      Can you imagine it. Ashley Barnes lining up for Chelsea in the Champions League. @Mr Burns might spontaneously explode (had he not disappeared from NSC and returned under a different name).

      Let it be so.

      Sky have hours to fill and a largely quite dull transfer window to big up to draw viewers. They will report most rumours from the papers (aka 'sky sources'). In this window, they can't quite afford to properly check on everything and make sure there's some substance to a rumour rather than a bored journo.

      As such, while there's usually a slightly more substance to a rumour that makes it onto SSN, I'd treat the rumours this window with a just a touch more salt.

      Why is this so difficult for posters to understand:-

      Having loaned out all their Hone Grown Players Chelsea found themselves unable to name a 25 man squad.
      As that situation can't change now because all loans were season long, Chelsea can only buy HGP's if they want to add to their EPL squad.
      That's all before the team has had it's funding cut rather limiting the pool of players they can shop in.

      Hmmm sky sources are usually pretty accurate though.

      He's better than many on here gave him credit for, but he's not that good.

      I guess he'll be taking the place of the rough and ready Costa, but in the guise of an English gent

      Not tall enough for Chelsea's current bout of insanity (Carroll, Crouch).

      Ideal, on the other hand for the Albion. Break the club's PL poundshop transfer record and chuck in Hemed and Baldock for free. Wouldn't have to even google him
