Yesterday, transfer deadline day, will go down in history as the day Chelsea Football Club just buried their heads in the sand and prayed that what we already have will ensure we finish in the top four.

It was the day that the only deal involving any of our playing staff, as far as I can make out, saw Patrick Bamford go to MK Dons on loan. There were, shamefully, no incoming deals to fix our inadequacies, just a shut your eyes and hope mentality.

All season we`ve been insisting that the back-up keepers cannot step in and fill in for Petr Cech. So what do we do, we chase Jack Butland, a young keeper with great potential, only to be told he`s not interested and in the end preferred to join Stoke City.

We totally ignore the fact that in a defensive midfield position we`re seriously lacking and we totally ignore the fact that due to the absence of Victor Moses (away on African Cup of Nations duty) that we seriously lack width.

Now I`m still not sure who actually runs the transfer scenario within the walls of Stamford Bridge (but I have my suspicions), but I`m of the opinion that results, over the coming weeks will show that yesterday was the day the dream died, a wasted opportunity, a head in the sand time – you mark my words!
