The Rumour Mill
Abdoulaye Doucouré has been training on his own and was omitted from the squad that travelled to West Ham this past weekend after falling out with Frank Lampard according to a report.
Dominic King in the Daily Mail claims that the Mali international was barred from training with the rest of the first team following a dressing-room row after the home defeat to Southampton nine days ago.
Doucouré reputedly refused to let the matter drop, continuing the impasse at Finch Farm last leaving Lampard no option but to freeze him out.

I wonder if he signed Frank’s card ?
Another player who has been a big disappointment, he contributes absolutely sweet FA assist and goal wise, his passing is very hit and miss, and is hardly the swashbuckling ball carrying midfielder we thought we were getting, basically another bang average player who doesnt do anything particularly well
This could be a step in the right direction if we can get them altogether in a Southport Chinese restaurant.
We don’t need another Mongolian lamb to the slaughter like Sheedy
Gawd blimey it’s all going off.
I thought they’d all been banned from training they way they perform on the pitch.
