The Special One returns to Chelsea: After more (Inter Milan) and less (Real Madrid) spells elsewhere, Jose Mourinho signed a four year deal to return to Stamford Bridge. One wonders if he'll get on any better with his billionaire boss and how much change he'll ring before the season kicks off--speculation's already out there that Torres and Terry are goners and Essien will return to take the DM spot from Obi-Mikel. And maybe CR7? My main hope is that BetFair continues to back Special1 TV!

Apparently the first departure may not be Torres or Terry but David Luiz, for 30-35M to Barcelona or Napoli.

And they've had a tentative 20M deal to buy Andrea Schurrle from Bayern Leverkusen in place for a while.

With Jose Mourinho, Ian Holloway and Paolo diCanio, there should be some very fun press conferences in the EPL this season. Now I wish Sir Alex and Mancini were still there.

Don't forget Martin Jol.
