Essien Returns As Chelsea’s Fulcrum

Why is Michael Essien so underrated is a mystery to me. I must admit that I was nonplussed about him as a player, knowing next to nothing about him when he signed for Chelsea from Lyon in August 2005 for £24 million. That was in the dark days before I […]

Juninho Puts On Free Kick Scoring Clinic, Lyon 3 – 2 Nice

On Saturday Juninho showed why he is the master of the free kick after bringing Lyon single-handedly back into this one, with a clinical display of scoring from the deadball situation.
