Forgotten Chelsea No 9 labelled 'the new Maradona' now plays in Turkey

Chelsea's No 9 shirt curse stretches back so far that you'd be forgiven for forgetting every player to have struggled while wearing it - and Franco Di Santo slips the mind more than most.He was given the honour, if it can be called that at this point, of being handed the shirt for the 2008/09 season, despite having just spent half a year in the Blues' reserve side. It would have come as a shock for not only the 19-year-old, but also the club's fanbase.But Di Santo had scored at a rapid rate in his youth team outings and also netted twice in pre-season.

Fans 'crying' as mad commentator's hysterical singing after Kevin Phillips goal resurfaces
goalgasms' are the funniest thing in football commentary, then oh boy, you ain't seen nothin' yet!Prepare yourself for the best minute-and-a-half of your week as an Argentine commentator legitimately loses his mind live on air after Kevin Phillips scores for Southampton against Chelsea in 2005.After starting with the customary elongated 'goooooaaal' we get from most Latin mic-men, he randomly bursts into song, providing viewers with a glorious rendition of The Rolling Stones' 1965 hit (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, replacing half the lyrics with 'Kevin Phillips'.Instead of the famous line, 'Cause I try, and I try, and I try, and I try, I can't GET NO', we get, "Kevin Phil, Kevin Phil, Kevin Phil, Kevin Phil, Kevin PHIL-LIPS," which to be fair rolls off the tongue just as easily as Mick Jagger's lyrics.What makes it even funnier is the way he stops abruptly mid-song and seamlessly transitions back into regular commentary when Didier Drogba breaks through on goal (watch the insanity in full below, for your own good).Even if he spoke in Spanish ever week, would be happy if this commentator took Robbie Savage's job at BT Sports? Let us know in the comments section below"This is absolute insane is he on drugs hahaha," one Twitter user wrote."Now that’s what we need more of instead of the dry depressed and biased commentary we have to suffer on sky.
Chelsea's richest bidders ranked including group richer than Man City's Sheikh Mansour
Chelsea is heating up, as the process of selling the club Roman Abramovich has owned since 2003 continues.Potential buyers have until 9pm on Friday (March 18) to submit their final bids to buy the club to The Raine Group, the investment firm handling the takeover process.Several bidders have already gone public with their interest in the club and intentions to bid, including Chelsea fan Nick Candy and former US ambassador to the UK Woody Johnson.Therefore, here is a ranking of the richest bidders hoping to buy Chelsea as the deadline looms.Ghanaian gold miner Bernard Antwi Boasiako confirmed his intention to bid to buy Chelsea earlier this week but may struggle to do so on his own.According to Football.London, Boasiako has a net worth of just £7.7million through his ventures in the gold and farming industries in Africa.The reported £3billion price tag slapped on Chelsea has not fazed, Boasiako, though, and he wants to restore stability at the club and continue the legacy of Didier Drogba and Michael Essien.Chelsea fan Nick Candy is understood to be organising and leading a consortium that will bid to buy Chelsea ahead of Friday night's deadline.The property tycoon shares a joint net worth of £1.5billion with his brother and business partner Christian and has recruited Blues legend Gianluca Vialli as part of his bid.Candy was present at last Sunday's 1-0 league win over Newcastle United and the season ticket holder has been vocal in his calls for the club to be in safe hands with fan representation on the board.The overall net worth and value of the Saudi Media Group is currently unknown, although the consortium is being led by Mohamed Alkhereiji, who is valued at £1.7billion.Alkhereiji and the Saudi Media Group are
