Chelsea playing Barca in the finals.

Chelsea beat Porto on pens. We came back from 5-2 down with 10 men, but lost 5-4.

We offered 3m for Ampadu, Exeter said no so we went to the tribunal. We now have to pay 1.3m rising to 2.5m with add ons.

Seems fair to me. Ampadu's father coaches the Arsenal U18 and since his arrival our academy has turned right around. Last night our U23 claimed the title and our U18's play you guys in the FA youth cup final. I think its fair to say Ampadu's father would have had a far greater influence on him that Exeter would have.

Why was he at Exeter in the first place?
