'tis the season... to be injured (Injury Roundup Post)

So after reading about Dani Carvajal's injury, I just noticed, "Wow! Everyone's getting sidelined with an injury lately!" Most of them during the international break, too. How funny. *rolls eyes* Granted, these injuries might just be slight tweaks and are not as serious as we think (I HOPE.) But still, it's enough to pull them out of certain international and club matches. We wish these boys a speedy recovery!

Cesc Fabregas reveals he 'will always feel like a Gunner'.

Change of scenery: Midfielder Cesc Fabregas moved to Chelsea for £30million from Barcelona this summer

Cesc Fabregas admits he will always feel like a Gunner - despite a £30million move to Arsenal's London rivals Chelsea this summer.
The Spain playmaker has hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge, laying on four assists for his new team-mates already this season.
And - after leaving boyhood club Barcelona - Fabregas is looking forward to returning to his former north London stomping ground, albeit in the blue of Chelsea.

'I will always feel a Gunner and I know that I am going to return to [the Emirates Stadium] and I feel that it will be a special moment but I am committed,' Fabregas told El Pais.
'Remember that I played a Champions League final against Barcelona! I swear to you that I would have done anything to win that game even though I’d been Barcelona since I was a kid!
'So you know that when I play against Arsenal I will know who I am playing with, who my teammates are and who I will defend and I know that the Arsenal fans will understand; I have no doubt.'

The midfielder had a number of run-ins with Chelsea during his previous spell in England, and was more surprised than anyone to end up in blue.
He said: 'If you’d told me five years ago that I would play for Chelsea and Mourinho I would not have believed you, but life changes.
'I spoke with my agent and told him to find me a team. Chelsea’s offer arrived and for me it was about returning to London, the place where I did best.
'There was no better exit. I spoke with Mourinho and he told me things that I needed to hear. I felt valued, felt that I was going to be part of something important.'


Lol Cesc, just stop it.

UEFA president Platini voted for Russia and Qatar, says it was "the right decision."

UEFA president Michel Platini has said awarding the next two World Cups to Russia and Qatar was "the right decision."

Speaking to German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, Platini said he had voted for both host nations -- a decision he said he had taken for "the development of football."

Platini also told the paper he opposed European Union suggestions that the 2018 Russia World Cup should be boycotted because of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
