Petr Cech: Praised by Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard

Cech joined Chelsea from French club Rennes in 2004 since when he has collected three Premier League winners' medals plus another in the Champions League.

And the midfielder says the six-foot, five-inch Cech is also a leader in the dressing room, telling the London Standard: "I think it is too easy to overlook a goalkeeper's performance when they're that good.

"People talk about mistakes and things like that but his consistency and level in our team since he has been at the club has been amazing.

"He is a real presence, a great lad and a leader in the dressing room, everything about him is great.

"People talk about goalkeeper of the year and maybe overlook Petr. That's only because he's been so good that they take him for granted.

"Petr can go on for years, that's for sure. He is fit as a fiddle. He's only 30 so in goalkeeping years he's got a long way ahead of him."

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!
