Chico Flores: Swansea defender is unhappy at criticism on social media

Flores was involved in an incident which led to the dismissal of West Ham striker Andy Carroll during Swansea's 2-0 defeat at Boleyn Ground last Saturday.

Carroll failed in his appeal against the red card on Tuesday and Flores, who had a disagreement with Hammers boss Sam Allardyce in a previous clash between the teams, has hit back at people targeting him through the internet.

"I'm a bit tired of the strong insults from the West Ham fans. Whoever doesn't see the aggression in that action is blind," Flores said.

"They should be more preoccupied with the ugly way their team play football: always making very long passes and never quick short passing.

"They should be worried about that before caring about such evident things."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
