Says me, being optimistic!
It’s the morning after the night before and the realisation is still settling in relating to FIFA refusing to let business as usual, transfer-wise, continue at Chelsea Football Club, whilst their appeal against the two-window ban is heard.
It is, as many will agree, a harsh decision considering the leeway the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona were afforded.
However, the decision has been made and we now have to abide by it, whatever our personal thoughts are.
But, looking back, we flouted with a ban over the Gael Kakuta case and perhaps there is a certain irony we’re about to cop for this ban after the transfer of Bertrand Traore raised a few FIFA eyebrows, with both players no longer at the club.
Last night, trying to come to terms with the ban, I thought about how Chelsea would cope when it came to select a starting eleven, but tiredness got the better of me and the next thing I knew it was Saturday morning.
But flicking through the social media sites, I came across the post below which would seem to indicate the ban isn’t as bad as we first feared with the author coming up with a plausible first eleven with named back-ups for all positions.

As usual, your views on the transfer ban and the above social network posting would be most appreciated.
