Bertrand Traore should be Chelsea's long term project

Bertrand Traore's career at Chelsea is flourishing at the moment and fans must be even more pleased as the player was very close to a loan move to Marseille in the winter transfer window. Against Manchester City in the recent 5-1 FA Cup rout, Traore scored his third goal for the Blues in the span of three weeks.

Paris SG, who finished second in Group A behind Real Madrid, have reached the knockout stages of the Champions League for the fourth consecutive season, their best ever run. They were eventually knocked out in the quarter finals in the last three campaigns.

Mourinho: The Reasons Behind his Sacking

Jose Mourinho is the archetypal Marmite type of person, you either love him or you loathe him, there is not much in between.

Time for Louis van Gaal to quit?

Irish internationals …

Man City have so far persevered with 2 recognised strikers in Aguero and Bony. Equally Wenger has persisted with Giroud and Walcott in Danny Welbeck's injury …
