Papy Djilobodji's great, sad Chelsea adventure will soon be at an end

Perhaps one day we'll find out just exactly what Chelsea were thinking in signing Papy Djilobodji on the last day of the summer transfer window.

Was it a favor to his agent?  Did somebody play a prank on Emanalo's copy of Football Manager?  Did we think he was the next Gary Cahill?  Did Mourinho simply lock him away in a dungeon as collateral damage in some sort of power play between him and the board?  Has Hiddink not found the keys to said dungeon?  Is Papy a CIA agent and this whole thing was just cover for a secret mission?

If the latter is true, it sounds like Big Papy's next assignment is in Germany.

The report claims that Werder will pay €400k for the 6-month loan.  That's not bad for a useless player.  Maybe they'd want to take Falcao off our hands, too?
