    Fifa had ruled the club could not sign players until 2011 after inducing Gael Kakuta to
    break his Lens contract.

    But Chelsea appealed to Cas, which said on Friday: "Such sanctions are now stayed
    until the Cas renders its final decision in this matter."

    The decision means Chelsea will be able to sign players in January.

    Am I alone in thinking that they will shake the market in January with at least
    one big, big signing in order to be ready for whatever the final decision could be?

    who? almost everyone who could make an impact would be cup-tied in europe. can see them picking up a couple of squad players but nothing more... utd are the team that needs to buy in jan.

    But if they're worried about next season, being cup-tied isn't relevant.

    Moreover, CL aside, they need to cover the Africa Cup misses.

    my point was more regarding the new signings perspective. who would want to leave a club playing in the last 16 of the cl to be cup-tied?

    i can see them going to france or germany and picking up a couple of decent young players.

    Maybe there's one or two more players from Lens that they have their eyes on.
