Anybody heard anything? I was speaking to a friend of mine on the phone today and he said he had heard a rumour it as quite serious and pretty long term. However he did make it very clear it was just a rumour AND he us a gooner!

ive heard its similar to essiens in the time he`ll be out, so i doubt we`ll see him again this season.

Last thing I heard was that the first medical tests showed that Cole has an injury that might mean that he's out for the season. Apparently they'll make another medical exam on friday (not sure if it's today or next week, but I guess the latter).

In other words, it looks like our only good winger is gone for a long time. If this doesn't make the club/Roman open their wallet to get another player nothing will.

Cole blow for club and country as Lampard blasts Chelsea crybabies

Joe Cole fears the knee injury he suffered at Southend could rule him out for two months and force him to miss vital club and international fixtures.

The midfielder limped off after his knee buckled in Chelsea’s 4-1 FA Cup replay win at Roots Hall on Wednesday and had a scan at the club’s training ground yesterday.

He is definitely out of tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League visit of Stoke and will have a further scan today if the swelling has subsided.

The fear is that he sustained ligament damage, which would rule him out of the key Liverpool trip a fortnight on Sunday and make him a serious doubt for both legs of Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Juventus on February 25 and March 10, as well as England’s friendly in Spain on February 11.

Doesn't sound good at all.

And still not even a hint of a new signing in the current transfer window.

When Joe pulled up it looked nasty and a little part of me thought it might actually have a positive effect by being the push Roman needed to bring someone in..still time but it is looking a unlikely.

I know that we are not a one trick pony, but I really think the loss of Joey, and no imminent replcaement in our team or being rumoured to be coming in....I think we will struggle. Looke like it will be Kalou and Malouda out wide, or Deco in behind the front two! Not the best, but our only options?

This is terrible news. I know I'm biased but with no Joe, I really can't see us opening teams up. That's pretty much how it seems as I write this and we're 0-1 down to mighty Stoke.

I fear our season is crumbling before our eyes.

Yeah - IF we do start playing the likes of Stoch, Kaku and Di Santo then there is hope. But all the time we rely on the likes of Ballack & insist on playing with a defensive midfielder, then we've got no chance.

But right now, I'm over the moon Brian!! (But still gutted for Joey)

Agreed Nibs, I've said almost as many times as you on here that I wouldn't play a DM against side that are gonna have a main gameplan of containing us...I certainly wouldn't play one and Ballack.

at least Stoch has given us a viable option and proved he's that even in that short time.

they played like a proper group today and like the Southend game it's almost a good thing they went behind from that point of view.

and as you say gutted for Joey.

I agree to, i remember Grant playing SWP as central mid with two wingers, someone like him and Kalou is what we need in these kind of games.
