I think a way that at least England could cope with this is setting up a system similar to La Liga where Chelsea can have a B team competing in the Championship. It's likely that a player like Courtouis would still be in some top side, but most of those players mentioned would be better off competing for Chelsea Castilla against Sheffield.
Newcastle for sale?
Any Sunderland fans here? Opinions on Mignolet?
Anyone else think City will regret losing Tevez?
Tevez is a great player, and you can never have too many great players. I think they have similar players already, though, so I don't think it will hurt them too much.
I'd say it makes sense to sell Tevez now rather than in a couple years when he's worn down, but apparently City are only getting £8m plus escalators. So that's not it.
I wrote up a piece for CFC about football and component stats. Basically, I'm arguing that goals scored per shot on target, especially at the club level, is sort of like BABIP for pitchers in baseball. There are very important, real differences in skill between players and between clubs, but this variation is swamped by random variation over a sample of just a single season. (G/SoT for defenses is sort of like BABIP for hitters, it's a more useful stat that nonetheless is subject to wide swings by random variation.)

Cavani is officially on the move to Chelsea.
With Villa, Negredo and Soldado available, I have no idea why Spain are wedded to Torres as their striker. It's like they want to win WITH a handicap, just to make it sporting. Michu and Llorente are probably better options, too.
That doesn't explain why Torres is #2 of course.
