Chelsea transfer ban

Chelsea have today been banned from registering new players for the next two transfer windows, meaning that they are unable to buy anyone until January 2011.

This is brilliant news.

The punishment was handed out by Fifa, the world governing body so it's not to be sniffed at.

Chelsea will inevitably appeal but I just hope for once a high profile club is told where to stick it.

The punishment is after the club were found guilty of inducing Gael Kakuta to break his contract with French club Lens in 2007.

Chelsea must also pay Lens £114,000 in additional compensation and the player has been banned from playing for four months.

The Chelsea scumbags official statements says they will "mount the strongest appeal possible" and they consider sanctions "totally disproportionate to the alleged offence".

You can buy Drogba, you can even buy the championship (sometimes) but you can never buy class.
