The Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez proved yet again that he is an absolute animal and should not be allowed to play in any competitive football match ever again. His totally unprovoked attack on Branislav Ivanovic in yesterdays game at Anfield was a vicious act, and his disgusting play-acting afterwards only compounded his guilt and emphasised what a devious, cheating, disgusting excuse for a human being he really is.

Chelsea’s £50Million flop Fernando Torres is adamant that he will continue to work hard to regain his prolific goalscoring days, to repay the faith shown in him by the club.
The Spaniard scored a brace in Thursday’s home leg of The Europa League quarter-final match against Rubin Kazan, his third and fourth goals since the turn of the year. His other two goals came in the shape of the equalizing goal against Brentford to earn the Blues a FA Cup replay, and a goal in the home win over Steaua Bucureşti last month. He is yet to score a Premier League goal in 2013.
Manchester City defender Micah Richards has reportedly become a surprise target for Chelsea FC.
Chelsea were expected to try to sign an experienced centre-back, but now appear to be chasing Micah Richards, with a view to Branislav Ivanovic returning to play in the centre, allowing David Luiz more time in midfield.
Richards is currently out injured, and expected to make his return in early February.
The Englishman was at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night to watch Chelsea’s 1-0 loss at the hands of Queens Park Rangers, sparking various rumours to circulate. Rafa Benitez when asked, did not rule out such a move, further fuelling speculation the versatile Man City defender could be a Blue player in the near future.
Queens Park Rangers’ boos Harry Redknapp has claimed that yesterday’s 1-0 win over Chelsea was one of his best ever victories.
Chelsea were entering the match in form, having won 7 of their last 8 matches, with QPR however started the game on the back of three consecutive defeats, and without an away win for over a year!
Chelsea dominated much of the game, but could only muster up two shots on target, from 26 shooting chances. This allowed Shaun Wright-Phillips goal for QPR to snatch all 3 points.
Marko Marin has denied rumours suggesting he was about to be sent out on loan, with a Bundesliga return reported.
Marin has struggled to break into the team since joining Chelsea, having missed 3 months through injury, and a loan move had been expected to help the player gain match-fitness.
The German winger signed for the Blues from Werder Bremen in August for around £7million, and signed a 5 year deal.
Marin had been heavily involved in Chelsea’s pre-season, and had been expected to play a big part in the team’s season before being ruled out until November.
Barcelona are looking into re-signing Oriol Romeu from Chelsea as a replacement for Seydou Keita. The defensive midfielder won 14 trophies during his four years at Barcelona but had a clause in his contract that allowed him to leave for free if he didn’t play enough games in a season. The 32-year old has joined Chinese club Dalian Aerbin on massive wages and Barcelona are desperate for a replacement.
Chelsea host Valencia in the final group game in the series of games in the group stage in the Champion’s league. Chelsea is most probably going all out in the game, having so much staked on the fixture. As such Villas-Boas is most likely going to maintain the high line structure that he has been adopting since the start of the season as an attempt to play the Offside rule and to lend the force of the Midfielders in counter attacks. At first sight there seems to be a few key battles that would be happening.
In a few hours the defining game between Chelsea and Valencia would begin. Never in Chelsea’s recent history under the reign of Roman Abramovich has the qualification for the knock out stage been so tense. The job that Andre Villas-Boas now holds could most possibly come down to this. As have been seen Luiz Felipe Scolari have been sacked in the 08/09 season due to him not being able to win the Premiership.
It has been known that after the Newcastle game, Andre Villas-Boas have spoken publicly that Alex and Anelka, having handed in a transfer request, would be allowed to leave the club, and they have since proceeded on to having separate trainings on their own.
Nicolas Anelka, now 33, have been at the club for four years now, and have proven to have an effective strike partner in fellow want-away striker Didier Drogba. He has been prolific since then, making decent runs and having an relatively impressive run as Drogba’s strike partner under the previous manager, Carlo Ancelotti, when playing the diamond- 4-4-2 formation. Due to the controversy at the 2010 World Cup, Anelka have since quit international football, and thus have pledged to ‘commit his all to the club.” And it is precisely this reason why the act of letting Anelka go being a bad choice.
Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka is in the last year of his contract at Chelsea and as yet he or the club have not made a decision on a new contract. He has been attracting interest from a number of clubs and the latest of those is the Russian Premier League side Anzhi Makhachkala.
The Russian side are owned by multi billionaire Suleyman Kerimov and he is the progress of attracting some big names to his club in readiness for an assault on the title next season. Anzhi are currently managed by the Brazilian Roberto Carlos who made their interest known in Anelka when he gave an interview to French TV station Canal Plus.
