Willian: Backed for Chelsea move

Chelsea are the odds-on favourites to beat Tottenham to the signing of Willian after Sky Bet re-opened betting on the Brazilian's future.

"However, as the story developed new betting patterns followed and the Blues were quickly backed into heavy favourites to land the in-demand Anzhi star."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
