thumbnail Hello,

The Blues' midfielder takes social swipe at the club after failing to secure a move over the summer, while Rafa van der Vaart scores on his German return plus injury updates galore

After being left out of Chelsea's Champions League squad, following a summer in which he was linked with a transfer away from Stamford Bridge, Florent Malouda has revealed he is to train with the reserve squad this season.

Elsewhere, Rafael van der Vaart swiftly moves on from his Tottenham exit, while Jose Enrique and Ashley Cole bemoan injury treatment, with Lucas Leiva also providing an update.

Gary Gardner gets ready for an operation, Sammy Ameobi tries to put a definition on 'cool' and Rio Ferdinand has some fun as he goes back to school. It's all here in Word on the Tweet...


"This is where I'll train for my last season with the blues !!!"

Florent Malouda provides what you could describe as a subtle dig towards Chelsea while posting a picture of their reserve team training ground. Make of that as you will.


"Yesterday played my first game again for HSV. Great feeling scoring my first goal!!"

Former Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart, who left the club as part of a summer upheaval, has moved on from the split much quickly than Spurs, scoring on his return to Hamburg.


“@Saksham18_LFC: @LucasLeiva87 Hows your treatment going?#YNWA” it is going well thanks.

Lucas Leiva delivers some good news for Liverpool fans as the midfielder indicates his recovery is going well when replying to one of them.


"Having treatment in the training ground. I hope my knee stop give me problem this year!!! So angry!!! ;((("

However it's injury woe for Reds' full-back Jose Enrique as he receives treatment during a training session. Do you think he's angry?


"another day of treatment, I'm bored of it now,"

Unfortunately for Chelsea, Ashley Cole is in a similar situation as the Englishman is tired of being injured.


"On the way to london, operation today will let use all know how it went after thank you for your messages of support means a lot,#illbeback!"

Aston Villa's Gary Gardner ‏is facing around eight months on the sidelines with a ligament problem, he expressed his thanks for the support before surgery.


"YESSSS! 1st day back at school for the lil men, oversize uniforms everywhere....flapping parents getting emotional...funny! Now to training!"

An oversized kit when playing as a youth-team member is one of the worst things that can happen. Well, Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand saw plenty of those on the opening day of the school run season.


"So many different interpretations of a 'cool' person! To me it's someone I admire, respect and who does the right thing when others wouldn't"

And finally, Sammy Ameobi gets all deep and philosophical in trying to define 'cool'.
