Silly Season is not quite here yet. But if pre-season for Silly Season is any indication, we're in for a doozy this summer. Are you ready for the madness? Are you ready to shake your head in wonderment, amazement, disappointment, merriment? Here are a couple warm-up exercises.
PETR CECH EMERGENCY LOAN
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is set to make a sensational emergency loan move to Southampton following Fraser Forster's serious injury.
No word from whoever came up with this -- obviously the best placed sources for an emergency loan between two Premier League teams would be in Italy, right? -- on any sirens or other such klaxxons. Disappointing. It's supposed to be an emergency. A goalkeeper emergency! Five alarms! Bee-do-bee-do-bee-do...
JORDAN HENDERSON TO CHELSEA
Henderson has turned down a new contract understood to be worth £80,000-a-week.
More talks are planned but Chelsea are monitoring the situation closely.
Only fitting for Steven Gerrard's successor to be linked with a Chelsea move, no? Thanks in advance for the next ten years of headed own goals, backpass assists, and crucial slips, Jordan!
