PIQUE TO CHELSEA? NO, NOT REALLY

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. Abraham Lincoln has had so many quotes wrongly attributed to him that using the above feels like balancing on a dangerous irony. Nevertheless, it's a good way of painting the sorry state of The Metro transfer rumours at the moment.

SANCHEZ UNHAPPY? LET'S HAVE A LOOK

Prior to the summer we weren't aware La Tercera existed. The furore surrounding Arturo Vidal prompted us at Sport Witness to check out what was being said in the Chilean press, and it gave some insight into the player's love for attention, his refusal to dismiss the rumours, and the state of his knee after a poor recovery from injury.

BEN ARFA NOW KNOWS HE HAD TO PUT EFFORT IN

Ah. Hatem Ben Arfa. That young bag of talent who will flourish and show the world that he was right when he said he'd emulate Lionel Messi.

CRYSTAL PALACE OR FANS NOT LIKELY TO END UP IN COURT

Roman Abramovich will be many things to many people. He looks like a relatively nice guy and, without digging too far into a pit we have no great interest in, that's good enough for the purpose of starting this. He doesn't look like a football bad guy and, in football, perception often wins out.

AWKWARD! MISUNDERSTANDING OVER FALCAO CELEBRATION

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao was an uncomfortable substitute on Monday night against West Brom. The Colombian came on toward the end of the match but will surely find himself a starter in games to come. International football travel had seen Louis van Gaal choose to start without Falcao but the performance of Robin van Persie left much to be desired.

ANCELOTTI FOR ARSENAL? LOOK AT REPORTS IN SPAIN

It's usually safe to put El Economista in the same bracket as El Confidencial when it comes to transfer rumours and such in Spain. They're not one of the worst gossips by a long way and sometimes have quite interesting stuff.
