Icelandic businessman Magnusson improves his group’s takeover offer of West Ham. Having gone this far, I will be surprised if all this takeover talk comes to nothing. Well, I guess it’s better than Kia Joorabchian.

Didier Drogba follows Mourinho’s lead and accuses Steven Hunt of trying to injure Petr Cech. I know when I think of sportsmanship, Didier Drogba’s the first name that comes to mind. Meanwhile, Mourinho claims the ambulance took over 30 minutes to arrive for Cech, and in the interim, he feared for Cech’s life. Of course, the NHS immediately refuted this, and blamed the Chelsea doctor for not using the stretcher as well. Overreaction meet Jose, Jose this is overreaction. Oh, you’ve already met? And yes, it does appear that Chelsea is doing all they can to throw away the good will they recieved following the Cech and Cudicini injuries.
