    Chelsea's highly-rated youngster Charly Musonda has joined Spanish club Real Betis on an initial six-month loan. Musonda will move to Spain to play first-team football until the end of the season, when there is an option to extend the loan by a further 12 months. - http://www.telegraph.co.uk

    Good to hear, he can need the experience. Don't think he'd be given a lot of first team opportunities at Chelsea now anyway, with their crisis and all.

    And for the bad news, De Bruyne will be out for 6 months, little tears in the ankle and knee. Really bummed this has to happen to one of favorite players. I hope this will not hamper his career, he's too good. Finally stood up against a good team as well with an assist and goal.

    It's 6 weeks ... not 6 months (don't give me a heart attack) ... cfr. Vertonghen who will be out for 6 to 12 weeks ... hopefully City won't take any risks and only let Kevin return when he has healed completely (same goes for Kompany). Vermaelen remains a worry though ... he's playing again but not that well.

    I can't tell (as I don't collect signed jerseys) ... checked the price of a new one (not signed) ... €85 (in the "Red Devils" official shop).

    Agree with that. Patience among youngsters has become increasingly rare in football nowadays. Shame that Obbi Oulare left Brugge so early. Promising kid with all the right elements but needed more time to find his breakthrough first.

    Argh right, meant to say 6 weeks; brain must have went on a trip when I wrote that.

    As much as I want Musonda Jr. to succeed, this is all just part of the honeymoon phase (see for example Memphis Depay, Anthony Martial, ...). Comparing a young (unproven in terms of results) talent to a football legend is cringe-worthy at best.

    The true test of approval lies several games ahead when his opponents will have had time to to adjust. Either they render his dribbling null or they out-muscle him... or he truly starts living up the hype and gets a foothold into professional football. That said, those are some nice dribbles and I like how he dictates the tempo.

    Loved his goal, smart thinking staying behind the others and making space for himself.

    After 115 days as FIFA's No.1 ranked team we're now back to 2nd place ... what a shame (I did enjoy joining that select group of NTs that made it to the top of FIFA's little list though).

    Thanks to Gazeta Sporturilor we'll gain 12 FIFA points in May and hold onto our 2nd place (Chile would have overtaken us) ... this Romanian newspaper provided proof that during our Nov. 2012 friendly Romania made 8 subs instead of 6 ... it doesn't look like it has cost us much ... didn't need play-offs to reach Brazil2014 (would have been a pot 1 NT regardless of that 2012 friendly) and ended up as top seed in the final Brazil2014 draw and for Russia2018 Qs ... the players involved will lose a cap though and Benteke's goal tally will drop to 6 (that's 1 goal every 4 ties for us).

    If he's the kind of player that isn't willing to fight for his spot, I'd rather not have him on the team. Always found his motivation shady as ****.
