Benayoun – meeting his new team mates
Of course, the downside of garnering controversial inside knowledge is that it can land you on the front line, alone to face the barrage of knee-jerk abuse that comes with telling people something that they really don’t want to hear. Hence, much of the day has been spent learning not to take it personally when Liverpool fans call you a private part, just because you decided to pass on some rumours about Torres joining Chelsea.
Hence, it’s with a rather quivering typing hand that The Spoiler reports that Yossi Benayoun is heading off to Stamford Bridge as well. Presumably for a spot on the bench where Joe Cole used to sit.
Sorry, Liverpool fans.
