Anfield on Sunday focused on Luis Suarez and his disgusting behaviour. However, yesterday some disturbing developments came to light involving Yossi Benayoun and it's a disgrace, it really is!.

I am not the biggest Benayoun fan on the planet and of that there is no secret as my mates will tell you based purely on his footballing ability and his value to the Chelsea team.

Blues boss comments on summer signings

Premiership Talk Blog at related • 0 views

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo took some time to reflect on his team's summer signings ahead of today's pre-season training opening day, asserting that the new arrivals will only strengthen the European champions.

The Blues lost experienced trio Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, and Jose Bosingwa this summer but added future stars such as Marko Marin and Eden Hazard, both of whom the manager has backed to shine in the Blues uniform.

DEBATE: Chelsea's strongest eleven - The attacking three.

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

The most exciting part of the teams framework is the attacking three who support the main striker. These guys have a job to do in both halves of the pitch and the defensive aspect of the game is as important as their work going forward.

We saw the combination of Mata, Hazard and Oscar (MAZACAR) under Di Matteo flourish at the beginning of the season with everyone (including me) raving about them.

"I will announce something soon on my future".

Roberto Di Matteo said in his press conference yesterday that he doesn't think anyone will leave the club in this transfer window but I disagree. Yossi Benayoun begs to differ with comments he made recently.

He said:
"I will announce something soon on my future as I am taking time on my decision and want to make the right one,"

I do think that Benayoun would act as squad cover for one of our three attacking midfield positions but it's obvious that someone of his experience would want first team football.

Benayoun featured under Benitez at Liverpool and he knows the player inside out so you would now expect him to be involved.

Yossi Benayoun has been linked with a deadline day loan to Liverpool. He was a fan favorite from his time at Anfield and tipped in with 3 hatricks.

Yossi would be a useful squad player for Liverpool and could be used as an impact sub. Tho Liverpool are still thought to be chasing more important targets like a new striker.

Cazorla for Song is the completion of a midfield restructure

The transfer window has shut, and as many suspected, we were largely inactive in the final few days, managing only to shift Bendtner and Park out on loan, trimming players from the wage bill who did not feature in our plans for the season ahead. Since then, there has been quite the reaction, with many dismayed at the lack of arrivals, particularly following the departure of Alex Song.

Gunners aim to loan out Chelsea ace

Premiership Talk Blog at related • 1 view

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been tight-lipped about the prospect of signing another midfielder to replace Alex Song but it seems that he can steal a massive bargain in the form of Chelsea star Michael Essien.

Essien, who was once considered one of the Premier League's strongest defensive midfielders, has struggled for a consistent place in the Blues' startling line-up since returning from a serious injury last season and finds himself significantly down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge in this campaign.

Two more to be shown the door at Chelsea?

Roberto Di Matteo, to me anyway, has given the strongest indication that Florent Malouda and Yossi Benayoun are on their way out of the door as early as the end of the transfer window.

Speaking today ahead of Reading at the Bridge tomorrow night, he was asked about their futures considering neither of them have been involved in our competitive games so far this season and he said:

With plenty of new additions at Chelsea and not forgetting Yossi Benayoun returning to the fold from his loan at Arsenal, there is plenty of players fighting for the midfield places at Chelsea this season and one name has popped up a few times this summer being linked with a move and that is Raul Meireles.

DECISION TIME: YOSSI BENAYOUN.

As we all know, Chelsea have to register 25 players and no more ahead of the new season for the Premier League and Champions League competitions but we have a problem. At the moment with our new signings, promotions and returning loan players, we have 31 players in our first team squad.

Remembering that although he is listed as part of our squad, Patrick Van Aanholt has already been loaned out this season with Vitesse again.

Many of the players will return today for some light jogging, a few stretches and a few minutes on the sun beds to top up their summer tans. Andre Santos, for example, can't wait to get going again, according to his Twitter account, but sadly nobody seems to have told him that Yossi Benayoun has gone back to Chelsea after his season long loan:

I can't be the only one now with an image in my head of Andre scouring the training ground looking for Yossi like a kid might look for his lost puppy.

With five games to go, 3rd place was in Arsenal's hands. It wasn't the season we'd hoped for, but considering how badly we started, we looked like saving some dignity. Four games later, we are looking at another typical end-of-season collapse.

Of course, it's nothing like last season, where the prize we'd lost was far greater.

Arsenal 3-3 Norwich: Gunner’s Grip On Third Slackened By Late Morison Equaliser (Photos & Highlights)

Arsenal's grip on their Champions League spot suddenly became incredibly tentative after coming back from 2-0 down to 3-2 up, only for Steve Morison to nab a deserved equaliser for Norwich in the last five minutes.

Yossi Benayoun opened the scoring after just 65 seconds with a slinky little number but Arsenal found themselves 2-1 down at the break after Wojciech Szczesny wafted Wes Hoolahan's tame effort over his line and was then left stranded as Grant Holt ballooned the Canaries ahead with a heavily-deflected shot from the edge of the area following a quicksilver counter-attack.

The rain from Spain falls mainly in the Irish net

Morning all from the wettest place on earth, and I include the bottom of the sea in that.

The weather may suit the mood here in Ireland today after last night's dismal showing in Euro 2012. I don't think anybody had any realistic expectation of a result against Spain – perhaps we might have scraped a draw – but I don't think it was unrealistic to expect them to play like professional footballers instead of last-pick in the schoolyard 'shit, we've got no players and we've only got 7 men.
